Shipboard Weddings

You’ve done the hard part: you’ve found the man or woman of your dreams, and aren’t they pretty much perfect? Do we ever have a wedding spot to match — aboard a Carnival ship!

A Carnival shipboard wedding provides a setting for starting your life together… one that’s as unique as the two of you. After all, think of all the weddings you’ve been to — your Carnival shipboard wedding is the fun alternative, with a view that’s hard to find on land, plus a sea breeze you just can’t get at a country club. Your wedding will be held when your ship is in port, but can happen in any one of a number of ports, so you can choose a city you’ll remember forever as the one where it all began.

Leave wedding stress ashore, because for a simple fee Carnival takes care of it all: the ceremony includes not only an officiant to get the knot tied right, but little details like the cake, champagne, music and more. And perhaps best of all, once you’re married, you’re practically already at your honeymoon!

Your shipboard wedding can be customized to fit your imagination and budget; add packages that include everything from a simple open bar and hors d’oeuvres reception to an elegant sit-down luncheon in your ship’s formal restaurant. Whatever you’re looking for, our professional wedding agents will help you design the ideal wedding, tailored to suit your needs. Learn More.
