Testimonials


We had a GREAT time on the boat - It was just wonderful - everything you said and more!

The night was fantastic - as usual! Thanks for all your work & see you next year!

The feedback we received was wonderful!
Thanks again for all your help, especially at the last minute.
I look forward to working with you in the future.

Just a note to say thank you for everything!! Daisy was great along with all the other staff!! Parents were thrilled with everything & the food was amazing - just an overall great night!! Couldn’t do it without you - see you next year!!!

We had a fabulous time!!!! Thank you so much for all you did!!!
We never could have done all this without you :)

Life has been a whirlwind, since the bat mitzvah. Anyway, the party was great! Everything was perfect. We received so many compliments on how much fun the event was and how nice the yacht and food were.
Thanks for being there every step of the way. 

Our Spring Bash was a success on the yacht. Guests really enjoyed:

•The style of the yacht
• The views
• No lines at the bars
• The food at dinner

Thank you so much for planning this with me. I really appreciated all your help! 

Everything was great – our waiter was very nice and the food was better than everyone expected. All had a great time. BTW, I recommended your cruise to 2 guys being taken around by Christina, our mtg planner at the W. Sounds like they may be booking something with you. They were most interested in how the food was. Tx for all your quick help, Meeting Planner
(Note: those 2 guys were from Solvay Chemicals and, yes, they did book a late fall cruise with Smooth Sailing)

My family and I had an incredible time on the Majesty for our Sangeet event on April 21st. The staff and crew were super helpful and took care of us and our guests really nicely. Everything went super smoothly and for many of our guests, they were seeing NYC and statue of the Liberty for the first time. The entire experience was breathtaking and unforgettable. It was an event to remember for a life time. Thank you for making it happen!

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 perfect. 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 from 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.

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 weather was perfect, the flowers were a great touch, Bruce the Narrator 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!

It was a wonderful time and the attendees were pleased! I just want to personally thank you for all of your hard work that went into pre-planning this event with me. I appreciated your communication, flexibility and attention to detail!

It was nice to meet Dorit—she was easy to work with and overall, 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! 

Just a quick note to let you know we were flooded with compliments from the client we recently sent you.
They LOVED what you provided for them. Staute, history, music, you name it!
Thank you always for treating my clients like VIPS! You are the best.

You have been so kind,wonderful and super helpful for the past 2 years and we couldn't appreciate it more! :)
