Although you noticed through her smiles and excitement throughout the cruise, Emma had a wonderful time. The staff on our ship was terrific and you and your team did an amazing job. It was nice that we were able to use our synagogue's rabbi yet still have a Mitzvah at Sea. The service on NCL's private island was breathtaking and everything else you did for us will always be remembered.
All our best,
Melissa and Gabe
Evan, Marissa, and Rabbi Rosen,
The three of you should be very proud of what you all did last weekend and leading up to Zack's Mitzvah At Sea. As you know, Zack is the last of our children to become a Bar or Bat Mitzvah. But to be quite honest, it was probably the most memorable experience of the four that we had. You really made everyone feel comfortable and welcomed. You made Zack feel like he was on top of the world. You also took so much pressure off all of us including Zack, Pete and I. Your attention to detail was impeccable. The activities you put together, the laughs at our group dinners, and of course Zack's Bar Mitzvah and celebration were beyond what we expected. Our 54+ friends and family from throughout the States, South America, and Israel were really impressed with your service and the experience as whole. Also, bonding with them for 4 days and doing those fun group activities like the rock climbing wall race was something that was so special to the experience. Unfortunately, we don't have any more Bar or Bat Mitzvahs to plan but I will certainly highly recommend Mitzvah At Sea to my many friends.

Having gone the traditional Bar Mitzvah route with Adam and now a Mitzvah At Sea with Ashley, I wish we had known about your company prior to Adam's Bar Mitzvah. Evan, Rabbi Rosen did a wonderful job in preparing Ashley for her Bat Mitzvah. Richard and I couldn't believe how well she read her torah and haftorah. The setting on the beach in Cozumel was great and our friends and family had a great time at the resort. In fact, everyone said how good you and Deborah were to them throughout and even before the cruise. Everyone truly had a great time and are still talking about Ashley's Bat Mitzvah even though it was a few months ago. Now we need to make a decision about Andi's Bat Mitzvah. We know for sure it will be a with you but we are considering Alaska or perhaps the new arrangement you have with Club Med. We will chat soon. But thank you so much for making Ashley's Bat Mitzvah an experience we will always cherish! You guys rock!

To Evan and Mitzvah At Sea,
I wanted to send you a quick note to thank you for your support of Royal Caribbean. It has been great to see the number of groups grow over the years. But what has also been great is seeing how happy the people are who are a part of a Mitzvah At Sea. You guys are really experienced, professional, and know what you are doing. The feedback from the ship and my colleagues in Miami is that you guys pay very close attention to detail and your customer service. As you know, Royal Caribbean delivers the WOW and when it comes to Bar or Bat Mitzvah groups, you guys certainly help RCCL exceed the WOW! We look forward to expanding our relationship. As you know, if you need anything, just pick up the phone and call.
BDM, Royal Caribbean
Evan and Marissa,
Words cannot express how thankful we are to have done a Mitzvah at Sea for Sabrina. You and your team exceeded our expectations not just on the cruise, but throughout everything! Sabrina felt confident and it was amazing to see how relaxed she was and how much she enjoyed her Bat Mitzvah. Sabrina smiled from cheek to cheek throughout the weekend. Her Bat Mitzvah service on CocoCay was better than we envisioned and having an informal Havdalah service on the deck before the party added a nice touch to a fabulous weekend. Joshua has already started talking about his Bar Mitzvah cruise. Even though we are three years away, it will be here before we know it. Thanks again for the beautiful experience.

Dear Evan and Rabbi Westman,
I can't believe my Bar Mitzvah is done. But the cool thing is that I have these amazing memories. It was really awesome having the relaxed bar mitzvah service I had on the beach. It was just what I wanted... to be with my family and 10 friends. The beach Olympics was really fun and we all had a great time. My Jewish friends were really jealous of my Bar Mitzvah and they wish they could have done it my way. Thanks again for teaching me my Hebrew part and for making this the best Bar Mitzvah ever!
I want to express my deepest thanks for making Jordan's bat mitzvah experience both simple and spectacular. Your attention to detail was impeccable and more so, appreciated. Rabbi Westman was also a tremendous asset to the experience and added warmth and spirituality to one of the milestones of Jordan's life. We, too, hope that relationship continues. I hope to keep in contact and please tell me how I can obtain the video and photos from Jason and David. Their professionalism was also truly appreciated and wish them well. We can't wait to relive the experience throughout our lifetime and at any time the opportunity presents itself, we would be happy to recommend Bat Mitzvah at Sea.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
We are enjoying our memories from an absolutely incredible experience celebrating Ava's Bat Mitzvah!!!! Thank you all again for everything, it was just perfect.
