We are planning to get married next winter, leaving on the weekend of February 26th. We will be a group of about 30 from 1 year old to 85.

Hi mapoitras, Welcome to Cruise-Chat!

My apologies no one had welcomed you or helped with your question. One thing you should do is price the flights to each port, as it will be a huge factor with a group of 30. I am assuming you will be flying since coming from Canada.

I like Option #4 because I am partial to Port Canaveral, however I don't like all those sea days. Do you have an Option you are leaning to so far? Also make sure to contact the Wedding Dept. at Carnival for help if you need. HERE is a link to some Wedding information, there is also contact info near the bottom of the page.

All of your Options look wonderful, a lot of personal preferences come in to play though. Do like more ports or more sea days etc.

Welcome Aboard,

Dwayne

Hi mapoitras, welcome to Cruise-Chat! Congratulations on your up-coming wedding! I like options #1 and #2 the best, but that's just me. IslandCruz has brought up a GREAT point, air fare. It can be really expensive, especially for 30 people. If you have a good travel agent in your area, I highly recommend visiting them. They can ask the right questions to find the best cruise for you. They may also be able to get you better rates as a group.

Best wishes and please let us know what you decide!
