What a romantic and exotic way to get married, on a cruise ship! There are so many options. You can get married in port prior to your wedding cruise, or even get married by the captain on the ship while underway to the most romantic honeymoon ever. Or you could invite the whole family and wedding party and get married at one of the ports of call and then you can all enjoy the cruise.
If this is a second marriage with children involved, what a better way to start out as a new family then to enjoy a cruise together. The children can be involved in all the on ship programs and you can have some romantic time alone. Shore excursions can be a way for the new blended family to create memories together on your luxury cruise vacation.
All the best cruise lines like Carnival, Celebrity, Princess, Royal Caribbean and Disney Cruise lines offer wedding planning services. Their expert can provide you with the legal information you need in order to decide if you can have the wedding on board, or need to have it at a port of call or prior to the voyage, and who has the legal rights to perform the actual ceremony. The wedding planner can help you with all the details from the legal papers to the flowers to the food and champagne.
A cruise ship package will include your travel and onshore activities and provide you with information about excursions at the various ports of call. Make sure you book the excursions that you want to participate in when you book your wedding cruise. Pre-registering on line will guarantee that you get to enjoy the excursions you want (and save you a long wait in line on board).
