Wedding Packages

We’ll help you create a wedding day as fluid as the ocean; as beautiful as the scenery, as romantic as the sunset


The P&O Cruises Weddings at Sea package means a heavenly day of love and laughter for you. We’re sure you have a picture in your head of how you’d like your wedding day to be. We’re here to help ensure the dream in your head comes true. We understand it can all feel a bit daunting to arrange too, but you can rely on our knowledge and attention to detail to make it all as stress-free as possible.


Choose your perfect venue

Weddings at Sea are available on many of the ships in our fleet. Whether you’re seeking a sense of tradition or the contemporary, a family-friendly atmosphere or a ship that’s exclusively for adults, we can help.


Your own personal onboard wedding coordinator

The moment you step on board, our professional Wedding Coordinator will help you organise all the details that’ll make your day really special and memorable.


The days before

You want to feel special during every day of your wedding cruise, not just on the day itself. So, a bottle of Champagne and flowers will be waiting in your cabin to celebrate the start of your special cruise. You can treat yourself to all sorts of indulgences on board in the days leading up to your wedding, too. (Read on to discover what delights await in the spa and salon as you count down to your big day...) Then, when it arrives, our staff will take care of all the little details. As everything you could possibly want or need is a short stroll from your cabin, you can enjoy your day without any of the usual worries about getting from the ceremony to the reception either. Even better, your honeymoon can begin from the moment you say ‘I do’.


The main event

Your wedding ceremony should be everything you wish for, so we provide the heart of this within the package and let you add the extras that make the day truly yours; from bouquets to buttonholes and cakes to photography. Held in a private venue, with the scent of fresh flowers and soft music drifting through the air, your Captain* will conduct your ceremony. When you sign the register, there’ll be a Champagne toast (the first of many, no doubt). Your witnesses can be your choice of any two adults aged 18 and over. However, if your wedding is to be more intimate, with just the two of you, two of our ship’s company will be honoured to act as your witnesses.


Invitations and thank you notes

Before you set sail, we can send you wedding invitations so you can send personal invitations to join your celebration. Your Wedding Coordinator can also arrange for Thank You notes to be delivered to your cabin once you’re on board.


Pressing services

If your outfits need pressing before your wedding, as the wedding couple you enjoy this service free of charge. Please ask your on board Wedding Coordinator to arrange this service for you. (Just do be aware, we may not be able to offer the pressing service on garments of a particularly delicate and/or intricate nature.)


The finer details

Discuss your planned wedding party size and venue seating with your Personal Cruise Expert when you book. Then, it’s all in the detail on the day. So talk through every tiny aspect with your Wedding Coordinator once you’re on board. Got a favourite song which holds a special meaning for you? You are welcome to bring your own wedding music or we can provide a traditional selection for you. Or, perhaps you’d like a member of your wedding party to read a piece of poetry or prose during your ceremony? Just let us know. Finally, if you’d like to have commemorative items engraved, we advise doing it when you get back, as itinerary changes are possible.
