This is my first time on the board, so please forgive me if I missed a post about this:
I am trying to plan a wedding for Labor Day 2013 on the Carnival Ecstacy. I am getting a little overwhelmed because:
1) I have called Carnival twice and was supposed to get additional materials emailed to me, to no avail
2) I am trying to decide between two locations but often feel rushed on the phone with Carnival
3) I am not sure ifI am even asking all the right questions when I call
SO, hopefully someone here can help! Basically I am trying to choose between getting married in Nassau or Half Moon Cay. From what Iunderstand, Nassau sounds better because there are more options and flexibility, but Half Moon Cay seems very low maintenance and beautiful. Are there any brides who have experienced the Nassau or HMCay wedding?
Also, I would like a reception, but dont want it to be repetitive (i.e. go to the reception to eat and dance when we can go to the formal dinner and dance afterwards-- does that make sense?). I am thinking I will do the beach Nassau wedding with a 2hr receptionand dj afterwards. Does anyone have sample pricing for this? Also, how does seating work if you are not booking as a group? I wanted to book the cruise as a group, but group reservations seems so inflexible that it is looking easier to just book individually. HOWEVER, I was hoping our guests could sit at the same tables during formal dining. Has anyone gone through this?
This is my first month and a 1/2 of planning and, with all the info I've gotten, I still feel lost!
Help me, Carnival Brides!
