RUISE-LOV­ING COU­PLES LOOK­ING

Porthole Cruise Magazine - - Trending Now -

for a bliss­fully sim­ple big day should look no fur­ther than their fa­vorite cruise ship or port city.

There’s some­thing in­cred­i­bly ro­man­tic about say­ing, “I do” with the ocean as your back­drop, and — if you’re al­ready think­ing of ty­ing the knot on a cruise — there are even more ways to get mar­ried on a ship than you may imag­ine. From the beaches of the Caribbean to the rain­forests of Alaska to a ship docked in the heart of the Big Ap­ple, the op­tions are as gor­geous as they are var­ied — just like the choice of ships on which to say your vows.

Best of all, the cruise line can han­dle ev­ery­thing from bou­quets and bou­ton­nieres to cen­ter­pieces, dé­cor, and menus to the Cham­pagne toast, pho­tog­ra­pher, mu­sic, and even that tiered, white-frosted wed­ding cake of your dreams. We’ve seen a gor­geous bal­loon drop on a Princess Cruises’ ship, ice carv­ings on a Car­ni­val Cruise Line ship, and Nor­we­gian Cruise Line even lets you check avail­able dates and book on­line. Ask nicely, and some­one may even steam the dress and press the tuxedo be­fore you walk down the aisle.

And since the ship is also the hon­ey­moon get­away, you’ll walk back up the aisle to the most me­morable va­ca­tion of your life, with bal­cony toasts to your fu­ture, choco­lates and straw­ber­ries wait­ing in your room, rose petals amid swan towel an­i­mals on your bed, night after night of ta­bles for two, morn­ing after morn­ing of break­fast in bed, and spa treat­ments de­signed for two. Sounds ap­peal­ing, right? Read on to fig­ure out which strat­egy is per­fect for your big day.
