We had our wedding on the Spirit of Washington. We are very disappointed in our business transaction with Entertainment Cruises. This is truly a unique experience so that is where the one star award comes from, other than that the monetary value we paid compared to the actual experience is far from comparable. We will say that the wedding coordinator assigned to us from Entertainment Cruises, Ms. Johnston was the only other highlight to our experience. We've even submitted their post event survey and have yet to get feedback from them.....

Speaking on quality and professionalism we did not find the sales manager as a trustworthy person. We felt like we were lured into signing a contract and then left on the side road to figure things out on our own. Many false promises were made that were never followed through. Updates and changes made throughout the time leading to the wedding were never communicated to us unless we sought answers and inquired-important aspects such as changes to set up of the buffet, chair upgrades, and menu changes were all found out when we asked about them and asked to have multiple ship visits to help plan for decorations. To top things off, the DJ assigned to our event did not have our requested songs to include our first dance, cake cutting, and last dance song after we submitted a questionnaire over a month before the wedding. We even met with the DJ prior to the wedding and asked multiple times whether he needed help obtaining the songs and were ensured things would be taken care of. On the day of the wedding, a few minutes leading up to the event was the groom notified of the absence of requested music.

The only thing this experience gives is the uniqueness of having a wedding on a boat. Everything else needs a lot more improvement, if you choose this venue beware of the extra costs such as parking and the potential stressors of working with this venue....

We hired the National Elite for a dinner cruise. Having our guests board a private yacht was a great "impact" for the cost. The staff had the boat set up beautifully and had trays of drinks ready to hand to our guests as they boarded. They also worked smoothly with our other vendors, such as a jazz band and coordinator, so there were no logistical or territorial conflicts to worry about. I had been somewhat concerned about the quality of the food since we had a buffet - but it was great and several guests made multiple trips to the buffet line. We paid a bit extra to have Entertainment Cruises bring the boat to DC (rather than depart from MD) but it was worth it since most if our guests were based put of DC and our after party was also in DC.

Despite switching my main point of contact three times throughout the planning process I found everyone to be very professional and trying their best to make my day wonderful. And it was. Everyone still can't stop talking about how wonderful a boat ride at sunset was. And the food was great too - way better than your usual wedding food fare.

We had our reception on the Odyssey and it was fabulous! Everything was absolutely perfect, and every one of my guests stated that it was the best wedding reception that they had ever been to. We all had a great time and were disappointed when we realized that we were docked! The staff was tremendous and went out of their way to make us feel welcome. Every member of the staff congratulated us as we were walking on the boat and again when we were leaving! Our main servers…Anna and Flo (sorry if I misspelled the names) were attentive, professional, polite, and warm! They always made sure that everyone had their desired drinks quickly and I don't think they ever let anyone's glass actually become empty. The food, from the appetizers to the chocolate covered strawberries, was phenomenal and the chef even came out to congratulate us and make sure that we enjoyed the food. We were both pleased and honored that he took the time to do that. All of our guests commented on the quality of the food, and everyone seemed satisfied and happy with their meal. The ship Manager Holly was great. She checked in on us several times to make sure that we had everything that we needed and even brought us a few more candles for the room during the night. The band was great and everyone at the reception spent a lot of time on the dance floor! We had to turn the music off in our room just to get everyone back in for the cake cutting!

I really appreciated everything that the staff did for us on this special night! We were able to have a magical wedding reception with just one week of planning thanks to the fantastic crew! It was definitely a memory that we…and our guests…will treasure for the rest of our lives! I even had guests send us thank you notes for inviting them to the reception!

We had our wedding on the Yacht Elite and we loved it. The boat is clean but out of date. The food was wonderful. The help there was AMAZING! Booking was very easy and we had a wonderful planner assigned to us. The only two bad things were it was a little over priced for what you really get. And if you do book there, pay more to get a different DJ service, the DJ was AWFUL!! Didnt play any songs we wanted and messed up the important ones. Overall would recommend it, but stay away from DJ Rich.
