Why I got Married During an Eastern Caribbean Cruise

My very first cruise was in 1990 on the Carnival Fantasy to the Eastern Caribbean. Although I had a wonderful time, I did not sail again until the year 2000 when my fiancé, now husband and I left on our 7 day Wedding Cruise on the Grand Princess to the Eastern Caribbean. Why did I choose a cruise as the vehicle to get married? Simple, because it is a hassle free, all-inclusive vacation that is easy to combine with a wedding, reunion, or other special event for a large or small group. My husband and I got to have our ceremony in the Caribbean, with family and friends in attendance and got to have an immediate honeymoon for the rest of the week and be treated like royalty by the wonderful cruise staff. With so much to do both on and off the ship, we could choose to spend time with our family or have time to ourselves.




That is what is so wonderful about the cruise vacation, for one price you get so much choice! How else can you get great accommodations, delicious food and outstanding service combined with the excitement of seeing the world and the convenience of unpacking once for the entire trip! Add an education seminar or an important social event to the cruise experience and you really do have the best of both worlds. Since my wonderful Wedding Cruise, I have sailed on over 15 cruises to the Caribbean, Alaska, Europe, Australia and New Zealand, on several different cruise lines. Because of my wonderful cruise experiences, I decided to share my love of the cruise vacation with as many individuals, families and groups as possible by becoming a Cruise Vacation specialist and Group Cruise Meeting Planner. After several successful group events at sea, I have found that there is nothing I like better than introducing a first time cruise passenger to the delights of the cruise vacation experience. Sharing that cruise vacation with family, friends or colleagues makes it even more rewarding! I truly believe a cruise is one of the best ways to travel!

Girl, you have never lied about the benefits of cruise vacations. After my first cruise, I knew that would be the way for me to enjoy 90% of my vacation time. All-inclusive, good food,a variety of places to visit, good food, all kinds of on-board entertainment, and great food make it totally worth it. Planning my next one as we speak! If you have never before taken a cruise, then it is something you absolutely must do! Worth every dime.
