A young couple Cathrin and Andrew had the perfect plan to go on a cruise and get married in the Bahamas on a tropical island. On October 18, 2015 hey embarked on Carnival Sunshine with plans to get married on Half Moon Cay on October 21. 

Unfortunately due to weather, the ship was unable to tender to the private island and Carnival Sunshine spent the day at sea. The couple contacted John Heald (the senior cruise director of Carnival Cruise Lines and a blogger for the line) on Facebook and told about the situation. Heald contacted Jamie Dee, the cruise director on Carnival Sunshine. Jamie decided to do something she had never done before, perform a symbolic wedding at sea. The staff on Carnival Sunshine pulled out all the stops for their first Lido Deck wedding ceremony.

Andrew and Cathrin, along with 29 family and friends, invited the entire ship to their ceremony on the lido deck.  While the wedding wasn’t a legal ceremony, the bride told Jamie “you made my wedding incredible”.
