Carnival Cruise Line’s popular wedding program, which hosts more than 2,600 couples a year , offers a variety of value-added choices and amenities, everything from floral arrangements, decorations and photography to delicious culinary selections and romantic on-island ceremonies – allowing couples to make their “big day” even more special and memorable.

Available aboard the cruise ship on embarkation day, while a ship is docked in a port of call or at sea as well as beautiful shoreside settings at select destinations, Carnival’s wedding packages are already immensely popular and the line continues to enhance the program with new options and choices.

Shipboard celebrations include lavishly presented culinary options and beverage service, along with wedding cake choices like chocolate ganache, coconut cream, and red velvet, all baked on board. Enhanced amenities such as a decorated wedding aisle and other traditional touches, along with champagne flutes and other keepsake items, are also included.

For those who want to tie the knot in paradise, there are beachside ceremonies with choices such as Grand Turk, Barbados, Freeport, Grand Cayman, St. Thomas, the private Bahamian island of Half Moon Cay and other beautiful and exotic locales.

Wedding packages include the services of a personal wedding planner to assist the couple on their special day, as well as priority check-in and boarding for all embarkation day wedding guests. Wedding packages can be customized with music and videography services at an additional cost.

Prices start at $1,450 for shipboard weddings and $2,143 for shoreside ceremonies with additional costs for food, beverages and other amenities.

Couples can also reaffirm their marriage vows with Carnival Cruise Line’s Renewal of Vows ceremonies which are performed by the ship’s captain.
