Hafer - Answered a Question by Hamilton-Campbell (05 Dec 08 00:13)

We were onboard the Balmoral in November on the 28 day transatlantic cruise to/from the Caribbean and had a couple in our group who were renewing their marriage vows after 57 years. The captain performed the cermony , assisted by the cruise director...it was lovely. So to answer the question, I am not sure about an official marriage ceremony, but if you wanted to renew your marriage vows, I believe this can be arranged.

Not unless the rules have just changed.

I can just imagine Johan Dyrnes officiating. Could be the best thing since four weddings! He's a real sport but I don't think this is in his job description.

Some cruise lines- such as Princess and P&O have a licence to officiate weddings. I was recently married by the captain on the Sea Princess- dont know if Fred Olsen has licence.

The Captain on Celebrity ships can also now perform weddings FYI.

The much-missed Arne Solberg would have done a good job. Thor Fletten too!
