    Jamaica during Western Caribbean Cruise
  1. @@laurenlou21 I got married in Jamaica during a cruise. I worked with a planner on the island instead of working with the cruise line. I had read so many reviews saying that the cruise line doesn't do much of the planning until the last minute and I didn't like that idea. Let me know if you have any other questions about a cruise wedding.
  2. @@Kkaring Since you have a travel agent, you should ask them about the tour conductor credits (TCC). The travel agents are not required to give you these credits, but you can negotiate with them to get more money towards your cruise/guests. Each cruise has a value as far as TCC goes and those can be converted to money or gifts. These are on top of the money you earn for the group booking. Our guests had a little bit of time to explore the shops in the port when we got back after the wedding, but they did not get to see Jamaica (other than the drive from the port to our location, which
  3. @@Kkaring We had a total of 24 people, including us. If I remember correctly, we had 14 cabins. That is great if you already have 30 rooms booked! Indy is a wonderful ship. My husband and I had been on it before our wedding cruise. Are you using a travel agent? You have a group booking, right? There is a group coordinator onboard that you could probably ask to help you coordinate some of these things, but you wouldn't be able to do that until you get on the ship. We had a group booking, but we didn't work with the group coordinator since we utilized the concierge instead. Giova
  4. @@Kkaring Which ship will you be on? What kind of room do you have booked? How many guests/rooms are you expecting on the cruise? If you have a group booking, you will earn money for every 16 guests. We earned enough money to pay for everyone's dinner in Giovanni's (Italian Specialty Restaurant). We had the Royal Suite, therefore we had a concierge who helped us once we were on the ship. The negative was that some planning couldn't happen until we were onboard. But, the benefit was that it was easy to communicate with her. Since we had a large room, we had our reception in our room
  5. @@Kkaring I got married while in port in Falmouth during a Royal Caribbean cruise in April 2016. I had a planning thread, so you can look through that. I think Falmouth is a better option than Labadee because you will have more options. What type of wedding would you want? On the beach, view of the beach/water, waterfall view, etc? What specific questions do you have?
  6. Congratulations on booking a cruise wedding! I had my wedding during a Royal Caribbean cruise while in port in April. Since I didn't do it on embarkation day, I am not sure how much help I will be. The biggest complaint I had read about planning your wedding through the cruise is that you don't work out all the little details until a few months before, so good luck! I know you will have a wedding coordinator meet you at the port and escort you onto the ship. I think they will let you get onboard to start getting ready once all the previous cruisers have gotten off the ship, which has usua
  7. I worked with her for my wedding in April 2016. Everything turned out how I expected. What specific questions do you have?
  8. @@liza I made custom t-shirts on customink.com that came out really nice. I am not sure if you can put a photo on it though. The fewer colors you use on the shirt, the cheaper.
  9. @@Johnsonspartyof2 We did a wedding website will all the booking details and such. But, as it got closer to the wedding and we wanted to make announcements/updates, we created a Facebook page. It was also an opportunity for our guests to start to get to know each other. It worked out really well! For the few who were not only Facebook, we emailed or texted them the info.
  10. @@AliciaW I think it would be best to put the prices on the website. People will want to know the price before they put down a deposit. There is no reason to require them to contact the travel agent when you have all the info and could post it.
  11. @GrahamCrackerLackin- Welcome to the boards! I got married in Jamaica during a cruise on Royal Caribbean in April 2016. There is definitely pros and cons to a cruise wedding, but we would do it again without hesitation! There is still a lot of planning and work that goes into a cruise wedding. We did the ceremony in Jamaica and used a Jamaican wedding coordinator. I was happy with this decision because it allowed me to work with her to plan the ceremony for the year prior. This is compared to working with a random person in the wedding department of the cruise line prior to the cruise and
