Carnival Mexican Riveria Cruise & Cabo Wedding!

Recommended Posts

Hey We aren't doing the wedding on a cruise but we want to go on a cruise for the honeymoon after we get married in the riviera maya. Which company are you going with? I would be interested in others' experiences as well...

I've been on Carnival twice and Royal Caribbean once. It really depends on the ship. The first Carnvial cruise was on an older ship with not much to do. It was your most basic and inexpensive cruise. The second Carnival cruise was on a newer ship and a lot more fun! There was way more to do on board and the food was better. Our third cruise (for our wedding) was on Royal Caribbean's biggest ship Freedom of the Seas. We had a blast! I would sail Royal again before Carnival. The food on Royal was so much better, way more activities and things to do, and the ship was gorgeous!

Hi Ladies!

 

We'll be getting married then cruising on Carnival Splendor to the Mexican Riviera. It wasn't our first choice (Carib) but we knew we would have to adjust our wants for our guests, since it was important for us to have our friends and family there with us. I have amassed quite a wealth of info since our engagement (2 years!).

 

Good Luck and happy planning to you all!

Holstang... are you getting married on the cruise ship before it departs? do you live in Long Beach? I go to school in LB! I'm doing the Carnival Splendor cruise also but getting married while in port in Puerto Vallarta.

Hi everyone! It's been a while since I posted. I took a break away from wedding planning for a few months because my mom passed away. We have now realized that its time to start the planning again. We were alittle discouraged because Princess had stopped offering the cruise we wanted to go on but the good news is that they have brought it back for 2011 so we are happy that we can go where we originally wanted to and not settle for something else. The even better news is that they added another day and port to the itinerary so we will going on the 12 day cruise to the Mexican Riveria and we will be getting married at sea. While they released the itinerary, they haven't released the bookings yet so we have a few more weeks before we can actually book it but I am just so excited again! Oh, we will be going by ourselves unless my best friend and my sister decide that they can afford to come. Either way, I am ok with it....after the last 6 months being so horrible, we want (and need!) a stress-free wedding/honeymoon and with having little planning to do with the wedding ceremony part, this is the way to go for us. We are still planning to do the TTD photos in Cabo so we need to start looking into that---I don't know how hard it is going to be to find a photographer to do this while we are in port. So....how is everyone's planning going? Well...talk to you all soon!

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
