If you go through the wedding department I think you will have to pay for a whole package and a per person price for the reception
Thank you so much for the advice. I am not going to go through Royal Romance because of both the package cost that you're talking about and the fact that I see everyone has had a very rough time working with them. I am hoping to reserve a lounge for two hours after dinner for a reception and then we will just go dance in the nightclub in our wedding formalwear. I figure it's kind of a funny way to end the night. Thanks so much for all of your help. You've all helped a ton!They no longer outsource Royal Romance so everything is in house. We got married on Allure in August and have nothing but positive things to say about the new Royal Romance. We got married on Day 1 in the Chapel and rented out Chops for our reception at night.
Definitely contact your TA if you want to reserve a lounge.
We've made various calls since August 2011 to try to get some questions answered and until the last couple of weeks, no returned calls. After b%*@&$#g (and I never complain) we were finally contacted by a specialist's assistant. He was trying to be helpful, but he did not have the answers we were looking for. They are a month behind we were told.
I would not recommend RCCL for any type of wedding at this point. The lack of communication is unacceptable.
Also, keep in mind, we were told that you can not take any wedding cake off the ship and no unity candles.
So far, the whole process has been very stressful and a disappointment............AND I'M THE GROOM!
I think the problem is they probably have one person for all these events. You have weddings, receptions, etc. The Oasis and Allure are so popular it is probably very common to have a cruiseship wedding. I can't imagine how many they have booked on those ships alone. Also, they are not wedding coordinators. They are just event planners.
They really need to get their act together. Luckily there are places like this where you can warn other people.
I am looking for some help! I am looking to get married on the Allure in Aug 2015 the dates are not out yet tho. I am wanting to get married on the ship at the port of st thomas then go to st john (trunk bay) for pictures afterwards. The only problem is all the reviews i have read are saying they don't give you your wedding time until 30 days before. Which is no use to us because it takes nearly an hour to get to trunk bay and back again so we really need to time the ferrys plus id like to have a photographer meet us at trunk bay i wouldn't be able to give them a time. am also worried if they give us a 3pm wedding there would be no chance of getting to st johns id really like my wedding about 11am. Has anyone been married onboard the allure at the port of st thomas?? and what time were you married?
Ps i am new to cruise crities this is my first post
