Hello there. I am leaning towards a cruise wedding (for cost reasons) but Im not a experienced "cruiser". I have tried to gather as much info as I can on other posts but I still have some questions.
I have not decided a cruise line or destination even have a set date....hhahahhaha I figure it will come together. I know I want a short trip maybe 5-6 days and I want the ceremony on an island.
1. Do I plan through the cruise planner or find a location on the island on my own?
Also, It is my understanding that when you cruise you eat as a group in the formal dining room, right?
2.So should I plan a on-island reception or just a cocktail hour on the boat followed by our regular evening dinner?
3.Are you able to book time on the boats for first dances???
What I really want is just a nice beach ceremony (hopefully hurricaine season doesnt put a damper on that), a few apps and cocktails. maybe a cake and a dance with my hubby and dad AND a relaxing time with family and friends....is that too much to ask?!?!?!
