  • I used Commodore as a destination wedding because i live in Florida, but my family lives in the SF Bay Area. With my aunt playing point woman, I was able to get it done with minimal stress. I think if I had to do it by myself with no one to look at the boats or food, I would have been fine to move forward just because of how thorough they are. I got a checklist of all the things that came with my package (DJ, Cake, etc) and a price for extras (Black Jack Table). Our wedding coordinator and day of person was Brenda, and she was on the ball. The wedding itself was FANTASTIC. I hired an outside photographer and the cruise director and DJ Dan, who are regulars, were able to give him timing and direction for when the bridges and islands would go by for folks to take pictures. The waitstaff and bartender were attentive. Walter, our cruise director, was wonderful, answered all my questions and kept the buffet open until an 30minutes before we docked back. Now my wedding was semi-... Read more

  • We had our wedding cocktail hour back in November 2016 with Commodore Cruises. I would not recommend Commodore for an event. First, they couldn't provide us with a tasting despite asking numerous times and ultimately just ignored our request. Second, Commodore tried to tack on extra charges a couple weeks before the wedding. In the best of light, Commodore is so scatter brained that they have no idea how to communicate terms of a contact correctly. In the worst of light, Commodore knows it's weeks away from my wedding and with all deposits paid, I don't really have any choice. We ultimately paid it because we had no choice. There was absolutely no apology for their mistake. Third, I worked with Jewell months before to make sure we were setup for the photo slide show. When I came to drop off supplies for the boat, I tested the slide show. It didn't work. I went back three or four times and the problem still wasn't solved. The real issue was the staff, including Jewe... Read more

  • Wow! Where do I start. Commodore Cruises and Hannah, our event coordinator, were completely amazing! We had a destination wedding in San Francisco for 40 guests in May. I researched over 30 venues from wineries, to hotels, to Tahoe resorts, and from my very first contact with Hannah at Commodore I was impressed. She took the time to describe all the yachts, listen to my vision and budget and provide me with several quotes of different options - everything from a transfer only to a full event package. We ended up choosing to do our complete event (underway ceremony, dinner and reception/dance) with Commodore on the Merlot. Their prices were surprisingly reasonable and included everything we wanted. After we signed the initial contract, there was very little for me to do until a couple months before the wedding which was fantastic because I had plenty to do picking my dress, doing the invitations, making my DIY items and planning my local reception back in Colorado which we held 2 weeks ...

  • It truly was the best day of our lives --everything was beautiful and unforgettable. Minor details didn't go as planned, but that is part of the process. Best advice is to stay on top of it--keep contacting them months prior to your special day if you do not want to get bombarded with an overwhelming to-do list the last 10 chaotic days before your wedding. Also, stay on top of the "Meet the Fleet" dates, as they might not be available the last couple of weeks before your big day, if you want to try the delicious food they serve. Your guests will enjoy cruising the Bay.

  • We had a wonderful wedding aboard the Merlot this past summer. It was perfect for our small wedding of 35 people. The only issues we ever had with Commodore was that it was a destination wedding, as we live in Canada, and getting in touch with them was somewhat difficult. Also, we had a switch in our wedding coordinator during the planning process and details that we had gone over with our initial coordinator were not shared or passed along to the coordinator we ended up having. The coordinator we had for the duration of our planning process was wonderful and very detail orientated.

  • We've always wanted a yacht wedding since we love boats and are planning to get our own, so when my husband proposed, it was decided that we will get married on one. I called in and told Linda everything about what we wanted (this was April 2011, my wedding was July 2011)she scheduled us for a viewing and the rest was history. We chose the Merlot and it was a very intimate wedding with less than 50 guests. Perfect ceremony, the food was great and Jamie and Linda helped us all throughout the preparations. 4.9 only bec Linda was our coordinator, (she seemed always busy) so it was Jamie who really took care of us. I had the wedding that I wanted and we thank Commodore events for that!

  • Do not plan your wedding or any event with Commodore! If you do, you risk having an emotionally traumatic experience. My wife and I had our wedding on Commodore about a year ago, and what should have been the most perfect day of our lives was derailed. To validate this claim, my wife and I sued Commodore in Alameda Court for the damages I am about to summarize, and we won. After reviewing the evidence, the judge took pity on us and agreed that our wedding was a night of chaos. From the first interaction AFTER we signed the contract, we found that Linda Wright, the Director of Sales, was trying to use tactics a used-car salesman uses. My wife, who did most of the planning, remarked from the beginning that interactions with Linda felt very "fake." What she meant was that Linda pretends to care about your wedding, but she really doesn't. However, she does care about loading more expenses into your package and sucking your money out of your wallet. To every small request she re... Read more

  • We did not feel like we were important, originally we made an appointment on a Sunday, the person was a no show, said she would discount our event, also they were not really in contact with us throughout, we were the ones who had to always initiate communication, we did not receive any communication until a week prior to wedding, then we felt rushed. The venue was gorgeous it was on the Merlot yacht on the San Francisco Bay waters,very beautiful night for a fall evening. Just felt like the professionalism was not 100%
