Cruises and Weddings

by | Mar 2, 2020 | Cruises, General Information | 0 comments

It seems like everyone is doing a Destination Wedding. Nothing’s wrong with that, if you want to have your wedding at a specific place.

One type of Destination Wedding now is on a cruise ship. Sometimes it’s before you leave, and you’re allowed a certain number of people on board with you. Some may cruise with you, some may just be there for the wedding and then leave.

Sometimes you may have a wedding while in international waters. Sometimes it may be on a beach or other location when you’re in a port.

There are all sorts of options. Cruise lines are all about giving you what you want. While there is a price to pay, it isn’t as much as you may think. Some have packages as low as $500.

If you have a lot of people cruising with you, enough to make a group, the cost can be even lower. But you have to decide if you want a bunch of people going with you on your honeymoon. That said, many ships have special areas for suite guests. If you are the only one in your group to get one of these suites, you’ll be able to stay in this area all you want and avoid everyone else. It’s up to you.

Vow renewals is another great option on a cruise ship. Consider the “biggest vow renewal at sea” that took place in February 2019. Not to be outdone, Princess Cruises did the same thing this past February, with Gavin MacLeod (The Love Boat‘s Captain Stubing) officiating the event on the Regal Princess.

Your travel advisor will get in touch with the proper person at the cruise line and in turn the cruise line representative will be in touch with you to make sure it’s what you want.

There’s nothing like a romantic honeymoon at sea after your wedding or vow renewal.

The Disney Magic

The Best Cruise Line

We are often asked which is the best cruise line. Well, it all depends on you. Ok, so you think that's a non-answer. But think about it, not everyone enjoys the same things you do. Some people like tons of active activities like swimming, water slides, basketball,...

Book a Cruise Now? or Wait?

Let me first explain that while I am a Travel Advisor, and I get paid commission for helping you book your cruise (or hotel, or resort stay, or well...), I want you to have the information you need to decide what vacation will be best for you. I don't want you to come...

COVID-19 “Vaccines” and Travel

If you are "vaccinated" or not, there are rules for travel, especially foreign travel. Some countries require a "vaccination" (sometimes with a negative test, sometimes no test is necessary), sometimes they only require a negative test or proof of recovery in a...

Waiting on Passports

If you are in need of renewing your passport, or getting your first, consider doing it soon. Current wait times for a passport that is not expedited, is anywhere from 12 to 18 weeks. Many countries require your passport to be in effect for at least 3-6 months after...

To Cruise or Not to Cruise, That Is the Question

It seems that just when you think you know the rules, everything changes again. If you are like me, you want to get on a cruise ship. I prefer to not cruise in the summer, so I'm not planning to cruise anytime real soon. However, I sometimes wonder when I should...

In Memory of Gavin MacLeod

Will You Be Travelling Soon?

Some of you may want to travel internationally, whether by flying or by cruise. More and more countries are requiring you to have a COVID-19 vaccine. Some won't let you in without a vaccine, but some will allow you in as long as you quarantine upon arrival. Each...
