Prettiest port for RCL cruise?

Recommended Posts

Hi there, I am planning a wedding for 2014 and am looking for wedding location ideas. We are going on a cruise in 2013 to hit up some islands to see which one we like best. I was wondering if anyone had a favorite non-resort spot. We will be going via Royal Caribbean. My top spot is St Lucia and my fiancee would like to see Aruba. We have been to St Thomas, St Kitts and Antigua but we did not do any beach excursions to know if they will make good backdrops for a port wedding. I am hoping you girls can help me find the perfect spot. Thanks in advance! Christy

Hi Christy,


I think you pose a really good question. I have been to the ports that you have mentioned above, however, feel as though they all have a different vibe. I think you really need to ask yourself, what type of wedding are you looking for? I assume you are looking for a beach spot wiht a great backdrop - which they all do.


Do you have a spot that really means a lot to you? It sounds like St. Lucia and Aruba would be your top areas? I would suggest to start researching resorts and past weddings in those 2 areas. Start a list of pros and cons which will help sort your ideas.


Just my personal opinion, Aruba definitely seems more family friendly with a lot of activities that are geared for all ages. St. Lucia definitely gives me a more adult vibe. Both are absolutely beautiful!


Good luck! Wish you all the best!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
