I am a cruise bride as well. As soon as I chose our cruise and made a group booking to reserve some cabins for our guests, I sent an e-mail out to everyone with all of the details. I didn't do a STD as I didn't feel the need. Most of our gusts booked within the a month of us having reserved the space on the ship. Our wedding is Jan 12th, 2010 and I intend on mailing out our invites in Aug/Sept of this year.
I think normal for a wedding, you would mail them out 3 months in advance (from what I understand), but given the cruise requires a lot more money and advanced planning on behalf of the guests, we opted for 5-6 months.
I hope this helps!

We just managed to book our hotel today yet our wedding date is March 2011. We are sending out save the dates in a few weeks to give our guests LOADS of time to save. We did not think we were going to be able to book until next year and were still planning to send the STD's now without an actual date on it. Wording along the lines of '...plan to get married March 2011...Date, formal invitations & travel arrangements to follow'. Then we will send the formal invitations 10-11 months before again just to give plenty of notice! I reckon if you know which month you want & which year then send STD's asap with only this info. If it changes you can put it on the formals.
