Hello, My fiance and I just booked our wedding Cruise on the Carnival Valor in April 2012 leaving from Miami Florida. Ports of call will be Key West FL,, Georgetown Grand Cayman, Ocho Rios Jamaica. A six day cruise.
Here is what we are having a hard time deciding. We want to have a beach wedding which is why we choose a cruise for our destination wedding. We have a group of about 20 people coming with us. And now picking the wedding package has been a hard decision.
My travel agent keeps pointing out that if we do an on ship wedding package with Carnival we can have up to I think 20 people attend with this package and then do a pp charge for the ppl over the limit. And the reception will be included.
Which may be a better choice than Carnival Beach ceremony which only covers the bride and groom. But our whole reason for doing this is a beach wedding.
Anyone have any ideas or any vendors you have used in Key West or Grand Cayman outside of Carnival to do your wedding? I have found a few but have not had a chance to talk on the phone with any of them. Now my TA is worrying me because she says booking outside of Carnival runs the risk of "no guarantte" on the ceremony. Has anyone herd of the carnival not stopping at key west or grand cayman?
And then I have the recpetion...where beach? ship? So many questions. Open to any all suggestions please!
Thank you from an overwhelmed and very anxious bride to be!
