Carnival Cruise Lines revamps its wedding program
Carnival Cruise Lines has revamped its popular wedding program with upgrades to floral arrangements, decorations and photography. New culinary selections have been added as to the wedding packages as well.
Couples can say “I do” during shipboard celebrations which include an array of culinary options and upgraded beverage service, along with new multi-tiered wedding cake choices including chocolate ganache, coconut cream, and red velvet, all baked on board. Enhanced amenities such as a decorated wedding aisle and other traditional touches, along with upgraded champagne flutes and other keepsake items are included as well.
Carnival offers a variety of beachside ceremonies with recently added choices such as Grand Turk and Freeport complementing Barbados, Grand Cayman, St. Thomas, the private Bahamian island of Half Moon Cay and other beautiful and exotic locales.
“These new wedding upgrades offer travel professionals an excellent opportunity to build lucrative group business that is rich in value for their clients," said Joni Rein, Carnival’s vice president of worldwide sales. "In addition, we've taken the extra work out of marketing these packages with the new wedding brochure and web site that are also part of the upgrades.”
Wedding packages include the services of a personal wedding planner to assist the couple on their special day, as well as priority check-in and boarding for all wedding guests. Wedding packages can be customized with music and videography services at an additional cost.
Couples can also reaffirm their marriage vows with Carnival’s Renewal of Vows ceremonies which are performed by the ship’s captain.
Available both aboard ship on embarkation day or in tropical ports of call, Carnival has more than 2,600 ceremonies performed each year.
