A wedding onboard a fantastic cruise ship is many couples’ idea of a dream day. So it’s exciting news that couples can now hold their weddings or renew their vows onboard Royal Caribbean ships. The company has recently received permission from the Bahamas to conduct legal weddings at sea. The new Royal Caribbean “Sweethearts at Sea” program will let you spend the most important day of your life in the most beautiful of surroundings.
The Sweethearts at Sea program is running a fantastic promotional offer, which includes the ceremony performed by the Captain, wedding photography and much more! To take advantage of this great opportunity, you’ll need to book at least 12 staterooms on a Royal Caribbean International, sailing during the time of the introductory offer in 2013.
“Thanks to the support of the Bahamas, our guests can now be married during the course of their Royal Caribbean cruise and bask in the romance of the sea as they exchange their vows. Royal Caribbean’s staff and crew will cater the affair with our world-renowned friendly and engaging Gold Anchor Service to help make the day extra special for the couple and their guests.”
— Royal Caribbean CEO Adam Goldstein
