    Hi!
    We are getting married at the Melia Caribe Tropical and looking to do an evening dinner cruise type of reception instead of the resort options. I've heard of La Barcaza does this? Does anyone have any experience with them? Or do you know of another company that does this?
    Thanks

        When I searched I could only find the one.

        One thing to note for La Barcaza is that you need to pay for 20 persons in order to make a reservations. You make a 20% deposit when booking and they only do private cruises. There are a variety of options starting at $35 pp for open bar, $45 Dominican Snack, $50 Tropical Snack, $55 Open Bar & Grill (Chicken & Beef), $65 Open Bar & Seafood Grill, and $70 - Open Bar & Mixed Grill (Chicken, Beef & Seafood). It looks like a great relaxing way to spend 2-3 hrs.

        Alot of people even do their weddings on the La Barcaza (La Barcaza). It seems to get rave reviews (see Debbies Dominican Forum, wedding section there's a whole thread dedicated to it).

          I am so glad to hear that! I was really interested in this, but hadn't been able to find any reviews since 2007 so I was a little concerned!

                  Hi lrfriendly,
                  how much does your cruise cost per person? I'm looking into doing a sunset cruise for our wedding party the day before...

                    Hi everyone

                    We are getting married at the Melia Caribe, punta cana in November. We are having our reception on the La Barcaza at sunset. I'm sooooo excited! The pics I've seen look amazing. Dinner cruise at sunset with dancing under the stars - what could be better!
