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!

Here is a great cruise tip calculator: http://cruisetip.tpkeller.com/
Mariner of the Seas 3/30/08
"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."
Mark Twain
