Say ‘I Do’ with Cunard

For the first time in the line’s 172 year history, couples will soon be able to say “I Do” aboard Cunard’s famous ocean liners. Beginning in April 2012, passengers will be able to celebrate a wedding day at sea, conducted by the Captain, aboard Queen Mary 2, Queen Elizabeth and Queen Victoria. Couples wishing to wed at sea can choose from the full spectrum of Cunard’s worldwide voyages lasting seven nights or more and departing after April 2012. In addition to Crossings, destinations include the Mediterranean and Scandinavia, Canada and New England, the Caribbean, the Panama Canal, Hawaii, the Far East and Australia. And to make sure that couples have a special day, only one wedding will be arranged per day, at either 11 a.m. or 3:30 p.m., and the ceremonies will take place on days at sea. With a dedicated on board wedding co-ordinator, the bride and groom will find that all of their wedding needs can be met, from hairdressing, make-up and manicures in the spa, to the wedding ceremony itself, as well as photography and video, and the reception afterwards. As well, weddings can be customized with Cunard’s “Finishing Touches” to reflect individual requests and preferences, from an accompaniment by the ship’s own harpist to a beautiful ice sculpture. Cost for the “never-to-be-forgotten” day is $2,500 plus a marriage license fee of $575. Complete details are available by visiting .
