Any other cruise brides out there?

Recommended Posts

Hmm...I'm not sure if there are other cruise brides right now?

 

Please post your ideas & info if you don't mind/have time. We have cruise sections but they are fairly new...if you build them up I bet more cruise brides will come...haha

 

Happy planning :)

I went to a vow renewal on a RCCL ship - it was AWESOME and I would've done the same thing except my dad is afraid of cruise ships LOL! I'm sure it will be a blast!

I'm a cruise bride. We are getting married on the Mariner of the Seas in Ocho Rios, Jamaica, Oct 22, 2208 in the ship's chapel. How is it going with your wedding planners. The Royal Romance team. They are making me a little crazy.

I was married through NCL's wedding department last may, but didn't get married on the ship. They are actually the same company that works with Royal Caribbean too, they just go by a different name with NCL...don't ask me why, just one of their many quirks I guess. msnwink.gif

 

The planners they have within the company seem to vary WIDELY in competancy. Some have been given rave reviews, others (mine included) don't seem to have as much on the ball. I had to confirm my location three times, and there was still confusion when the final paperwork came through for me to sign. They do seem to pull it all together in time for the wedding though, although that does nothing to alleviate the worries in our heads throughout the planning process. I strongly reccommend keeping printed copies of all emails and correspondance, and bringing it with you the day of the wedding, just in case you need to argue a point. These companies process so many brides at the same time, it's inevitible that some details fall through the cracks...scary, I know!

 

I'm sure everything will work out fine for all you cruise brides!

Just keep firing off emails with your questions and queries, and if that doesn't work, keep making phone calls until someone has to talk to you. They really do try to be helpful once you have them one on one.

I am getting married Jan 2009 - on RC "Grandeur of the Seas" - in the port of Tampa, Fl - we've only just started with some details; as it seems they want the wedding to be right on top of us - before there is too much planning. But so far - so good!!

 

Good Luck ~

I have not done anything but book it. I am trying to get a newsletter together and STD magnets to send out. I need to get alot done now while I have time. I am always extremely busy in the beginning of the year. Plus I am being promoted at the end of the year so I will be crazy busy.

Girls, let me ask since I have toyed with the idea of being a cruise bride since we just got back from RC Freedom of the seas and we loved it... What made you decide? Your guests will be with you all week. That is my only drawback, no "honeymoon". My FI wants us time after the ceremony. What is your game plan for that aspect?

What made us decide was the cost...it was far more affordable for all involved to take the cruise. We got married in Bermuda, rather than in the starting port of Boston, so we weren't faced with having our guests with us for more than two days after the wedding. We then went on a separate honeymoon after we returned.

 

I couldn't be happier with how our wedding turned out (in spite of some communication problems with the coordinator), and I absolutely loved cruising to Bermuda. I've flown there a number of times, but nothing compares to coming upon the island from the sea.

    • Another option is to find an app that allows for group talk. This Wedding Party App looks pretty neat. https://apracticalwedding.com/wedding-party-app/ 
    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
