Donna was the planner assigned to our wedding. I could not have asked for a friendlier helper. She helped with every question we had and accommodated all of our needs. She seemed genuinely interested in the success of our event and our relationship. She relieved a lot of the stress of the planning and made working with Electra a breeze.

We are a gay couple and she was able to assure us that all of the vendors would be fine with that and made sure our experience was smooth. We had our wedding on the Athena with about 70 people and it was beautiful. We did the evening cruise which provided the perfect opportunity for sunset photos and was a great size for the number of people we had. From the table cloths to the bartenders, our event was beautiful largely because of the professionalism and ability of the Electra staff.

Electra cruises was an absolutely pleasure to work with. Both my husband and I have family from out of state. Essentially the wedding planning process fell on the two of us. Electra cruises is a one stop shop type of venue. They make it so easy to pick what you want in the most cost effective way.

Donna was an amazing help. She treated us like her own children and was completely honest with what we should and shouldn't spend our money on. She was quick to respond to emails and made us feel like we weren't just another customer.

Mona was our day of coordinator. I was worried not having contact with the coordinator until the week of the wedding, but she did a fantastic job. Once I came aboard the boat, she made sure both my husband and I were taken care of and that the night ran smoothly.

All in all Electra cruises was the best experience we have had! All of our guests, both young and old, complimented us on having the most incredible wedding they have ever attended. Yes we did a lot of planning to ensure it would be a great experience for everyone, but Electra cruises really put the icing on the cake with their beautiful venue and amazing service.

I just wanted to write a brief summary of my experience using Electra Cruises Inc. in Newport Beach Ca. for my wedding on May 24th 2014. Our wedding planner Donna Lacey was warm, friendly and very thorough. She greeted us with hugs each and every time we stopped in to inquire about the details. The entire staff was very accommodating to our needs when we needed to check the Newport Princess yacht for measurements and such. We had nearly 70 people attend and every one of them thought it was one of the most memorable weddings ever. The wedding coordinator Maribel saw to it that the evening ran smooth and all family and guests needs were met. The food was absolutely delicious and the suggested music (DJ Von) and photographer (Photography by Sylvie) were perfect choices for an awesome evening.

I would recommend Electra Cruises for anyone considering a unique all in one wedding package while floating around beautiful Newport Harbor. The staff definitely knows their job well and you will feel very well taken care of.
All the best,
Scott and Magali Lewis

Electra Cruises and their services are beyond amazing! They truly have the wedding formula down to a tea! From beginning to end their work is exceptional! We booked with Susan and she was perfect throughout the entire planning process! From email, phone calls and unscheduled visits, she always greeted us and devoted 100% of her time planning our special day! She and Karen (our event coordinator for the big day) made our day truly magical! Karen took care of all the details that we as brides tend to forget and both made our experience incredible! Michael and I don't have enough kind words to express our gratitude to them! Love them for making our day magical!

Wow!!! I suggest this to all of my newly engaged friends. When I was researching weddings the average cost is about $27,000. We did our wedding (including everything except the ring & dress) for $17,000. It was the most beautiful venue I have ever seen. We were married on the Athena Yacht on March 15, 2014 at noon. It was a day made for us. Our coordinators Tabatha & Mona made the day flow by effortlessly and made sure to include all of our requests. We even ride off on a gondola!!!! It was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. This is so unique & romantic.

Wow, What can I say, Electra is amazing. They helped us pull off a wedding in six months and everything was perfect. From day one they walked us through the entire process and made it completely painless. Our Wedding planner Donna was always available for questions and helped us make the right choices. The Dj, florist, food, minister, cake, were all fantastic. I haven't received the pictures yet, but The photographer was friendly and active. Most of my guests told me that it was the most fun they have ever had at a wedding. I can't say enough good things about Karen our on-the-day coordinator. Her professionalism and demeanor put my wife and I at ease. She did so many things that I don't have room to write them here. But my favorite was when she brought food for my wife and I to the sweetheart table. We just got up to walk around the tables to greet everybody. She waited until we got back to the tables and brought us new warm food.

I could not recommend Electra Cruises more! Our planner, Allison, was super friendly and responsive to all our questions and concerns. Our day-of coordinator, Mirabel, was very professional. She made sure that I had nothing to worry about - many people commented that we were such a calm bride and groom. I have no doubt that this was because of Allison and Mirabel! Electra is a well-run company and our wedding/reception above the Newport Princess was seamless. Numerous guests have complimented us on having such a fun and unique wedding!

Too good to be true? Trust me, Electra IS this good! Expectations were surpassed, budgets were maintained, and it was smiles all around. The groom and I grew up in CA but now reside out of state. Our biggest priority was locating an affordable wedding venue that could remove a lot of the worry and guesswork out of wedding planning. Queue Electra and golden trumpets - the staff was fantastic, the services were top notch, and our guests and families were blown away with the final result. Electra's selection of partnered vendors (officiant, DJ, photography, florist) was extensive - it was wonderful to have a choice but not have to choose out of the yellow pages. And I have to say, everything was SO great from the start that we almost found ourselves bracing for some unanticipated charge, expense or let down. You know what they say about things being too good to be true... but I'm happy to report that all expenses and services went exactly as planned and agreed upon. Thanks for making me look good, Electra. Now everyone thinks I'm fit to be a wedding planner!

We searched high and low for a reasonable priced vendor and we never thought it would be on a boat in Newport Beach! Electra Cruises is amazing! From start to finish it was great. Tabatha was our sales coordinator and Karen was our day of coordinator. Working with Tabatha was great, because my mom had a million questions and always had an answer for her quickly. Karen was fantastic because she doesn't miss a thing. My mother and I were able to enjoy every minute of the wedding because Karen had everything under control. Along with our DJ, she kept everything moving. The staff on the boat was impeccable! Our cocktail service was flawless, and they even brought us some upstairs while we were taking pictures! Throughout the night I just drank water because of all the dancing. There was this one server that every time I turned around he had a glass of ice water for me. It just blew me away. Everyone on that boat wanted to make sure that my husband and I had a wonderful and memorable time, which we did. I recommend Electra Cruises for any type of event you are having. You will not be let down!

So this was a second wedding for both myself and my now husband. We were over the big church idea and let's face it, that can get expensive. I wanted to do something fun and different. After looking at many options online I stumbled across an ad for Electra. Best thing I could have done. I called and set up an appointment with Allison and we went to meet with her and see the boats. Everybody there was so great! We put down our deposit that day. The date we wanted was open on the Newport Princess which was our top choice. Allison was amazing in the year that she had to put up with me and my crazy questions. Who else is going to ask you the length of the front railing besides me? She was always super responsive even when I always seemed to email her on her days off she got back to me as soon as she was back in the office. We went back to do some checking and some more checking a few times throughout the year. We never had a problem. Let me start with vendor night: What an amazingly easy way to do things! One night and you get to meet all of your vendors and try the food? Awesome!! We walked away with everything but our florist decided and booked that night!! (see my other reviews). Fast forward a year and it's time for rehearsal. Mona was our coordinator. She was awesome! The only complaint I have about this process was that it was a bit difficult to get our wedding party to rehearsal on a weeknight in the middle of the week and we were actually missing quite a few people. Some were caught in traffic, others just couldn't get out of work yet and some hadn't arrived from out of town. But our wedding day was perfect and I couldn't have asked for anything more. The staff on board was great, the food was amazing, the bartenders were fun and we had perfect SoCal weather. What an amazing experience. Our guests all enjoyed something other than the "normal" and it was carefree and super easy for me!

My wedding was amazing!! Everybody was so nice and professional. The only negative was my coordinator Marissa. She messed up the timing of my entrance even though we specifically told her that it was very important. She was very nonchalant about everything. We wanted somebody confident, not someone who just didn't seem to care. All in all the boat was beautiful, the staff was awesome and the food was unforgettable. My family is still talking about what an amazing time they had

My wedding day was pure magic. All the staff was friendly, food was great , and hot, guests loved being on the boat and cruising the harbor. The best time of our life and even small concerns we had that day were handled with pure professionalism and fixed fast. We did not have to worry about any setting up or where to go, the wedding planner was there for each magical step. We loved our special day and would recommend this to anyone looking to get married. Our guests are still talking about it and its been 2 months

I am so glad that we decided to have our wedding here. It was the best day ever. The whole day ran so smoothly thanks to the amazing coordination of all of the vendors led by the day-of coordinator. While Electra Cruises allows outside vendors, I HIGHLY recommend choosing from their list of vendors. They do weddings on the boats all of the time and they are so familiar with the way the wedding runs and they all work together to help each other out to ensure a perfect and smooth wedding. The fleet has 5 wonderful boats and we had our wedding on the Destiny which is their most popular ship. I highly recommend this venue if you are able to afford it! :)

Electra Cruises, you ROCK!!! We got married on the Destiny on Saturday evening (9/22). Everything about our wedding was magical and it truly was the perfect day! They made the planning so easy and the day itself was completely stress free. Heather (our Coordinator) and Karen (our day of Coordinator) were beyond amazing. The boat itself is well maintained, so classy, and the staff is fabulous. SO many of our guests have said that it was the BEST wedding they have ever been to. Thank you so much for everything!!!

I got married last summer aboard the Destiny yacht and I have to say it was a great decision! If you are on the market for a yacht wedding, there is no more modern and beautiful vessels than the ones at Electra cruises. They are very organized and have many preffered vendors to choose from. We did use many of them, and they did a great job, but opted for our own photographers and videographer (great decision!) Our wedding ran smoothly and everyone had a great time. The food was tasty and plentiful. If you want to score a deal, be sure to talk to the owner. We talked to him several times and he is great and really helped us out with many aspects of our wedding. Great venue, I would highly recommend!

I had Susan Pereda as my Agent for planning my Wedding at Electra Cruises. Susan is one of the most organized & sweetest person I've met in terms of planning for my big day. Since day one, she has been there for me from beginning until the end. Susan has been on top of all with my needs. She is very helpful and quickly to respond to you via email or phone. When I had concerns and when I would have questions to ask her she would answered me back promptly. She is a very hard working lady. On the day of my wedding, my guest couldn't stop talking about how beautiful and unique it was for us to have a yacht wedding. Overall, I am happy with my agent Susan and glad I had my wedding at the Eternity Yacht, Electra Cruises.

I wanted to give a huge Thank You to everyone at Electra Cruises!! Our wedding was last Sunday 8-19-12 aboard "The Athena" & everything could not of been more perfect! Donna was such a great wedding planner, Captain Torre Niles was perfectly suited for my husband & I for our ceremony(he's hilarious), Lavonnes Florist does a phenomenal job on their flowers, so fresh & so beautiful, DJ Von was right on top of things & made the wedding so much fun, Jerry Kelly, was an exceptional photographer, that completed our photo shoot in such a timely manner, Cinderella cakes are wonderful, not to mention ALL the food is great. My coordinator, Mona was simply THE BEST...she did an extraordinary job at making sure everything ran so smooth (Kim had a perfect person to train her on her very first wedding). And finally the entire staff on-board was exceptional...so organized & so professional...our guests commented that, "It was the best wedding EVER"!! Definitely a dream come true for Matt & I, we can't thank you all enough;o)
I would recommend Electra Cruises to anyone that is looking for a fairytale wedding & a stress-free day;o)

I had a destination wedding all through Electra Cruises. I started planning about 8 months out. They give you a wedding coordinator for the planning stage, and then a separate coordinator for the day of. My first coordinator for the planning I just wasn’t clicking with, and was getting kind of frustrated. I contacted the company and they very easily and nicely switched me to a new coordinator.

My new coordinator was Heather and I just LOVE her. She was really quick to respond to all questions and emails. My mother also talked on the phone with her often. She was so helpful, kind, and just great all around. Me and my now husband could only go out and visit for a few days, and she was so great in arranging everything we had to do in those days.

My day of coordinator was Cat who was absolutely amazing as well. She was so calm and explained everything. She set the whole place up to look absolutely beautiful the day of the wedding. I had a surprise for the groom and she was so good at keeping it hidden and then presenting it to him. At the end of the night she had everything packed up and ready to be taken off the boat. We were not in any way rushed off, and everything was so relaxed (as it can be!) and great for the wedding day.

I would highly recommend Electra Cruises, Heather, and Cat to everyone. They have a list of vendors to make planning very easy, but you can also bring in your own vendors if you would prefer. At the food tasting I was less then impressed, but the day of the wedding the food was amazing. (I am a professional chef, and had chef friends there who also really enjoyed it).

I was on the yacht Electra, and had about 25 people at the wedding. It was absolutely perfect for the size group I had, as it wasn’t a huge space that my wedding felt empty. I also used Mission Visual for video, and Mike Silvestri for DJ both of whom I would recommend as well.

I got married and had the BEST day of my life aboard the Destiny on June 8th!
Everything was AMAZING. I could not have asked for a more perfect day. Susan was my coordinator from the start and Karen was my Day Of Coordinator, both ladies were fantastic! Susan answered email after email after email in a very timely manner and Karen was absolutely on top of things the day of. (I put together my own time line of events, and she definitely tried to follow it to a tee)!

Vendors:
I used all Electra Vendors and I was thrilled with all of them!

1.) Susan and Karen, Coordinators (AMAZING!!)

2.) Captain Torre, was our Officiant GREAT! (Little mishap with my husbands last name, but hey... stuff happens)

3.) Von, DJ (OMG I loved him!! He even made me a CD of my wedding music!)

4.) Robert Acton, Photographer (He was amazing, really knows his stuff and my entire family and friends all loved him! They are still talking about how great he was)

5.) In Bloom, Flowers (Flowers were beautiful and Summer was Superb)

6.) Cinderella Cakes (Our cake was AMAZING! We did Marble with Chocolate Chip filling for the bottom tier, and White Cake with Toasted Coconut filling for the other tiers. YUMMO!!)

7.) Food!! We went with the "All American Buffet" BBQ Ribs, Fried Chicken, Baked potatoes, Corn on the cob. It was AWESOME!! All of our guests LOVED, LOVED, LOVED, our food! We had Bruschetta, Chicken Skewers, and Spinach & Artichoke on crisps for tray passed apps! Oh the food was excellent!

All in all, we had an amazing time, and all of my guests LOVED it! I felt like a total Princess on my wedding day and I really owe a huge thanks to everyone who helped make our day so special!

I would absolutely recommend this company to anyone who wants a total hassle free, easy to plan, perfect wedding!

I worked with Allison to plan our wedding, and it could not have been easier. She answered all of my questions promptly and organized a beautiful event. I was so pleased that our wedding was able to be so true to our style even while having Electra handle all the dirty work! They did such a great job! Cat, my day-of coordinator was able to make everything run so smoothly! I didn't have to worry about a thing except enjoying myself! I also organized the wedding from a distance, and Electra was so dependable in all aspects and was able to make the process smooth as can be. I would recommend Electra to any bride who wants less stress and worry and more fun and excitement! People always talk about how stressful wedding planning can be, but I was only stressed about getting my DIY items done in time because everything else was taken care of. I loved working with Electra!

Eleectra Cruises deserve more than 5 Stars. Our wedding coordinator was Heather and the coordinator on our wedding day was Karen. Both of them were nice and quickly responded to my questions and concerns, without giving me an attitude. They were professional and competent. Everything that we were promised became reality. We got married at the Yacht Athena, our guests loved the view and the food. We had New Wave Chicken, Salmon and Scalloped Potatoes. The garden salad was great. Overall, we received a lot of compliments!

We were married aboard the Electra Yacht on April 3rd, 2012, and it was absolutely perfect. My husband and I were engaged for 13 months, changed the wedding date once with Electra, and we were also planning our wedding out of state. Everyone at Electra was very friendly, and super courteous. I couldn't recommend them more, they worked with us very well and communicated very fast. The food was absolutely delicious, and we used their DJ Von, who was great! Did I mention how good their food was? My sister was also married through Electra Cruises 3 years ago, and the food was delicious then as well.

The yatchs are beautiful. We didn't get the original yatch we requested thanks to the coast guard but Electra Cruises was able to put us on another yatch just as beautiful and accommodate for the issue. One of the best days of my life will never be forgotten. All of our guest loved the wedding and said it was something new that they can tell their kids and family down the road. I will do it again for an anniversary.

So I had my wedding yesterday and I am still on this high that I cant come off of.I have been dealing with this company for about a year I gave them 5 stars because I was happy by the way that things turned out. Here is how everything went:

I used my mostly own vendors for things because I felt more comfortable. Cinderella cakes were awesome from beginning to end and they were the first ones to arrive. I am not really a cake person, but overall people were telling me the cake was really good.

The food was very good from the little that I ate. The coconut prawns hands down were the winner and the egg rolls were great as well. We had a buffet of fried chicken that were seasoned very well and beef tri-tip with jack daniels bbq sauce. I LOVED the garlic mash and I think I was not the only one. It was a ton a food. Oh and Jason the manager threw in chocolate covered strawberries for free and people really enjoyed that too.

People must of thought I spent a fortune on this wedding. I heard words like, classy, elegant and fun from some of my guest. The weather and the views were spectacular, I took some time by myself to go to the top of the boat to take all of the view in. I can say, I will NEVER forget how beautiful the bay was. I heard sea otters, but I could not find where they were.

Lastly, my wedding coordinator was really great, Donna, did her best to work with me, she even stopped by on the yacht to see me off. The staff was friendly and my day of coordinator was on point, Maribel or Marissa, I cant remember. She packed everything up for us so we would be ready to get off when it was time.

Do be ware that it is mandatory to pay $7/per person for free flowing soda, juices and ice tea, which is somewhat of a waste, because a majority of my guess drank water, also you have to get 2 bartenders at $150 each.

I would totally work with this company again!!!!

There's really nothing more I could say than our wedding was perfect, thanks to Lorraine and all the electra cruises staff!!!!!! We lived cross-country, and all their recommended vendors, and "tasting night", made it so easy to plan an event from 3,000 miles away. Any question I had was answered within minutes, with Lorraine being the best coordinator EVER! She made our wedding flawless! On the day of, we were provided with a separate wedding coordinator, Karen, who was also amazing! Her calmness and attention to details made our whole night flawless. Our wedding was aboard the Eternity, and it is definitely worth the extra pennies to upgrade from one of the smaller yachts. Our guests were wowed, and the whole night was perfect thanks to Electra Cruises! Just don't be afraid to use some of your own vendors, too, as some of theirs seem outdated.

Electra Cruises was such an amazing venue for my wedding! Not only was it such a unique venue but the service was phenominal! From the very beginning the staff at Electra Cruises was super friendly and had exceptional customer service. They truly made me feel like I wouldn't have to worry about anything on the day of my wedding...and I didn't.

All the staff in the office was friendly and the staff aboard our yacht was superb and attentive, including Maribel, our wedding day coordinator. She took care of everything and made sure the whole day went smoothly. The food was amazing and we received many compliments on it.

The fact that Electra Cruises provided a choice of vendors made things so much easier and more convenient. All the vendors I used, provided through Electra Cruises (Carrie Zeller photographer, DJ Raul, LaVonne's florist, Cinderally cakes, and Captian Charles Peiper) were amazing and provided high quality service!

Also, Lorraine, our event coordinator, was a joy to work with. She answered all of my questions in a timely manner and never made me feel as though I was bugging her or asking too many questions.

If you want a unique venue with superb service and great value for cost, Electra Cruises is THE place!

Electra Cruises was a godsend! We were on the Eternity and couldn't have asked for a better day. Allison took care of all our details leading up to the day, and Victoria executed the day-of details perfectly. Our guests were "wowed" by the ship, the food, and how smoothly everything transitioned from ceremony to lunch to cake cutting and so on. We loved each and every one of our vendors, and Allison put together the perfect package for us.

The only thing we would have changed was the amount of time. The 4 hours flew by! We read this from other reviews, and wish we had booked the extra hour.

If you're looking for a 1st-class venue and an inclusive wedding package that won't break your budget, definitely give Electra Cruises a call.

We got married on the Destiny in October 2010 and we highly recommend this place! Before we went to look at the yachts we were really not that interested in being on a boat since my husband and I both get motion sickness. And we were on such a tight budget, we didn’t think a nice place like this was affordable. Wow were we wrong! This was actually the best value for the money and we never even knew that we were moving! Our consultant before the wedding was fantastic, her Name is Maureen. Overall, we had a great time here and think it was perfect! And everyone always thinks that we spent more than we did for how elegant it was!

I cannot express how good Electra is...from the boat..to the captain to the wait staff and everyone in the Elctra office! Thank you for making my day carefree and memorable!

It was the best decision we ever made. We were married on the yacht Electra and it was just fabulous. Our rep, Heather helped us with the planning every step of the way and was very sweet. Our coordinator the day of the wedding, Karen, was just fantastic. She was there at our side all day to make sure we had everything we needed. The food was wonderful. And the day was absolutely perfect. All of our guests raved about the whole wedding from start to finish and said they never had so much fun. I recommend Electra Cruises highly. Thanks, Electra!

We were married aboard Destiny. We enjoyed every moments of our wedding. All our guests were happy. Maureen was our agent. She is the nicest person you can ever meet. She was very helpful from the day we first met her to sign the contract. She gave us so many helpful advices. Our coordinator Susan was exceptional. We don’t have enough words to describe how great Susan was. She went beyond her responsibilities to make our wedding nice and smooth. All the staff who works at the Yacht was very professional with great smile. We recommend DJ Roy, he was great. Mike video is very professional. We haven’t seen the video yet but we have a good feeling it will be very good. Cinderella cake delivered the wrong color cake but we weren’t to upset about it. The cake was ok.

We are very disappointed with our photographer, Jerome Kelly. We would not recommend his service at all. Over all we had great time.

We were married aboard Destiny. We enjoyed every moments of our wedding. All our guests were happy. Maureen was our agent. She is the nicest person you can ever meet. She was very helpful from the day we first met her to sign the contract. She gave us so many helpful advices. Our coordinator Susan was exceptional. We don’t have enough words to describe how great Susan was. She went beyond her responsibilities to make our wedding nice and smooth. All the staff who works at the Yacht was very professional with great smile. We recommend DJ Roy, he was great. Mike video is very professional. We haven’t seen the video yet but we have a good feeling it will be very good. Cinderella cake delivered the wrong color cake but we weren’t to upset about it. The cake was ok.

Our wedding was amazing and people are still commenting on how it was such a wonderful and unique wedding! The service was great, food was yummy and everything was set up just how my husband and I wanted it! If we had to do it again we would not change one thing except maybe adding just an extra half hour to hour, it went by too fast!! :)

We were married aboard The Athena on March 27, 2010 and it was PERFECT!!! Electra Cruises is a wonderful company to go through to plan your wedding! Maureen was our coordinator and she was fabulous She responded to every single email... even if it was silly like- what is the dimensions of a window! She was so flexible and helpful! She gave me great decorating advice to help cut the costs and really took her time to explain all of your different options to us. The staff was wonderful also! At the end of the night they helped carry all the center pieces and things to the car- they went above and beyond in every way!!! The cruise was awesome and everyone says its the best wedding they have been to!! I highly recommend Electra Cruises! You will not be disappointed!!

I have absolutley no complaints about this venue! Julie Hermes was my representative and she was just awesome! I had a strict budget of $10,000.00 and Electra Cruises made it happen. We used the yacht Electra which was beautiful! My favorite part was the spiral staircase that goes up the back of the boat. This boat looks its best at night when its all lit up inside. There are windows everywhere so you can always see the scenery and the boat gives off a beautiful glow. The staff took care of everything and I never had to ask for anything! They made my night so carefree! They were always right there to help me out when I needed it. I was overjoyed with my wedding experience. Thank you guys so much! <3 Patricia (bride)

I don't even know where to start. They are absolutely the best value for the money. And you don't lose any professionalism or attention to detail with the value. We had our wedding between 12:00 and 4:00 PM on the yacht Athena and are still hearing rave reviews (one of our friends actually asked if it would be ok with us if they copied our wedding because they were so impressed). I could go on forever but the best idea is for you to go down and meet with them. You will not be disappointed. We had about 80 people total with a 2 entree meal, hor d'oevres and an open bar.

Electra Cruises provided the most amazing venue for our wedding. We were on the Crystal, the most beautiful yacht on the Harbor. The staff was amazing to work, and made our day perfect. It is a wonderful place to get married and includes alot of the little details that can stress you out. It included Food, Drinks, Linens, DJ, Cake...and a vendor list they typically work with. Electa Cruises made planning our wedding easy. Everyone is still talking about how amazing the boat, staff and food was. I highly recommend it. The only think I would change is to make the time on the boat longer. The package is for 4 hours. I wish I had 6.

I could not have found a better place for my wedding. If you are working with a smaller budget or even if you are splurging, Electra Cruises is perfect. You take a 4 hour cruise around the Newport harbor which is beautiful and the best background for a ceremony and reception. They include the cake, flowers, food, etc. in their pricing. They make it really easy on the bride. They give you a list of recommended vendors and you go through them. All the vendors I used were fantastic and were there to do what my husband and I wanted for our wedding. I would recommend Electra Cruises to anyone.

First and foremost, Thank You, for making our wedding day just PERFECT for US. Lorraine(coordinator) and Electra's staff were helpful, courteous, understanding, and made our wedding day extra wonderful! Words can not
express the gratitude that we have for Electra's staff; everyone made us feel like a true Prince & Princess on our
BIG DAY. Our day-of coordinator is exceptionally good at her work.She was not only understanding, but helpful beyond
our expectations, and she made sure every single detail I had requested was met! We are incredibly happy, and thankful for choosing Electra to host
our Wedding. It really was perfect, there were no mistakes, everything ran smoothly, and our guests can not stop raving about how much fun, and how elegant
our wedding was. The food was superb, the cocktails didn't run out..jaja...the bartender was super friendly, and the waiters were courteous; EVERYONE, made our DAY
EXTRA SPECIAL!!

I definitely recommend this Venue for any special event.

One of the reasons why we went with Electra cruises was because of the ease of planning. The packages are very customizable to any budget. They have vendors' day where you pick out your florist, officiant, DJ, photographer, baker, and videographer. You also get to do a food tasting on the same day. All vendors are paid through Electra cruises and that includes tip. This makes paying for the wedding and tipping really easy. I really liked how you get a wedding coordinator with your package. Mine was Elizabeth, who was super-duper helpful on my big day.

Everything went great, and the food was marvelous. Our guests had a wonderful time.
I'd like to thank you for all your help along the way. And especially for letting us drop off our wedding favors/items the night before. That was a real life saver due to the fact that everyone was essentially coming in from out of town and at different times. I can't imagine how Michael and I would have gotten those things over there easily on the morning of the wedding! You were a joy to work with and have a way of keeping things calm - which is exactly what a bride needs!
If you talk to Nikki, give her my thanks again. She did an absolutely fabulous job and was a joy to be around! I would highly recommend her to others.
There is one thing that I'd like to bring to your attention. There was another wedding there at noon for ''Liz and James.'' My niece (who was in charge of the guest book) told me that guests were coming up to our wedding and were confused. There are some signatures in our guest book of people we don't know (Yvonne Roberts, Ricky Roberts, Robin Orbanova-or something). We did not receive any gifts or money that do not belong to us though, so I don't think they have to worry. However, there are 3 or 4 people that attended our wedding that we have not received gifts from yet (God, that sounds so monetary and horrible!) I am only bringing this 4p because of the confusion - I hope there was not a mix-up. (People can't handle 2 Liz's in the same place!) Not sure what to do - should we just wait?
Anyhow, thanks again for making our wedding so much fun!
Sincerely,
Liz and Michael
P.S. A girl I kept running into (Natalie) at the bridal shop, tasting, etc. - she has the same dress and is getting married on the Destiny this Sunday (the 8th). I hope they have a great wedding!

There is one thing that I'd like to bring to your attention. There was another wedding there at noon for ''Liz and James.'' My niece (who was in charge of the guest book) told me that guests were coming up to our wedding and were confused. There are some signatures in our guest book of people we don't know (Yvonne Roberts, Ricky Roberts, Robin Orbanova-or something). We did not receive any gifts or money that do not belong to us though, so I don't think they have to worry. However, there are 3 or 4 people that attended our wedding that we have not received gifts from yet (God, that sounds so monetary and horrible!) I am only bringing this 4p because of the confusion - I hope there was not a mix-up. (People can't handle 2 Liz's in the same place!) Not sure what to do - should we just wait?
Anyhow, thanks again for making our wedding so much fun!
Sincerely,
Liz and Michael
P.S. A girl I kept running into (Natalie) at the bridal shop, tasting, etc. - she has the same dress and is getting married on the Destiny this Sunday (the 8th). I hope they have a great wedding! Read less

We absolutely loved Electra Cruises! We got married on Destiny and it was perfect. The staff was beyond amazing and very accommodating, I can't believe how wonderful they were. I would recommend them in a heartbeat to anyone who was looking for an all inclusive stress free wedding.

I had my wedding aboard the Eternity yacht at Electra Cruises on June 30, 2012 at 6:00 pm. I booked a year in advance as the weekends get booked fast. My planner was Heather Guinther and she responded to all emails, phone calls, and met with me anytime leading up to my wedding.
When picking my vendors they encourage you to go with their preferred vendors which I visited with them all. I did not go with their DJ, marrying captain or photographer, which they urge you to do but I found some vendors that I preferred to use and I wanted to use my own pastor. I am so glad I went with my own DJ as I wanted a party and none of the DJs they had gave me the vibe that they would have the party lively and have everybody dancing, but I did have him go look at the boat before so he knew what equipment he needed to bring. I strongly urge you to do that with your DJ if you bring in an outside DJ.
I did go with their Videographer and their florist, Designs by Marina. I went to visit with most of their recommended florist and Marina was the best by far. I told her my vision and she gave me her input. Her prices were also the cheapest by far and on the day of the flowers were gorgeous.
Please keep in mind that when you get your estimate from Electra Cruises, you will have to keep in mind that you will probably spend more on flowers, photos, and a videographer if you want the upgraded packages which I did.
I also paid the extra money to get an extra hour as the standard 4 hours was not going to be enough for me. We did get through the wedding, dinner, and formalities in 4 hours but I wanted more time to party!
On the day of, my wedding coordinator was Mona and she was phenomenal. She took over and made sure everything went smoothly. There were times she would come pull me and my husband to the side to let us know it was time to cut the cake and any other things that needed to get done. She kept everything on schedule and running smoothly so I wouldn’t have to stress.
My entire guest loved the wedding and raved how this was the best wedding they had been to by far. The fact that it was on a yacht at sea added to the elegance of the wedding. If I could do it all over again I would not pick any other place but Electra Cruises.

We celebrated our Wedding during the day on 7/31/11 aboard the "Destiny." Lorraine was our coordinator and was very prompt with answers to all of our questions. She could be reached at almost any point in the day and sometimes responded as soon as an email was sent out.

The day of the wedding went off without any hitches. The staff was very professional and attended to all our needs. Our day of the wedding coordinator Karen assisted with the rehearsal and helped to ease any nervousness that we felt.

The food prepared was good with the exception of the cheesy potatoes. They seemed to be a little undercooked but the New wave chicken more than made up for it.

Our officiant Chuck Pieper was well prepared and helped put together an outline of the ceremony. He was very receptive to our input and took care of all the ceremony needs.

DJ Vonn was our DJ for the ceremony and did not disappoint. He incorporated all the songs that we asked and was very flexible. His website assisted us with our song selection.


Some of the drawbacks:
-Dance floor cost $600- This should just be automatically added into the cost of the wedding since it makes no sense to be dancing on carpet.
-Our rehearsal was cancelled 3 days before scheduled due to yacht being unavailable. It wasn't that big of a deal since the rehearsal was done in about 15 minutes on the day of the wedding.
- The temperature inside the boat tends to get a little hot. The occasional breeze was met with applause by most in attendance.

Overall, I was very pleased with Electra cruises and would recommend them to anybody in the future. They would have gotten 5 stars if it weren't for some of the drawbacks.

OUr wedding was beautiful! You can't beat the scenery of the harbor. Our in-office coordinator was Allison. She was quick to reply to my e-mails and very helpful. It was so easy because they have so many things to offer in the package. Our only disappointment was that they have to shut the music off at 10pm. We paid the extra hour until 11pm and we were not told of this fact until halfway through the wedding. I had read about that on some other review and when I asked my coordinator, she said that we may have to turn down the music but it should not be an issue. They said if we wanted to keep the music, we would have to dock. We went with that, and pretty much everyone got off the boat since they thought we were done! But we have had many compliments about the wedding and the food. We're overall very satisfied :)

We had our wedding "reception" (not ceremony) on Electra. Love the boat, food and service was fantastic, and everything turned out as planned. The wedding planning had it's moments, but it worked out in the end. We were a small party, and we elected to go with some of our own vendors instead of using Electra's, so I don't know if that would change the experience. I can only say that the coordinator, serving staff, food, and cake were fantastic because we opted out on the other services. We were very pleased with the outcome. It was such a beautiful day, and all our guests really had a great time and really enjoyed the experience. All the staff at Electra are incredible, such warm and caring people. The only thing I can stress is to stay on top of the coordinating. They're very busy, and you want to make sure things go as planned.

everything was smooth sailing with electra cruises. they are very helpful and supply a good list of vendors so everything is stress free and easy to plan. it is easy to see why they have been in business for so long. the staff is very supportive and help to keep you clam they also make sure everything runs smoothly by making sure all parts of the wedding and reception go according to schedule. i absolutely loved my wedding aboard the destiny it was beautiful and the marrying officiant was spectacular we had Gary her was amazing. my only complaint would be that they did not tell us that boarding and on boarding comes out of out time so my 6 o'clock wedding was actually started at 5:45 and was supposed to end the reception at 10:30 and it ended at 10:15 so you believe your are paying for 4 hours of event time but it is really only 3 1/2 hours. but other than that mix up i had a wonderful time and wouldn't change it at all. this is a beautiful venue and the staff is very nice.

Our wedding day was perfect! The location, the staff, and all the recommended vendors were fabulous! Although we had a small wedding, every person we encountered treated us like we were royalty. Susan was especially helpful, detailed, prompt, and best of all, enthusiastic, in her communication with me for our10 months of planning! We can not tell you how thankful we are for Electra Cruises's dedication to customer service in all the time of planning for our big day.

Karen, our day of coordinator, was extraordinary. Her professionalism in the coordination of the whole wedding was top notch. I appreciate her taking a few moments when I first arrived to go over all the details of the wedding to make sure that everything I imagined would become our fairy tale wedding. All the small details from serving us and our non mobile grandparents, to handling our surprise "wedding crasher" were handled with the utmost professionalism.

As for our vendors, Peter (DJ), Carrie (photos), and La Vonnes (florist) were all fabulous!

I repeatedly got comments about how amazing the music was for the night! I honestly did not expect that much dancing to go on, but boy did it! The tone Peter created with the music was perfect. Upon my request, he even included a special dance for my parents' 30th anniversary.

Carrie was a pleasure to work with! I sent her a two page list of photos I wanted from the night, and she successfully captured all of those shots with a smile on her face! I appreciate her enthusiasm and the passion she has for photography. Her turn around time was only 3 weeks to get the photos back too!

I would highly recommend Electra Cruises and all their vendors to anyone considering!

Excellent venue, food and drinks. I had the best day of my life aboard the biggest yacht they have called Eternity. My only downfall is one that could happen happen at any venue. The policy where you don't get money back for the people who don't show up. I know it's not their fault the people don't show up but if I have more people show up they would expect me to pay for them but I have less people and you still keep all my money. Everyone knows they are going to cook a little extra food anyway so why not refund them their money since you would expect us to pay if we had more people. Other than that Electra made my day the best day a woman could ever ask for. The food is still being talked about amongst my guest even 2 weeks after it all.

We used them for our wedding reception, it was outstanding. They were very good to work with and they did go out of their way to make it perfect. I liked that they give you an on board wedding coordinator so you can relax, she was on top of everything. The only negative was that there was a mis-communication about the tipping and my $500 security deposit went to a tip that I didn't expect or want to do. Also, because I was not aware I tipped them on top of that. I'm over it, the party was great and everyone had a blast.

The yachts at Electra Cruises are so beautiful! There is just something about having your reception on a yacht and enjoying the beautiful view of the Newport Harbor. We had our ceremony in church, so we only used the yacht as our reception venue. I personally didn't want our ceremony there because, 1) We are Catholic and had to get married in church and, 2) 4 hours is not enough time to have both your ceremony and reception. I couldn't have asked for a better reception venue. What I really liked was that Electra Cruises has their own vendors which makes it so easy. A lot of girls still go with outside vendors, but I didn't mind using theirs because they are all great. Trust me, you want to make it easy on yourself when planning for the big day. I practically did it myself and I was stress free! Anyways, the crew/staff was amazing! There were some mishaps because I wasn't given some information until the day of, but it all turned out well thanks to the coordinator that comes with the package. All I can say is that everyone had a great time and many of our guests said that our wedding was one that they will never forget. My husband I feel feel the exact same way. =)

I was on the yacht Electra, and it was gorgeous. I loved Kim, our day of coordinator. I think she should be knighted just because I commented to my husband of 5 minutes that I was either still nervous or really hungry and she brought up an entire appetizer platter for us.
Since when I look through reviews I want to know what problems to look out for, here they are:
We weren't told ahead of time that the 2 weeks before check needed to be a cashier's check until we tried to turn it in.
During the appetizers people were sent upstairs for drinks, which wasn't helpful since we were trying to do pictures and the staff was changing the set up from ceremony to dinner.
All in all, amazing value for what I got. Highly recommend!

Our wedding was amazing! The boat is really pretty and all my guests enjoyed the ceremony and reception. They have a network of vendors and that made it very easy to plan the wedding. Our "off-boat" coordinator was great. She responded quickly to all our questions and really wanted us to have the best wedding. The only reason I didn't give them 5 out 5 for everthing is because they told us that we had 11 extra guests when we actually had no extra guests on board. But they ended up refunding us the money so that worked out ok. So just make sure someone you trust is also checking off the list as the guests come on board.

I don't usually write reviews but since I had a very good time and experience with Electra Cruises yesterday, 1/30/2011, I feel compelled to give them an outstanding review. We became engaged in late October and literally only had about 3 months to make all the preparations including the invitations. Luckily, my wife did 95% of all the work. I was just there to provide my input and feedback. I think i can speak for most couples that your input does exist but it doesn't count LOL. That's ok honey.

My wife had already helped a lot with her twin sister's marriage 2 years ago and so already knew the "ropes"; show's how much I know about planning a wedding. My wifey is more of the type of person to write reviews but since she is busy today getting her hair done then I feel i should step in since I'm just sitting around the house today doing nothing.

We first came into contact with Maureen and she is a very nice, sweet woman. She made sure every question we had was properly addressed and even tried to help save money by telling us to book 10-20 people less than the amount RSVP'ed since you're always going to get people that end up not showing up. And she was right, it actually turned out that 180 people showed up rather than the 201 that RSVP'ed. Luckily, with Maureen's advice we only wasted about 10 people worth of money since we ordered for 190 people.

Maureen was almost like a mother to us. She was not pushy at all about us going with Electra. She was very patient, suggestive, and warm. It almost felt like we knew her for a long time. She likes to give hugs when saying goodbye and even came to hug my wife and I on our big day. Maureen even called us a few times in one day to make sure that we received the modified quote since my work does not allow me to bring cell phones and she didn't know where to find my wifey's phone number. My wife and I are thinking of buying her a small gift when we go on our honeymoon.

The yacht is great!!! We used the Eternity and that ship is huge, inviting, and elegant. The waiters, bartenders, dj, florist, minister, and wedding coordinator were all great. We decided to go with the dj, florist, and minister that Electra provides. You can choose to go with your own, but for convenience and the price, it was not much to ponder on.

We felt that using the minister that Electra provides would add a great ambiance and atmosphere since he is a captain of a ship. So, he was decked out in his captain's uniform and hat which really set the mood and the tone since we ARE getting married on a ship. The florist is a little more expensive than if you go to one in westminster. However, the florist in westminster wanted us to buy more flowers if she was going to give us a good deal. We only ordered 1 big floral arrangement for ceremony, groom boutineer, and bride bouqette for our ceremony and flowers for our wedding cake. That florist amounted to about $500 (including the $200 labor charge). Luckily, my wifey's twin sister knows how to make the corsages, bouqettes, and boutineers so we saved a good amount of money on the groomsmen, best man, relatives, bridesmaid, and maid of honor flowers. We saved money too by buying our own runner and spreading flower petals along the runner ourself and making our own dining centerpieces.

Our wedding coordinator was great. Her name is Victoria. Very nice and accomodating woman. I don't think we had too many requests. I told her we needed a table outside to check-in people, two small tables for our digital photo frames, and was in charge of the rehearsal. She was nice enough to even get a drink for me when i was seated at our sweetheart table. She was very comforting and relaxing reminding us not to stress on our big day and that that is what she is here for.

Dj is great too. He has a huge library of songs to choose from. And, if he doesn't have it he will make sure he can get it. He even made us a CD of all the songs he played during the wedding. The dj helped with announcing the directions to the guests according to the itinerary and logistics since the ship consisted of four floors (dining, nightclub, ceremony, outdoor roof deck)

But, all in all, I have no complaints and regrets of doing it with Electra Cruises. I would recommend to anyone. My wife and I even looked at reviews of competitors in Long Beach and Marina del Rey. The reviews did not seem too appealing especially when you want your happiest day to be the best and happiest.

Electra Cruises was a great venue! We were a bit disappointed in the lack of flexibility for them to accommodate special specific needs of our event, because they were so used to doing it one exact way for everyone. For low budget, they are wonderful! For big budget, the boats can be absolutely superb!

Electra Cruises was my Ceremony and Reception location and if I could do it all over again I would! They made my day run so smoothly and it was a blast! I highly recommenend that for your day of coordinator you request MONA, she was wonderful. Everything ran so smooth because of her. I was concerned due to the reviews that I found after I booked them but I have no clue how they came to their conclusions. The food was great, people kept telling me how wonderful it was. Staff was very friendly to our guests which is very important! Although they have vendors that they recommend you are free to have your own vendors which is what I did! Maureen in the office was great as well. Excellent place to have your wedding!

All the pretty words in all the cards can not convey my joy at our reception aboard Athena. Your captain, staff, crew and vendors were simply wonderful to my daughter and her new husband. Our guests still carry-on so about the fun, the great food and all the magical moments. Every day with this couple is a great gift, this evening with you all was a “Bonus.” Even tho there was a mix-up with the cake, this couple has far greater issues in there life than cake. So I’ve made the best of it and ate up the cake that was there. The bride has ask me to donate our glass bowls to your co., in hopes another bride and groom might like to use them. In closing..I send thanks, a very, very heartfelt thanks.

I can't imagine a better place to have had my wedding!!! We were on the Eternity with about 150 people which was perfect.
Positives: Susan P. is absolutely amazing! She was so wonderful with helping me and answering all my questions for the whole planning process! Kim was my day of planner and she was amazing too! She guided me through everything and it was amazing! The new wave chicken is outstanding and the people that got the spinach apps loved them. I am from AZ so they were very accommodating whenever I was in town and wanted to see the boat or meet to talk about anything.
Negatives: Do NOT spend extra on cocktail and water servers. They are $150 a piece and are only around during dinner which is like 1 hour. Also, they do not bring water to every table like they say they will. The other thing I recommend is to get the stationary appetizers because the tray pass they had maybe 4 trays and half my guests did not get apps and we paid $3 a person for those.
Also, 4 hours is crunched when doing the ceremony and reception so if you are able to do the ceremony somewhere else or pay for extra time on the boat I would do that. I have read that in all the reviews but we didn't have $2000 to spend per half an hour. If you have the money I would say at least an hour. We skipped the bouquet and garter toss and we still only had like maybe an hour of dancing and our ceremony was 15 min long. So, make sure if you want time to dance have your ceremony somewhere else or add more time.
Everything else was amazing!

I would highly recommend Electra Cruises. The only reason I ranked a 2 on responsiveness was for the sales associate that worked with me up until the day of the event. She told me wrong information and was not responsive to emails. My wedding planner (the day of the event) was Karen, who was amazing! She set up my centerpieces, table décor and gift table – all of which looked amazing. I only spoke to her once and she completely captured exactly what I was looking for. She was so attentive and calm, giving me directions and walking me through what to expect. Seriously a perfect night!! Thank you so much Electra Cruises!

We got married on the Eternity Yacht which was beautiful. This place doesn't need much sprucing or decorating because of the spectacular view. The chivari chairs, bar decor and white leather couches are really nice and add an elegance to the ambiance.

My planner through the whole process, Allison, was super responsive and helped me a lot finding the DJ and captain to marry us. They were both great!

What is great about Electra Cruises is that they have preferred vendors who work with them and some of the services can already be added into your venue fee with their base packages. They also have the vendors come to the tasting so you can meet and book with them then, which kills two birds with one stone.

The food we chose, which was the coconut halibut and prime rib was awesome. Everyone at the wedding loved it and we have foodies in our family. The appetizers were also fantastic and everyone gobbled them up.

The only critiques I have is that I would have liked to meet the day of coordinator sooner than the rehearsal, maybe a couple of weeks before to sort out all of the days activities and timing. Also, Electra isn't very flexible with some of their rules. You can't have candles as the center pieces and no confetti or sparkles.

Overall though everyone enjoyed the wedding and it was beautiful. My mom wants to have her birthday on the boat after seeing our wedding.

The venue provided a really good package, both affordable and unique. Please be aware that you will not meet their coordinator until the morning/day of the wedding, which could be a bit hectic. The coordinator was supposed to have our food at the sweetheart table for the bride and groom ready once we arrived for the reception, but for some reason she waited at the back of the buffet line which resulted in us getting our meals late and therefore not having enough time to chat with all of our tables. For the value and their routine wedding schedule, most of it worked out fine (thanks to our wedding party assisting us with getting things done for us so we wouldn't get frustrated).

It is pretty much a one stop shop. They set you up with a multitude of vendors to choose from which is very nice. However, what is included is the bare minimum from the vendors. So be prepared for extra costs. The vendors I chose were very professional and fun to work with! I would use Electra Cruises again.

we booked electra because we thought it was a really great price for all that is included. we were a little misguided by the "included" part because it required a lot of 'upgrades". we booked onto the destiny. she is a great boat. we loved our dj von and our photographer kelly video photo. we didnt like the florists though becasue they were so expensive, so i booked through someone else i had found much cheaper (though i almost wish i had splurged because that went a bit wrong, but thats a different review). when i had booked them though and was finalizing i came to find out that you cant really have outside vendors. luckily the person i had chosen had worked with them and so he met the "requirements". i think mostly it was just the fact that maureen our wedding planner was just so nice and amazing she let it slide. the food was great and the night was beautiful. splurge for the well bar its worth it and not much more. the only other thing that i really have to complain about was the fact that this stupid boat show was going on the same weekend as our wedding. which we didnt find out until like 3 weeks before. this made parking in their tiny garage a little hectic though they do save spots for all the weddings they will be having each day so that is nice. what really sucked was that the boat was moved from its usual location. to where was supposedly just a little further down. well it was like a whole mile further of rough dock. not good for elderly guests. my grandmother actually fell!!! also it was a long way to lug all the stuff we had to bring. other than that it was beautiful and i would do it again. guests at my wedding are actually talking about having their weddings their because they loved it so much

We are very happy with Electra Cruises. We got married on the Destiny boat (a mid-size boat for 100-150 ppl). Flexibility is rated low because you are restricted to their set of vendors for Flowers, Photo, Music, etc. But... this is also a blessing in disguise since you don't have to run around the city and call everyone from yellow pages. But you have to book your favorite vendor quickly as the good ones go fast. We booked our boat 11 months in advance. They provide the food and have many options and it was all good. Once a month they host meet-a-vendor and taste-the-food event that we highly recommend you attend as early as possible. Setting is extremely elegant and boat needs little decorating as Newport Beach provides all the scenery. Responsiveness can be so-so depending on the agent you get, so just be sure to stay on top of everything and stay in touch frequently with them.

First and foremost, our wedding was fabulous. It's 3 months later and guests are stilll talking about what a wonderful affair it was. The price of using Electra Cruises was higher than other venues we were considering, but the view was drop dead gorgeous, the food was great, and the event ran without a hitch. We chose to do the "first look" photos prior to the ceremony which maximized the time everyone had for the reception. Electra recommended this and it worked great to keep things rolling. The staff that helps you plan your event is very professional, however they don't deviate from their set packages. If that's ok with you then you are golden. Otherwise you have to go "a la carte" which is much more expensive. Bottom line is, we are very happy with our outcome and recommend them.

Although the yachts with this company are stunning I wasn't 100% sold on this venue because everything was all inclusive so we took some time to think about it before aking the commitment. We spoke with DeeDee our sales agent and we (DH, MOH, and I) were very detailed in asking if we had to use all of their inclusive vendors. Well our sales agent assured us any vendor could be swaped out. But Electra doesn't view catering as a vendor, and therefore we found out months later after making our frist two deposits, we could not use an outside vendor for catering. I was really rattled by this revelation and initially they offered me my money back if I wanted to cxl. But this was a little under two months before my holiday weekend wedding, so I declined. Their food was not bad it was just not what we planned on for our wedding. After all that was said and done the only other discreptancy was I remembered being told I would have access to several different linen colors, but not told I would have to pay more for colors other than black, white, or ivory. No biggie but it stressed me out a little thinking, what else will surprise me?! Well now to jump to the rehearsal. I met my DOC Karen, and she was fantabulous!!! She really helped ease my worries. And on wedding day she was a jewel, I had non-designated coordinators (family) and she handled it so well, I think! She helped the night flow so well and I hope we didn't drive her too crazy. BTW everyone raved about how great the food was :D (Although I wasn't 100% sold on it, but I am a extraordinarily picky eater). I recommend if you go to this venue see if you can request DeeDee as your sales agent, and Karen as your DOC if they will allow, because even after the bumps in the road I wouldn't have wanted anyone else in that office helping me with my most special day. P.S. DeeDee had to basically spank my hand, and walk me through the side entrance because I was late for my own wedding ): I <3 my venue! My family keeps saying they will all go to the court to get married, because no one will be able to top MY wedding!!! Thanks Electra XOXO

Everyone said that my wedding was the best one they had ever been to. I grew up in Newport so I always knew that I wanted to have a wedding on the ocean. My Day was perfect. Be sure to ask about extra costs for things like linens, elevator or the yacht, etc because you don't want to be surprised a few days before your wedding on the extra costs. The people there are super nice and more than happy to answer your questions. It turned out way better than I ever imagined

I loved getting married on the Crystal through Electra cruises. It was gorgeous and perfect. It felt a little short of course but other than that, it was amazing. We only had a couple problems the day of....They wouldn't let our photographer's assistant on which meant I paid for the extra hour with the photographer, but only got about 20 minutes since he was trying to explain to them to let his assistant on. That was not his fault at all. Because of that I barely got any pictures from before the wedding. They also let guests on while I was getting pictures taken with my bridesmaids, so they got to see me before my big entrance...but I just ran to the room :)
Other than those minor things, I would recommend this place for anyone who is planning a wedding. We got so many compliments on it, how beautiful it was and how it was the best wedding they've been to. Just beware that the costs of the vendors will very easily become more. With most of the vendors, you only get a little bit and then you have to pay more for more pictures or more flowers. Just remember you can do your own things. I decided not to go with the flower vendor. Way too expensive. So I ordered them online and it turned out perfect and they deducted the price of that vendor from our total.
Overall it was a beautiful wedding and I absolutely loved it.

Electra was an AWESOME venue for a wedding. The food was absolutely awesome as well! The night went by so fast but our wedding coordinator (Katy I think was her name) was really great keeping everything on schedule and moving. Everything was set up beautifully. Everyone said that it was a pretty rocking wedding!!!
I have two complaints:
1. I believe that one of the bartenders wasn't too nice with some of my guests. I know that they have to control the alcohol flow with those that are underage, but please act cool about it.
2. My scheduled rehearsal never made it onto their schedule. It's stressful enough meeting the coordinator a mere few days before the wedding, but it's even more stressful that our time wasn't written on their schedule. I understand that there is miscommunication at times, but it sucked waiting at the boat and no one was there. I was lucky and there was another rehearsal taking place at the same time. The coordinator of that rehearsal was able to help me out as well. I believe that a confirmation the week of saying "Oh hey, looks like you didn't schedule a rehearsal" would have triggered that our name wasn't placed on the list.

I also don't know what happened to the items that were left on the boat. We were told we had to get off or else we would be charged for staying on. So we got out ASAP. But I don't know what happened to all my extra centerpieces that weren't taken by guests. I wish I could have salvaged some of them! With all the craziness that was happening and people pulling me in all different directions, it would have been nice to at least do a quick walk through the boat to check for lost items.

Electra cruises - the yacht was of course beautiful. We started at 7pm-11pm.. so it was sunset during our ceremony & it was beautiful. The staffs were very helpful. We did a sit-down dinner & had the black & white pasta. The food, especially the salad, was very good.

Captain - We had captain Pieper as our officiant. He was wonderful. We were very nervous at first, but he calm us down & gave us very good directions, was very pleasant & very professional. I would highly recommend him.

Coordinator- Our coordinator from Electra Cruises was ok. She did help with the coordination & timing of things, but not that much help in general with the setup. She was not very friendly & did not smile. If I could choose again, I think I will just have my own coordinator & not hire their coodinator.

I gave a 0 to responsiveness because I had some major complaints that happened at the wedding with the coordinator and sent an email to the manager Jason and he never even emailed me back! I wanted to bring these to his attention so no one else has this problem and I never heard from him! We spent alot of money for 4 hours and I think I deserved a phone call or email.

Great venue, food and staff. Beautiful boat, but do watch out for it being too hot when the sun shines in and you get the green house effect. open the windows before you start the wedding ceremony.

Bad experience with the vendors they recommend/manage. I reviewed them seperately so I still rate Electra highly for the services directly provided.

C9 photography cancelled with little to no notice.
Teri and Bob messed up on wireless mics during the vows and also cut our first dance song short.

We got married in the largest yacht named Eternity, and she is beautiful. I just didn't find it as flexible as I would like it to be ie menu, drinks menu. There is a no gift on board policy! It was difficult to manage. They are extremely strict with the amount of time you get on the yacht and limiting amount of wedding party and immediate family on the yacht prior to boarding. The food was so so and they want to charge us for every little thing. So what seems manageable originally when we first signed the contract became kind of ridiculous. The customer went sort of downhill after we signed the contract. What really saves it is the wonderful crew/ vendors they have on board ie the day of coordinator (Kim who saves the day), the DJ, and marrying captian. The office/business people are crappy.

Our wedding was gorgeous and we couldn't be happier. All of our guests were so amazed by the uniqueness and beauty of our wedding.

However, we weren't given all info up front and most of the pitfalls of Electra, I found out through a friend of a friend who had her wedding through them. We were not informed that gifts would not be permitted on board, nor that we could opt not to use their vendors. Electra can be very flexible, they just don't tell you that.

Prior to booking vendors other than those on their vendor list, make sure your potential vendor contacts Electra to confirm that they meet the requirements: liability policy and worker's comp. Electra wouldn't let my florist work with them because she didn't have worker's comp (family business so it was not legally required).

The day of coordinator was amazing and she helped through every step of the way. Someone even spilled beer on my dress and she got it all out in just a few minutes and finding me very upset. She is there to help you and anything you need she will make sure is done.

My best recommendation is to get request 6 hours rather than 4 hours because 4 was just too short. Our officiant rushed through the ceremony because of it. He spoke so fast that our two page ceremony with the candle lighting only lasted approx. 10 minutes!!

Good luck!

Our wedding was gorgeous and we couldn't be happier. All of our guests were so amazed by the uniqueness and beauty of our wedding.

However, we weren't given all info up front and most of the pitfalls of Electra, I found out through a friend of a friend who had her wedding through them. We were not informed that gifts would not be permitted on board, nor that we could opt not to use their vendors. Electra can be very flexible, they just don't tell you that.

My hubs & I were married aboard the Eternity in Sept 2012.

I wanted a uniquely beautiful wedding venue that involved the ocean but was still formal, fairly affordable w/o skimping on experience and fully equipped for a great party. We accomplished it all with Electra Cruises.

What I LOVED:

My Consultant Allison.
She is a doll and was readily available via email/phone and didn't mind my many random visits to the yacht.

The yacht Eternity.
It is the biggest and newest of the fleet and oozes sophistication and class. It is the most expensive, but is also the only yacht in the fleet that actually comes with a dance floor and has 4 full levels that can accommodate 300+ people.

DJ (Roy Mendoza).
He is the coolest, most confident DJ with the latest equipment, songs and the ONLY DJ in the Electra roster that offers UP LIGHTS!

The food.
We struggled a lot with what to serve to our guests in order to accommodate all palettes/stomach sizes and we wanted to make sure to soak up the open bar so we didn't have guests falling overboard so we went with the New Wave Chicken, Prime Rib, Garlic mashed potatoes, steamed veggies, rolls and musclen salad. Everyone could not stop RAVING about the chicken and mash!

DIDN'T LOVE:

-The way Electra Cruises books weddings.
I know they have to run a business but it all can feel a little "mass production" at times. There are 5 yachts in the fleet and two sailing time slots every day (12PM-4PM or 6PM-10PM) for every yacht.

-You/your vendors are only allowed onboard 1.5 hours before you set sail.
AKA ONE HOUR before you've told your guests to arrive. Hectic to set up, get ready, photos, etc!

-Your day-of coordinator is DIFFERENT than your planning coordinator.
I had Allison for a FULL YEAR - then at the rehearsal, I meet a pushy little European lady who tells me she's in charge. :[

-The dance floor gets REALLY HOT.
Keep the doors closed for noise but turn the AC up for the heat plz!

Good overall.

First off let me say our wedding was beautiful and everyone had a great time on the boat. The time from after the booking to the actual wedding was a bit of a struggle. First our coordinator left the company and never bothered to call us to tell us that we would have a new one. It was about of week of not getting our calls returned that a new coordinator contacted us and told us she would be taking over. There was never any explanation to this, but as I've read other reviews it has happened before. Then, after we had signed our contract, they raised the prices!!! I thought the whole idea of the contract was to solidify a price for your wedding, but apparently they don't follow those rules. Also, $600 for a portable dance floor seems a bit excessive to me.

Make sure you bring your own table numbers because they don't have them, even though we were told that they do. Renee was our coordinator for the event date and she was very quick on her feet. She was able to find some paper and make a few up real quick, and for that I applaud her ingenuity. DJ Von was amazing, as was our photographer Jerome Kelly. We would definitely recommend them to anyone.

If we had to do it all over again, we would still choose Electra, only be more wary of their random cost increases. The wedding turned out beautifully even though there were some hicups here and there, but that is to be expected.

All in all the wedding turned out amazing but their were definitely bumps down the road. There were a lot of things that i was not allowed to do (like have a dj that we wanted, we had to use their whack dj). The food was great and we had a great time. One of my biggest complaints was that i hired my amazing and organized wedding planner and they wouldn't let her do anything...she couldn't even come upon the yacht!

The service in the beginning of our wedding planning was a little rocky as we were moved from one representative to another and our new representative was hard to get ahold of and didn't return phone calls. As we got closer to our wedding date we were taken care of. Renee, who was our wedding day coordinator, was AMAZING! She made sure everything went smooth and everything was perfect.

I would not recommend their DJ - Bobby Mustol as he and his crew were horrible! They didn't have any of the music we requested. We wanted country music and he only played 1 country song!! Instead of mixing the music and fading into the next song they stopped the song and there was no music for 10 seconds while they found the next song to play. It was very disappointing! We all had to wait on the dance floor as they downloaded the wedding party song because they were so unprepared. Especially when I sent them all of our request's weeks prior to our event date. Do not book with them, they are over priced and don't know what they are doing!!!!

Electra does offer other DJ's, just make sure you talk to your coordinator and don't use Bobby Mustol & his wife!!

Everything went well until, the day of the wedding. We delt with one person the whole time we were planning the wedding. Then the day of we get someone that has no idea what is going on. We had no idea if all the guest were on the boat, due to not having the guest list that I sent them. People were getting on the boat before boarding time and walking down to were the bride was. Then I had had the party favors in a nice basket all decorated nice, and the person placed all the party favors on the tables we s the people were getting off the boat they had no little gift. I was not happy with the switching of the workers but over all the wedding was good.

My Husband and I had a great time on the day of our wedding and were able to enjoy it. But..... prior to the wedding, there were many things that were so unprofessional of the venue. Everything was going great with planning and we were so excited, we booked the venue and had everything signed - the next day they called to inform us that the Newport Beach Yacht Parade would be taking place on the same day as our wedding! Ofcourse they didn't share that with us prior to signing on the dotted line (because they didn't want to miss out on making money on a date that no one else would want)! We already signed and paid for everything, so we couldn't do anything about it. On the day of, the boat was moved miles away to a different location on the dock. Initially the Electra Contact informed us that we would be able to have all our guests board the boat on the dock where they normally have it parked (which is very close) - instead our guests had to walk at least an extra mile down a narrow and rocky dock (very unsafe for our elderly guests and children). Thank God there were no falls into the water!

Other than the misinformation and them tricking us into booking a date that no one in their right mind would want, we had a great experience once all our guests boarded. It is a great value for your money, my advice for you to be able to fully enjoy your wedding with Electra is to ask every question under the sun before you sign a contract with them. Best of luck!!

We were married on the Electra Yacht, Destiny (boy was it beautiful and all of our guests were in awe)!

Boat was beautiful, Vaugh (DJ), Cinderella Cakes, Barry Barmore (marrying captain), food were all wonderful! The only complaint from our guests….many of women took off their shoes to dance. They were left with a black gooey substance on their feet. Electra said sometimes they paint the dance floor and it could have been paint?!?!

We had some last minute unexpected guests. I called Tabatha who referred me to Heather. Heather said rather than send another bill, they would get a final number at the wedding and we can pay for it afterwards. Imagine my surprise and embarrassment when my sister told me the bill was given to and paid for by my 70 year old FIL during the wedding! I asked Tabatha how this could have happened. She said HE must have asked for it. How could HE ask for it, when he didn’t know there was a bill?!?!?!

The biggest nightmare was the photographer. Sharon Pulcino owner of Creative Vision Photography. She tried to extort money by saying Electra's pkg was for film, not digital and needed more $ if I wanted digital. Our Electra coordinator talked to her and she changed to digital. She then sent the pics and said "digital has an amber cast on facial tones that needs to be corrected. Also I noticed blacks need to be lower in some photos." She wanted another $250 to process them. I contacted Jason, the manager at Electra. He had an attitude like he couldn’t care less and basically told me I got what’s described in the package. After many phone calls, he finally asked Sharon to process them. She sent them back with a blue hue/shadow on all my pictures. Contacted Jason again, he was extremely rude & told me he did everything he could. He actually said “What else do you want me to do?” I said I just want my wedding pictures fixed!

I had my daughter's 15th Birthday on Destiny Electra Cruises. My cooridinator was Lorraine. She failed to make the appropriate notes for the coordinator the day of the event. Which caused a lot of problems. I called to complain and Lorraine became arguementative. I then spoke to the manager Jason who also became arguementative. They were very unprofessional. By reading some of the reviews, Im not the only one who had problems with Lorraine or Jason. By the way don't tell Jason you paid a lot of money for your event because he will just say, "Is it about the money, no one told you to spend all that money." i was very disappointed with the customer service..

STAY AWAY!!!!!!

Do yourself a big favor and just don't bother with this place.

Their boats are nice but their service is terrible. Our special day was a total joke thanks to these clowns, I was constantly running around chasing the wedding coordinators ass because she was stupid and useless, I asked for only a two speicial things, and none of them they could do right.

I paid for an unlimited soda and juice bar yet halfway through the cruise, I am being told by my guests the bar reports being out of soda !!!! WTF!!

The minister hands me my documents after the ceremony.....why? It clearly states on the document HE is supposed to send it registered mail to the office within 10 days not me..... I am leaving for a 3 week honeymoon, what am I supposed to do with it ???

I return back to the boat because my cash reserve bar was due a refund of approx. $600, I had to dispute the charge with my bank in the end because they never gave me the money back. They also promised me a refund for the soda bar and for the wedding coordinator, and none of that showed up.

They will simply lie to your face so you will leave and then they do none of what they promised. If I could do it all again I'd never choose this company.

Please save yourself the trouble and use someone else, these guys are simply horrible, their all smiles and anything you want until they have your cashiers check, oh yeah that's another thing, they only accept cashiers check and if you want to pay with a card they charge a good fee, they do this to discourage you from using your card, this way they have your money and can do what they like, if your not happy who cares because what are you going to do right? I paid for my cash bar tab with my credit card, that's the only reason I got my entitled refund back, beyond that I would of been out that money too

STAY AWAY, Nothing but Liars and 2 Faced charlatans.
