Cunard Weddings and Vow Renewals

What is more romantic than getting married on a magnificent ocean liner like Queen Mary 2 or one her sisters, the elegant Queen Victoria or the newest addition to Cunard Line's fleet, Queen Elizabeth?  Just imagine you and your spouse-to-be saying your vows in a romantic ceremony conducted by the Ship's Captain.

Or renew your vows in a ceremony officiated by the Captain. 

Choose from a myriad of options to create a day that is all about you: start off with a Champagne and Caviar breakfast served in the comfort of your stateroom or suite.  Relax and prepare yourself for your ceremony in the Canyon Ranch SpaClub onboard Queen Mary 2 or in the Royal Spa on Queen Victoria or Queen Elizabeth. 

Picture the bride, escorted by White Star bellmen to a beautifully appointed venue.  Here, while at sea, the Ship's Captain will conduct your ceremony.  And whether it is just the two of you or a small group of family and friends or a larger group, Cunard will ensure that your wedding day is exactly what you wish for: choose from a superb variety of wedding menus, extensive wine lists and a host of finishing touches.

Your dedicated onboard Wedding Coordinator will help ensure impeccable service.

A few details about weddings onboard Cunard Line 

To help you decide whether getting married on a Cunard ocean liner is right for you, let us provide you with some details:

  • Weddings are available on all three Cunard ships on voyages of 7 nights or longer. 
  • For legal reasons, weddings can only take place on sea days, which makes the Queen Mary 2 Transatlantic Crossing an ideal and romantic option, although other destinations are wonderful too.
  • Ceremonies are available at either 11:00am or 3:30pm on selected days. 
  • Only one wedding will be conducted per ship per day.
  • Wedding reservations must be made at least three months before departure to ensure sufficient time to arrange legalities - and to avoid disappointment as so few wedding slots are available on Cunard.
  • As Cunard's ships are registered in Bermuda, you will be married under Bermudan law.  
  • Wedding packages start at $2,500 and license fees at $575.00.
  • Many wedding options are available, including photography and videography services, spa services, gifts, wedding music, flowers and cakes, wedding lunches or dinners. 
  • Cruise Holidays will help you book your cruise fare, airline tickets and other travel-related arrangements. 
  • Please review the details and terms and conditions in the Cunard wedding brochure.
