I would like to thank you and the crew of the Empress for showing us such a wonderful time for our International Cruise. From the moment we arrived for set up to the time we disembarked, your crew treated us like royalty. No let me change that, we were treated like family. Everyone that we came in contact with was warm, friendly and courteous to our every need. … You can be sure that we will be planning next year’s cruise with the Gateway Clipper Fleet!”


I just wanted to thank you and the crew of the Princess for a wonderful cruise. We heard lots of compliments from our participants. The food was great and the staff was very nice. Our participants even came from around the globe! We are glad they got such a spectacular view of Pittsburgh and enjoyed a wonderful evening with co-workers. The group photographs were a big hit and a fun keepsake!


 You (the Private Events Manager) were delightful to work with and I appreciate your assistance in making everything perfect for (my company). People commented on the Clipper Team, great food, awesome DJ and especially our Cruise Director who took care of all of our needs!

One of my very first memories of seeing how beautiful Pittsburgh really is was a view from on board the Gateway Clipper. Since then I have always thought about sharing that experience with others. Planning an event with them was a dream come true! From start to finish the experience working with the Gateway Clipper was a delight! From sales manager Lori Jaczesko, to the cruise manager, boat DJ and staff I was blown away by the friendly and helpful staff. It is a rare occurrence to find a staff that is so happy to be there and I can only speak to that being a well run organization. The buffet was filled with delicious bites, the tour was informative and interesting and the cruise itself was a delight! I would refer anyone who wants to experience a fun and unique way to see the Burgh to take a ride on the Gateway Clipper.
