Instead of a traditional wedding registry for household items, couples can register with Honeymoon Wishes for memorable experiences to enhance their cruise such as a couples’ massage at the Mandara Spa, a romantic dinner at one of Norwegian’s signature specialty restaurants, or an adventurous shore excursion. Engaged couples can even have friends and family contribute to their cruise fare, to help send them on the honeymoon of a lifetime.
Newlyweds can customize requested gift amounts to ensure that everyone can find a gift that fits their budget. When a wedding present is purchased using Honeymoon Wishes, the couple will receive an online gift announcement with a personalized message from the sender. Customized deluxe gift cards can also be mailed, either directly to the happy couple or to the guest, so that they can be presented at the wedding or shower.
Couples have the option to withdraw cruise fare contributions** anytime and as often as they desire with no additional fees, so they can plan their honeymoon on their schedule. All funds received through a Norwegian Cruise Line honeymoon registry for onboard items and activities are applied to the couples’ stateroom account* as a credit five days prior to their embarkation.
Norwegian Cruise Line offers the most freedom and flexibility at sea for couples looking to experience their dream wedding at sea or in port. Norwegian offers legally recognized weddings at sea performed by the ship’s captain aboard Norwegian Breakaway, Norwegian Getaway, Norwegian Escape and Norwegian Epic, 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 spectacular 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.
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, bouquet and matching boutonniere, 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 all US ports.
* Cruise credit is valid for a single voyage and cannot be transferred to future bookings. Cruise credit is non-refundable. Couples must have a booking number to apply credits to their stateroom account.
** All gifts purchased within five days of embarkation will be sent to guest directly according to guest’s payment preference.
