My fiancé and I loved Cruiseport Gloucester from the moment we stepped foot into the venue. The aesthetic of the venue is even more beautiful in person. The chandeliers, vaulted ceilings, hardwood floors and windows are fantastic and elegant - exactly the look we were going for. Cruiseport Gloucester is so beautiful inside and outside that we won't need to "break the budget" to decorate this venue. We met with Beth and she was amazing. She answered most of our questions without us even having to ask them! We met some of the other staff as well and everyone (from valet to the catering staff and everyone in between) was so friendly and pleasant. We loved that this venue is right on the water and has a gorgeous feel. The town is an adorable, quaint fishing town. We can't say enough good things about this venue and location. We are so excited to have our 2017 wedding at Cruiseport Gloucester!!

The Cruiseport was the first and only venue we looked at. When we looked into The Cruiseport the financial planning piece was easy. Taxes and fees were included, and there wasn't an up charge to plate our cake or some hidden service fee. We decided to bring along our parents for our first venue tour, and the second we walked in we knew we wouldn't need to go anywhere else. The Cruiseport features high ceilings, beautiful/big chandeliers, floor to ceiling windows overlooking the harbor, twinkly tea lights in every window, cozy fireplaces, and so much more. We loved it all. We met with one of the coordinators and worked on some pricing and set a date that day!

At our first meeting with our coordinator a few months prior to the wedding we were starting to get a little anxious and overwhelmed. That is when we met Tiffini White, and all of those negative feelings were gone. Tiffini was bright, bubbly, professional, and kind. She answered most of my questions before I even had a chance to ask. We left that meeting with an organized checklist to complete, and a much more positive and relaxed outlook. Tiffini was there for us anytime we needed her, and her response time was quick.

The day/night of our wedding we couldn't have been more happy. Everything looked perfect. Tiffini and her team paid attention to every little detail, and exceeded all expectations. Tiffini kept us organized and calm. So many of my friends and family commented on how accommodating everyone at The Cruiseport was all night. Whether someone needed a piece of tape or extra sauce someone was always right there to help. Vinwood caterers also exceeded all expectations. We received so much positive feedback about the food, and some of our guests inquired about hiring them for other events. We are so happy we chose The Cruiseport. We had the best day/night of our lives, and our friends and families did too!

We booked all of our wedding festivities through Cruiseport Gloucester and their partner properties from the wedding itself (ceremony and reception), to the rehearsal dinner on the Beauport Princess enjoying a sunset dinner cruise with dancing (highly recommend), to our accommodations at the brand new Beauport Hotel… and we are SO glad we did. Everything was absolutely magnificent and we could not have asked for a more perfect wedding weekend- even with all of the chaos that comes along with St. Peter’s Fiesta that happened to be the same weekend. For our wedding, we had the pleasure of working directly with Heather, our wedding coordinator, and she was absolutely fabulous and always on top of things. She made the entire planning process and wedding day go by absolutely stress free and without a hitch. Everything we envisioned in terms of décor was completely brought to life and truly breathtaking. The ambiance of the venue and classic and romantic décor touches made it feel like something out of a movie. Heather was very speedy and responsive with emails and phone calls (as are all of the coordinators there) and on the wedding day was always right there for us and made our night run so smoothly. The rest of the staff , including the bartenders and wait staff, were extremely friendly and provided excellent service. We heard great things when planning about the food catered by Vinwood, and we were not disappointed... the food was absolutely excellent! Guests raved about the Hors d’oeuvres (which were plentiful the entire cocktail hour) and the entrée’s (Prime Rib, Spring Chicken, Butternut Squash Ravioli). We received so many compliments from all of our guests with regards to everything- the food, venue, staff, etc. We are so happy we chose Cruiseport Gloucester as our venue, it truly could have not been more perfect. Thank you Heather and the rest of the Cruiseport Staff, you truly know how to set the bar in the wedding industry! Shauna and Marcus Levin. 6.25.2016

Cruiseport was fabulous! The level of service that we received was outstanding and our coordinator, Heather, could not have done a better job. She was responsive, professional and made us feel at ease throughout the entire process. On the day of the wedding, we were all blown away by the quality of the food, the presentation, the beauty of the venue and the amazing service. It was the perfect evening. Thank you!

This venue is worth every penny and we highly recommend them to anyone looking to get married in the Gloucester area.

The Cruiseport was everything I envisioned my Wedding to be. Tall ceilings, Beautiful hardwood floors, windows and fireplaces. It is just gorgeous Inside and out. Not to mention it is right on the water. All of the staff here were so professional and kind as well. My wedding planner was Heather and she was so awesome. Such a nice person to work with. Really got my vision and went above and beyond to achieve that. Always answered my questions or concerns asap. The food is just amazing here also. Everyone is raving about how delicious their meals were. I would highly recommend any couple to have their wedding here. It is simply a beautiful venue.

Cruiseport is the place to have your wedding if you would like an all-around fantastic wedding! First off, everyone at Cruiseport was so incredibly nice, easy to work with, flexible, and accommodating. The entire staff were simply wonderful and kind people. The venue is gorgeous, with great windows, very clean and elegant, with hardwood floors, painted walls, chandeliers, and two fire places. Our guests also said that it was some of the best wedding food they ever had. We had a winter wedding, and our guests have sent us a number of emails and Facebook messages saying that it was one of the best that they have been to, which I attribute a good deal to Cruiseport.

We had our wedding at Cruiseport on Halloween weekend and it was perfect. We booked the venue about 10 months in advance and were assigned a wedding coordinator to help us through the whole process. About three months before our wedding, the coordinator assigned to us left her position and we were assigned to someone else. It's safe to say that we were nervous that this was happening so close to our wedding date, but it turned out to be a blessing. While we liked our original coordinator, she had clearly been there a long time and wasn’t open to many ideas and kind of told us how she thought our wedding should go. Our new coordinator was Erica Curtis and we loved her! (As well as Heather, who was there helping our whole wedding day.) She helped us plan, gave suggestions when we needed it, and basically just handled everything. Obviously the weekend of the wedding can be a little hectic, but she had everything covered and I truly didn’t worry about anything after speaking with her during our drop off time, which was the day before. I wish I knew all of the names of the staff members who worked our event because they were all great and, truthfully, so kind. We did the ceremony, cocktail hour, pictures, and reception all in one location, which was so easy for us and for our guests. The venue is obviously beautiful, as you can see from all of the pictures, but I can’t say enough nice things about the whole experience and how easy planning our wedding through Cruiseport really was.
