Drew and I wanted to thank you and share that the entire evening aboard World Yacht's "Princess" was nothing less than perfect and spectacular. The food, the preparation, the service--EVERYTHING--was at the highest rating one could possibly offer. Yolanda Trujillo and her team were unbelievably gracious and extremely professional in everything they performed. We have nothing but praise for you and for World Yacht. To add to it, a newly married couple rarely gets to enjoy themselves at their own reception, but that was not the case for us. Every morsel, every drink, every dance, cake cutting, etc. flowed seamlessly and we were able to joyfully celebrate the entire evening. Thank you again. Our guests were overwhelmed at the experience and we only have you, Yolanda and everyone at World Yacht to thank.

Fantastic is the operative word! The entire evening was a delight.
Thanks for all you did to make that celebration so special.
It was out of this world!...As my niece said it was one class act and everyone thought the staff were wonderful and the cruise manager was absolutely perfect....I could not believe how she took care of me and all of us...she deserves accolades, and all the staff were excellent and all our guests commented on that fact as well as the good food....everyone thought it was delicious....I do not know how you all did it and then ordered up and got the perfect evening, weather wise...the Statue of Liberty was out of this world and so was the view of the city...we wanted you to know we had a wonderful time and now have a beautiful memory.

It was a true pleasure working with the both of you to set everything up for the party. All the guests were pleased, not only with the venue, but with the amazing staff and service. The decorating team and florists were equally impressed with all of the pre-event assistance we received and the ease with which we were able to accomplish all (thank you Luis and staff!) And good thing we arrived well in advance of the start time or we would not have been able to get all the decoration in place. Most importantly, the bride and groom were happy! And that's what it's all about in the end, making the newlyweds smile. We will definitely keep you in mind for future events and I wish you continued success!
Thank you so much, our event was really great. Luis was fantastic and perfect for our event, I am so happy we had him. He made both of us and our family and friends feel very special, as did the rest of the staff too. The service was top quality and we were not only made to feel like VIP's, but he was also even making sure we did things like eat (quite challenging when talking to so many people!!). It really felt like he was looking out for us the entire night and I felt so much more comfortable having him around. The DJ was great too. The chocolate brownies were amazing, shame I only got to eat half of one!! They made sure we all had sparkling wine for the toast (something they missed in Mexico) and bringing around the brandy and baileys after dinner drinks was a lovely touch. Everyone said we throw a great party and can't wait for the next one!

We could not have anticipated what a fabulous evening it would be. The yacht, food, staff and all over ambience was fabulous and the views were simply breathtaking. Our waiter ensured all our guests were well looked after and did not want for anything. Everyone was blown away and thought the whole thing was simply awesome.

I wanted to take the opportunity to thank you for taking care of all the arrangements for the Oswego College Foundation Board dinner. We all had the most wonderful evening, it was perfect. Our college President was thrilled and the board was so pleased with the event.
The cruise was fabulous! It was truly an unbelievable experience to see the Statue of Liberty that close with the city lit up all behind it. The food was wonderful and the service was incredible. I am not a fan of boats and was nervous to go but am so very glad I did. I have been, and will, highly recommend it to everyone going to NY. Just awesome.
Thank you to the team at World Yacht for making our daughter's graduation dinner a wonderful experience. It was the perfect end to an exciting day that began with the NYU Graduation ceremony at Yankee Stadium, included several subway rides and finally the World Yacht cruise. Our family truly had the chance to see many parts of NYC that fascinated our daughter for 4 years! Amanda and team in the office did a great job guiding us through the reservation and accommodating special needs among our guests. A very special thank you to Gigi and her team for perfect, professional and respectful service throughout the evening. We have added the World Yacht Cruise to our list of "things to do in NY," and have already started to spread that word to friends and family!

Wow! What a wonderful experience my husband and I had on your dinner cruise The staff was outstanding! We spilled a glass of water and the glass broke. They whisked it away without any disruption to the evening. Also, my husband didn't like the salad and they immediately switched to a different appetizer. The photographer was very good, too. We just had to purchase the photo.
Again, thank you for an amazing evening. When we come back to New York, I would love to do it again!
I was on board last night for the NYU Hospital cruise and I just had to tell you what a wonderful experience I had. The evening was perfect in every way and the staff went out of their way to make the night so beautiful. Thank you so much. I will definitely be back!
Wanted to let you know the Mother's Day dinner cruise was very, very nice. Thank you for all your help meeting my needs, your "customer service" is excellent and a rarity today.
I have never written a letter of thanks to a company before. However, my recent excursion with World Yacht impels me to thank you for the wonderful experience I recently had on one of your harbor cruises. The moment our group of four couples stepped on board the ship, we all immediately felt as if we were on vacation. The crew was so welcoming that they set the tone for a happy and serene evening. The cares of the day literally melted away.
Our elegantly appointed table was waiting for us and it afforded us the luxury of intimate and joyful conversation. The wait staff was attentive but unobtrusive. Even before the yacht left the dock, we were offered lovely drinks and hors-d’oevres. It was definitely a party at which we felt pampered and well cared for. The dinner menu offered such fine selections, all definitely haute cuisine.
The joy of going on deck between courses cannot be adequately described. As the ship moved smoothly in the currents of the magnificent Hudson, we watched the lights of the breath-taking New York skyline on one side and the luminous colors of the sunset on the other. As the sky darkened we could not fail to be inspired as we sailed so close to the Statue of Liberty that was illuminated in golden light. As we continued to sail we were caressed by gentle breezes and lulled by the lapping of the waves. Adding to the good feeling was the wonderful dance music. How romantic it was to dance on board what we felt was our own personal yacht!
It was hard to leave when the ship slipped back into harbor. The dockside parking was no small consolation as we made our way back home feeling that we had been far, far away. I can’t wait until next time!

Yesterday my extended family was on board the Duchess for the Brunch Cruise. It was the most wonderful experience. The relaxed casual but elegant setting and the wide range of exquisitely prepared foods in the buffet were exceptional. The most wonderful part was that no one in our family had the pressure to be the host or hostess. We were all able to relax, talk, laugh , and feel pampered, without any of us having to cook, refill glasses, or make sure everyone had what they needed.
On behalf of the Kent Volunteer Fire Department we would like to thank you for the outstanding service you provided to us on March 25th, 2006. Your dedication and professionalism made our special night much more enjoyable. Mr. John Triolo’s patience and knowledge of World Yacht made the reservation process much easier than we expected.

On behalf of everyone at Oxford University Press, I would like to thank you and everyone associated with World Yacht for the wonderful staff party we had on June 22. The service was impeccable. Our president, who has only been with us since February, was extremely impressed and hasn't stopped thanking me!
Please extend my sincere thanks to all the staff who were patient, helpful, and extremely efficient. I have already given your name to a couple of people who are looking to hold corporate and private events in the future, and I will continue to praise World Yacht to whoever will listen, for a long time to come.
