Selecting a cruise line for your wedding can seem like a daunting experience. should you get married at sea, or should you get married shoreside so most of your family and friends can attend?
Before you read what each cruise line has to offer, you should know the following
- If you anticipate sailing with a group of family members and friends, make sure to get Group Cruise Rates. Doing so will not only lower your cruise price, but it will provide additional benefits such as a free banquet room, group dining privileges, and a welcome reception.
- Most cruise ships will help with the marriage license. There is a fee associated with it though
- You can customize many of the wedding packages to your liking
- We would recommend that the wedding party arrive at least a day before departure and stay at a nearby hotel. Doing so will help you avoid any flight delays or cancellations.
- Book your package early since most cruise ships are limited to how many ceremonies can be coordinated on each ship.
- For wedding occurring on the same day as the departure, make sure to use carry-ons for the following items – Wedding dress, tuxedo, shoes, jewelry, and anything else you need to get ready for the wedding. Your regular luggage will not arrive to your stateroom will after the ship has already sailed.
