To help guarantee your day is as memorable as possible, we have put together some tips for getting married on our cruise ship.
Tip #1: Own the Weather.
When you think about taking a cruise, you may find yourself worrying about the weather. Onboard the Skyline Princess, all you need to worry about is having a good time! Our yacht is designed to operate all-year round, in any type of weather. Your party will have access to all three levels, and even if it rains – the third deck is fully enclosable, so you’ll never need to worry about sacrificing space or being forced to change your plans.
Tip #2: Choose your Style
Your wedding day should be all about what you want, as a couple. Having the flexibility to plan the details as you choose is important in any celebration, and we want to make it easy for you. Skyline Princess Cruises offer a versatile layout, with both traditional and modern styled receptions to choose from. It’s important to be comfortable on your wedding day, and there’s no better way to do that than designing a custom package that reflects your personalities and your relationship.
Tip #3: Choose Vendors Early
You’ve already decided on the perfect location, now it’s time to book the ideal vendors. Our expert staff at Skyline Princess Cruises has contact information for preferred and experienced companies. Don’t forget that our wedding packages include full service catering, an open bar, and the wedding cake of your choice!
Tip #4: Decide Where to Depart
One of the most important choices in planning a wedding cruise is choosing which port to depart from. It can help to consider the distance you’ll be traveling, as well as travel time for your guests. At Skyline, we work with plenty of nearby hotels that offer discounts to our customers, so be sure to inquire when booking. We have ten different ports to choose from when reserving the whole yacht for your event. Take a look at our map and decide which one is best for you!
Tip #5: Take Tons of Pictures
There is no better setting for gorgeous wedding photos than on our cruise ship. Take photos before the many beautiful icons of the Long Island Sound and the Manhattan Skyline. Imagine how beautiful your photos will be in front of the Statue of Liberty! The photo opportunities aboard the Skyline Princess are plentiful, and your wedding album is sure to be a work of art.
