Bookings, logistics and FAQs

Decided on the ship and holiday you want for your celebrations? Great news!

Next steps

Please contact our Ceremonies team to make sure your chosen date and holiday are available. If you’re still not sure which ship or holiday is best for you then don’t worry, our coordinators will be happy to help you make the right decision. The great thing about our coordinators is that they can take care of booking not only your event but your honeymoon too, making the experience as stress free as possible.

Once your chosen trip, ceremony date and time have been confirmed, we’ll ask you for a 25% deposit to secure the booking. To make sure you get the day you want, we ask for a minimum of three months’ notice to organise a Wedding at Sea and two weeks’ notice for a Renewal of Vows.

Wedding party benefits

There are lots of lovely perks to getting married at sea with P&O Cruises, making your whole party’s holiday fantastic. These include on-board spending money for the wedding couple as well as each couple within the wedding party; up to three complimentary cabins for your wedding party**; and an additional 5kg luggage allowance each for the wedding couple if travelling on a P&O Cruises fly-cruise holiday.

**Every 1 in 20 cabins free.

Your countdown to the big day

So that we know exactly what you want, we’ll send you a ceremony planning form four months prior to your date. This is where you can let us know all the optional extras you’ve chosen (you can find out more about everything that’s available on our packages page here). If you book your ceremony later than the four-month mark, we'll get your form sent over right away. From there, your wedding coordinators will work their magic and make your dreams a reality.

Embarkation day

The day of your cruise has finally arrived! Once you get on board, your ceremony coordinator will arrange to meet with you to go over the details of your ceremony plan and make sure everything runs smoothly.
