Dear Captain Andrew, I wanted to write and thank you for helping to orchestrate what turned out to be a wonderful 75th birthday party for our dad. He is still beaming with pride about the event and talking about the wonderful time he had. Thank you for your gracious hospitality aboard the boat and for the delicious meal. Thanks again for a lovely event!

Everyone had an awesome time. They said the food was fantastic, the ambiance was great and the yacht was beautiful! I did not hear a negative word spoken. I only heard how our guests are wanting to plan for their own events on the Spirit of Lake Murray. Thank you for such a lovely experience for our family and friends. I will be sending in a full gratuity for everyone involved! Thank you again!

Hello Spirit Crew, thank you so much for making our rehearsal dinner so special. What a great way to start the weekend! Bringing our families together for an intimate and exciting evening on board was exactly what we needed. The meal, the service, being able to share in stories and toasts, all of it. My new bride and I truly thank you for making sure our wedding weekend started off the right way.

Chaplain Colton, please thank your staff for an amazing evening on board your ship! I have heard nothing but great things from my family and friends. Being able to have nearly 100 of them in such a unique and intimate setting was perfect. We were a little worried at first that 100 may have been tight on board, but now we may even plan a future event with more people attending! We could not have asked for better weather, the sunset was beautiful. Also Chaplain Colton, thank you again for your service to our military. Being able to celebrate my 30 year retirement from the Army on your ship was a fantastic way to do it.

“Your staff members were so helpful in helping me pull off this surprise 25th Anniversary party. They were so accommodating in every detail of the dinner cruise. My wife and I, being able to spend 2 ½ hours on-board the Spirit of Lake Murray surrounded by family and close friends was the best gift I could give to her. We made memories that will last a lifetime and I wanted to personally thank each and every one that helped make this surprise cruise a complete success! You went above and beyond anything that I could have expected and I would recommend the Spirit of Lake Murray to anyone for making lasting special memories.

My wife and I would like to thank you and the Lake Murray Cruise staff for a very, very pleasant experience helping us celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary on July 28th. All our guests enjoyed The Spirit of Lake Murray and many remarked what a unique and wonderful way to celebrate an occasion. Gloria and I will be very happy to recommend you to any of your prospective clients. Again, thank you for your attention to detail and the kindness of your crew. We are certainly looking forward to spending another evening with you sometime in the very near future.
