Testimonials

“Wow! What a whirlwind weekend for us! To say that our experience on the Eastern Star was amazing doesn’t even do it justice! From Captain Nick to Billy to the lovely ladies, everyone took care of us like family. The food was incredible and the cake was beautiful! And as my Mom said, the sites were “mesmerizing” and we’ve never seen the City look so vibrant! From start to finish, one of the best nights of our lives and our guests were “wowed” by the experience! I don’t know how we can thank you enough for the time and attention you, Captain Nick and the crew gave us! You took our dreams and made them come true! There will never be enough words but thank you will have to do for now!”

“I wanted to take the time to let you know what a fantastic evening our group had aboard Eastern Star. It was memorable and they were very pleased with the service and special attention they received. The group enjoyed themselves tremendously and want to know when they can plan another event aboard.”

“Laurie, thank you for your special attention to detail and for working with me at the very last minute. I have really enjoyed working with you and will not only recommend the Eastern Star for other events, but will be using you again in the very near future.”

“We had a wonderful time. The boat was beautiful, and the Captain and staff were attentive and extremely helpful.  My mother was completely surprised– it was a memorable birthday to say the least.”

“WOW! We really rocked the boat! What an event! You not only met my expectations, but, completely exceeded them. Every detail was perfect. The food was outstanding and the evening elegant and upscale. Thank you Laurie for all your suggestions, and to Captain Nick and the crew, thank you for a truly special journey. My 50th birthday was a blast!”

“This was the most successful event I have ever thrown. The yacht was lovely. The food was wonderful and beautifully presented. The staff was terrific, polite and timely! We had a cake made at Laurie’s suggestion and it was the best cake we have ever had! Responses from the guests were overwhelmingly wonderful and now my sister-in-law is planning her daughter’s wedding aboard next year. For a party that is truly elegant, you can’t do any better than the Eastern Star! It was the easiest and best event I have ever organized.”

“I just wanted to follow up with you after our Eastern Star dinner cruise a few weeks ago to let you know what a great evening we had. Your staff was extremely friendly and helpful, greeting our customers with a smile and checking in with me often to insure that everything was going well. The evening went off without a hitch and our guests raved about the food and the absolutely stunning views of the Statue of Liberty. This was our second successful year doing this and I am confident that we will be back, in fact, I think our customers will demand it!”

“My husband was floored! I don’t know how I could have pulled off his surprise 50th birthday without you! I was so nervous but you put me right at ease, helping me choose the perfect menu and DJ. The boat is beautiful, your staff amazingly attentive and the food was excellent. Our friends are still calling raving about the whole experience. Thank you, Captain Nick, Laurie and the awesome crew of the Eastern Star for making this a special night we’ll be talking about for years to come!”

“We had the most wonderful engagement party aboard the Eastern Star. The comfort and beauty of the yacht, along with the uniqueness of being on the water, made it one of the most unforgettable experiences of our lives. Many of the guests remarked on what a fabulous time they had. The food was absolutely delicious, especially the seafood (honestly it was better than many upscale restaurants we have been to). The entire evening exceeded our highest expectations. Thanks again to you, Captain Nick and your outstanding crew.”

“Just wanted to drop you a line to say thank you so much for all your assistance in getting our corporate event together. Everything was just great. Our group had a wonderful time. The “crew” was just amazing. From the moment we walked on until we left they catered to our every need. The food was excellent as well. Thank you so much for your attention to detail and for making our event so memorable.”

“I don’t think I have ever received more heart-felt thank you’s from our customers at any other event I’ve ever been involved with. You make the planning almost effortless from my end and I know that I don’t ever have to worry that thing won’t be right because you folks seem to do everything right!”

“I don’t even know where to begin. My 60th Birthday Party was absolutely perfect from the minute we stepped aboard to our last goodbyes at the end of the evening. As I look back at the video my sons took I noticed just how good a time everyone was having. The food was incredible and beautifully presented. Everything was so delicious there wasn’t a single guest that wasn’t up for seconds and third helpings. I guess all the dancing worked up our appetites. Most important was the courteous and friendly crew. They were there making sure our guests were happy and taken care of. It was a true fantasy journey, one that anyone who was there will ever forget!”

“Everyone had an absolutely splendid time on the Eastern Star. The food was delish and your staff was a joy to be with. That’s a lovely boat you have, I could easily live my golden years on that gem.”

“The party was perfect, and I would highly recommend Motor Yacht Eastern Star to any group who wants to host a truly special celebration. Our friends are still talking about the special evening, with beautiful sights, excellent food, and best of all, a warm setting for celebration, conversation and even spontaneous dancing. Thank you for making it so easy and enjoyable to arrange. The service your team offered was gracious and caring, making it possible for us to relax and enjoy our family and friends.”
