Private Cruise

An American Lady private cruise is a great way to celebrate a special occasion.  Rehearsal dinners, family reunions, anniversaries, birthdays, class reunions and graduation parties are frequently held aboard our yacht.

You can trust our professional Event Planners to pay close attention to your group’s needs and ensure that all of the details are addressed to the highest standard of excellence.

We tailor each event to the planner’s needs and desires.  For some guests it’s a light hors d’eourves and cocktail party on a two-hour cruise while others desire a four course dinner on an extended four hour cruise. Tell us about your vision and we will assist in making it a reality.
