Hello, we got married October 08 on the Sun Princess and it was the best experience you can imagine, we were treated like royalty and the captain who married us was excellent, we would reccomend it to anybody thinking about it
Mr and Mrs Moore.
Have a look at this report
It is a common belief that ship's captains can marry people on their ships. This is completely untrue. Whatever procedure you decide upon, I do strongly urge you to make sure that any marriage you ciontemplate outside your homeland will actually be recognised as legal.
That may be true under UK law. P&O have re-registered their ships to Hamilton Bermuda to enable weddings at sea and thus P&O weddings are carried out under Bermundan law which is apparently recognised in UK. The P&O website explains the legal position but as you say it would be wise to double check. http://www.pocruises.com/Experience/Wedding.axd.
Depending on the weather you could have some ups and downs! Sorry!
