Weddings

Wedding cruises have captured the imagination of many brides and grooms and many seek to combine their wedding and honeymoon into one memorable sea-going holiday.

Planning and executing a wedding at sea can be a challenge, especially if you're not aware of the local regulations and marriage licensing requirements of your chosen wedding site. The cruise line's wedding coordinator, will help you plan the wedding of your dreams.

To avoid complicated licensing requirements,we suggest that you marry at home prior to your cruise and plan a symbolic wedding ceremony aboard the ship -- this is the preferred choice of the majority of couples.

All cruise lines require you to make a cruise booking before you can book a wedding package. Cruise lines allow only a limited number of weddings per cruise, so you’ll need to book early.

Weddings at Sea

Celebrity Cruises offer a variety of wedding packages for legal weddings at sea. Your ceremony can be as simple or as elaborate as you like. It will be performed by the ship's captain, followed by a reception that can range from an intimate romantic dinner to a full reception with guests.

Licenses:

You and your future spouse are responsible for obtaining a marriage license, for a fee, from your wedding destination. You also will need to be familiar with the regulations for marrying in that destination. Some places require that you apply for a license in person, while others allow you to submit an application over the phone or through the mail. Licenses can cost anywhere from $25 in Alaska to $150 in Florida. Often, your cruise line wedding coordinator can assist you in obtaining your marriage license (sometimes for a fee), or can provide you with the information needed to apply for one.

Who can attend?

There is very strict security on all ships, and there are restriction on non-sailing guests. The wedding package you purchase through the cruise line will determine the number of guests you can invite to your ceremony and reception. Guests who are paying passengers on the cruise will be allowed to participate in your wedding. Non-sailing guests are generally permitted to come aboard for weddings and receptions, but you will most likely have to provide the cruise line with a lot of personal details on each of these guests. In some ports, particularly foreign ports, you may not be allowed to bring non-sailing guests onboard at all.
