It was a perfect wedding! All contacts were prompt with replying back to me, there was lots of help, and flexible with what I wanted. The only downside was the time...4 hours for boarding, ceremony, and reception was not enough for us -- I didnt get more than 2 bites of the delicious food and cake, and we only got about 25 minutes to dance.

My Husband and I were very pleased with our venue on the Yacht StarShip. The professionalism and quality were on point with the entire crew. We were able to have more guest on the yacht than at a hotel in the area.

Overall, the experience was far greater than any hotel.

Thank you Wendy and Eric!!

We absolutely loved our wedding!!! Everything was perfect!! Eric and Rachel were fabulous and made everything so simple. We pretty much showed up and they did everything else. The rehearsal was a breeze and the ceremony was absolutely beautiful, we've had so many complements on how beautiful and unique it was!! The reception was beautiful and the food was fantastic! The servers were very professional and helpful, all our guests had an amazing time. Our only complaint was it wasn't long enough!! Lol!! No one was ready to leave!! :)

I had a destination wedding, and I wanted to have an elegant but stress free wedding. The Yacht Starship included the Ceremony and decorations, food, beverages and DJ. They also provided a list of reasonable and good venders for whatever wasn’t included in their packages. Eric, their events planner made sure that everything ran smoothly. On the day of my wedding, I didn’t have to think about anything except for enjoying myself. The food was wonderful and it was defiantly original. The best thing of all is I had an elegant wedding, that was fun, original and LOW STRESS!!!!!

We had to boat moved to John’s Pass so that we could have a boat wedding as well as our guest could be walking distance from the venue and the beach. Though, it was expensive to move the boat, it was worth it. The intracoastal views were precious. I checked out other boats wedding venues in the area and they were not high quality. Even though I had to pay more to move the boat, I still would not recommend the other venders. They didn’t seem like they would be neither reliable nor helpful during the wedding planning process.

The only complaint that I have was the music. My now husband is from Spain. They do not dance Salsa in Spain. He had a list of music that he wanted played at the wedding. At the beginning they were not playing songs from our list, and a lot of it was Salsa. Finally Toni had to instruct the DJ to play the songs from his list. Though, it was a minor thing, and to be honest the guest loved the music that the DJ was playing. Probably better than our music. Though, if music is important to you I recommend clarifying that with Eric and the DJ.

All and all, I can truly say that my wedding was the best wedding I have ever been to. If I had it to all over again, I would definably do it again with Yacht Starship.

Eric @ Yacht Starship was VERY helpful through my wedding planning process. Eric's attitude was calm and refreshing which helped me feel relaxed and confident about the planning and finishing touches for my wedding. He kept me informed every step of the way and made coordinating the florest, photographer and cake arrival completly painless! The price was a little high but, the food and service they provided helped make my wedding day amazing for myself and my guests! The Captain sailed us out a little ways and performed the ceremony at sunset. I couldn't have asked for a more beautiful, memorable experience!

The entire experience we received from the Yacht Starship was 5 Star all the way from beginning to end. Our friends and family are still raving that it was the best wedding they had ever been too. Eric was our wedding planner and he was phenomenal! If I would have changed anything I would say in hind sight to get married somewhere else or on the dry dock and save all your reception time for the boat. The food was incredible...I can say it was the best salmon that I have ever had in my life. You must check them out if you are getting married.

I loved everything about my wedding on the Yacht StarShip! The ceremony was beautiful, and on the top deck of the boat. The wedding coordinator and staff were superb and attentive to every detail. I love their all-inclusive package - the food, linens, and DJ were all wonderful. There was not one thing I would have done differently. Everyone had such a wonderful time dancing, eating, and looking at the beautiful scenery. Many of my guests plan to go back on a regular dinner cruise since they enjoyed it so much.

We had our wedding on the Yacht Starship and it was amazing! The staff was very helpful, friendly and I must say they went above and beyond to accommodate us. Working with Eric was great as well as he assisted and was always available. We docked from Tampa but they allowed us to get on in St Pete due to a morning ceremony they had in the area so we would have plenty of time to decorate and have everything ready before the guests boarded. The food was very good, and since our wedding we have cruised just for the dinner. The DJ played great music all night long and all our guest raved on and on about our Special Day! I highly recommend to any future Brides and Thanks again to the staff!

We had a small ceremony on the ship prior to a regularly scheduled lunch cruise. It was beautiful, and many other people on the ship offered to take photos if they caught us alone out on the water or near dock. It was very intimate. If we had more time, I would have definately booked the entire ship for a larger wedding.

The wedding pictures we got back look fake the scenery was so stunning. Our friends and family all had a blast and it was very easy to have the dinner, ceremony, party reception all in one spot. TOP NOTCH.....
