Choose Your Cruise on the Vista Fleet for Your Special Events
by Sheryl Jensen
The Vista Fleet has been one of the jewels of the tourist industry in Duluth for many years. Many locals, however, forget that a cruise on the Vista Star or the Vista Queen is not just for tourists! What better way to show off Duluth to visiting friends or family and play tourist yourself for a day, then to take a beautiful harbor cruise?
Or are you planning a special event for the summer or fall months? Do you have a wedding, or a wedding shower, an anniversary, special birthday party, or a summer celebration to thank your employees, on your calendar?
Whatever your special event might be, consider making the Vista Fleet your first stop for planning a day or evening your group will never forget.
The Vista Star is the largest of their fleet and can hold up to 220 guests for a reception or 125 for a sit down dinner. It has 3 decks, 2 of which are enclosed. In addition to private full boat or deck charters, this vessel also provides their daily grand sightseeing cruises as well as their pizza and evening dinner cruises.
Their intimate private charter boat, the Vista Queen, is available for small groups. The vessel can accommodate a maximum of 36 passengers for a sit down dinner charter or up to 50 passengers for a charter reception (weather permitting).
Sarah Steinbach, who owns the Vista Fleet with her husband Justin, says, “Think outside the box with all your special events by talking to us first.”
One of a Kind Weddings
“So many people these days are looking for ‘destination’ weddings, trying to find a spot that is unique. Couples who love their city also love to show it off for their weddings or receptions. A wedding/reception package on the Vista is perfect!” says Sarah.
With a customized package to fit your wedding budget,
the Vista Fleet can provide the unique setting of the beautiful boat with Lake Superior and the Lift Bridge as your backdrop. Or you could have your wedding elsewhere and have the reception onboard. Whether you want a small wedding with just the bride and groom and two guests, champagne, and a cake; or a sit-down dinner for twenty, forty, or more, the Vista folks will work with you for the picture perfect wedding. They can even assist with fresh flowers, decorations, and music.
Memorable Parties or Meetings
Are you in charge of a business meeting with clients or out of town business people? The Vista Star is the ticket for a breakfast, lunch, or dinner tour.
For a anniversary, birthday, or retirement party, let them do the work for you. “We work with Grandma’s Restaurant and Duluth Grill as our preferred caterers but are also open to other catering choices. Our preferred caterers also provide rental services of linens, china and flatware, napkins, and service staff,” says Sarah.
Treat your guests and clients to an incredible on-the-water experience they’ll remember for years to come. The Vista Fleet allows you to please everyone, every time, with custom designed meetings and events.
Sarah adds, “We sometimes take for granted how amazing the harbor is. See the city from a different point of view and connect with the water. We want to put you out there to enjoy it for yourself and make your special day even more special.”
