Princess Cruises launches online honeymoon cruise registry
This feature allows couples to choose from a list of options they wish to enjoy on their honeymoon, from contributions to the cruise, drinks by the pool, specialty dining, relaxing spa treatments and shore excursions. All gifts are applied as an onboard credit to the couple’s stateroom account to use onboard during their honeymoon cruise. Couples can also create a wedding website to share photos and details about how they met, their engagement and wedding, e-mail their friends and family directing them to the registry and print out announcement cards.
When Princess launched its seagoing weddings programme in 1998, the cruise line made maritime and marriage history and turned this cruising myth into reality, by having the Captain join couples in marriage. Until that point, there had been a common misconception that any ship captain was empowered to join couples in matrimony, but in truth, no such ceremony was ever conducted on board a major cruise ship.
Today, Princess’ ‘Tie the Knot’ wedding programme has grown to not only offer these special at sea wedding ceremonies on its cruise ships, but also include fleet-wide harbour side ceremonies in embarkation ports or weddings ashore in select ports of call. Together these options have created one of the cruise industry’s most diverse and unique wedding programmes, offering the convenience of a wedding and honeymoon in one package that makes this milestone celebration easy and hassle free.
