Newport Beach is known for its stunning landscape. As a seaside locale, it’s hard to beat the beautiful views. That’s just one reason (among many) why couples love to say their “I do’s” in this destination. A Newport Beach wedding is bound to be memorable based on the scenery alone, so naturally, a rehearsal dinner in Newport Beach must follow suit. One of the best ways to guarantee this is to opt for a yacht venue because a rehearsal dinner on the water is easily one of the ideal ways to take advantage of seeing area sights while also experiencing a little high-seas adventure in the process. Plus, when you choose to travel with City Cruises, your event is elevated with exceptional cuisine and amenities designed to impress every guest. But what else is there to know? Actually, plenty. So, let’s get started on how we can help you host a rehearsal dinner that everyone will find unforgettable.

With a landscape that seems as though it was designed for memorable nuptials, it’s no surprise couples head here not only for their ceremony and reception, but for every other wedding-related event they are hosting — including, of course, rehearsal dinners. City Cruises offers several rehearsal dinner packages to choose from on our Newport Beach Wedding Events page, and the fact that we can tailor options for every party size, style, and budget means the experience will be stress-free. (Something all brides and grooms always hope for but don’t always have.) With a host of impressive features and amenities including exquisite views, spacious climate-controlled interiors, and expansive open-air exterior decks—among other things—we create the perfect evening for everyone in attendance.


How To Celebrate Your Love in Style

From huge bay windows, designer wall and fabric coverings, and granite bars to custom lighting and modern woodwork, our fleet is bound to awe your event attendees. (In fact, some boats even include a baby grand piano, large-screen TVs, a marble fireplace, and a sky lounge!) With customizable dining options, your choice of entertainment, and our unique cruise options, good vibes will rule the night. Plus, because we offer complimentary City Cruises event planners to help you organize the evening, they’ll work with you to personalize your pre-wedding celebration encompassing any desired custom décor and themes.
