Hey folks, herte is the latest Press Release from Carnival about their new ship Miracle having a wedding chapel for use!
NEW CARNIVAL MIRACLE FEATURES WEDDING CHAPEL AND PACKAGES FOR COUPLES TO SAY
MIAMI (12/22/03) - Carnival Cruise Lines will offer a wide variety of
affordable and convenient wedding packages for couples seeking to tie the
knot aboard the new 88,500-ton Carnival Miracle, the line's newest "Fun
Ship" set to enter service from Jacksonville, Fla., Feb. 27, 2004. The ship
will also feature an intimate and elegant on-board wedding chapel - an ideal
venue for couples to exchange vows.
Wedding packages offer a ceremony aboard ship during embarkation day or at
various on-island locations, and complement the line's existing fleetwide
wedding program, which is expected to attract some 2,200 couples in 2004.
The Chapel aboard Carnival Miracle will feature stained-glass windows and
Old Testament scenes, along with a central aisle leading to the stage and a
private dressing area for the bride. The Gothic-style facility will serve as
the venue for weddings held during embarkation day while the ship is docked
at Jacksonville. The wedding packages will also be available at the ship's
three other homeports - Baltimore, New York and Tampa.
The "Just for the Bride & Groom" package starts at $750 and includes an
official civil ceremony, a champagne toast with keepsake flutes, flowers for
both bride and groom, a wedding cake with cake topper, pre-recorded wedding
music, a decorated bridal aisle and photographic services.
The "Welcome Aboard" package begins at $1,350 and offers all the amenities
of "Just for the Bride & Groom," as well as a reception with one-hour open
bar and hot-and-cold hors d'oeuvres, a traditional two-tiered wedding cake
and coffee service. Couples may also select the "Deluxe Romance" package,
which starts at $1,450 and includes a one-and-a-half hour reception and an
ice carving, as well as all the features of the other programs.
A wide variety of options such as videography services, live music and
tuxedo rental are also available at additional cost.
Shoreside ceremonies featuring a romantic tropical setting will also be
available in Key West, Grand Cayman and Cozumel.
Carnival Miracle is slated to debut from Jacksonville with a series
of 12 three- to six-day voyages through April 17, 2004, marking the first
time that Carnival has ever operated from that port. The ship will also
offer seven-day departures from Baltimore and New York before repositioning
to Tampa for year-round seven-day western Caribbean cruises from that port
beginning Nov. 7, 2004.
