GROUP & PRIVATE EVENTS
River Lady is the perfect venue to host that special event.
Whether you prefer the Victorian setting on the main deck, or the more casual outdoor setting on the upper deck, the River Lady is the inimitable place to host your celebration. She is available for private parties, day or evening, Monday – Saturday. One private deck is provided during one of our cruises. The upper deck seats 50 with a dance floor, or 60 without. The main deck seats 75 – 90 with a dance floor. Be sure to stop by and see why you should consider the most elegant cruise boat in the state for your event.
Here are just a few examples of what our customers had to say about their special events on the River Lady.
50th Anniversary Celebration
It could not have been a more enjoyable occasion! My parents and guests had a wonderful time on their luncheon cruise to celebrate their 50th Wedding Anniversary. The service was tremendous! Our guests were treated with much courtesy and patience. The food was delicious and large portions! From planning to execution, the team with the River Lady was exceptional and they helped us to create a new but forever cherished family memory.

Yacht Club Party!
I organized trip on River Lady for 100+ people from local yacht clubs on Saturday Night. Everyone had a blast! Captain Lance and the crew were excellent. So friendly! Food and drinks were great as well. We spent the evening enjoying a wonderful night on the river, enjoying the scenery and dancing the night away. We see the River Lady daily cruising up and down the river and many of us had never been on before. Since the event all I have heard from people who attended the party was what a great night it was and how much fun they had. I highly recommend and can say enough about the professionalism of all involved with the River Lady. Looking forward to my next trip!

Thank you so very much, Captain Lance, for a great day sailing with you and your crew!
The New Jersey State Federation of Women’s Clubs had a fabulous time: the cruise was smooth sailing, food delicious, history interesting and your crew most accommodating. And thanks so much for arranging a beautiful weather day!
We are very grateful that you helped us to raise over $2300 for Prevent Child Abuse – NJ – working to make better childhoods for all of NJ’s children.
Special State Project Chairman
I really want to thank Captain Lance and his staff especially Doug.
I booked a dinner party aboard the Riverlady for thirty-six people to celebrate my wife’s 60th birthday. Our party aboard the authentic paddle steam boat was incredible. At one point while dancing with my wife she looked into my eyes and said she was having the greatest time. That in and of itself was priceless. The whole experience was almost ruined because 6 of my senior guests were about 3 minutes late for the boat. Just as we were about to launch they showed up and while I know that Captain Lance was under no obligation to wait he graciously allowed them time to get on the boat. One of those seniors was my wife’s 90 year old mother. My wife’s entire party would have been disastrous had her mother not got on this ship and so I just want to say thank you again Captain Lance for you patience and understanding. May God bless you. We are planning to book another larger party aboard the Riverlady next year. Ps the DJ was awesome!

“Couldn’t ask for a better experience!!!”
My wife and I celebrated our Anniversary with Captain Lance and crew on the evening dinner and dance cruise. From start to finish, the experience was great. The staff was courteous and attentive. The food and drinks were good. Watching the sun go down while on the water was very romantic. The entertainment was a lot of fun. We will definitely be back again. Thanks to all for a beautiful night.

Wonderful Way to Celebrate a Birthday!
We celebrated my mother’s 80th birthday aboard the River Lady. The dinner was delicious and the service was excellent. Our group of 20 ranged in age from 16 to 80. My twenty-five year old daughter said it was one of the best parties ever! The frozen drinks were awesome.

"Thank you from the Stoehr Family"
Dear Captain Chambeau and crew, just want to say thank you for a wonderful evening on the beautiful River Lady. Our family enjoyed the delicious dinner, the beautiful weather, plus the amazing sunset while cruising the river. It was so relaxing and enjoyable we didn’t want to leave. We will definitely return again for another enjoyable evening.
"A very memorable 75th birthday party"
I just wanted to thank you and your crew for a very memorable 75th birthday party for my mother. Many of our guest were thoroughly enchanted with our luncheon and tour of Toms River that they are planning a future trip with their own families. Thank you again for a wonderful afternoon.
