P&O have a Weddings at Sea package. We were on the Aurora last December - sailed from Southampton to Canaries and there were two weddings on board. Have a look at their website for info.

The weather was not particulary good and sailing across the Bay of Biscay was rough - 20 foot waves and high winds. In a 2 week cruise we probably had 2/3 days of sunshine the rest was cloudy but about 18 deg most of the time. Several days it rained. All of the ports we called at were reasonably close to the town centres but P&O have free shuttle buses if the distance is too far to walk. We only did one excursion from Cadiz to Seville which was a long way.

Fred.Olsen are the major operator in this area and they have a very good web site. I don't know if you can get married on a cruise ship,but you will probably be able to get your marriage blessed. Have a geat time and best wishes for your marriage.

It's a common misconception that sea captains can perform marriage ceremonies at sea. My advice to anyone is that you should make absolutely sure that any marriage contacted on or during a cruise will be recognised as legal in this country. Ask the specific question and get an affirmative answer before you even consider it.

It is perfectly legal to be married at sea by the Captain. It was not always so, but is fine now. The marriage is registered in Bermuda, and the marriage certificate takes approximately 6 weeks to come through.

It may well be legal, but is it recognised as legal in this country? That is vital, and it simply is not worth the risk unless you are 100% sure. Just remember that Mick Jagger claimed his marriage in Bali was not legal in this country.And not all captains can perform ceremonies, not all ships are registered in Bermuda.

It is certainly legal in this country, remember, not all ships marry people on board, but P & O offer a comprehensive service, after all we are not talking about getting hitched on a remote beach in Bali!!!

Royal Caribbean. Something for...

By Dean Michaelides

Every single year its seems like more and more ships are being released. 3-6 star 300 passengers to 6000 passengers there are hundreds of cruises out there now. My question is can anyone beat Royal Caribbean and do they have a ship for every one?I recently had a training with a Royal Caribbean rep and she advised there aim would be for cruise customers never to look elsewhere when it comes to cruising. A bit like Dubai for Holidays. There idea it to have such a wide range within there fleet f...
