Carnvial Destiny- Key West Hyatt Bride

Recommended Posts

Hello! I am getting Married on March 18th, 2011 at the Key West Hyatt while in port. The ship is only in port from 7:30am-2:00pm. Our ceremony is at the Hyatt at 10:00 and our reception is 10:30-12:30. Has anyone else done thishuh.gif

My fiance, parents & I live in South Florida and are leaving this Thursday to go down to Key West and check out everything. Any tips or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!!!! :- )

I will definitely let you know. Right now, I am going back and forth with a coordinator, but haven't booked anything yet. But yea, I will post as much info as I can.

The Hyatt is beautiful, but we decided to book our own wedding in KW and have the reception back on board. It worked out much cheaper for us-we have more than 50 and the contract Carnival has with the Hyatt required us to have a reception at the Hyatt at a much greater cost. Good luck with your planning, I have lots of info and Carnival documents/upgrades, if you have any questions, let me know:)

I was deciding between the Hyatt and Ocean Key Resort. We're getting married while sailing on Carnival Destiny in November. We decied on Ocean Key because it's a little closer for guests to walk to the ceremony. Plus we decided not to book anything through the cruise to cut the cost. Are you doing the reception outside? The Hyatt is great because the wedding planners are provided, I don't have that at Ocean Key! I have some info on transportation and other things if you have any questions.

I actually live in south florida and my fiance and parents went down to the Hyatt this past Friday.

IT WAS BEAUTIFUL. I feel in absolute love with it. I took pictures if anyone would want any I can forward them to you in an email.

It is

leslitroy127@hotmail.com

just email me and say "Hyatt Pictures" in the heading so I know it isnt a virus :-)

Also, I took pics of the beach, reception room, balcony of reception room and outside photos.

It really is beautiful. We signed a catering contract and are all set!!! I am also having a steel drum player perform the ceremony music. The Hyatt recommended a guy that plays there often.

Lesli- my e-mail is nevahusko@aol.com. I would love to see the pictures if you don't mind. I'm also looking into doing the ceremony through Carnival at the Hyatt.

 

My only issue is photography. I want to see a portfolio or something to get an idea of the work of the photographer. I called A Wedding for You and they refused to give me the name of the photographer or company, but she let slip that "Lona" does an excellent job. After some searching, I found that there's a Lona at Blueye Images.... Do you know if that's who works with them?

    • 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!!
