Cruise lines make it easy to plan your nautical nuptials, with wedding coordinators yo take you through each step and ready-made packages for purchase. Virtually all packages start with basic components and are custoimizable, with a variety of choises in food and beverages, flowers, photography, video, and more, to personalize your event.
Whether you marry on the ship, harborside, or in port, with just the two of you or with all your loved ones surrounding you, a wedding at sea is most certainly a voyage of romance and love. We offer some top package choices to make the entire process- from proposal to the big day- unforgettable.
Imagine a ceremony on the hills of Tuscany, Italy, a beach in Bali, or a winery in Cape Town, South Africa. Boasting "almost anything is possible just about anywhere, " Crystal Cruises' Crystal Celebrations soiree service pairs the cruise line with premier global event company Imagine VIP. First, you decide on a port on one of the line's two ships- Crystal Symphony or Crystal Serenity.
Everything can be planned a la carte or with a Crystal Ceremonies Ashore package, local wedding venue, local offciant, commemorative wedding certificate, and a wedding coordinator. You then can get to pick from a list of inclusions, such as music, flowers, transportation, announcement/invitations, and shore.

Exchanging vows in the middle of the ocean can be the ultimate way to start your life together. Most cruise lines offer ceremonies at sea, but not all of them are legal — some may be symbolic — so be sure to ask. Princess Cruises was the first line to offer legal marriage ceremonies at sea conducted by the captain, as well as the first wedding chapel at sea, back in 1998.
Princess’s Tie The Knot At Sea wedding package includes the wedding chapel or other onboard location, candlelit ceremony performed by the captain, special vows, prerecorded music, fresh floral arrangements, bridal bouquet and groom’s boutonniere, Champagne and keepsake flutes, photography, a wedding cake, and onboard wedding coordinators.
Alternatives: Other cruise lines that offer legal weddings at sea include Celebrity Cruises, Cunard Line, MSC Cruises (on MSC DivinaCaribbean sailings only) and Royal Caribbean International.
