i will be traveling on the sovenior of the sea in april. what are the gratuties on a 4 day cruise. and what kind of activities are there and what are the best shore excursions. i'm excited about the cruise this will be our 3rd. but first on royal and without the boys. its for our 10 annivarsary can you get married on board i only want a small thing just me and hubby at sunset , we were thinking of going to vegas to get married and vacation, but we got a great deal with our timeshare membership so we decided to do this. i like fun and games and activiies. we are 31 and 32 years old. we like fun trivia, ( won 4 metals and 2 plastic ships on a stick , CCL December 9 ,Conquest 2007. i still love carnival even though there were a lot of delays and missed ports but i will definite cruise again with carnival. we have a special needs child and carnival is the only one that changes diapers on non potty trained little ones. but we are looking forward to this trip we are open for anything. i really want to go on a european cruise. well that's my 2 cents and qt.
I assume you mean the Sovereign of the Seas which sails 3 and 4 night cruises to the Bahamas. You can plan on about $10 per day per person for gratuities. As for excursions, Coco Cay is a great beach day, and in Nassau, I enjoy taking a trip to Atlantis on Paradise Island or just walking through town.
RCI doea have a wedding program on certain ships, but you will be married by a special wedding coordinator, not the captain. Some ships have them, and some don't so call your TA or the cruiseline and ask about the Sovereign.
Have a great cruise!

Just gotta warn ya, the rooms are really really tight, I see you have sailed CCL and they have very spacious cabins compared to the industry standard, so be prepared for a little shell shock. I was on her and her sister, love the ship, wish it would still do 7 day cuz I would be on her again, any one of them. The crowd should be lively from what I usually hear on 3-5 day cruises. I hope you enjoy her!!! please don't let the cabins scare you!
