We've shot several wedding receptions on the Solaris. The staff is always helpful and cheerful. The food and service are great. Tom and Cindy Warriner - Photocraft by Tom Warriner
I planned a wedding where the reception was on the Solaris. The staff were great to work with and the food was excellent! It is an ideal location for a reception. The music was great and everyone enjoyed being able to utilized all areas of the yacht.
We've been fortunate to work with SunQuest Cruises on a few occasions. Not only is their service excellent but the experience is one-of-a-kind. They take care of their clients and it shows! Highly recommend them!
