Has anyone gotten married on a Carnival cruise before? I'm planning my wedding on Carnival Victory in October 2013. My husband and I were married in 2008 at the courthouse. I always wanted to have a dream wedding so five years later we will renew our vows on the cruise. We are very excited for the cruise and the wedding. Tis will be our second cruise but first time for kids who or too excited! Any advice is more than welcomed!!
You really should talk with an agent and have them provide all the information and make all the arrangements for you. Alot of things can go wrong, plus there's no reason you should be putting yourself through all the hassle and stress. Let them do the work for you so you can relax and enjoy the experience.
Keep in mind that Carnival only allows weddings to take place in certain ports, whereas other cruise lines provide weddings at sea. (Something to think about as another option.)
But weddings onboard a cruise are wonderful!! No matter what you decide, I know you'll have an awesome celebration and congratulations!!
