That's awesome! I'm so happy for you both...

The Valor is my favorite ship. She is beautiful-there are so many places on board that will make fabulous wedding photos.

Warning...you will probably have random people (i.e. other cruisers) taking your picture if you walk around in your wedding dress...I say this because my friend did it to someone who got married on our Victory cruise in April because the couple was so sweet!

Good luck and happy sailing!

Some quick notes about getting married on the ship (specifically the Valor)-

Priority boarding was exceptional, but, as expected, still rushed. Limited AC on the boat due to it being in port. Ended up in our room where the wife was getting ready with our friend/her hair dresser. Since we were walking in together, I was the second person to see her in her dress. Of course, she was absolutely beautiful!

Ceremony - ours was quick and to the point. Photographer was very kind and took around 200 pictures. The pictures were expensive, but we ended up purchasing them all to receive the slide show, images on CD, and all of the printed 5x7 and 8x10's.

Photos - We felt like Brittany and K-Fed with all of the misc pictures around the ship. Everywhere we went, people were taking pictures of us. The 'Formal' Pictures were nice, but some were very 1980's Glamour shots or High School Senior Picturesque.

Reception - everyone had fun with the open bar. We were at the reception for approx. 30 minutes before we left for photos. Disappointed in this since we wanted some time to eat/drink/be merry. They will serve the cake at dinner as well.

If you have specific questions, let me know while it is still fresh in my mind.

Of course, make notes on ALL contact information for the cruise (transportation, wedding coordinator, etc.). Also, do NOT allow yourself to get harassed by porters. Our coordinator has already filed a complaint due to the way that 'gratuities' were demanded.

Just got married on the Inspiration. Carnival did an excellent job. Pictures on board were not very good. EXPENSIVE. I bought a Nikon 10.2 digital and we had a friend take them for us on the beach in Cozumel. Much better. Had to get dressed agin but got to see her all dressed up again. I would strongly recomend this. We did an excursion to a beach. They let us change there. The whole wedding party. The pictures are no comparrison to the ship pictures. Hope this helps

Hi!

I wish I had some advice, but it seems I'm in the same boat you are right now. However, we are getting married soon before you... but I don't think I will get back in time to let you know how it goes... If I get any info before hand though, I'll be sure to post it!

Congrats!!!

Wedding onboard a Carniavl sip is "awsome" to say the least. We had 15 aboard. Left on 2/24/08 and married 2/29/08. Just AWSOME. They did it All! All we did was breath and drink. Kids were sooo good. Except for the "Idiots" 2 doors down that we and other cabins had to call security on several times for really bad language!! Please choose your language and behavier while on these ships...
My hat is off to Garfield,Henrietta,Kristinna,Gabor,Bianca, THE CHIEF (WOW). And to the person who took my camera (Shame on you, you took not only my but my kids memories.
THANK YOU CARNIVAL you trully are the best !!!! [/b]
