We had our rehearsal dinner on the Beauport Princess. The boat was beautiful and the food was amazing. We had a lobster bake and our guests absolutely loved it! The tables were set beautifully with everything you needed to eat some lobster. Drinks were also very good. The DJ that was there that night also catered to us even though there were other people on the first deck of the boat. We had amazing weather and a beautiful sunset!

5 stars is an understatement for this venue and their staff. Working with event managers such as Ellen, Jamie and others from Cruisport made my weekend even more spectacular than I could have ever imagined. The room looked beautiful, everything was placed exactly where I wanted and the service was outstanding. I am still getting texts and calls from guests about the staff from Cruiseport. Ellen checked in with me multiple times throughout the night to hand me a drink or help with anything I needed. She set up the candy bar, late night snacks throughout the night without having to bother me with the process. I would recommend this venue to anyone, anyday! Thanks Cruisport for making m wedding the BEST DAY OF OUR LIVES!

Our wedding ceremony and reception were pure magic. Bridget was so very professional and accommodating. We even had a few last minute emergencies (like needing to find and new officiate only 10 days before the wedding) and she was amazingly helpful. When we showed up for the wedding, the venue looked absolutely stunning, vendors were coordinated perfectly and everything ran smoothly - and to my husband and me - it seemed like magic. The food was delicious. The staff was wonderful. This venue was worth every penny. We had a wonderful wedding and have Bridget and the Cruiseport staff to thank for it.

Ellen was our wedding coordinator for our special day. She not only coordinated our event, but she provided advice related to all parts of our wedding. Her upbeat personality made working with her so easy. I felt as if I gained a friend through this process. She was prompt to respond to any questions we had up until the day of the wedding. During the night of the wedding, she checked on us numerous times to make sure we were enjoying ourselves and were satisfied. Also there was a male member of the Cruiseport that made sure all out needs were take care of. We could not be happier with the gorgeous venue and service provided to us.

We used the Cruiseport as our reception venue and it was absolutely perfect. We couldn't be happier with the service we received both prior to and on the day-of the wedding! Our guests have raved to us that we had the best wedding ever and set the bar way too high, and I highly attribute this to Ellen (our wedding coordinator) and her staff at the Cruiseport. Their on-site caterer, Vinwood, had the most delicious food and the filet mignon was cooked perfectly - we had multiple guests rave about the food and especially the passed cocktails (bride prosecco and groom jameson/ginger!) Selling points for me were no wedding carpet (all hardwood floors, a dream for me! Plus more room for dancing!) the floor to ceiling windows with the tealights at night, and the beautiful deck just outside which our guests enjoyed on the perfect October night we had! I knew anytime that I reached out that I would receive a response as soon as possible, and Ellen did an amazing job of bringing my vision to life from the box of "stuff" that we dropped off on the day prior to the wedding. This is truly an amazing venue with a great staff and I would highly recommend this to anyone who wants to get married on the water!

The Cruiseport staff was amazing, and I highly recommend them. We had booked the Harbor View Room for a brunch the day after our wedding. We were on a tight budget, and the staff was very attentive to that. We, at different points, interacted with every member of Cruiseport’s wedding team, and each person was responsive and professional.

Unfortunately, our initial venue went bankrupt a few months before our wedding. We had no idea what to do, so we immediately called the Cruiseport to help wrap our heads around the situation. Bridget dropped everything to meet with us. She showed us all of the spaces for the wedding ceremony and reception, she offered to credit our lost deposit at the initial venue, and she helped us brainstorm about what we would do for hotel rooms and all of the other details. We ended up booking at a different venue that had hotel rooms, but we were very impressed with the Cruiseport.

We ended up changing the date of our wedding, and the Cruiseport seamlessly changed our brunch to the new weekend. The brunch itself was fantastic. People raved about the food, and the staff checked in regularly. They even served our leftover ice cream cake from the wedding reception the night before.

I highly recommend the Cruiseport for any event. They were the easiest vendor to work with and everything ran so smoothly.

Our wedding was amazing....and the process to get to the wedding day was wonderful, thanks to Ellen at Cruiseport Gloucester. When we went looking at wedding venues, we were blown away by the amazing venue, the responsiveness and kindness of the coordinators, and the value. We booked our date quickly as we were very happy with everything from the get-go. We knew we had found a gem! From the consultations with Ellen, to the emails, and step by step process, we couldn't have done it without Ellen. She is awesome and really has a passion for her job. Cruiseport Gloucester is not only beautiful, but the food through Vinwood Caterers (only option) was amazing at both the tasting and our wedding. Our guests were raving about our food from cocktail hour, dinner, and dessert. Everything was perfect. Our guests loved the views out back, the patio area during the reception, and the helpfulness and kindness of all the staff during our wedding was truly noted. I wouldn't change anything about our wedding at Cruiseport Gloucester. And, when you do pick Cruiseport, ask for Ellen. She is truly one of the best.

Can I give this review more than 5 stars? The Cruiseport Gloucester is just a beautiful venue with outstanding service. From the wait staff, complimentary valet, the patio with heated lamps, beautiful crystal chandeliers, no ugly carpets/ gleaming hard wood floors, chivalry chairs, beautiful linens, I can go on and on. I had the pleasure of working with Ellen and she was so focused on our wedding being the way we wanted. Her focus was to make us happy and thats exactly what she did. We had a Pakistani wedding reception that was new to Cruiseport and the venue assisted with setting up my stage, assisted with lining up the introduction (which could have been chaos because you were dealing with 17 girls); they took the time to understand tradition, culture and food. My parents were concerned with the food because they have never been but I have already been there 3 times for other weddings and the food was delicious. Anyways, Ellen set up a meeting with the chef and he was so detailed in explaining what they were making that my parents left there with their mouths watering. Ellen answered every call, every email: she truly made the planning more fun than stressful. And even during the wedding, I noticed she was on point with everything. Frequently asking Bobby and I if we needed anything, checked with our guests if they were fine. Here's maybe too much information: I had my Invisalign wrapped in napkin while I ate dinner, her staff cleared my table and Ellen managed to find it. Too much information? Maybe. But bottom line: Ellen, her team, her staff and Cruiseport as a whole were AMAZING! The best choice. I hope I get the opportunity to host another big event, maybe celebrate our 1 year anniversary and do it all over again :). Ok ... 25th :) xo Love you Cruiseport!!!

We walked into the Cruiseport and I knew immediately it was where I wanted to have our reception. The venue is absolutely beautiful, Ellen was our wedding planner and she was excellent, and the price was very reasonable compared to other venues we looked it. The food was great and our guests enjoyed having drinks on the outdoor deck. We had an amazing wedding day and I wouldn't change a thing.

I really can't say enough about my experience at the Cruiseport. Our wedding was absolutely perfect! We had some different ideas and Kathryn (Ellen, Beth) were extremely accommodating to our "vision." They handled every aspect with the utmost professionalism. I would HIGHLY recommend any couple that is looking for a gorgeous waterfront venue, an exceptional staff to make every step of your process an easy one, and to know that your wedding will be everything you imagined, to check out Cruiseport. My one complaint.....my wedding is over! Thank you to the entire staff for everything...you made our day more perfect than imaginable.
