How to Plan a Dinner Cruise For a Family Reunion, Berkeley, California

If you have relatives living in different cities, it can be difficult to bring everyone together for birthdays and holiday celebrations. Planning a family reunion can bring everyone together, and a dinner cruise aboard a yacht will create a memorable experience with delicious cuisine and stargazing. To ensure the gathering goes off without a hitch, here are some tips to follow. 

Steps to Take When Planning a Family Dinner Cruise


If you have a large family, keeping track of all the logistics can be overwhelming for one person. To ensure you don’t overlook any tasks, delegate different aspects of planning to a few family members. One person can be in charge of sending out invitations, another can collect money to book the cruise, while someone else can handle communications with the boat charter.

Reviewing the Menu

yachtFood is the main component of a dinner party, so make sure the menu offered by your yacht service can accommodate your whole family. Find out whether any guest has food allergies or dietary restrictions, then review the menu of your boat charter to address any issues that might come up. If a dietary conflict comes up, your service should be able to work with you to provide a special meal for the family member it impacts.

Keeping Records

The person communicating with the yacht company should have a copy of all relevant records, including receipts of payments, finalized copies of menus, contracts, and any other paperwork. Keep electronic copies on your mobile device or bring along printed files to prevent any last-minute issues or confusion with the boat charter.
