I read a review some place that some one did do their reception at chops. They loved it. It was not thru royal romance though(I think).

Are you getting married on the ship on embarkation day?

He had our wedding reception at Chops on Allure this past August. We rented out Chops the night of Day 1 and had 60+ guests. We were told we could do whatever we wanted from 5:30pm - till close. This all took a bit of persistence, but we got the following all done. We had the room arranged how we wanted. We had a projector and screen brought in for a slideshow. We even had a DJ and dance floor put in just for us! The cruise director has become friends of ours and he even said we were the first full out complete wedding he has seen on Allure! The Captain and first officers even stopped by for a bit and took photos with us. Everyone had a blast. Of course the food was excellent. It was funny to see people peek thru the glass to see what exactly was going on inside.

If you want to book Chops you would have to go thru your travel agent or RCCL directly. Royal Romance doesn't handle this type of event. If you do want your wedding cake to be served at the reception you would have to order that thru Royal Romance and tell them to bring it to Chops.

If you have any questions please let me know.

What was the price per person? It was one flat fee. You can invite as much as you want for the same price. Every ship the buyout price is different. I think for us it was $4k or $5k.

Did people dance? We have out going family and friends so the dance floor was always filled. We even did the traditional first dance, garter/bouquet toss, bride/father dance etc.. It was as much as a regular wedding as it could have been

Did you have open bar or liquor? The don't offer open bar for is so we did foot the bill for all the alcohol. We also did buy 2 wine packages and put bottles on everyone table. We had so much left over we all used it througout the week


Did you book the do thru royal romance?We booked everything except the Chops reception through Royal Romance

How do I start the process of ths? If you want to do your reception at a specialty restaurant you need to book it through your travel agent or RCCL directly

Did u have centre pieces or decorations at the table? We did not have centerpieces, we felt it would be too much of a hassle to worry about bringing all that on the ship. They did place small "candles" all around the tables and used the flower settings they use on a regular night. We had luggage tag favors for everyone and also brought a bunch of party favors (LED light up glasses, flashing rings and pins.

Do you have pictures of this?Here are a few I quickly found

FYI- the Chapel and Pinnacle Lounge will be removed from the ship when it goes into dry dock in Sept 2014. Just a heads up if you were interested in ether.

Just called today for info and they never mentioned losing the chapel, wasn't decided on it but looking at it. I was hoping for an outdoor ceremony, helipad maybe, but Royal does not do outside weddings and they try to keep them early afternoon, I would of liked an evening ceremony....

Some at sea weddings are as early as 10:00 am, which is early IMO on a sea day. If I hear any other news I'll post it.
