  1. Welcome back!!! So happy to read you had a great wedding. What issues did you have , something easily rectified I hope?
  2. Oh no, I'm so sorry to read your post Apollonia14. I'll keep good thoughts for you ... 😢
  3. Congrats, When is your date and what ship are you on?
  4. Congratulations to you both!!!! enjoy your honeymoon 🥂
  5. We are getting married May 30th 2022 on Caribbean Princess. Princess cruise line. Our first stop is Princesses private island on Sun, day before the wedding, then St. Thomas the day after the wedding on Tuesday, and finally St. Kitts on Thursday which i'm very excited about. It's a 7 day cruise Sat to Sat so there's a few sea days as well. We actually mailed out the invites yesterday afternoon with an RSVP date of March 1st. This gives those who haven't booked yet time to do so, and make plans with work, etc. We sent 22 total. Of those we expect several no's and estimate a head count between 10-16 people. But who knows. Time will tell, right? There's just a few more things for you both the get through, I can understand your fiance' being so nervous. You've come such a long way!! I'm sending you positive vibes everything works out great 🤞
  6. I am so excited for you both! Two weeks from today you'll officially be married. 👰🤵 That's awesome you two are the first couple to be married on the ship. Hopefully the captain makes an announcement over the PA system to let everyone know:} We've still got 7 months to go and I can't wait. I can only imagine how you both are feeling. If you get a chance come back here before you leave and let us know how you're doing. If not, I wish you a fantastic wedding and a wonderful honeymoon. 🥂
  7. What are you two doing for a 'cocktail hour' after your ceremony? We are doing an hour for pics, then just dinner in a specialty restaurant for everyone.
  8. So happy to hear you don't need to wear your masks. That's awesome!! As far as pics around the ship, maybe they'll tell you to wear them as you walk around but once you're in a spot for the pics you'll be able to remove them. Three weeks away for you two, you're at the home stretch. Are you nervous, how is your fiance' doing? I can only imagine the feelings of excitement around everything. Our planning is going well. We're still in a holding pattern of sorts. We're bringing our own music for our cocktail hour so i've been searching YouTube for classical music pieces we want to use for our playlist. My guy is in charge of that. He's much better with the music on your phone stuff that me. :} Since it's only an hour it shouldn't be too hard to put something together.
  9. I just realized I forgot to ask if you two did itinerary cards/programs for your wedding day? If so, how did you word them? We are leaning towards a single sheet of cardstock paper with the essentials only. Time and place of ceremony, cocktail hour and dinner. We plan on putting them in the welcome bags for the out of town guests who come in ahead of time. Since that will be just about everyone who's attending we aren't worried about missing anyone.
  10. Hi Cheif, I am a bit on the introverted side as well, and I agree it can be very daunting getting on a ship alone while everyone around you is happily chatting away with their companions. It used to make me a uncomfortable until I read a quote that made me stop and think about things. The quote was "its none of my business what anyone thinks of me" For some reason it just rang true to me and made things easier for me. Now when I cruise as a solo, I don't worry about what someone 'sees' when they look at me alone, I think about how all those groups or couples have to accommodate each other, or deal with bad moods, or not wanting to do the same things, while I get to do or not do anything I choose, anytime I want. As far as talking to strangers. Sometimes i'll approach people if they are doing something i'm interested in and ask a question or two. If they aren't receptive I just thank them and move along. If they are, I'll stay and chat a bit. No harm no foul. I'd say, go on as many cruises as you'd like and don't worry what someone else says about it. You need to like your own company before you can be good company for someone else. That's how I feel.
  11. Hi Thjeepster, Was wondering if you heard back for Royal yet regarding facemasks on your wedding day? Hopefully they give you the green light to go without them.. 🤞 I was also curious about how your fiance' was transporting her wedding dress on embarkation day, but then I noticed you're in Florida so i'm guessing it's not a big issue. I have to fly so it's being rolled in acid free tissue paper and put in my carry on. 😲
  12. HI all, We have 2 cruises booked next year. We were logged into our May Cruise and ordered our Medallions no problem. My question is, will the medallion for our January cruise automatically be ordered as well? I tried going into the January cruise in the app and checking but it doesn't seem to want to be helpful right now. thanks
  13. Hi all, Does anyone happen to know if Carnival loyalty points are recognized by Princess Cruises. I'm getting married on Princess and several of my guests are pretty close to top tier loyalty members on Carnival. I'm hoping they can use their status while onboard. Thanks in advance
  14. You be safe as well. Not for nothing, I feel if you have a wedding onboard, you should be given a ton of loyalty points over and above the ones you normally just get for cruising. After all, you are bringing a bunch of people with you for the week and Royal is reaping the rewards for that😁
