What You Need to Know


Priority check-in is provided to guests having a ceremony on embarkation day only. Please be at the cruise terminal between 10:00am and 10:30am to meet with your on-site wedding coordinator to ensure that you will receive priority check-in. Please make sure that all sailing and non-sailing guests are with you at this time. All sailing guests must have their paperwork completed in their ticket book prior to arriving at the terminal. Please note that we are at the mercy of customs on the day of embarkation. Once the clearance is given from Customs and Immigration, your wedding coordinator will escort you and your guests through the terminal check-in. Your non-sailing guests will need to provide Security with the identification that was provided on the Visitor Request Form. Please advise them that they will be escorted to the ceremony lounge and the bridal couple will be escorted to their stateroom, which will be ready for them upon embarkation. If there is anything that you need for your wedding ceremony, please hand-carry these onboard, as all luggage will be delivered to the staterooms later in the afternoon.


Notice of cancellation must be made in writing to Royal Ocean Events Inc.
Cancellation made prior to 60 days of the wedding date will receive a full refund of any monies paid, less $500.00 USD (for harborside and destination ceremonies) and $300.00 USD (For At Sea ceremonies) non-refundable administration fee. Cancellations made less than 60 days prior to the wedding day will forfeit the full payment already paid.

Please note that it is the responsibility of the wedding couple to obtain information and apply for a marriage license from the desired port that they wish to marry in. Please inquire with Royal Ocean Events coordinator regarding the procedure in obtaining a marriage license in the port that you wish to get married in. If you choose to have a non-legal ceremony in a destination port, please advise your coordinator, as you are required to sign a Symbolic Waiver form 30 days before your ceremony.


Please be advised that in the event of strikes, lockouts, weather conditions, medical difficulties or any reason whatsoever Norwegian Cruise Line and Royal Ocean Events may at
any time without prior notice cancel, advance, postpone or deviate from any scheduled sailing or port of call, Norwegian Cruise Line and Royal Ocean Events shall not be held liable
for any loss whatsoever incurred by reason of such cancellation, advancement, postponement or deviation. This includes the ship not being able to call into any port due to weather.


All onboard ceremony times and locations are assigned by the Norwegian Group Service Coordinators based on the guest count, ceremony and reception requirements. Destination
ceremonies are arranged with Royal Ocean Events and times are given to you based on the number of guests and ceremony requirements. All times and locations are assigned
approximately 30 days before your wedding date.


All of our shipboard wedding packages are designed to accommodate the bride and groom. Norwegian Weddings will allow up to 10 non-sailing guests to board the ship for the
ceremony at no additional charge. Should your non-sailing guest count exceed 10, then you will be required to hold a reception. If your non-sailing guest count exceeds 50, please
advise your wedding coordinator so he/she may contact Norwegian Cruise Line for approval.
