Nautical Nuptials on a Luxury Cruise

Create an unforgettable event for your family and friends aboard a luxury cruise for the ultimate stress-free, all-inclusive wedding. Take advantage of a cruise ship’s grand onboard spaces, impeccable service and gourmet cuisine to design a dream wedding that also allows you to spend several days traveling with your favorite people. Cruise wedding packages typically come with a pre-event coordinator as well as dedicated onboard staff who will carry out your plans, handle the paperwork and make your commitment ceremony extraordinary. Find out what your options are for a wedding on the high seas.
Have your ceremony on a luxury cruise ship

Ceremonies at Sea

Walk down the aisle in the fresh sea air, surrounded by stunning views of open water, to join your intended at the altar, where the ship's captain will officiate your ceremony. Weddings on board a luxury ocean liner give you so many options. Select from several packages that include elegant flowers, a decadent cake, food and beverages, musical accompaniment and professional photography that might just cost less than a conventional ceremony. Cruising gives you something new every day that you can share with your friends and relatives, from upscale dining, wine tastings and group bonding activities to award-winning shows and lively entertainment. Contact our agency to walk you through every wonderful possibility.

Exotic Locales

If you’ve dreamed of a romantic destination wedding in a far-flung location like Hawaii, the Caribbean or even Alaska, a cruise can take you there. Travel with your wedding party and guests and hold your ceremony on an idyllic island, breathtaking mountaintop, rocky bluff or scenic frozen glacier. Our agency can help you choose an itinerary that stops in your ideal setting and arrange your onshore marriage before bringing the party back to the ship to continue the festivities! Elevate your day with the heartfelt details and special touches that complete an elegant destination wedding, at a value you’ll love. An on-site cruise coordinator will handle transportation to and from the port venue and top off the occasion with a bottle of chilled bubbly to toast with your new spouse.

Get married in port before you set sail

Another option is to hold the ceremony in the origination port so that you can include a larger number of guests and invite them to experience the grandeur of your chosen ship. Pick your wedding venue from onboard options like an intimate chapel, dramatic ballroom, spectacular restaurant or other private location. If you’re exchanging vows on embarkation day, many cruise lines will allow wedding parties priority boarding to get you and your guests in place before the majority of passengers arrive. Prior to departure, non-sailing guests exit the ship, leaving the happy couple to enjoy their first honeymoon dinner in a specialty restaurant getting the VIP treatment or ordering a delectable room service delivery to the suite.
