Boat/cruise/catamaran rental - La Barcaza

Recommended Posts

I have an afterthought question... I really want those sunset photos on the beach after our ceremony (5pm), and the sun sets around 6:30 in Jan. So our pictures are ending at 6, then getting on the bus for the boat at 6:30. We will totally miss the sunset, do you think our reception will still be a hit? We did hire DJ Mannia, so I know they party part will be great, but dinner in the dark? I'd really love your opinion.

Thanks in advance!

It will still be great - they have lights, and I brought electric flickering tealights for the tables, and they looked great! Believe me, it will be awesome!

erinleigh, thank you so much for your review! we had some stuff change at our resort and decided to change to having our reception on la barcaza! you're right, flori is amazingly responsive and has been a huge help so far!

 

this may have been answered before (because i think i remember reading it somewhere) but do the "open bar" menus include more than beer and rum? i asked flori about this and she said anything like wine or vodka drinks will cost extra, but i get the impression that this isn't always the case? does anyone know? thanks!

Thanks for your review! I'm so excited I have it booked for our reception as well. The pics look awesome. I'm so happy we picked this option. For the ladies wondering if they should book in advance I would say yes. I took a bit and someone else was interested in my date. Its in April so I would if you want to make sure.

Thanks! As for the Open Bar - it is just rum and beer, but they have all kinds of mixes, so they made some very yummy drinks for us! We also added wine and champagne to our bar menu. We didnt end up drinking it all though.

We have booked LaBarcaza for our wedding reception! We get picked up at 4pm and go on the sunset dinner cruise.

 

We are going with the mix grill open bar option, and may decide to book an additional hour.

 

Flori has been great to work with thus far! Our photographer is HDC who also works with LaBarcaza so that makes it convenient as well!!

 

We are doing this as a surprise for our guests! We are very excited!!!!

We are doing this for the night of our wedding!  I actually ended up deciding on the Dominican just because of this.  If you read Erinleigh's review on it, it sounds absolutely amazing.  We are not sure how many people we will have so they are letting us do the deposit based on 30 people at the $60 dinner option.  I am SOOOOO excited!  We also are keeping this a secret from our guests so they will be pleasantly surprised!

Hey ladies,

 

Thanks for all of the reviews...and WOW I totally want to do this as well. I'm SOLD!! I only have one question though, what happens if it starts to rain? Or what if it's raining all day on your wedding day? Do they accept cancellations? Or would my guests just be stuck on the lower deck the entire night?
