need info: Wedding on cruise ships.

I understand that many crusie lines offer wedding packages. Why does the wedding have to take place in port? Is it illegal to get married on ship while its out to sea? How many of you have gotten married on a cruise? Thanks for any info.

You probaly have to get married in port because when you go 3 miles out you are in international waters, and you would not be married in the USA. Why not ask the cruise line.

Your fiancée is a US citizen, right? If not it might make things a little more complicated.

Some cruise lines will do it at sea (I know Princess will), but most won't. As said above, you need to check with each cruise line, they all have wedding sections for their websites and often have coordinators you deal with that do just wedding stuff.

Your second stop should be www.cruisecritic.com

They have a special wedding message board as well.

I got married on a cruise ship... it was Royal Carribean, while it was in the port at Long Beach. It was actually really nice...

The marriage only lasted 14 months, but the wedding ceremony was still a positive experience.
