System Overload..(Trying) To plan a cruise wedding

Recommended Posts

I'm from Pittsburgh, Pa.I have been engages since January of 2009. My fiance popped the question when we were on a new years cruise. I JUST changed my plans about 3 weeks ago to have a cruise wedding...It's been such a headache.. I can't find any good information on cruise weddings. Im a visual person so I really wish the cruise lines could have like a wedding recorded or something just so I can see how it all plays out. Once I get my heart set on a ship, date and location my fiances family shows me a new one that they really like.. going insane.

Congrats and welcome! I hope you find your perfect ship! Make sure it's the one you really love not just because everyone else is pointing it out, good luck and happy planning!

I agree there is not as much info out there on cruise weddings versus other destination weddings. I guess the first decision you should make is whether you would prefer to be married on the ship before it embarks (non-sailing guests can attend) or at one of your ports of call.


We have chosen to get married while at port in St. Thomas and are NOT going through the cruiseline to get married. Instead we have contracted with a local wedding coordinator on the island. There is more info on going this route (or even if you choose to use the cruiseline) over on the Caribbean cruise board or also the cruise critic message boards.


Good luck and let us know if we can help! I've spent countless hours researching a cruise wedding so hopefully I can answer any questions or point you in the right direction.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • 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.
