Getting married onboard a cruise ship is a fantastic wedding option for couples, no matter whether it be a small and intimate gathering or a more lavish experience there is something to suit every taste and budget.
Whether you prefer a wedding onboard ship or on shore at an exotic destination, there will be a wedding package to suit, from the simplest of cermonies to the outrageously lavish!
Not only is a cruise ship wedding an opportunity to be unique and stand out from the crowd but it is sure to be a memorable experience for everyone involved as on most cruise ships it will be the captain who performs the ceremony.
The flexibility to choose your wedding location is one of the major benefits of a Cruise ship wedding. Whether you choose to exchange your vows on top of glaciers in Alaska or under the canopy of a swaying palm tree on a tropical beach; the opportunities are endless.
The onboard packages also take the stress out of the planning as everything is included from the bridal bouquet to the wedding cake and even the buttonholes. What's more you will have an experienced wedding coordinator to assist you along every step of the way. They will be responsible for arranging the photographer, cake, flowers, music etc allowing you to relax in the knowledge that this is all taken care of.
Cruise ship weddings also allow for flexible budgeting – there are almost always different levels of wedding packages allowing you to choose which is best for you and fits within your budget. Most cruise lines will permit you to prebook additional services such as spa wedding packages allowing you to be pampered as part of your big day preparation!
Whether you choose to have a cocktail reception or a more formal sit-down luncheon most cruise lines will accommodate your needs, often holding this in one of the speciality restaurants set up exclusively for your wedding party.
Another benefit of a cruise ship wedding is the option to combine your wedding and Honeymoon in one itinerary! Honeymoons are an extra expense on a wedding at home, this way you can combine both making it ideal for those on a more limited budget.
