    "A Great Evening on the Sundancer"

    ★★★★★
    5 5 1
    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 perfectly. 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 we had a nice conversation about the group and I received some nice compliments about her. Lastly, I’d like to 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.   Thank you again for everything. Best, LEGUS

    Just a quick note to let you know we were flooded with compliments from the client we recently sent you. Other than she being a bit sea sick they LOVED what you provided for them. Statue, history, music, food, service, flowers, you name it! Thank you always for treating my clients like VIPS! You are the best!

    A Top-of-the-Line Extravagant Cruise

    ★★★★★

    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, and 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

    Absolutely Perfect!

    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! 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, 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!

I appreciated your communication, flexibility, and attention to detail! It was nice to meet Dorit. She was easy to work with and 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!

    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. 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. We're very blessed to have had you be a part of making such a memorable event possible. Many thanks and good wishes, Cristina & Joseph

    The Most Magical Day

    ★★★★★

    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.

    Amazing Staff

    Hello Camille; Now that things have gotten back to normal, Licely and I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for the outstanding job you and your staff did on our wedding day. Thank you for being flexible with us throughout the entire planning process. We were fortunate to have you. Thank you for continually working with us and helping us create personalized touches, an amazing day, and truly unforgettable memories. Also, we would like to recognize the staff of the Manhattan Elite Yacht, in particular the monumental job performed by Captain Jim, Danny the Maitre D' and Alberto our bartender. They did an amazing job...KUDOS. Thank you, thank you for making our wedding a success. It was a magical night! With love...

    I have not 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 3:30 am! 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.

    Extremely Responsive

    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 someone who was working with Camille and who raved about her services, how helpful she was, and her sincere kindness. We contacted her immediately after our other viewing, explained what we 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!

    Wonderful to Work With

    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!

    It was a spectacular evening. The staff was not only professional, and attentive, but charming as well. They did everything that we expected and took care of every need.

    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 our communications. We highly recommend working with Camille if you are thinking of having an event on one of the many beautiful yachts!! Thank you so much again for everything!!!

    The wedding was wonderful!!! Everything on the boat was great. People raved about the food and the flowers. We were very happy with our photographer. Thank you so much for all your recommendations and guidance in planning. The Royal Princess was certainly the right choice for us.

    Wedding of the Century!

    Everyone prays that all the details involved in planning a wedding will fall into place and that their event is perfect. Well, ours was Truly The Wedding of The Century! We wouldn't have changed a thing! And Camille with Smooth Sailing Celebrations was an integral part of that equation! She set the whole ball in motion! All the details where handled seamlessly. The catering, the cake, and all recommended vendors were of the highest quality! The Lexington and her staff were amazing and so attentive! Our guests had a Grand Time! And even more amazing is that we did not set foot on the boat until the day before our event. All of it was planned by phone and email. Camille was extremely available even on weekends to respond to questions and concerns. Absolute Perfection.

    Amazing Service

    Todd and I cannot thank you enough for all your help. We are so grateful we stumbled onto your website and met you, Camille. You took the time to show us the possibility for Todd and I to not only have the best day of our lives, but definitely the most unique! It was the best wedding I have ever been to (of course my opinion is a wee bit biased). I was recommending "Smooth Sailing Celebrations" to any wedding guest who asked about finding this gorgeous boat. I began describing in detail how you took us for a tour around several boats, including the Royal Princess (our final choice). You truly listened and catered to what we had in mind for that day. The services of Smooth Sailing Celebrations did not stop with the tours! 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 vending services. It honestly made the wedding planning process 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. You take that extra step, and that 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 has to offer in the future. We are forever on your debt. :)

    Creative and Stress-Free

    We had real problems deciding what we wanted to do for our wedding reception. We had booked a large hall, then decided to do a much smaller reception and cancelled it, and were stumped in finding a good venue for a smaller party. Just three months (!) out, my (now) wife thought that perhaps a boat would be a good idea. I immediately thought of Camille Cerria at Smooth Sailing Celebrations, who I had known through various local organizations over the years. Calling her turned out to be the best thing we could have done. She helped us take care of everything, from finding the perfect boat through nearly every other aspect of planning. Camille is just amazing. She is the type of person who not only is on top of absolutely everything (so you do not have to worry about a thing), but who even checks in when nothing is going on. I would have a very hard time coming up with a better experience with any vendor, wedding-related or not. The end result was nothing short of perfect. My wife and I had a fantastic time at our wedding and our guests could not stop raving about what an inspired choice it was to have the reception on a boat. Now, going through all our pictures reminds us how great everything was, from the boat itself to the food, which everyone agreed was far superior to what often is served at upscale wedding halls. I cannot recommend Smooth Sailing Celebrations highly enough to anyone looking for a super-enjoyable, creative, and stress-free wedding. Cheers!

    Kudos to Smooth Sailing!

    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. Despite the boat delay due to a medical emergency, Michelle and her team rebounded well and came through to support us with a great night. We tipped her because she made it happen. Camille, you advised us well and got into the loop of the conversation with Frank, the boat owner, when we needed you to push for us. Thank goodness you did push for extra time! Frank, the boat owner, was great to give us the visual of what the best boat parties are like: ones that do not look like wedding hall parties! We enjoyed his enthusiasm for sharing his boat with a group like ours. Again, thank you Camille, for finding this 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 could not have asked for anything better. 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!

    Wonderful Service

    We had a party for our son on the Festiva and could not have had a better experience. First, we were late in the planning stage, getting it together only five months prior to the event, and 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. For example, we had goody bags for the guests, and while we were enjoying our guests, staff assembled and arranged items by the door and handed them out at the end of party. We were on a definite budget and would have been happy with a Costco-style sheet cake, but Smooth Sailing Celebrations somehow got a great cake with cannoli filling, and the staff packed the remainder for our guests. There were so many pleasant surprises, but mostly I am grateful that I was able to enjoy the event and our guests, rather than worrying about details once the big day came. Our event happened to be on 6/27/15 during a huge storm. We weren't even sure we would be able to leave the dock and we had about 40 of our 75 guests in from far away, but we sailed, even enjoyed the sites along the way and guests commented that it was a great time despite the weather. Thank you for our wonderful memories.
