Carnival Victory Cruise Wedding/Vow Renewal

Recommended Posts

How Our Family Began…

My husband and I started dating in 2002 after meeting on the internet.  We moved in together in 2003 and had our first son in 2004 (and our 2nd son in 2010).  We were very much in love but we didnâ€t get married until 2008 on Valentineâ€s Day.  We didnâ€t have enough money for a wedding, so we went to the courthouse. 

Wedding/Vow Renewal Plans…

Iâ€ve been regretting the decision not having a ceremony ever since.  I think every woman should have her special day, so my husband and I decided to have a wedding/vow renewal ceremony after being married for 5 years.  Although we originally thought being married on Valentineâ€s Day was a good idea, we decided to change our anniversary date.  Every time we tried to plan for our anniversary, rates were higher and it never really felt like our special day.

Choosing the Date & Location…

            We didnâ€t want to go in debt having the wedding our dreams, so we looked into having our ceremony on a cruise.  We also wanted to find a cruise that would be affordable for our family and friends.  We decided on cruise during the off season.  We booked the Carnival Victory cruise ship, October 2013 but we have not the wedding.  Iâ€ve called every day and so far, there are no wedding booked for this cruise and weâ€ll be booking in the next 3 weeks.

Past Carnival Cruise Bride, I Need Help…

            If youâ€ve had a wedding on a Carnival cruise before, please help me with the details.  Iâ€ve listed a few questions that Iâ€m curious about.  Thanks in advance, Chyrise.

  • Whatâ€s all included in the wedding package, flowers or music?
  • Can I make my own bouquets and bring them on the ship?
  • What all can I bring on the ship?  I want to have a sand ceremony and bring Hershey chocolate bar wedding favors.
  • Do they have wedding singers?  I would love to have someone sing at the ceremony.
  • I want to see pictures!!  If you have any of your cruise ship weddings can you please post them??
  • Any other tips, feel free to post them.

    • 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.
