Boat weddings are becoming widely spread nowadays. They allow great flexibility in planning and let you realize almost all your dreams. For example, you can organize any kind of ceremony aboard a ship, travel to other countries and cities, invite as many people as you wish or to stay together without anybody else.
You can choose such type of ceremony and thereby you will solve a list of problems. Firstly, in this case you will not have to think of where to go for a honeymoon. You may have round-the-world voyage or to visit places where you have never ever been.
Boat wedding is the best choice in the event that you would like to minimize a number of organizational questions. You can rent a luxury liner or book cruise and you would be offered a set of free services. There are certain standard amenities you should expect to find on any cruise you book. These include accommodation, meals, entertainment, shore excursions, medical, spa and beauty treatments. Besides, there are special offers for newly wedded. For example, some travel companies offer a so-called wedding package. In accordance with it you should make a reservation of at least six cabins and your wedding ceremony will be organized and performed on board or on a beautiful uninhabited island free of charge. A jazz band, decorations, flowers, champagne and a huge wedding cake will be available cost free. A travel company will also solve all the problems connected with documents and invite a priest or civil authorities.
Speaking about documents it is necessary to mention that if your cruise will take you to foreign waters, a passport is often required. Whatever the case, make a point of checking with your travel agent about the document requirements of the destination you choose.
If you are not on a tight budget and you long for privacy, you can rent a whole ship; otherwise you can make a reservation of several rooms. Like airline or train travel, cruises have different classes of accommodation. Generally there are two types of rooms at various levels of luxury: Oceanview, or outside rooms, and No View, or inside rooms. Oceanview rooms, located on the outer part of the ship, have a small, round window or porthole looking out at the ocean. No View rooms are located on the inner part of the ship and have no windows at all. If you want to save some money you can choose the second type of rooms, because they are a little bit cheaper. Do not be afraid that you will be assigned to a dark musty cave. On the contrary, the cruise lines do their best to make these rooms bright and comfortable.
And if you do not want to miss your own wedding you should remember that it is an absolute requirement that you be aboard ship half an hour prior to departure.
