Renewing Wedding Vows on a Cruise Ship

by Lise - an avid cruiser

What could be more romantic than renewing wedding vows while on a cruise with your better half?

What are your reasons? Is it to celebrate your 5-year, 10-year, 25-year etc. wedding anniversary?

Or is it to reaffirm your commitment to one another?

Or you might have other reasons, but whatever it is, a wedding vows renewal on a cruise will definitely be a romantic moment to remember.

It is not an official legal event like a wedding. The ceremony may involve just the two of you and the officiant, or it may be a group of couples as well. On some ships, it's the captain who will perform it on board.

Each couple receives a photo in a souvenir frame. To arrange, you need to contact the guest relations manager at the front office once you are on board.

Just make sure that the ceremony is led by a non- denominational officiant, unless it's not an issue for you.

The packages offered by the different cruise lines can go from free to expensive, simple to elaborate.
