  • Dorit and her team were very professional and provided top notch service. The all- inclusive package made lives easy for us and it’s well worth the price tag. Our guests loved the whole experience and we couldn’t be happier with our decision to have our reception on the Aqua Azul.

    Hi Ivy, sincere thanks for taking the time to write the review. It was really great hosting your wedding reception and planning the event all along. We especially enjoyed the tea ceremony and the gorgeous outfits. Much love and happiness to the two of you! Dorit & the Aqua Azul team, NYC.

  • My wedding was flawless and I would recommend this without any reservation. Food: Awesome, they have a lot of options and everything just great! (I got to eat at my own wedding too which was nice) Decor: The boat is decorated beautifully and elegantly. People thought I spent so much money on this venue. But honestly, is was comparable to other venues where you basically just get a nice big room. Saving Money: I think having my wedding here actually saved me money because I didnt have to buy any decorations. Also photobooth? I didnt think it was necessary on a boat wedding when you have the NYC skyline, Statue of Liberty, and Brooklyn Bridge as the backdrop. Staff: The staff made my wedding. I cannot begin to tell you how professional, kind, polite, and friendly the staff was. We had 2 people in wheelchairs (there is an elevator on the boat) and they were raving about how helpful the staff was to get them where they needed to be without missing anything. I would do my wedding a ... Read more

  • We had our wedding reception in July 2019 on the Aqua Azul. Dorit and her team were excellent at coordinating and were flexible to meet our requests. Our guests commented on how attentive and kind the staff were. Thank you so much to the Aqua Azul for helping us create memories that will last a lifetime.

  • Dorit and her staff were amazing. We chartered the Aqua Azul for a Rehearsal dinner of 152 people. Dorit’s service to detail made our planning process painless. If you are looking for full service delivered with excellence on food and service with amazing backdrop of the City and the Statue of Liberty, then this is your venue your guest will talk about for months! I cannot say enough wonderful things about Dorit/staff and the Aqua Azul!

  • We chartered the Aqua Azul for our wedding in September 2017. And it was spectacular! From the spacious and well-equipped yacht, to the delicious food and the professional and attentive staff - nothing was left to chance. The service provided by Dorit and team made the entire process seamless and turnkey, which was echoed by all our parties (photographer, florist, DJ). They KNOW how to run a wedding, thinking of details that would never occurred to us. The pride of ownership was apparent from the first conversation and made all the difference. Thank you for ensuring we had a magical day for us and our guests.

    Most fabulous couple and super elegant wedding. Thank you for choosing the Aqua Azul. Such a pleasure to host your wedding. Congratulations and best wishes. Dorit and the Aqua Azul team.

  • All our guests told us this was the best wedding! The pictures around the city skyline, and the Statue of Liberty are amazing! You literally float at the Statue of Liberty for a few minutes for pics! We wanted a wedding that was different than your cookie cutter weddings so we started looking into weddings on a yacht on the Hudson. We looked 5 different ships before deciding on the Aqua Azul. The Aqua Azul blew the other ships out of the water. It was the largest and the most up to date out of all of them. Plus you had the whole ship to yourselves. We had our concerns, but Dorit took care of everything. She definitely had her hands full with us. We are very picky eaters and wanted a very specific menu. She went above and beyond to make it all work! We had the most amazing mashed potato bar during cocktail hour! We were worried about not being able to do a rehearsal, but her and her staff have clearly done this before. They had everyone lined up in order and ready to go.... Read more

  • What a Great Venue! My wedding was on August 19,2017 aboard the grand Aqua Azul Yacht. This was the best idea I could ever have for my Wedding (Thank you Camille from Smooth Sailing for recommending). The yacht speaks for itself - It is beautiful, classy and Dorit the owner and her staff was truly amazing. I could not have asked for anything more. The weather was beautiful. I had my wedding in the evening where ceremony begun at 7:30PM - The yacht has about 4 decks and the ceremony was on the 4th (top deck) and the cocktail hour was on deck 3 then the dinner hour was on deck 2. My guests mind was blown away, as soon as they stepped on the yacht at 7:00PM (1st deck), they were greeted with about 6 wait staff standing there holding drinks (sparkling water, wine of your choice etc.). When my guest saw that, they were looking forward to what will happen next on this fabulous yacht and they were not disappointed. Everyone has told me repeatedly and still talking about how that was the best... Read more

  • My wife is in the unique position of being a part of the nautical event planning industry, which means working with all of the Hudson Harbor yachts and all of the boat owners since opening her business 13 years ago. When it came time to plan our daughter's wedding, she treated our daughter like any other bride and showed her several boats and discussed options. We secretly hoped she'd select the Aqua Azul yacht because I knew from years of experience that the boat successfully executes flawless events each and every time. We were very glad when she told me their decision was the Aqua Azul, in part because of the covered rooftop deck with outdoor dance floor that allows guests to have the sensation of being outside even if the weather is not optimum. Weather is the one thing that Dorit cannot control! :) We had very high expectations for the event and have to say a very grateful & heartfelt thank you to Dorit and her entire staff because those expectations were exceeded. The e... Read more

  • Our wedding aboard the Aqua Azul this past Sunday was more than anything we could have hoped for!!!! The yacht itself is so beautiful, but to see the way it was set up for our wedding made it magical. We had ~180 guests and it was so impressive how smoothly the entire evening flowed!! Dorit was so accommodating and flexible with all our requests through the entire planning process and the staff throughout our reception was friendly and attentive. We've had so many of our family members and friends tell us how unique our reception was, which was exactly the feeling we were going for :) Thank you so much, Dorit and everyone at the Aqua Azul for the wedding of our dreams!!!!!

  • Dorit was PHENOMENAL to work with. She has all the connections to florists, photographers, etc if you need it. My wedding was PERFECT!!! The yacht was exquisite. My guests are STILL talking about how lovely our wedding was...the food...the service...the cruise around Manhattan...everything. I can't wait until our 5 year anniversary because we'd love to take another cruise. I can't sing the praises of the NOA DANIELLE loud enough!

  • My September wedding aboard Aqua Azul was amazing. All of my guests told me it was the best wedding they'd ever attended and a big part of that was Dorit, her staff and this beautiful venue. I got engaged in the Spring and knew I needed to find a venue quickly, this was quite difficult because I wanted to get married within 4 or 5 months. Dorit was a total professional and her team did everything they could to make our day as beautiful and memorable as possible. Because I am a professional event producer and I work in the food & beverage business, I had a lot of requests and high expectations. I can honestly say the vast majority of my expectations were met or exceeded. I know how much it takes to have a nearly perfect wedding in NYC and having it on Aqua Azul was the best decision we made. It was on the water, provided breathtaking views, great food, wonderful service and was unforgettable all around. I had a sunset ceremony of the open roof deck, followed by a cocktail h... Read more
