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!!!

Dont miss your ship.

By Dawn Gardener

For some reason, there seems to be more and more stories of cruise guests missing their ship when in port. I am on several cruise pages via Facebook and have heard this a lot recently where guests comment on how the ship departed leaving guests on shore because they didn’t get back in time. Last year there was the famous you tube video going around of the couple that left their kids on the ship whilst they went on shore and then missed it as it departed from Nassua with her screami...

If Carlsberg did Cruises!

Happy Monday to everyone! You’ve all heard the saying from Carslberg, “If Carslberg Did………………” Well what if Carlsberg did cruises? Or if you could invent or design your ultimate cruise what would it be like?If I was given control or designing a cruise, my first priority would have to be a rugby pitch! Most cruises if not all have some form of sports court, such as Basketball, football, but what if they had a rugby pitch! Now rugby is...

Well I have just returned from my 5th visit to Eurodisney with my family . Yet again it didn’t disappoint.There was 11 of us in total and we stayed in the Dream Castle just outside the gates and it was great !! We were up at 6.30 every morning and in the parks by 9 am impressingly first in the queue to get in on some days. Even though it was February it was still busy so we needed to fast pass some of the ride which always comes in handy. We were very lucky as we had a few days of glori...
