    Comments: 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! She obviously loves what she does and it whole-heartedly shows! Also, thanks to Captain Rob for a gift of champagne! We really felt cared for.

Nothing but rave reviews from our family and friends! Your suggestions for the food and order of events were spot on. We didn\'t worry about a single thing once on board.

    Comments: 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!

    Comments: Camille, Wow! WHAT A GREAT TIME! I can’t thank you enough for taking me on the tour of the Cornucopia Destiny – it was the perfect fit for my client and his team! The staff, the boat, the food, the scenery… all so lovely! It truly was a world-class event and I received a ton of praise and positive feedback from everyone aboard the boat. They just had a blast! And the weather couldn’t have been more perfect – they were on the top level the WHOLE time! Camille, it’s been such a pleasure working with you and I truly appreciate your patience while working with me and my company. I enjoyed working “old school” with you based on a relationship of trust. I am so glad we were referred to you, we certainly wouldn’t have received such a high level of service from another cruise line. Captain Ray and Maitre'd Susan were a joy to work with! Thank you again! The night couldn’t have been more perfect!

    Comments: I had my wedding reception at the Cornucopia Destiny and everything came out wonderfully as planned. They even allowed guests to board early due to rain. Camille at smooth sailing was extremely helpful and made planning much easier than expected. She was quick with responses and answered all questions or requests I had. The staff on the boat was also very accommodating on the wedding day. I was very pleased with the day and wouldn't change a thing!

    Comments: Hi Camille, I just want to express a sincere thank you for all your efforts to make our event Friday night a success. Everything went off without any problems, Solia was a wonderful maitre'd, the food was excellent, and the wait staff was terrific on the Destiny yacht. The skyline as we sailed around Manhattan was breathtaking, and it was a beautiful, clear night. How blessed we are to have access to those views! Again, many thanks for everything!

  • Grateful Mitzvah Mom

    Would recommend: Yes     Has booked this listing: Yes

    Comments: Last night was amazing. The weather could have been better, but everything was great nonetheless. Your staff, food, boat, everything! I had originally thought we’d be a bit segregated between the two floors, and the 13 year olds wanted nothing to do with the rest of us, but even the 90 somethings managed the stairs and everyone hung out together. My brother-in-law from Ohio said it was not only the most fun bar mitzvah he had ever been to, but it was great that everyone could talk and hear each other without loud music, screaming kids and MCs overshadowing everything. Marielle took charge, offered mirrors under our small centerpieces, every last touch. Carol and Marie organized the tee shirts and bags or it would have been an unexpected hassle for me while saying good-bye to everyone. Many of our guests had never met each other, and while we forgot to check out some of the key sites, everyone connected over the rainbow Freedom Tower and, of course, Statue of Liberty! We had friends there last night with two kids — one 16yo and another who is 10 and they have not yet started planning his bar mitzvah. The mom thought this was a great idea, never even knew this could be an option, and had to take out a second mortgage for her daughter’s bat mitzvah a few years ago. So you will be hearing from her! So the next time we have an event on the Festiva, a little less rain please! Thank you so much for all your help and guidance - couldn't have done it without you! :)

    Comments: 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!!!
