Princess Cruise Line’s recent announcement of their Valentine’s Day vow renewal cruise may have sparked you to turn your marriage flame into a five-alarm fire. If you want to jump on board this romantic trend, here’s a look at a few of our favorite cruises that offer vow renewals.
Disney Fairy Tale Weddings
Disney takes its magical ever after to the high seas with two spectacular settings: onboard nuptials or the sandy shores of Disney Castaway Cay. While the packages are not specific to vow renewal, you can choose from the wedding options. As with anything Disney, the allure is in the distinct details from the florals to your officiant. The package also includes a solo pianist, wedding cake and champagne toast celebration, dinner for two at Palo, steaming service for the couple’s attire and a $100 stateroom credit. Packages start at $3500.
Aside from the “Love Boat” cruise sailing on Valentines Day of 2020, Princess offers two packages. The Renewal of Vows, costing $226, includes flowers, framed formal portrait, champagne, chocolate-covered strawberries, two princess souvenir champagne glasses, and Godiva Chocolates. For $499 the Deluxe Renewal of Vows features all of the benefits of the Renewal of Vows package plus champagne breakfast in bed, two robes to take home, one 25 minute massage or facial per person, canapes delivered to your stateroom and a personalized invitation to visit the bridge while in port.
Carnival’s Basic Package, from $825, entitles the couple to a keepsake certificate, rose and boutonniere, two-tier wedding cake, sparkling wine toast, recorded ceremony music, and photography service. The ceremony includes eight guests. For $1450 the Deluxe Package consists of those mentioned above plus a one-hour open bar with hot/cold canapes and up to 20 guests. Have a big party? No problem. For a small fee, you can invite additional guests.
Choose from more than 280 destinations around the globe to profess your commitment to one another again. Whether you declare your love at sea or in port, Celebrity takes care of all the details. All you need to do is pick a port and a package. Packages range from $595 to $895 and include a pre-sailing event coordinator, flowers, photography service (photos not included), champagne, and cake. The Premium Package adds a wedding coordinator, photos, recorded ceremony music, gourmet breakfast, and more.
The world is your oyster on Holland America. Choose your favorite destination to show your love; from the backdrop of a glacier to the quaint chapel of Half Moon Cay. Present a valid marriage license, and your coordinator will help plan your special day.
Royal romance exudes in your vow renewal celebration on Royal Caribbean. The average cost for the affair starts at $1200, and while the packages are not specific to vow renewal, the options are endless. The sky is the limit when it comes to destination choices to a number of guests. Make it as grand or as intimate as you desire.
