Just got back on line and realize you are leaving in about an hour and a half! Felt really jealous then realized as you are getting off the ship, I'll be getting on! I am so excited. I know you'll have a great time. I'll be looking for you as I wait to board .
We can compare notes when I get back.

Hi Caeggy, welcome to Cruise-Chat!
Here is a link to Royal's website. There is a phone number you can call to find out all the ins and outs.

Here is my dilema. I have been in contact with the royal
caribbean wedding and they have sent me the info. it is
very priceee....starting at $2500.00. I emailed RCC to see
what other options there were. A suggestion was to invite
an officiant to cruise with us, or see if we know someone on
the ship or can find someone sailing this cruise who would
marry the kids. We are sailing July 5, on Monarch of the Seas,
first time on RCC, we are past guests of Carnival (7 cruises)
The kids have their heart set on getting married on the ship
we are sailing out of Port Canaveral.

Actually, $2500 is not a bad price at all. Some friends of mine married in St. Thomas while on their cruise and it was much more than that. You would have to find someone that had legal rights to marry your children at sea. There is all kinds of legal loopholes when you're not on land. You're in international waters and would need to find out all the laws governing that. You could check with the islands you'll be visiting, but I seriously doubt you'll find anything under $3000. The reason they were married in St. Thomas was that they are part of the US, so they took the US marriage license, which is another thing you have to take into consideration.

If the kids have their hearts set on it, there's not much you can do but bite the bullet or find someone that could legally perform the ceremony. Good luck!

You'd have to find someone legally authorized to perform weddings in Florida or at Nassau. I was just looking at the Bahamian requirements and they are quite limiting. They cannot perform weddings in international waters. Captains of some cruise ships on some cruise lines can perform at-sea weddings, but Royal Caribbean is not among them. Ships registered in Malta and Bermuda are okay since those islands laws allow Captains to perform weddings.

The ceremony would be held while the ship was
in Port Canavral; So if an officiant could
board the ship just long enough to perform the
ceremony or if a minister is sailing on that
exact cruise and we could somehow ask if they
would consider this.

The Royal Caribbean Wedding department should be able to assist you with getting a local officiate. My friend's daughter was married in 2003 on the Carnival Victory in Miami. They are of the Lutheran faith and wanted Crystal married by a Lutheran pastor. Carnival's wedding department handled all the details for the wedding. It cost a little extra to have a local Lutheran pastor instead of the wedding departments officiate. The Pastor only came on the ship to perform the wedding. He didn't have to sail on the cruise.

Another option would be to get married in a family setting at home prior to the cruise and then have a nice ceremony at sea or on one of the islands if they could arrange it...

Some caveats: They can't answer questions about pricing. They won't be able to view every category of cabin and can't answer questions about specific cabins. And with 24 dining options and countless bars and lounges, they won't be able to sample them all.

I'll start things off with my question:

How will the paperless bar receipt process work?
