It is with warmest appreciation that I thank you for your assistance in the first Ottawa event - the Nature Conservancy of Canada's (NCC) Nature Talks: Tales of Nature event. With almost 100 people on board the River Queen, we heard David Phillips' tales of Ontario's changing weather - the wet, warm and wild. Guests also enjoyed the songs and stories of adventurer, singer/songwriter Ian Tamblyn to close out what was a wonderful evening.
The staff of the river Queen and the catering staff were extremely professional, going above and beyond to help make this a wonderful experience for our guests. Guests commented on the wonderful dinner and the many food choices that were offered. The journey along the Ottawa River was spectacular and we all felt we were in very capable hands.
On behalf of NCC, thank you for making this evening a success and for helping NCC to strive to conserve Canada's most ecologically significant areas.

Nous avons pris la croisiere pour un mariage, 15 juin, 2014. Le staff a été exceptionnel, non seulement le staff du soir mais celui du matin aussi. Le jeune homme qui nous as acceuilli le matin meme du mariage pour la deco fut tres, tres serviable ainsi que Jason. En soirée, la barmaid, d'apres moi a été "above and beyond the call of duty". C'est à elle a qui j'addressait toujours mes demandes et c'est elle qui allait au gerant, elle a meme emballé le restant du lunch pour nous. Il ne faut pas oublié la petite Emmanuelle, toujours dispo pour répondre a nos questions, un mariage pour la mariee c'est toujours tres stressant et je sais que parfois mes nerfs me rendait peut-etre un peu fatiguante et meme un peu raide mais Emmanuelle toujours tres professionel a reussit a garder le control et me rassurer. Un GROS MERCI a tous, d'avoir fait de ma soirée une a ne pas oubliée! .

Our staff enjoyed a perfect evening on the boat. The weather was fantastic.
The variety and quality of the food was excellent. The music played during dinner and the dance were just perfect which is hard to do with a crowd of 16 – 80.
Most of all what impressed me the most was the service provided by all of the staff. Jason was accommodating, helpful and available at all times. Not only did your chef provide a great meal he was friendly, pleasant and checked in with us often. The DJ was sure to check on the type of music we wanted and was also very pleasant. The other hospitality staff displayed the same service traits.
It was evident that all of your staff enjoy their job and work tremendously as a team.
In addition to the great evening I would like to thank you for all of your assistance in planning the cruise. You made the entire process very smooth.
