LET’S TALK MORE ABOUT YOUR WEDDING CEREMONY, after all, you have been dreaming of this day for some time. Carnival Weddings provides legally binding wedding services in accordance with the laws that govern the port in which the vows are being exchanged. We’ll talk more about your legal wedding under licensing requirements. Civil ceremonies are performed in English by a Notary Public. Ceremonies in the ports of St. Thomas, Galveston, New Orleans, California, Barbados, Nassau, Half Moon Cay, Freeport, Grand Turk, Jamaica and Grand Cayman are non-denominational and performed by a Minister. Weddings in Cozumel are performed by a Judge, in Spanish and translated to English. Our shipboard weddings will include an aisle runner and silk floral arrangements in a private lounge. Island Breeze wedding setups may vary depending on location; couples are encouraged to enhance their ceremony venues with upgrade options.

All ceremonies are performed in port before the ship sails. Locations are determined based on the number of guests attending, length of reception and options selected. Ceremony times and locations are confirmed within two weeks of sailing. We try our best to stick to a tight schedule, however delays or changes due to unforeseen events can happen. For weddings scheduled during the cruise, it is not recommended that you and your guests plan shore excursions on the same day as your wedding.

LET’S GET STARTED… HOW DO I BOOK? Once you’ve confirmed the wedding space is available and booked your Carnival cruise, our personal wedding planners can secure your wedding package. Our planners will be there every step of the way, giving you guidance on which options are best for you, licensing requirements, entertainment, menus and upgrades. All weddings taking place at any of our U.S. ports are subject to applicable sales tax. Please refer to the pricing port chart for more information.

Wedding packages can be booked with a major credit card by phone; full payment for the wedding package is due at the time of booking. Advanced reservations are required if you would like to mail in your payment with a travel agency check, cashier’s check or money order. Due to limited space, if you wish to mail in your payment, your wedding reservation will be put on a courtesy hold for 48 hours. Given the demand, after 48 hours the hold is dropped. Sorry, no personal checks accepted.

When mailing in payments, please include your booking reservation number, couple’s names, home address, telephone number, ship, sail date and approximate number of guests attending.

All payments for wedding packages must be payable to:
Carnival Cruise Lines
Attn: Wedding Department MSGW-423S
P.O. Box 025431, Miami, Fl. 33102

Some other things to consider…your PRE-CRUISE TRAVEL ARRANGEMENTS. We strongly recommend our wedding couples and their guests arrive at least one day prior to sailing to avoid late flights, traffic, etc., on their wedding day. Arriving to the homeport city the day prior is not a requirement for the wedding program, only a suggestion, however, we want this day to be as stress-free as possible and will work diligently to provide early boarding to our wedding couples and their guests.

You will want to work with your travel agent, Carnival’s Reservations or Group Reservations departments to coordinate your pre-cruise travel packages. For a nominal fee, Carnival’s Air Sea Deviation Department will coordinate your customized flight times; your travel agent must make arrangements with Carnival’s Air Sea Deviation Department no later than 45 days prior to your cruise. Please note that Carnival transfers to port will not get you there on time for your wedding. These transfers are for regular boarding. Please make alternate arrangements for prompt transportation to the pier

PRIORITY CHECK-IN. Priority boarding is provided for couples getting married the day of embarkation, once the ship is cleared by U.S. Customs. Please be prompt and pay special attention to your boarding information to ensure you are at the pier on time for priority boarding. You and your guests, both sailing and non-sailing, must arrive together to board with priority boarding. Couples who have selected a wedding package later in the cruise will follow general boarding procedures.

Proper travel documentation is required at embarkation and throughout the cruise. Even though a guest has completed registration using online check-in, it is still the responsibility of the guest to bring all required travel documents. Please refer to carnival.com, cruise preparation topic under FAQs - what is the required travel documentation for all ports?

Your WEDDING GUESTS are important to us too! Please ensure they arrive with you promptly, with proper photo identification. We’ll need your final guest list along with payment on any additional guests no later than 30 business days prior to the cruise. No refunds will be provided for guests that are no shows. Guests wishing to cancel the week of sailing will be considered no shows and no refunds will be provided. An additional service fee (see pages 20-21 for applicable fee) will apply for every 50 guests attending the wedding, whether they are children or adults, including the wedding couple.

Payment for all additional guests must be made 30 business days prior to sailing. An additional $25 processing fee will apply for all changes made to the final guest list within 30 business days prior to the sail date. No changes or additions can be made within 10 business days prior to the sailing date. Guests’ cancellations within the week of sailing will be considered no shows and are non-refundable.

For the wedding couple, a note on LICENSING REQUIREMENTS. While we can provide assistance or licensing information, all couples are responsible for obtaining their own marriage license. You must obtain a license from the state or island where the wedding will be performed. With most wedding packages, licensing fees are separate from the wedding package price and are non-refundable. While most jurisdictions recognize marriages formalized in foreign jurisdictions, not all do. You are responsible for determining whether a wedding performed in a foreign jurisdiction will be recognized in your home jurisdiction. Our wedding planners will include further information explaining how to obtain your marriage license and any applicable fees at the time of booking your wedding package.

CANCELLATION POLICY. We understand sometimes things come up. Written cancellation notice by the wedding couple must be received in our office by the date specified below if you wish to cancel your wedding. Weddings must be cancelled separately from your cruise. Our cancellation policy is as follows: full refund if cancelled 76 days prior to sailing, $150 cancellation charge 75 to 46 days prior to sailing, 50% of total wedding charges 45 to 8 days prior to sailing. Unfortunately, no refund is applicable if canceled within seven days of sailing. Certain locations will require the payment of a non-refundable deposit that will not be subject to this refund policy.

CHANGES IN ITINERARY, CANCELLATIONS OR DELAYS BY CARNIVAL. Carnival has the right without previous notice to cancel, reschedule or delay performance of the wedding agreement at the port of embarkation or any time during the cruise for any reason whatsoever, including but not limited to (i) charter of the vessel, (ii) the ship’s Master exercising their discretion, for any purpose, to deviate in any direction or for any purpose from the direct or usual course, and to omit or change any or all ports of call; arrival or departure times, with or without notice for any reason whatsoever, all such deviations being considered as forming part of and included in the proposed voyage, or (iii) any reason beyond Carnival’s reasonable control; without prior notice, and shall not be held liable for damages, compensation and any inconveniences caused to our guests by reason of such cancellation or rescheduling.

ALL PACKAGE TERMS AND PRICES ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE WITHOUT NOTICE. We tried to include as much information as we could to share how special we can make your wedding day. Some information included here is general; detailed information such as contracts/agreements, procedures, amenities, requirements and pier directions will be mailed to you after you have booked your Carnival wedding package.

OUR GOAL IS TO MAKE YOUR WEDDING DAY A STRESS-FREE, FUN AND MEMORABLE EXPERIENCE.

Important Note: Wedding package details and pricing are subject to change by cruise lines without notice.
