Say “I Do” To Weddings On Land & At Sea With Norwegian Cruise Line

Engaged couples whose dreams of the perfect being include exchanging vows while sailing into the sunset can now do so on a Norwegian Cruise Line sailing. The line has announced it will begin offering legally recognized weddings at sea performed by the ship’s captain beginning this month on Norwegian Breakaway and Norwegian Getaway, and on Norwegian Escape when she launches this fall.

Norwegian’s Wedding At Sea package includes everything necessary for couples to celebrate their nuptials, including a bridal bouquet and matching boutonniere, champagne toast, wedding cake, and more. An experienced wedding coordinator will assist them every step of the way during the planning process and, once on board, they will enjoy their big day stress free, as on-site wedding coordinators handle all of the day’s details so the happy couple can relax and enjoy their special day. The onboard ceremonies will be performed by the ship’s Captain, with the couple’s marriage license issued by the Bahamas.

In addition to weddings at sea, Norwegian also offers customizable destination wedding experiences in one of the line’s romantic ports of call. Whether they choose to tie the knot overlooking the sparkling ocean, atop a majestic glacier in Alaska, or under a canopy of palm trees on an exotic Caribbean beach, couples planning their dream destination wedding with Norwegian can select a Harborside Ceremony, performed on board while the ship is docked in select ports of call, or Destination Ceremony, performed on shore in select ports of call.

Ceremonies are available in a wide range of destinations—including Norwegian’s domestic embarkation ports, as well as beautiful ports of call in Canada, Mexico, Europe, the Caribbean, and Bermuda. From a romantic, intimate ceremony in Santorini, Greece to an elaborate portside affair in Maui with dozens of guests, engaged couples sailing with Norwegian can commemorate the most important day of their life as they’ve always imagined it.

With a wide range of packages available, Norwegian offers everything that couples need for their perfect celebration. All packages include an officiant or ship officer to perform the ceremony, on-site wedding coordinator, private ceremony location, ceremony vows, flowers, prerecorded ceremony music, a bottle of sparkling wine, keepsake wedding certificate, and wedding cake. Norwegian is also pleased to offer legal same-sex ceremonies, available in destinations where same-sex marriages are recognized by local law, including Boston, Hawai’i, Los Angeles, New York, Seattle, Vancouver, Tampa, Miami, and Port Canaveral.

Norwegian also offers a wide selection of enhancements and services that couples can choose from to further personalize their celebration, including spa and beauty treatments, flowers (including custom orders), professional photography and videography, transportation to and from the ship or wedding location, priority check-in, and a variety of wedding reception options, ranging from an elegant cocktail reception with gourmet selections and open bar to a four-course sit-down luncheon with wine service.

For couples who wish to re-confirm their love while at sea, Norwegian’s Vow Renewal package offers married couples the opportunity to celebrate their love all over again with a private vow renewal ceremony performed by one of the ship’s officers. The package includes ceremony music, a romantic single red rose, champagne toast, a celebration cake for two, a commemorative vow renewal certificate, an 8x10 professional portrait in an engraved frame, sparkling wine, canapes and chocolate-covered strawberries delivered to their stateroom the evening of the ceremony.

Honeymooners, too, can take advantage of all that Norwegian’s Freestyle Cruising has to offer including romantic dinners for two in the line’s signature restaurants; pampering couples spa treatments in Norwegian’s award-winning Mandara Spas; and adventurous excursions in exciting ports of call.
