Our yacht wedding on Sundancer was everything we had envisioned...

Dear Camille -- please accept our heartfelt thanks for the stunning job you did for our wedding. We had no idea how to prepare a yacht wedding at the very start. It was you helping us out whenever needed in the past few months and took so much stress off of us. You always gave us response quickly and helped us find the best solutions to the problems during the preparation of the wedding. We couldn't have done it without your help. The wedding was truly magical, amazing and was everything we had envisioned. Many of our guests said that it was one of the most wonderful weddings that they have been to! You made our special day perfect, and we can't thank you enough for all of your hard work and dedication. We have, and will continue to recommend your service to our friends who are interested in having an event on a yacht. Please pass along our thanks to Hidayet, the captain and the waitstaff for their help and fantastic work.

Unforgettable Experience!

My family and I had an incredible time on the Majesty for our Sangeet event in the Spring. The staff and crew were super helpful and took care of us and our guests really nicely. Everything went super smoothly and for many of our guests, they were seeing NYC and statue of the Liberty for the first time. The entire experience was breathtaking and unforgettable. It was an event to remember for a life time. Thank you for making it happen!

Wonderful Cruise

Everything was great – our waiter was very nice and the food was better than everyone expected.  All had a great time.  BTW, I recommended your cruise to 2 guys being taken around by Christina, our mtg planner at the W.  Sounds like they may be booking something with you.  They were most interested in how the food was.  Tx for all your help.

Great Evening

I wanted to pass along my many thanks for such a great evening on the Sundancer on Friday. Our group had a fabulous time and I received many compliments on how beautiful the boat was and how great the service was. Deisy was FABULOUS! We arrived a little late due to a road closure that took us on a detour and she quickly helped me re-plan the timing of the evening and it worked out perfect. She was very attentive and friendly and helped the evening go off without a hitch. I’d like to also praise one of your servers (I forget her name! She was a little shorter and had an accent)  She was very friendly and I received some nice compliments about her.   Lastly, thank YOU for taking the time to show me out to the dock and be available for any last minute questions I had. As a first timer to NJ it made my job much easier to know where I was supposed to be and that I could contact you with any questions. If we return to the area in the coming years I’ll be sure to contact you.

It was a wonderful time and the attendees were very pleased! I just want to personally thank you for all of your hard work that went into pre-planning this event with me. I appreciated your communication, flexibility and attention to detail!   It was nice to meet Dorit—she was easy to work with and overall, the entire staff was friendly and accommodating. Thank you for allowing us an opportunity to work together. I’m glad we met and hope to work with you again in the future. Please stay in touch! xx KPMG

Fabulous corporate event

FINALLY….I’ve got a free minute to drop you a note and tell you what a fabulous time our team had aboard The Sundancer!   Reports from my team were that the food, service and weather were perfect, the flowers were a great touch, Bruce was fabulous and the musician was fun.  We even had people singing and dancing as we made our way back to the dock.  I asked you for a top of the line extravagant cruise and you and your team delivered.  I know that 24 out of 25 passengers will remember that night for the rest of their lives.  The 25th passenger (me!) will remember it for entirely different reasons!   I hope that our paths cross again and wish you continued success with your amazing business!  Thank you for ALL that you did to provide us with a spectacular evening!   Westcor Land Title Insurance

Great Time by Everyone

Thanks very much for everything, Camille, Capt Rob and Lezlee!  We had a great time and so did our guests. Everything went wonderfully. Our biggest problem was trying to move folks along to our time frame, but they were really just enjoying the flow, scenery, food, etc and that was absolutely perfect! We all had a blast. And unlike what we hear many couples say, Alvaro and I ate plenty of the food and cake (which was amazing) and enjoyed a great balance of time with our guests and moments to ourselves. WE really had a blast also, as we always thought we should. Crew was sweet and attentive, food was terrific, scenery, cruise, fireworks, it all was everything we hoped.  Picture perfect! Thanks very much to you all!!! All our best!!  Hugs! Ken and Alvaro

Dear Camille, Just wanted to let you know that the entire event on Destiny from start to finish was more than we could have expected. Our guests were thrilled by the views, our seating was just perfect, Susan and her assistant Daisy were so attentive to us. They even managed to accommodate some eager guests who showed early.

Wedding of the Century

I could not more wholeheartedly recommend Smooth Sailing Celebrations! Camille is an absolute joy to work with and 100% the reason why I was an un-stressed bride. She beautifully took care of all my incessant detail requests, answered my millions of questions, and always made me feel like her most important client. Our wedding day being perfect mattered as much to her as it did to us! Both my husband and I, and all our guests were blown away and truly had the most magical day. (“The wedding of the century” I was told.) Camille was my wedding angel, and we will always have her to thank for the best day of our lives.

I haven't booked yet but I am SO IMPRESSED with Camille. Her professionalism and knowledge oozes from her. I could sincerely not believe how quickly she responded to each email...even at 3:30am!

Highly Recommend Smooth Sailing

Camille was wonderful to work with when booking a yacht for our wedding. She took us to see many options and answered our many, many questions. All the vendors she recommended were great as well. We booked a yacht a year before our wedding and she checked in every so often to make sure everything was going well. Overall, we would highly recommend Camille and Smooth Sailing!

Wonderful Memories

We had a party for our son on the Festiva and could not have had a better experience. We were late in the planning but Camille made sure it all came together. She spelled everything out clearly in the contract and there were no surprises on the day. The food and service were actually better than we had expected and between Camille and the staff on the Festiva answers to questions we did not know we had were handled. We were on a definite budget and would have been happy with a Costco-style sheet cake but Smooth Sailing Celebrations got a great cake with cannoli filling. There were so many pleasant surprises but mostly I'm grateful that I was able to just enjoy the event and our guests rather than worrying about details once the big day came. Our event happened during a huge storm. We weren't even sure we'd be able to leave the dock but we sailed even enjoyed the sites along the way and guests commented that it was a great time despite the near-hurricane.

Dream Wedding

No words can express how thankful we are to Camille at Smooth Sailing Celebrations for all her help in making our dream wedding a reality!!! From booking appointments to view the yachts, countless emails regarding all the details of our reception, and her checking in on us just to make sure we were doing well through the entire process, we felt so taken care of and at ease. She was so receptive and responsive in all of our communications. We highly recommend working with Camille if you're thinking of having an event on one of the many beautiful yachts!! Thank you so much again for everything!!!

Perfection

We had real problems deciding what we wanted to do for our wedding reception for a smaller party. Calling Camille turned out to be the best thing we ever have done. She helped us take care of everything, from finding the perfect boat through nearly every other aspect of planning. She is just amazing-the type of person who not only is on top of everything but who even checks in when nothing's going on just to make sure you're comfortable. I would have a very hard time coming up with a better experience that I've had with any vendor. The end result was nothing short of perfect-my wife and I had a fantastic time at our wedding and our guests couldn't stop raving about what an inspired choice it was to have the reception on a boat. Seeing our pictures has been a reminder of how great everything was,from the boat to the food which was far superior to what is served at upscale wedding halls. I can't recommend SSC highly enough to anyone looking for an enjoyable & stress free wedding.

Perfect

We were so fortunate to have been referred to Camille at Smooth Sailing to help us find a yacht venue for our wedding! We had been looking at standard (land-based) venues before we decided to consider a yacht. The morning of our scheduled viewing with another vendor, we luckily met a current client of Camille's who raved about her services, how helpful she was and her sincere kindness. We contacted her immediately after our other viewing, explained what we had seen and were looking for, and she immediately showed us the Aqua Azul. It was perfect! Throughout our planning, Camille was attentive to the schedule and our needs. She was extremely responsive to us and coordinated the event to make it all work so smoothly. We are grateful to Camille, Smooth Sailing and the Aqua Azul for helping make us beautiful memories. I would absolutely recommend Smooth Sailing and look forward to working with them to host another event on a yacht in the future. Thank you - Love Mallory & Ed

Planning with a Heart

Smooth Sailing Celebrations, Todd and I just just want to say that we are so grateful we met you, Camille. You took the time to show us not only have the best day of our lives, but definitely the most unique! You truly listened to what we had in mind for that day. You truly cared and kept tabs on us; whether it was drawing up our boat contract, lecturing us about getting a photographer on time, arranging for the food tasting on the boat, as well as referring us to a florist and other services. It honestly made the wedding planning process that much easier, knowing you were with us along the way. Camille, you did such an amazing job, because you have a heart, and it shows. Your services are not afraid to take that extra step, and should not go unrecognized. Again, thank you for not only showing us the Royal Princess, but for your help all along the way. You deserve all the success your business receives in the future. We are forever in your debt. :)

Dream Wedding

Camille and the team at Smooth Sailing Celebrations were TREMENDOUS! My husband and I often commented how it felt like we were dealing with an old friend. Camille could not have been more genuine and VERY honest about each and every venue. She gave us the pros and the cons and was ALWAYS responsive. In fact, we are seriously thinking of circling back in 5 years for assistance with an anniversary party. A heartfelt thanks to Camille for her dedication and work. It was truly a dream wedding!

With Less Than 25 Days to Plan

Our wedding party was filled with joy, cheer, laughter, spontaneity, few rules and unstructured fun for our guests. Everyone loved it. Many guests told me, "Time went by so fast! This is the best wedding party I have ever been to!" We had no idea it would turn out like this. Camille, you advised us well. Thank goodness you did push for extra time! Thank you Camille, for finding us the perfect boat in less than 25 days. How you helped us, was heroic. Even when you were sick, you found a way to make sure we were taken care of. We couldn't have asked for anything better of our experience. Bumps happen but we all rebounded together. It was great. After-all, we came to you with our own bump of our original double-booked venue. Again, thank you! Kudos to Smooth Sailing for making every bump a smooth ride!

3 Month Wedding Planning

Smooth Sailing Celebrations was truly instrumental in making the planning of our wedding in only 3 MONTHS possible. She was extremely thorough, efficient and friendly...an absolute pleasure to work with. Her expertise and professionalism proved to be invaluable as she provided guidance and assistance throughout every facet of our planning. She also provided great advice and references regarding other vendors for the event, making it that much easier for us as we finalized all of the "little" details. My husband and I agree we would not change a single aspect of our wedding..from start to finish. Two months later, we were still receiving compliments from our guests...some moved to tears when they talk about how much they enjoyed the wedding!! That says a lot for your planning, venue and vendors! You can feel 100% confident when deciding to work with Camille and Smooth Sailing Celebrations. Best of luck!

Highly Recommend Smooth Sailing

I contacted Camille after attempting to navigate the world of yacht booking myself (which was impossible). She was not only super responsive, but really listened to what we wanted and helped us to make an informed decision while not wasting our time looking at a million yachts. Camille is so invested in making sure each of her clients has a perfect day. I would recommend her in a heartbeat for anyone looking to have a yacht wedding!

Couldn't Have Done It Without Smooth Sailing

Camille was a very pleasant and efficient person to deal with. She scheduled appointments for us to look at the various boats in a timely manner and took the time to counsel us as we tried to choose among the three different vessels. Also, when it came time to decorating and handling all those other logistics that made our heads want to explode, Camille went out of her way to meet us at Chelsea Piers to help us think it through and she made some great suggestions. And when we had a last-minute decorating request a week before our wedding, Camille helped us trouble-shoot and made the necessary arrangements with the crew. Her professionalism and experience were invaluable to us, and gave us the confidence and reassurance we needed to plan a wedding ceremony and reception on a boat! I should also mention that my wife and I are a mixed-race, same-sex couple, and that was a non-issue. We felt Camille, and the crew of the boat we chose were very welcoming and open and happy for us. :)

Big Fat Indian Wedding

We celebrated a pre wedding function of a 'Big Fat Indian wedding" on board 'Majesty" with more than 400 people. It is a big beautiful boat with three stories and the best part is that all the floors have a balcony that looks over to the main area on the first floor. So, even if your guests are on the top floor, they do not miss any of the fun happening on the first floor. Additionally all floors have dance floors and bars. The sail route was picturesque as the boat went very close to the Statue of Liberty and people could take photos. Camille was very professional and helpful and always got back to us promptly if we needed to ask any questions. The food was delicious and menu selection vast. Our guests had an excellent time on board the ship. Everything was perfect. It was the unique experience that Camille described to us and I would definitely recommend a party on a boat!
