My husband and I will be sailling on the Grand May27th. It is our 25th wedding anniversary and we purchased the Vow Renewal package. My question is, when are the arrangments made such as time and day for the service? Do you have any say in the choice or is it just assigned? Also I have read on other message boards that there are alot of perks for special occasions. Such as? We have booked a Cat.BE guarentee, what are our chances for an upgrade? I understand that there are only 6 or 8 BE on the ship? Sorry for so many questions but the cruise is a little more special than our previous ones.
My husband and I had a renewal of vows ceremony this summer on the Sea Princess. It was wonderful! Only two couples signed up for it and the Captain conducted the ceremony separately (we had been told it might be a group thing). We got a photograph of the event (and of course many more were available to buy), a bottle of really good champagne, and I got a bouquet of flowers and my husband a flower for his lapel. The Captain was very, very nice and the whole thing was really the highlight of our trip to Alaska. We did not receive an upgrade of cabin but we did get a great table at dinner (probably just lucky there).
