Weddings, Renewal of Vows and Engagements

Whatever your celebration, we have the perfect package for you

Weddings at sea

Getting married on board is a wonderfully unique experience. We’ll make every moment feel special so that you can enjoy a day of love, laughter, and celebration. Should you choose to hold your wedding celebrations with us, Weddings at Sea are available across all our ships with the exception of Britannia & Iona, where non-legal weddings (commitment ceremonies) are available.

The days before

You want to feel special during every day of your wedding cruise. To start the celebrations, Champagne will be waiting in your cabin to welcome you on board. With £200 to spend in the spa, you can treat yourself to all sorts of pampering in the days leading up to your wedding, too. Then, when the big day arrives, our staff will take care of all the little details.

As everything you could possibly want or need is a short stroll from your cabin, you can enjoy your day without any of the usual worries about getting to the ceremony and reception. Even better, your honeymoon can begin from the moment you say ‘I do’.

The main event

Your wedding ceremony should be everything you wish for. Our two packages have all the ingredients of a magical wedding, with personalised extras available to make the day truly yours. Bouquets and buttonholes, cakes and photography – your wedding at sea will have all of the details you desire.

Held in a private venue with the scent of fresh flowers and soft music drifting through the air, your captain will conduct your ceremony. When you sign the register, there’ll be a Champagne toast (the first of many, no doubt).

Your witnesses can be your choice of any two adults aged 18 and over. If your wedding is to be more intimate with just the two of you, two of our ship’s company will be honoured to act as your witnesses.

The finer details

Discuss your planned wedding party size and venue seating with your personal ceremonies advisor when you book. Then, it’s all in the detail on the day - talk through every tiny aspect with your wedding coordinator.

You are welcome to bring your own wedding music or we can provide a traditional selection for you. Or, perhaps you’d like a member of your wedding party to read a piece of poetry or prose during your ceremony? Just let us know. Finally, if you’d like to have commemorative items engraved, we advise doing it when you get back as itinerary changes are possible.
