Finally booked! Carnival Destiny 2010

Recommended Posts

After comparing what felt like 20 different cruise options, we booked our cruise on the Carnival Destiny for Nov 11, 2010! We ended up using destinationweddings.com, which so far has been great. I'd definitely recommend them to anyone. They are very fast with replying to your emails and try to find the best deals with what you're looking for in a trip. It was a little overwhelming at first since there are so many options, but they take care of all of the difficult stuff. I feel relieved with setting up the initial deposits and room blocks for our guests, but now we have to wait for everyone to make their deposits to fully book the room. Did anyone have issues with making sure all of their guests were booked on time? I feel like we can't finish the rest of the planning until the final bookings are done. So far we really like Key West as a wedding location over Cozumel, but still in the beginning stages of that planning.

Yay another Destiny bride!!! I thinking waiting to see who is actually going to book and come is the hardest part of a destination wedding but you will learn most of the guest list now and there will be a few who dont end up coming and others who surprise you and book later.

Destiny Bride here as well!

If you are still deciding on the port, here are my 2 cents.

For you it is probably easier to get married in Key West if you do the legal part there. Mexico requires blood tests and such, so in a one day port only it is almost impossible to do it all and have it be legal!

good luck in all the planning.

Yay, congrats!! I love hearing from other Destiny Brides, we're starting quite a collection! I'm worried about making sure our guests make their final deposits on time too... I'm trying to come up with some way to keep them reminded. I'm getting married June 28, 2010 and I sent out STDs in late July. The 2nd deposit is due in February and final payment in April. I'm thinking of putting together little post cards to send out a month or so before each payment date just as a reminder to our guests. Of course, I'm sure there's always going to be a few guests who won't remember no matter what I do! :-)

Hello Destiny Brides!

 

I got engaged on Carnival Destiny on Nov. 28th so I got sooooooooo excited when I found this thread! My fiance mentioned maybe having our wedding on the Destiny but we're not sure exactly how that works. So for now (unless we change our minds) it maybe in DR. Does anyone know how a cruise wedding work? All you thoughts & comments are greatly appreciated.

 

Be Well!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
