Freedom Elite - May 13, 2017

"Our wedding day was simply amazing, filled with love, laughter, family and friends, great music and dancing, and the most delicious food and beverages EVER!! The Freedom Elite was decorated so warm and exquisite, definitely beyond what I had expected. The view of the Delaware River was gorgeous and set the perfect ambiance for our day. Everyone in attendance was so ecstatic and entertained to the fullest. The staff aboard were very friendly, professional, and accommodating. My wedding coordinator, Robyn Schwartz, was the best coordinator anyone can ask for. Our wedding flowed so beautifully without any glitches. Family and friends are still elated about our wedding day. We are so thankful, blessed, and pleased we chose the Freedom Elite Private Yacht for our venue."

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I make changes to my reservation? +

For changes to your order, you must contact our customer service center at (866) 455-3866.

How do you accommodate for food allergies? +

Our vessels do not permit any outside food, however, for specific dietary requests, please call us to ensure we are able to accommodate your concerns.

While we do our best by trying to offer gluten and allergy free products as well as gluten sensitive menu items, we openly handle several allergens throughout our galleys. While we take precautions to keep ingredients separate, we cannot guarantee a gluten free environment. We do not have separate prep surfaces, cook tops or equipment. Our chefs prepare and cook in common areas with shared equipment, therefore the items may come in contact with other food products.

How does the charter process work? +

Great question! Check out our "New to Event Planning" page for full details. If you still have questions, don't hesitate to give us a call.

Is my boat wheelchair accessible? +

The majority of our fleet decks and restrooms are able to accommodate most standard-sized wheelchairs. We ask that for specific accessibility concerns you please call the local Hornblower number and ensure that you are seated on an accessible deck.

What do I need to bring in order to pick up my tickets? +

We ask that guests have photo identification and their cruise order number handy to pick up the tickets. Our ticket booths open one hour prior to cruise boarding time and are conveniently located near our ship's docking location.

Will I have cell service onboard? +

Most cellular services are available on the water as we do not cruise beyond one mile off shore.


We had our late-May wedding on the Freedom Elite, and it was the best decision we made! We wanted a wedding that was intimate and unique, and having our ceremony and reception on the water was perfect!
