    My fiance and I just LOVE taking cruises. Our last cruise was on the Carnival Glory less than a month ago and that will always be a vacation to remember. We got engaged in Belize and continued celebrating for the remainder of the trip!! I never wanted a "traditional" wedding so we both agreed that it would only be natural for us to do a cruise/destination wedding.

    Only in the early stages and haven't made any final decisions yet so we are open to ideas. We live in NY and for convenience purposes, we were able to narrow it down to a cruise leaving from NY at the end of April 2011. St Thomas would be the only island on our itinerary which would allow for a ceremony. My question is do we do everything directly through Carnival Wedding staff which seems to be pricey for the little that they offer, look for a wedding coordinator in St Thomas or deal with a travel agent in my area?

        Congratulations! I actually initially planned on a cruise from NY as well. But we changed to a DW. I worked with Karen who was awesome and she is a coordinator specifically for Carnival cruises. I definitely think you should speak with her. She's very sweet and usually got back to me very quickly.

        Good luck!
