Truly so professional, so accommodating, such friendly people to work with. I want to do this all over again!!

Newsome/Ferguson Wedding, June 2018

I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect, intimate wedding. Yacht StarShip really makes all the extra efforts. Everything was flawless and well planned. The food was amazing and the music perfect. What a wonderful way to start a marriage! I am constantly getting compliments on how perfect the wedding was.

Carter/Peraza Wedding, March 2018


My husband and I recently got married aboard the Yacht Starship – Sensation and we could not have imagined a better experience! Our day was simply amazing – we are not able to say enough nice things about the Yacht Starship and their staff. Wendy and Christine were wonderful to work with from the very beginning to the very end! My husband, Nathan and I would not actually see the yacht until rehearsal – our wedding coordinator, Chris did an outstanding job and made wedding planning from multiple states away a breeze! Chris promptly returned all emails and left no questions unanswered.

On the day of our wedding the Yacht was decorated just as we had discussed and far exceeded our expectations – simply beautiful! The staff aboard the ship could not have been more kind or attentive. The food was absolutely delicious! All our guests raved about the experience and had a fantastic night! Nathan and I could go on and on about what a great experience we had but to put it simply, our night was perfection! Thank You Wendy, Chris and all the staff at Yacht Starship for such an incredible night – you all ROCK!

Lyons/Baker 4/20/17

I had the most magical wedding. Truly a dream come true.

Everything was even better than I could have imagined. The staff was amazing the food was delicious, Amanda (coordinator) was the sweetest and nicest person to work with throughout the year of planning and most importantly on my special day. She made sure I didn’t worry about a single thing! I cannot thank Yacht Starship enough for everything they did for me and my husband.

I wish I could plan another wedding. All inclusive, stress and worry free was the way to go. I will be reminiscing about my day for years to come.
Thank you again Yacht Starship for helping me make my dream come true. I found my soul mate and you helped me celebrate our unity in the most magical spectacular way.

I am forever grateful.

Stuart/Sanders Wedding 4/15/17

From the very beginning to saying good-bye ALL the staff was extremely attentive, always available to answer my (sometimes silly) questions, offer support and overall very professional. On wedding day, everything (without exception) was executed exactly as we envisioned plus more. What I did not see while dressing, but my guest told me about is how all the guests instantly felt they were boarding a grand event. The staff set the mood by greeting the guests with trays of wine or beer, ushered them around the boat and made each feel like a VIP. The food was OUTSTANDING! I can attest that our wedding on the Starship exceeded my expectations on every level!


I especially recommend the StarShip team if you are planning a wedding remotely and on budget. My wedding package include all the food catering (except the wedding cake), dinnerware and linens, beverages, premium open bar, the wedding coordinator, the DJ and the service staff. Amanda was my wedding coordinator, so I’m extremely grateful for her dedication and responsiveness when I had questions. I owe her my wedding as I was planning everything remotely from Phoenix, AZ and wasn’t able to make a trip to Florida to taste the food or see the venue in person before the actual wedding day! The DJ was phenomenal, not only playing the music but also making the announcements on our wedding timeline and entertaining our guests throughout the night. My now husband and I were very impressed by the entire service on our wedding day; we highly recommend this great experience.

Cecilia, November 2016

I loved everything about having our wedding on Yacht StarShip. They provided a wedding planner, included so much in the price, and made the wedding planning process a breeze. We had beautiful views on a beautiful yacht! I wouldn’t have changed a thing.

Stacie, August 2016

My wedding was this past Saturday June 25th and it was absolutely amazing. The food was a hit with all my family and friends. The staff was very accommodating and hospitable. I just want to thank everyone for making our day as special as possible. We will definitely be back for future dinner cruises.

Wayne E., June 2016

They accommodated our every need, so much so that we felt nervous that we weren’t as stressed as we thought we should be while planning our wedding. Eric and the staff took care of it all from setting up the boat decorations, executing the flow events perfectly, timing our boarding music and playing our slideshow. We couldn’t be happier with the way our special day turned out, thank you Yacht StarShip. Shout out to Captain Bo for fulfilling our last minute request and taking us to the Skyway Bridge!

Andrew, January 2016

As we planned our wedding on a budget the experience with the Sensation and their staff felt like we spent much more! Everything was beautiful and perfect, even the weather, thank goodness. Amanda our wedding coordinator was such a delight to work with she felt like she was an old friend, she had everything well organized and handled everyone and their needs as well as mine and Jeremy’s. Thanks Amanda!! There was plenty of room for dancing and the garter/bouquet toss. And the yacht worked beautifully for our country themed wedding as I am sure it would for any wedding. The yacht was beautiful and it was our way as the couple to give everyone else a day to enjoy over the waters as well as celebrate and help us build memories of our wedding day! We couldn’t have picked a more wonderful venue. From the bottom of our hearts thank you for helping us plan the most perfect day!

Kathleen & Jeremy, Wedding Ceremony, 2016

Yacht Starship wowed us every step of the way! Our day was fabulous and we didn’t have to be concerned about the specifics Eric took care of it all. The food was impeccable and the onboard service was on point. If you want different and classy Yacht Starship is the way to go. We would do it all over again if we could.
