Fleetwide event marks CCL-Carnival’s largest Vow Renewal at Sea

Thousands of couples symbolically renewed their vows this Valentine’s Day, while sailing on CCL-Carnival Cruise Line voyages, during special ceremonies virtually officiated by Shaquille O’Neal (Chief Fun Officer).

Altogether, the unique fleetwide event marked the company’s largest-ever Vow Renewal at Sea.

Couples across CCL’s fleet took part in onboard ceremonies while the liners were at sea and docked in destinations like Nassau, Cozumel, Vallarta, St Maarten, and Grand Turk.

An onboard reception followed each ceremony, with a DJ, dancing, and a champagne toast honoring the newly renewed couples/wishing love and happiness for all.

The cruise line gives thousands of passengers each year the chance to make memories that last a lifetime with ceremonies at sea through the "Weddings by Carnival" program. 

Christine Duffy (CCL's President) said their wedding and vow renewal offerings were expansive, and the dedicated team of professional planners could "help handle every detail with care, from the music and decor to the dessert."

"Guests can choose ceremonies at sea, in port at beautiful destinations, or even at the ship’s homeport ahead of their cruise so friends and family who aren’t sailing can attend the event."
