dcdiva brings up a good point; when I chose our venue, I picked something close to the ship pier; the Hyatt in Key West was within very easy walking distance, but I also provided cab vouchers for my...

Key West is a good, reliable port, especially if it's a regular itinerary (ports have a greater tendency to get cancelled or moved around on special / holiday /non-standard sailings). Plus its still...

I wanted a wedding cruise because I love cruising and I didn't want a traditional wedding at home. Stress was not in the equation in my choice.

However, if I had to work with RR/TWE, my stress...
