Default Are Bon Voyage parties dead ?

My family lives in Ft. Lauderdale and since we're getting married aborad, I thought it would be nice if they could come aboard for a send off party. I heard only ticketed passengers are allowed aboard however ? Is this true ?

As a general rule it's true. However, have your travel agent check with the cruiseline now and see if it will be possible to bring a wedding party onboard. I know in the case of Silverseas, an ultra deluxe, you can have bon voyage parties but the names and particulars of the party goers have to be given to the cruiseline at least 2 weeks in advance so the cruiseline can vet the partygoers. It's worth a try.

I'm not sure of Princess's rules pertaining to this, but I've seen wedding parties onboard ships prior to sailing, when the ceremony is being held prior to sailing.
They do the ceremony and reception, with guest, prior to sailing.
If you're be married at sea, as opposed to prior to sailing, it might be more difficult to arrange, but definately worth exploring with Princess through your TA.

lalee,

Any event that involves bringing guests onboard definitely would need to be arranged through Princess in advance. Your travel agent can arrange a reception on board for you if you will arrive at the pier early enough, but it probably won't be inexpensive.

On the whole, you probably will do just as well to have the bon voyage party ashore before you go to the ship.

Norm.
