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!!

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Cruiseport and our coordinator Heather. We were on a budget and all our decor was DIY,. I was expecting to come in and set it all up myself but they said they do it all for you! A wonderful and convenient service! The night before I dropped off a bunch of decor, some that had a plan and some that I just told her to do whatever with (bit disorganized and also I didn't really have a vision). The place looked STUNNING! They really went above and beyond to make our wedding flawless. The Vinwood food is incredible, the attention to detail unmatched and the venue itself is stunningly gorgeous. You barely need any decoration at all. Heather walked us through the rehearsal and made sure everything went perfectly smoothly. She understands that the couple has never planned or hosted a wedding before and her expertise guided us every step of the way. TRULY over the top service and a gorgeous venue to hold our wedding at. I could not believe everything they did for us, it was amazing. Another nice thing for planning: no hidden fees. All gratuity, service charges and taxes are all included in the face value prices...no surprises later. And if you're having a winter wedding, no one beats their off-season discount. Truly the best value out there!

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!

Beautiful venue with attentive, accommodating and kind staff. Jamie was so great to work with. Being the first of our friends to get married we had a lot of questions- we were in great hands at the Cruiseport! Each detail was attended to. Our guests had nothing but wonderful things to say. Wish we could relive it all over again.

I am SO happy my husband and I decided to go with Cruiseport for our wedding day. We were overwhelmed by all the venues and choices we had to make. When we walked into cruiseport we just had a feeling this would be the venue we would end up getting married at. Compared to other venues we had looked at, we felt like we got so much more for our money. Heather was great, she was so easy to talk to and very flexible. Wedding planning was all new to me. I emailed the office several times asking for advice and with questions about the process and always received a quick response from one of the girls. The day of the wedding when I walked into the cruiseport I was in shock - the room looked beyond amazing, I couldn't believe this was all for us. 4 months later and i am still hearing how beautiful our wedding was and how amazing the food was. Thank you Cruiseport! You made our wedding day perfect!

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

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.
