    Our wedding on the Empress of Canada harbour cruise ship was the most amazing experience of my life. Everything was perfect! The comments I have received from guests have been so gratifying. One said this wedding went above and beyond anything they had experienced before and we ... View more we have set the bar so high - nothing can beat it. One guest said she had been to many weddings for 30-year olds but out one (we are in our sixties) topped the lot. Jacqueline was an absolutely amazing advisor/wedding planner. We had many meetings with her as we did not really know where to start, but she recommended the Officiant and DJ and they were wonderful. The lighting and décor was beautiful and the table decorations were subtle and classy as we did not want big flower arrangements that guests had to peer round. The crew in the wheel house were wonderful, as I had to 'hide' in there before the ceremony, but they let the ring bearer (five years old) sit in the captain's chair and look through binoculars! The bar and bar-tender also received very favourable comments and the shots went down very well !!! My only disappointment was that the time went far too quickly. I could have cruised for another five hours!!
