Group cruise activities besides the wedding?

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

We are getting married on day 2 of a 5 day cruise, but feel like I should have something planned for the last day. Is anyone else planning a cocktail party or activity for any other day of the cruise?

 

I was thinking to slide thank you postcards under our guests doors on the last night of the cruise and ask them to join us for a "farewell" breakfast on the finally morning if they would like (more letting them know where we will be if they want to come).

 

Any other ideas? We live overseas, so this will be the last time we see most of them for months to a year.

 

Thanks,

Carla

We're getting married on the first day, but my fiance's birthday (and his best friend's, if he goes) is on the next to last sea day (it's an 8 day cruise) so we're thinking of inviting everyone to go to the supper club that night for dinner.

Carla,

 

One of my guest gave me a great idea today, maybe have a theam party at the club one of the nights...disco night, toga night, latin night....something to that effect.

We purposely didn't schedule any group activities besides a welcome cocktail party and then our wedding day activities. We emphasized this was a vacation for our guests and didn't want to compromise their time anymore than for our wedding day. People came together and did things as a group but at least it was still their vacation and up to them how they spent their time.

Carla, if you already have the tacky 80's sunglasses in the bag you could just attach a cute little card to them with ribbon that says "Farewell party 80's style on Saturday night." Or something to that effect. That'd be fun!

I would like for whomever goes on the cruise to spend at least one day at a beach together...I'm calling it a wedding celebration.

 

I may take Carla's suggestion of doing a farewell breakfast and putting thank you cards under everyone's door.

I wanted to do a cocktail party on the 2nd day of the cruise since our wedding is on the 3rd day of an 8 day cruise. However the cocktail parties were booked so now we aren't really doing anything.

 

I love the idea of the farewell breakfast but I think I'd do it the day before the last day bc it's a sea day and the last day ppl will be busy with disembarking lol.

 

On my website (the attractions page if u wanna check it out) I did ask ppl if they want to do any shore excursions together. Also my family knows this great restaurant in Nassau. So what I'm going to eventually do is make a brochure (vista) with the weeks itinerary. It will have all the events for the wedding day (we have the wedding on the beach followed by the reception on the golf course then an island tour) plus any things for the other days such as everyone who's interested meet us at the rest in Nassua for dinner, farewell breakfast, bachelor and bachelorette parties in San Juan and maybe the one shore excursion if ppl seem interested.

 

Like someone said we want this to be a vacay for everyone so we don't want too much stuff booked/planned for them. But I also have a few friends that are coming alone so I want them to feel involved.
