Getting Married And Being All At Sea - Cruise Weddings Overview

May 18, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 106

Let's be honest, organizing a wedding can be a daunting prospect, and amongst one of the most stressful projects one can undertake. We've all seen perfectly demure young dames morphing into horrid Bridezillas due to incompetent florists, disorganised venues or inept travel agencies. Well, we do have the perfect solution to all your wedding-preparation-anxieties.

Organise a cruise wedding and watch how easily, and effortlessly, your big day comes together with barely a stressful moment in sight. Why not leave all the trouble to a capable professional? Cruise liner's wedding co-ordinators do just that! Not only do they look after every single little detail, but they do so efficiently; leaving you with only butterflies in your stomach to deal with.

Cruise weddings are rising in popularity and it's easy to understand why that is. Superlative cruise lines like P&O, Cunard, Princess, Celebrity, Azamara, Carnival, Royal Caribbean and many more, now offer the once-in-a-lifetime chance to tie the knot in beautiful locations the world over. Each has their own 'theme' they specialise in, so whether it be an 'at sea' or 'port' wedding you're after, there's a cruise liner that's just perfect for you.

All cruise wedding packages include the use of a co-ordinator, the ceremony, champagne for toasting, a bouquet (for her), button-hole flower (for him) and invitations for your family and friends. Packages start from as little as USD$800, but the up-limit is almost endless! Add a glorious wedding buffet lunch, on-shore activities for your wedding party and a whole host of other extras.

Now, all you have to do... is pick one!

Here's a rundown of the three most popular cruise wedding services around; all you need to do is make one simple phone call and voila', it's all done.

Princess Cruises

Want a wedding fit for a princess? Then you really can't go past Princess Cruises. These guys offer comprehensive wedding packages for as little as US$1300. And that, my friends, includes everything except the wedding dress! Most Princess liners have an onboard chapel, and this provider can also provide a live link to your friends and family back home. Super cool, super fun and, most importantly, super romantic cruise weddings are Princess' forte.

P&O Cruises

This funky cruise line is an absolute hit with young couples. P&O Cruises offer simple and elegant services starting from under US$1000, and include invitations, ceremony, flowers and champagne. The great attraction here, is that couples can just 'add' whatever services they like; so they need not pay for hair & make up let's say, if the bride wishes to do her own.

Royal Caribbean Cruises

The cruise weddings offered on Royal Caribbean liners are amongst the most varied, with on-shore weddings amongst the most favoured. Tie the knot on a tropical island with your liner as a backdrop, or climb on top of an Alaskan glacier instead. Whatever your preferred setting may be, Caribbean Cruises will certainly find it for you. Surcharges apply for cruise weddings held on public holiday, but this is standard practice, and will only set you back about USD100. A worthwhile expense for a dream cruise wedding!

Getting married on board a luxury cruise ship surely offers no better stage and surroundings, the proceedings are usually undertaken by the ship's captain and if you're lucky you may even be invited to the captain's table for evening dinner! There are 3 main cruise lines who offer cruise wedding; Princess Cruises, P&O Cruises & Royal Caribbean cruises - depending on where you want your wedding & honeymoon to take you will determine which cruise line and itinerary you choose.
