We have about 50 guests that will board with us prior to wedding.
We will be on the Pride from Long Beach, Oct. 2nd. I am told that they
can walk around the ship until the wedding is to start. Has anyone had
experiece with this. How far do we dare let them walk around and for
how long? I'm concerned that some will not watch the time and be late
to the ceremony. Help

Our wedding was on NCL's Majesty, our guest could walk around, but most hung out in the room where the wedding was held.

thank you, the wedding is on the Pride in one of the jazz clubs (too many guests
to have ceremony in the chapel) and what I've seen in webshot pix was just what
you refer to.....

I am getting married 2 weeks from today on the Voyager and we have 49 guests. They told us that the guests are free to roam the ship and will be told to go to the wedding 15 minutes prior to the ceremony. I would like to think that since they are there for the wedding they will keep an eye on the time so they don't miss it, but if they do I would have to figure they really came just to check out the ship, however I don't think that is the case. I never heard of anyone having that problem.

Good Luck!

your photos on this website upon your return. What ports are you visiting? We will
be visiting the Mexician Riv. I hope to be able to post photos as well.
Bon Voyage

We are visiting Bermuda, but when we get back we are taking another cruise a week later for our honeymoon and that is going to Panama Canal. I want some time alone with my new Hubby!

Best of Luck to your son and his Bride to be! I have not done the Mexican Riviera yet but it is on my list to get to one of these days.

I will post pictures when we get back and I hope you do the same I would love to see them!

we've done the Mex.Riv. 3 times now. Not that I like the ports all that much except that the 7 days is a really nice cruise and comfortable. It's familiar, too. Plus the fact that the port is only 1 hour away from our house which makes that an easy drive and also the prices are all that bad. Well, have a wonderful time on both cruises.
You are a lucky bride.
