Cruise brides?

Recommended Posts

Has anyone been married in the Bahamas while being on a cruise? It says you have to be in the country 72 hours before, so I am not sure how this would work. Any advise woudl be great!

Hey girl,

 

This is a huge possibility for me right now, too. You have to be in the Bahamas for 24 hrs before you can apply for a marriage license, but you can get married right after you apply. So, if you got there on Monday morning, you could get married Tuesday evening. Right when you get there, go and establish your residency at the town hall. The next day, you go and apply for your marriage license, and you can get married.

 

The only intinerary I've found so far that allows enough time to do this, is the 4-day carnival sensation stopping in Freeport first, then an overnight in Nassau. You would establish residency while in Freeport, then the next evening when in Nassau, you could get married. If you wanted an morning or afternoon wedding, you could always have it the next day.

Good luck!

Yeah, you have to get a letter from the ship stating the date and time you arrived, to give to the town hall. I don't know if they go by when your ship came in, or when you actually get to the town hall and have it all documented. I'd get my butt down there asap, just in case!

Oh, and the office is only open until 5... a lot of ships get in at 4, so you'd really want to hussle in there!
