Can You Get Married on a Carnival Cruise?
Yes. Carnival Cruise ships host both onboard weddings and shore-side destination weddings when a ship is in port. Professional wedding coordinators can help a couple design their wedding package and weddings can accommodate up to 50 non-sailing guests. Note: You can't merely get married on Carnival; you'll also need to sail with the line on your honeymoon right after the ceremony.
Carnival Cruise Wedding Packages
On-board wedding package prices are separate from the cost of the cruise. After the ceremony, couples can opt to have anything from an open bar and hors d’oeuvres reception to a sit-down luncheon in a ship’s formal restaurant. Island destination weddings can be performed in venues on the beach, island resort or garden.
