    Afton House Inn was a perfect venue for our wedding.

    We had our ceremony and reception in the Wheel Room. The staff was attentive and kind. We even had last minute changes that needed to be addressed and Anne & Dan made sure everything was perfect. The food was fabulous. Thank you for making our wedding absolutely perfect.

    We can't wait to go back!

    We had our wedding on the Afton Princess and we couldn’t have asked for anything more. We loved it! The staff was so great and seemed to really care that us and our guests really enjoyed themselves. Anne was our wedding coordinator and she had so many great ideas and suggestions to help us. She also got back to me very quickly on any question I had, no matter how insignificant it was. We also loved the food! We;re still getting comments from our guests on how good our food was on the boat.

    Thank you Anne and cruise line staff for making our day PERFECT!

    We had our ceremony and reception on the afton princess. It was great. Anne met with us several times late in the evening due to our work schedule. She was very accommodating. The wedding went perfect. Lynn the head server and her staff were very kind and helpful. The food was delicious. We received many compliments.

    I would definitely recommend this venue!

    We had our reception at the Afton House Inn in the wheel room back in 2012. After eloping we wanted to host a fun reception for friends and family to celebrate our marriage with us. We wanted something affordable yet offered all-inclusive services like hall, catering, and hotel all in one. Afton had that. We were pleasantly surprised by the care that went in to the preparation.

    Very helpful

    Our wedding and reception were held aboard the Afton Princess and couldn’t be happier with our decision. Anne made our planning super easy. She was very helpful with suggestions when we needed to cut a couple costs on the way. The staff on board was very professional, helpful and they made our day that much more special. I would suggest Afton Cruise’s to anyone planning a summer wedding.

    Highly recommended.

    We had our wedding reception on the Grand Duchess in July 2015. It was absolutely perfect! Our wedding guests are STILL raving about it!
    The food was great, the staff were very professional and helpful, and the atmosphere was amazing.
    In particular, Anne was incredible- she was very helpful, responsive, and really helped bring our vision to life. On the boat, Lynn was wonderful. She made sure all of our guests were well taken care of, especially my husband and I. She really made sure every moment was what we wanted.
    I would highly recommend the Afton-Hudson Cruise Lines, and I know our guests would too!
