  • 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!
    Pleased Client

  • 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!
