Las Caletas Couples ~ POST HERE!!! (**All LC Brides...PLEASE READ 1st post, red text)

Recommended Posts

Michele! Thank you so much... that is so helpful!! Was it not an option to have the fire dancers come to your reception because of the time constraints?? I might end up doing the same thing. Who is your photographer?

 

THanks again! You're almost there!!

Michele!

 

Thank you so much for the information! I am so excited you are leaving in two weeks!! You could be starting a trend here! I can't wait to see how everything works out! Your review will help Jamie + Brandon and Jason and I so much! :)

 

I have a few questions for you, like Jaime I would love to know who your photographer is (I'm in the Seal Beach area so your photographer is probably local to me too), and it would be great to book him, since he will know what he is doing! Is he going to take pictures the whole 7 days?? On the ship, wedding, and excursions?? That would be so amazing!

 

How did you go about booking that restaurant on the cruise ship for your activities? Did a travel agent do it? Did you call the actual cruise ship and request it?

 

I have been asking Jaime about excursions... are you doing any in Cabo or Matazlan? Are you going to tell your guests so you all can do them together? Or are you doing them in secret (kind of like a honeymoon) or are you just hanging out on the boat?

 

Have you talked to the cruise ship about carrying on extra bags or items (like your glass vases or cake topper)? Do they have a bag limit? I've been on 2 cruises but I am totally spacing the luggage requirements.

 

Sorry for all the questions! You are going to be a God-send!

 

Congrats on your upcoming wedding!

 

I'm so excited for you!

I think you can do the fire dancers, I'm just not sure if you can do the fire dancer and do the show(We are a little restricted on time). The show was free (which I think it's 95.00 pp through the cruise line) for us to attend. I've heard it's an amazing show so I figured it would be a great way to end the evening. I bought those glow stick necklaces and bracets for all of my guests to wear to the show so our group can keep tract of each other. (Not that I will be hard to find....I'll be the one in a wedding dress.)

I'll see if my Photographer want to do another wedding or two.

Hi Rachelle;

I'll try and answer all your questions here.

My photograper is local here in Lake Havasu City, Az. But hey, He might be up for another cruise or two. Yes he will be taking pictures of the entire week, I'll have everything from boarding the ship, the dinners and shows, kareoke bars, Excursions , wedding, matzalan and cabo etc. I'll see if he would be interested in doing it again and pass along his number.

The restrurant is easy to book. I did it through the carnival web site. I'm not sure where exactly it was, I just clicked around until I found gourmet dining and there is a link to make reservations. It actually sends an e-mail to the restrurant with your request. I requested a party of 32 for a certain date. They wrote back the next day and said they could accomodate us at 6:00 PM and please come by earlier in the week to look over seating arrangements.

I haven't planed any excursions, been too busy with the other stuff. I might just hang on the boat and relax.

The cruise line suggest 2 fifty lbs bags per person. I'm bringing about 8 bags! I'll just bring tip money for the porters. It's really no big deal. I figured I got them 32 passangers They made approx 25,000 in bookings) they better not complain about extra luggage for a wedding party.(I'm sure they wont.)

Got to go,

Michele

Michele -

 

You leave tomorrow!!! :) You are probably so excited and probably on your way to Long Beach now!!! You probably won't read this before you leave, but good luck and congratulations!!! You are going to have such an amazing time!! If you have time, or maybe one of your bridesmaids or family has time, maybe they could take a few pictures of the ceremony site and the reception site before people get their, showing the way the tables are set up, the centerpieces etc, and maybe the house you get ready in, the bar, the lights, the decorations etc. I know hundreds of girls have posted amazing photos on here but it would be so awesome to see more pictures of the actual location!! I hope you have a great time and I can't wait to read your review and see your pictures!! Congratulations again!!!

    • 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.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
