Weddings, Commitment Ceremonies and Renewal of Vows

Where in the world would you most love to declare your love and commitment to each other? Because, the true magic of a P&O Cruises Ceremony at Sea is that it can be pretty well wherever you dream of.

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, where Commitment Ceremonies are available.

The days before

You want to feel special during every day of your wedding cruise, not just on the day itself. So, a bottle of Champagne and flowers will be waiting in your cabin to celebrate the start of your special cruise. You can treat yourself to all sorts of indulgences on board in the days leading up to your wedding, too. (Read on to discover what delights await in the spa and salon as you count down to your big day...) Then, when it 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 from the ceremony to the reception either. 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, so we provide the heart of this within the package and let you add the extras that make the day truly yours; from bouquets to buttonholes and cakes to photography.

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. However, 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 Cruise Expert when you book. Then, it’s all in the detail on the day - talk through every tiny aspect with your Wedding Coordinator once you’re on board.

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.

Commitment Ceremonies

Enjoy the same ceremony, special touches, and attention to detail as a Wedding at Sea. The only difference is that a Commitment Ceremony isn’t legally binding. So if you’re planning a small wedding at home this is the perfect way to celebrate at sea. And the team on board will ensure the day is exactly as you dream it will be. Commitment Ceremonies are available on every ship in our fleet and to help plan your day, use the Weddings At Sea details on the previous pages as your guide. The only thing to note is that Commitment Ceremonies differ in price - see below for full package information.
