I am planning a wedding on the Carnival Destiny. Our sail date is Nov 22, 2012 (Thanksgiving) and the wedding ceremony will be 11/23/2012 on Key West and the reception will be a 2 hour reception back on board the ship. I used a wedding planner to plan the ceremony because carnival was not able to plan the wedding ceremony portion due to the number of guests attending. However, I am planning the reception through carnival. I guess my question to you is how thorough was your preparation process once you were on board the ship. I have found it very difficult to work with Carnivals wedding dept because I am always talking to a different perso. I havent been able to find out salon hours, when I will meet with the social host to give them the CD and wedding party information, or just other small detail planning that I would like to take care of. Once you boarded, were you able to work with someone to iron out all of the details? I am just getting a bit nervous. Thanks for any help that you can provide....and CONGRATULATIONS!!! I am so glad that your wedding was amazing!
