A complimentary DJ is included with your Private Dinner Cruise package. We will work with you to ensure music is played to complement your musical tastes.

We can also arrange for boarding photos as a fun gift to your guests and have them ready at the end of your cruise, or a CD can be sent after the event.

Catering & Bar

You can choose from our delicious preset menu options or let us customize a special menu for your group. We can accommodate vegetarian and gluten-free diets. When you rent the Carolina Belle or Charleston Princess, bartenders are included in that fee and are part of the crew. You can host bars, or have your guests pay for their own beverages — some groups like a special “signature cocktail” or non-alcoholic drink created for their event.
