Have you ever dreamed of a wedding at sea and a ceremony performed by the Captain?

I have a wonderful young couple who wanted to turn their wedding dream into a beautiful memory.

Their favorite vacation was an Eastern Caribbean cruise onboard the Ruby Princess, so when planning their wedding they asked about having a destination wedding on another Eastern Caribbean cruise onboard the Emerald Princess.

Princess Cruises has a wonderful “Tie the Knot” program. After the couple booked and deposited their cruise we called the wedding department and set a date and time for the wedding. The process was very easy with a helpful wedding coordinator. They will have a wedding coordinator prior to the cruise to help with all their wishes prior to sailing and another one onboard ship to assist with final details.

That special day on a Princess Cruise can have amazing possibilities.


The first is an At Sea Wedding Package where the couple can be married onboard, by the Captain while sailing through international waters and includes:

  • Wedding chapel or ideal onboard location
  • Candlelit ceremony officiated by the Captain
  • Special vows at sea
  • Wedding Coordinator Onboard
  • Pre-recorded ceremony music (when available)
  • Photographer
  • Videographer
  • One 16” x 20” unframed canvas print
  • Two fresh floral arrangements
  • Rose bouquet (one dozen)
  • Boutonniere
  • 9” wedding cake
  • Bottle of Champagne
  • Two Princess keepsake champagne flutes

The second is a Harborside Wedding Package where in select ports family and friends can attend an onboard ceremony that takes place before the ship departs. The Harborside Wedding includes:

  • Priority check-in and boarding for couples and guests (only available for embarkation day weddings
