I am both excited and terrified to begin my first live Blog here of my first ever Star Class sailing and also….our wedding! I can only hope it is HALF as good as the amazing bloggers I read religiously here! 48 DAYS! Here we go! The Story- My husband and I (I will explain!) booked this cruise for our wedding 2 YEARS ago during a Black Friday sale at an amazing price! We both LOVE cruising…so much so that we have a YouTube channel called BoosCruize so it seemed natural that we would choose to tie the knot in a small ceremony on the high seas! So after much research we decided on the Star Loft Suite 1720 on Oasis Of The Seas! This suite had a HUGE rectangular balcony that could fit guests and also give us the ocean view we wanted….and a Genie to help us pull it all off! What could go wrong?!? Enter…COVID As you can imagine we basically needed a new pair of britches every other day for the last two years as things changed. It’s a good thing I buzz cut my head or I’d probably be bald and NOT by choice LOL A year later we weren’t even sure if this cruise would happen but we also KNEW we wanted to be married. So when a company came to us and asked to throw us a huge West Coast “David Tutera” style wedding in Hollywood that will be published for magazines we obviously said YES! We now have two bi-coastal weddings Lol It was amazingly gorgeous but nothing was our choice. It was all chosen for us….right down to our tuxes. We feel BEYOND blessed but it also wasn’t what we had in our head two years ago. So now here we are….our guest list of 50 has gone down to 12 due to covid complications. Are we upset? HECK NO! We completely understand and are going to have the time of our LIVES on a gorgeous ship surrounded by people who love us! We can’t wait! Who: We are an LA couple. Jarell is an international Flight attendant (yaasss benefits!) and I am an actor who just moved from NYC in time for a pandemic to close Hollywood Where: We are sailing on the Oasis Of The Seas out of Miami in the Star Loft Suite 1720 with stops at Coco Cay, St.Thomas, and St. Maarten When: We sail November 7th-14th, 2021 I think that covers most of the back story and introductions! So happy to meet you all and take you along with us on this very special journey that is over 2 years in the making! Can’t wait to see who our Genie will be! For good measure I have included a photo of the happy grooms from our West Coast Wedding!
Will be going on Anthem in 19 days with my daughter (17 months). 50+ friends & family going for my brothers wedding. Best excursion recommendations and things to do on the ship for toddlers? First time cruising with a little one.... thanks!
Hi! My name is Gail. I booked my cruise for next spring. However, we are going super low key for our wedding and budget. While we are all booking (up to 40 people) we have decided not to go through RCCL. We are going to get married at port the night before by my father in-law at the hotel, who is a ordained minister. We will be technically married before walking on the cruise ship. I do not want the pressure of buying the photo package that comes with the wedding package. I also feel that a ceremony and a cake slicing is not worth the few thousand that I was quoted. My question is... Do you think the cruise line will give us grief if we preform a ceremony on board while sailing? We just don't want all of the extras that are not included without a huge price. We are going to find a place to get married, have a photographer of our own, and even just book at one of the specialty dinners for our reception. We know a night of dancing and fun will follow. I need advice about how the cruise line will handle a bride on a sail day. Will they give me crap about how its not legal, or will I be congratulated like all the other brides? I am just worried now that all my plans are in motion. I cam't wait to hear your thoughts.
