Celebrity Cruises Honeymoons, Destination Weddings & Vow Renewals

Are weddings offered on Celebrity Cruises?

Yes.  The cruise line offers Weddings and Vow Renewals.

Who performs the weddings on Celebrity Cruises?

On all of Celebrity’s ships (with the exception of Expedition), government regulations have changed to allow for captains to perform legal marriages while the ships sail the seas of the world. These legal, captain-led wedding ceremonies are performed under the Maltese flag and complement our existing shipboard, shoreside and vow renewal offerings.

Where do the Celebrity Cruises weddings take place?

They are held in the ship’s library, chapel, or one of the ship’s lounges.  Destinations weddings take place at the venue of your choice.

Where are Celebrity Cruises receptions held?    

Wedding or Vow Renewal receptions may be held in the specialty restaurants during regular operating hours or as a private function.

How many guests can be accommodated at a Celebrity Cruises wedding?

As a complimentary service provided by Celebrity Cruises, wedding parties may have up to ten (10) non-sailing guests in attendance at the wedding ceremony. If there are more than ten (10) non-sailing guests, a reception package must be booked. Additional cake and champagne does not constitute a reception. If a reception is booked on the ship, additional non-sailing guests may attend the ceremony and reception. Please note that in some ports of call, non-sailing guests are not permitted to board the ship due to security restrictions.

Wedding parties with a reception may have a maximum of one hundred and fifty (150) non-sailing guests board the ship for their celebration. Wedding parties with 25-50 guests require the services of an additional Wedding Coordinator and will be charged an additional $150.00 US Dollars. For each additional twenty-five (25) guests, Celebrity Cruises requires the services of one additional Wedding Coordinator. Couples who choose to have a destination wedding ceremony may purchase an onboard reception following their ceremony. There is an additional fee of $150.00 US Dollars as onboard receptions require a Wedding Coordinator.

What time of day are Celebrity Cruises weddings performed?

Ceremony times and locations are assigned according to the requirements of each wedding or onboard event.
