Loved everything about the Solaris and the entire staff. Everyone made us feel important, requests and questions were answered quickly. Kristi, the wedding coordinator was so flexible and accommodating. She was quick to respond to emails and phone calls, never taking more than a few hours. She had all kinds of ideas and information to make sure our day was exactly what we wanted. Everything I asked for her, she executed just like we had talked about. There were no surprises. Our guests had a wonderful time, food was delicious, bartenders kept everyone's drinks full. Perfect!!!

The Event Coordinators with SOLARIS are some of the most creative individuals on the planet!

They made everything absolutely perfect and amazing. The night went so smoothly thanks to them, and I didn’t have to worry about a thing, I was truly able to just enjoy we wedding. They are very well organized and helpful. In fact I was having so much fun I wanted to prolong the party at last minute, they said no problem, and everyone stayed a little later to worked and were still in high spirits. I would highly recommend them for a wedding reception or any private party.

They made everything absolutely perfect and amazing. The night went so smoothly thanks to them, and I didn’t have to worry about a thing, I was truly able to just enjoy we wedding. They are very well organized and helpful. In fact I was having so much fun I wanted to prolong the party at last minute, they said no problem, and everyone stayed a little later to worked and were still in high spirits. I would highly recommend them for a wedding reception or any private party. Read less

Sunquest was great! What a unique experience for all of our guests. They still havent stopped talking about it. Staff was amazing as well as the food!! We wish we would have extended our reception for longer because we were all having such a wonderful time!

Thank you Kristi, Captain and Staff!
There is nothing comparable to sailing the ocean waters on your Wedding Day!
Solaris and the crew made this happen. It was such a unique experience and it left a wonderful impact on everyone who came to celebrate with us on our special day! I planned everything from North Carolina for this destination wedding and Kristi was constantly responding through email, phone and getting things done. She's got a great positive personality so it makes her easy to talk to during the planning process.
First: The food that was prepared by their Chef from Hawaii was absolutely amazing! I've never had better food at a wedding!
Second: The captain of the ship was very sweet, read us our vows and when we were all drunk on the dance floor, he was a good sport when I pulled him out to dance with me! lol
Third: Kristi! Thanks for everything!
The only things I would change:
I had worked very hard on picking the right music out for everything. I had prepared TWO songs for my walk down the isle.. unfortunately we were not able to practice beforehand and I only received my fast beach song (for bridesmaids and groomsmen) and not my slow isle song.. everyone was flustered and I was unintentionally flustered up the stairs before the slow song came on or the DJ was prepared for my walk.. it was a bit devastating.... its okay though lol because now I just laugh it off .
So with that said, id recommend the live band music instead of the DJ. I felt like even with the effort I put in to pick the music, the Dj didn't get everything I chose, but only used what he had in his collection. It was a let down. BUT PLEASE -- DO NOT let this scare you at all. I know it can be a big deal for most brides, just remember this is a great staff and they will not let this happen again!
I am so pleased with everything else, if I had not been, my rating would be different :)

Kristi and the Crew accomplished everything and I was stress FREE!

I had my wedding onboard the Solaris this past weekend and it was amazing. Everything looked beautiful!! I put together my centerpieces but when I went down the stairs and saw the room I was stunned! I couldn't have imagined it better. The staff did such an amazing job of putting everything together. It was absolutely my dream wedding! Everyone is still talking about how the next family member is going to top it. Everything flowed so nicely thanks to my coordinator Kristi. And the food? What can I say...it was delicious. Much better than any wedding food I have ever had. My mother-in-law even liked the grits! Now that's saying something. Everyone was so impressed and had an amazing time. I wouldn't have wanted it in any other venue. Thank you Sunquest staff for an unforgettable wedding!
