Weddings at sea proving a popular choice

03 Nov 2016

An increasing number of couples are choosing ceremonies at sea over traditional land-bound nuptials

Cruise holiday retailer has reported a surge in couples getting married at sea. 

Playing host to as many as 400 couples a year, Princess Cruises has adapted its offerings to meet demand for weddings onboard. Facilities now include a wedding chapel and state-of-the-art technology to transmit footage of the ceremony across the world via video link. Couples can even opt for the 'Tie the Knot At Sea' package whereby the ship's captain conducts the ceremony. 

Other cruise lines promoting ceremonies at sea include P&O Cruises, which hosts an average of 300 weddings per year, Royal Caribbean and Norwegian Cruise Lines.

With some cruise line wedding packages starting at just £1,500, marrying at sea is a budget-friendly way to tie the knot. representative, Ian Crawford, says: “The cruise industry is witnessing a huge surge in the number of wedding ceremonies happening at sea. Every couple wants their special day to be memorable, and what better way to celebrate than by travelling to exotic destinations with your loved ones in tow?”

Ian continues: “Weddings bring in big money for the industry, so it goes without saying that cruise lines are eager to offer the best value packages in order to stay ahead of the competition. Whether you’re looking for a private ceremony or are planning a big celebration to renew your vows, cruising is a cost-effective way to make your wedding day feel truly special."
