Has anyone gotten married on Carnival Cruise line???
My fiance and I have booked our wedding aboard the Carnival Inspiration ship and are curious to know if anyone else can tell us about their experience with Carnival weddings. So far everything has been GREAT.

agree with Vanessa... but the ship is so big you do your own thing, plus when u get on shore, you ditch the rest. Also everyone doesn't have to go on the cruise, they do the wedding and whoever isn't going on the cruise needs to leave after the reception.

Call us crazy but we love the thought of everyone on the cruise!! We're thinking of it as a 5 day reception! We invited a 100 people and so far around 43 are cruising!! After so many people decided to cruise though we will go on another honeymoon a little after the wedding. Plus, the ship is so big!! And we still have our own room. :)

Actually you can get married while the ship is still in the embarkation port. Then your guests will leave the ship before it takes off. This way you would have a more private honeymoon...

We are currently planning our wedding during our Carnival Cruise, we have 20-30 guests joining us for a beach wedding and cruise! I'm really excited and can't wait. Working out the little details though, is nerve racking!

Thanks!!

Shauna- Since the guests have the choice to either go on the cruise or leave after the reception.. they pay for their own cruise.

We went on a cruise with 2 other couples. We saw them occasionally but not all the time. We chose different excursions at most every port too. We met up with them sometimes for dinner, and for a couple of the shows that were on the boat. I seemed to see some of the other cruisers more often that the couples we were with. I thought about doing a cruise wedding :)

We are changing our wedding venue and booking a cruise wedding!


We started wedding planning a year ago this week and even though it took us 7 months to find a venue, it just really wasn't 'us'. We fell in love with cruising on our very first trip and after the second cruise it became our favorite way to travel.


Last weekend we realized that this is far more 'us' than anything else we could put together, plus the fact that we'd be saving about $7,000 AND getting a 7 day vacation also helped!


So after some online research we are going with NCL's Jewel. We are also going with a ship board wedding so that non-sailing guest may also attend. So now with this change comes a change in our original date as well. So our May 14, 2011 has now become July 30, 2011 and give us even more time to save.


We would love to cruise with a group because you can have more fun AND when you need your private moments, get that too.


We will be booking by the end of the week!

Oh and cruisecritic.com is the best forum for cruise weddings/honeymoons and just cruising in general. There are some knowledgable cruisers there and you can find everything there is to know about cruising.

Another site for cruise wedding discussion is http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/forum/list/122 it's quieter than cruise critics but there are a few interesting post about having a cruise wedding. Also, the site is active with other destination brides.

as Ty W. said you can get married while at port... but change that can to will... they cannot and will not marry you at sea. b/c this leaves legal issues at to where you were really married (what i remember from when my mom got married 3 yrs ago)... You get to board first before all others, just be organized. We were running around crazy needing to be at the altar by a certain time, and my step dads tux ended up in my room... very entertaining day tho. back to your guests... if they aren't cruising with you they leave ship and you get to take off without them. If I had to plan all over again I would do a cruise wedding.

We went to book today and our TA was out for the rest of the week. My ballon deflated..... lol

At any rate, I really think it's about making it 'your' day as a couple, and even if something goes wrong it will be a story to tell as part of your 'unique' wedding!

Word of advice it is always best to book drectly with the company because they are open 24hrs to answer any questions you may have and because ultimately the rates are the same.so why go through a 3rd party!!!???
