Casino Entertainment Industries – FantaSea Yachts Vendor Spotlight of the Week

Who needs to go to Vegas when you can bring Vegas to you?

FantaSea Yacht’s vendor spotlight of the week is Casino Entertainment Industries, the premiere casino company we work with. CEI provides knowledgeable and professional gaming dealers, high quality tables and…we can’t forget… the casino chips and play money!

In 1996 Casino Entertainment Industries started their business out of their home and has since grown into one of Southern California’s largest casino companies. CEI now has more than 2,000 square feet of warehouse space, over 150 casino tables and 200 experienced game dealers. From black jack to poker to roulette to craps – there’s not a game they don’t have.

For more than 10 years Casino Entertainment has worked with FantaSea Yachts and has contributed to the success of hundreds of celebrations. Just this past December CEI was hired for several of our corporate holiday parties, in all of our venues Dandeana, RegentSea, FantaSea One and our land-based waterfront Yacht Club.

Whether you’re planning a corporate event, birthday party, bar/bat mitzvah, fundraiser, college sorority/fraternity event, Casino Entertainment is sure to add to the excitement…and the best part is…unlike Vegas….you still walk away with the money that was in your wallet when you sat down!!

We at FantaSea send a big Thank You to Casino Entertainment Industries for adding to the success of so many of our events, and we look forward to many more!

DIY Bat Mitzvah

Posted January 13, 2012 by Fantasea Yachts Team

As we think back to the last year, we wanted to give special attention to Ali, one of our Bat Mitzvahs and her mother Elaine. Allison was an incredibly delightful young lady we had the honor of working with. John Williams-Jacob, their event planner recalls fondly the many meetings that left him wanting more of her energy and commitment to the DIY world for her FantaSea Yacht Club Bat Mitzvah. Elaine gave full credit to Ali for the vision, walking to each store, asking clerks and taking the time to fulfill her DIY dreams with hard work. We wanted to share some of her great ideas and photos of her finished centerpieces.

Vendor Spotlight – Andrew Zinn

Andrew Zinn – FantaSea Event Manager & Professional Photographer

Zinn Photography

On April 22, 1998 we received a resume from Andrew Zinn responding to our Event Manager opening and he has been a part of the FantaSea Family ever since.

In Andrews’ 10+ years with FantaSea we have watched him oversee many an event on a large scale, he is primarily scheduled aboard events on the FantaSea One, due to the extensive staff and managerial production required.  We’ve been honored to witness his wedding reception held aboard our Luxury Yacht RegentSea – have two beautiful children and transition from Event Manager to Professional Photographer and Event Manager Extraordinaire.

Andrew has an eye for excellence and his photos – whether a family portrait or a yacht wedding – he will capture every emotion you are feeling at that moment.

Fortunate for all who use his services, he truly has the experience aboard yachts to capture breath taking sunset moments and stolen kisses.  He is not just a photographer; he is an artist whose energy and motivation is contagious.

This trait was most apparent to us over the years watching the attention to detail for thousands of events that ran under the direction of Andrew as the Event Manager.

In which ever capacity you have the opportunity, you are sure to experience the best of customer service and polish with a young energy and experienced talent.
