Our Wedding Cakes

Well, we hear they are pretty yummy. We’ll let you decide; there are cake flavours such as carrot and lemon. We only listed a few to get your taste buds watering.

Of course we have the traditional flavours of chocolate and vanilla too. Add fillings like coconut, strawberries, or chocolate ganache finished with a white buttercream frosting. Your wedding cake will be baked fresh the day of your wedding.

Photography

A longing glance, spontaneous laugh, sentimental tears, creating treasured memories with family and friends; our professional wedding photographers are dedicated to their art of capturing your once-in-a-lifetime moments.

Our photo wedding collections and storybooks were created to tell your love story, while tailored to all budgets.

All wedding packages include photography services. Your prints will be edited while onboard and made available for purchase before you disembark at the end of the cruise.

Entertainment

From calling all the single ladies to a special father/daughter dance or your first dance as husband and wife, our Entertainment Team will keep you hopping and rocking.

For your guests, the highlights are witnessing your ceremony, eating and hitting the dance floor. We’ll help you plan everything from music genres to DJ Hosts, while ensuring “your song” is included.

Live entertainment options are available on a first come/first serve basis for those couples that have purchased a reception package.
