Find Your Cruise
Hi, we went on Aurora in Oct 07 to the Med and renewed our vows on board. The package offered by P & O was really good value for money, the flowers were beautiful the champagne and nibbles plentiful and the cake gorgeous. We were contacted once on board by a member of staff who we met with to go through everything and make changes if we wanted. As we had kept it a secret from our children and friends we sailed with the staff went out of the way to ensure it stayed that way. Although there are two types of ceremony to choose from we had wanted to add some readings, poetry etc into the civil ceremony and before sailing had been told this was not possible, however once on board we mentioned it to Jacques who was taking care of everything and he checked with the captain and we were able to go ahead with what we had originally wanted to do. It was very touching as we were able to ask our children and friends to read these for us. All in all a wonderful time, which was carried out on a sea day, on a formal night, so lots of time to get ready (although unfortunately I was rather sea sick that day!) We were then escorted from our cabin to the Crow's Nest to meet our guests and then taken into a private room for the ceremony. My husband's view of course was that he thought he was up for parole - not resentencing!! I hope you have a wonderful, memorable and enjoyable time.
Thank you for the reply. A couple more questions you may be able to answer for me. Did you arrange the actual date before you went on board and did they give you an option of times available amd an option where it can be held. Its just we want to do it late afternoon so we cane go straight to dinner afterwards.
