Default Oy, whatta wedding!

One would think that a wedding on a ship, would be a day to remember, and it was for all the wrong reasons for this couple. After watching the video, it seems a bomb scare was the catalyst, that changed this couples memories...from a need to happen, shortened wedding ceremony, the toast, being drowned out by an announcement over the loudspeaker, a stray passenger chomping on a buffet he shouldn't have, & guests being told they need to disembark...this surely was one for the books..Carnival couldn't have done anything different, and they gave the couple a refund on the wedding costs...take a look!

I suppose the Captain could've held the ship until they finished their celebrations... maybe 9pm would be reasonable???

And skip the "rude" announcements. The passengers don't need to know where the lifeboats are anyhow. So what if it's Maritime Law.

What kind of twit books a wedding on a cruise ship on embarkation day anyhow? If Carnival did anything wrong, it was to allow this to happen.

Yes it is unfortunate but stuff happens. Considering the refund I classify this as a classic bridezilla tantrum.

How dare some nutcase not coordiante the bomb threat with Bridezilla and Groom Monster!

The nerve of the cruisline to inconvenience Bridezilla and Groom Monster with a muster drill!

Bridezilla and Groom Monster should use the refund for a nice reception for the guests on land and quit pouting!

I really feel for that couple! During our wedding on March 4, 1972, my mother-in-law fainted during the wedding ceremony. I never saw a rabbi finish a wedding service so quickly! Thank G-d our marriage turned out better than the wedding ceremony.
