To begin, I really appreciated that the wedding department and booking department were not pushy. As I was torn about whether this was the direction I wanted to go, I appreciated them answering my questions without trying to sell me on the idea. They always answered my calls in a timely manner and even when I emailed the wedding department, got back to me within a few days (and since my wedding is a year off, that was great) First, you must decide what cruise you want to take and then call up the wedding department to see if they have availability for the wedding. Then once you know they do, you get connected with the booking department to make your reservation. Once you make your reservation, then you go back to the wedding department to book the wedding. The wedding department gives you 48 hours to hold a date, which was a negative for me. I ended up pushing the hold back for week and they let me do that, 2 days at a time. After one week though, they said that was all the time I could have and I had to make a decision. Even that felt a bit rushed, because you don't want to lose your date, but I understand why.

One of the great perks of booking a cruise wedding with Carnival is that it can be much less stressful isnce they have a person either included in your package (or you hire) for your DJ, videographer, photographer, cake, and food. That saves you a lot of hassle from finding them on your own. You just have to make sure when you book the wedding that they are available and book the DJ and videographer right away.

One thing I wish I knew in advance was that you can't purchase the drink package, Cheers, the first day of the cruise when you sail out of New York Since my wedding will be on the first day of the cruise, this really disappointed me to find out after the fact because I didn't get that information when originally asked about the Cheers package.

My weding is a while off, but all in all, so far my experience has been pretty positive!

We booked a cruise through Carnival for our honeymoon and they could not have been more helpful! The woman i spoke to was so excited to hear all about my wedding and even booked the exact room I wanted! She explained all of the little insider tips for cruises and gave some great advice! If you are wanting to go on a cruise for your honeymoon, Carnival is the way to go!

Our son and fiancee are planning this wedding with #Carnival Cruise Lines and already they've had several problems arise. Three weeks before the wedding the Consultant is now calling to inform them there are other charges that were not covered in the original price quote. They were told, on several occasions, that sailing guests were included in the Exclusive Package since they were already paying to cruise - now they want an additional $2800+/- for those guests. Even though we provided an email where they only mention the charge for the non-sailing guest and clearly state that sailing guest are included, they are not willing to make adjustments or absorb part of the cost....this is already not a good start!! Seems like #Carnival is "double dipping" by charging the guests plus charging the Bride/Groom - doesn't seem right!!

We have cruised with Carnival on numerous occasions, as has our son, his fiancee, our daughters, their spouses, grandchildren, our siblings, etc. and we really expected better of them - shame on us for having such expectations!

I HAD MY WEDDING ON THE SPLENDOR CARNIVAL CRUISE SHIP. THE WEDDING PLANNER NAMED AYSHA SHOULD BE REPLACED!!! I AM STILL WAITING TO HEAR FROM CARNIVAL. AYSHA COULD NOT EVEN PPLAY THE WEDDING SONG. I WAITED FOR OVER 15 MINUTES TO MARCH BECAUSE THE GIRLS COULD NOT GET THE SONG TO PLAY. AYSHA LOST MY LUGGAGE AND ALSO SENT MY FAMILY TO EAT ON THE 9TH FLOOR (BUFFET) WHILE THE CEREMONY WAS GOING ON... I PAID FOR THIS NOT AYSHA... POOR HANDLING.. I HAVE A VIDEO SHOWING PROOF. IF YOU CHOOSE A DJ PLEASE CHOOSE DJ FOCUS. DJ ELEKTRA SUCKS!!!

We went on Carnival for our honeymoon and it was the best trip ever. We cruised on Carnival Victory to the Southern Caribbean. We had soo much fun. The food is constant and delicious. The dinners were fun with the great staff. Expect to pay more for drinks but you are on vacation right? So what does it matter? Live it up! :)

We loved that there were so many options for the excursions at each port. We wish we could have done more. Definitely sign up for the excursions before you go on the cruise. You can pay for them online and that made it easier for us, plus it guarantees you to get in the excursion. We did have one excursion have to get cancelled because of something that was wrong with the boat we were supposed to go on. Not a problem though, they called us and we got to go down to the desk and pick out a new trip.

Our rooms were always cleaned very nicely. There was always a cute towel animal when we came back from dinner. My favorite was the monkey hanging from the tv.

If you are looking for an affordable way to enjoy each other (and family), have fun, and have great experiences I would totally recommend Carnival. We are planning our next cruise now and I can't wait.

Used carnival cruise lines for a seven day cruise that stopped in key west florida for our wedding ceremony. Ship was full of geriatric community, most of the activities were geared towards them. The activities that we did participate in were ridiculously expensive. It costed 20.00 for one BINGO card, 8.00 for a mixed drink, 1.75 for a 12oz canned soda. Majority of the food was buffet style. The desserts from dinner were put out on a buffet for the nighttime. I was not impressed with the quality of food at all. We did have a wonderful crew on board. Majority had thick accents, and I saw one american that was part of the crew. The cruise line is definitely making money. We could not get a detailed description of our particular ship prior to the cruise date, so we only knew random things that our travel company could tell us.

The wedding (40 people on a boat out of galveston) cost much much less than a wedding on-shore would have. Thee were fewer choices for catering and events, but everything was beautiful!

Great way to spend the honeymoon. Note to others, get the trip insurance it came in handy when my asthma and allergies sent me to the medic several time while I was on the boat and I didnt have medical insurance.

We loved our wedding!! here is the riveiw i wrote to Carnival :

Sasha,

I just want to thank you so much for helping with all the arrangements. We had a blast and the wedding turned out WONDERFULL! We loved everything and it turned out beautifully. Everything went smoothly and I didn't have to worries about to much. I had a blast and so did all my guests. It has been almost a month since the wedding and we still have people talking about how beautiful it was and how well put together everything was. We even had people that have just seen pictures tell us how beautiful the wedding and everything was. Thank you so much to yourself and Carnival for making our wedding day so wonderful!

Thank You,
Jessica Elzy
