Princess Cruise Weddings General Information


Princess Cruise Weddings General information

Reservations and payment.

All ceremonies and receptions are booked based on availability. All weddings must be booked and paid in full at least 60 days prior to your cruise. If possible, weddings may be booked within 60 days at an additional late booking fee of $250 USD.

All wedding packages may be paid by check, money order or credit card. American Express, Visa, MasterCard and Discover are accepted. All pricing and payments are in U.S. dollars. All pricing and sales tax is subject to change without notice. Tie The KnotSM reserves the right to substitute items of equal or greater value.

Tie The KnotSM wedding consultants can arrange most of the services offered for land weddings, however, there are limitations onboard a cruise ship and at some of the ports of call. Extra touches should be ordered and paid in full as soon as possible due to the limited availability of some services. Extra touches must be booked no later than 60 days prior to sailing.

Tie The KnotSM reserves the right at any time not to book or to cancel a wedding onboard one of the ships if the wedding consultants feel they will not be able to accommodate the couple’s needs or meet their wedding expectations.

Please be advised that in the event of weather conditions, change in itineraries, missed ports, or unforeseen circumstances, Princess Weddings may at any time and without prior notice deviate from the set wedding time, location or reception length.

Ceremony and reception.

Times and locations are set based on the requirements of each event and will not be confirmed until 30 days prior to sailing Onboard weddings are normally performed in the chapel (if applicable) or in one of the onboard lounges. Land weddings are normally performed at a public beach, garden or gazebo. All times are approximate and may be delayed and land locations may be substituted due to unforeseen events.

Please note that some ports of call or the “At Sea” weddings require certain vows to be read by law. Please ask your wedding consultant for details.

Wedding guests.

All wedding packages are designed to accommodate the bride and groom. Tie The KnotSM will allow up to 10 non-sailing guests to board the ship for the ceremony at no additional charge. Princess will allow additional non-sailing guests if you purchase a wedding reception; see the reception sections for more details. If you do decide to purchase a reception or have more than 25 guests, an additional wedding consultant is required for each increment of 25. Due to security issues, some ports of call do not allow non-sailing guests. All non-sailing guests will need to present a government approved picture ID when boarding the ship, and they will need to depart the ship as per customs port regulations.

Your–choice boarding.

If you are being married on embarkation day, Tie The KnotSM consultants will meet you at the ship’s terminal at 10:30 a.m. and escort you onboard once U.S. Customs clears the ship.

You and your guests must carry onboard all of your wedding items in an airline approved carry-on (one per person) since luggage checked curbside may not arrive in your stateroom until after the wedding.

Cancellations, rescheduling and refunds.

Princess Tie the Knot Wedding bookings follow the same cancelation policy & refund policy as your Princess Cruise booking, with the exception of the marriage license fee. Please ask us consultant or see for details.
