Hello everyone!! I am new to this board in hopes of finding some answers!

My fiancé and I have been looking at cruise weddings for a long time, I think since we first got engaged because we both have large families, lol. We don't want everyone there but there are some we do want there that we know won't be able to cruise with us for a week. It's a lot to ask for.

We live in NJ so we can do the Embarkation Day Wedding with RCCL right at Cape Liberty. It won't be until 2020 so we have a lot of time but I just needed to start doing some research before I make my final decision. I am not a planner and don't even wan't to plan my own wedding, is that terrible? I've seen a lot of pros and cons about it but not really any actual stories from people who have done it. Is there anyone here that would like to share with me their experiences, prices, and maybe some photos?! It would truly help us out. Thanks in advanced everyone! ❤️

I'm doing an embarkation day wedding, on NCL Escape. We're getting married over Memorial Day Weekend, so we're just over 90 days away.

I think RCCL and NCL use the same wedding planner company, Royal Ocean Events. I've been working with Tiffany there, and so far she has been great at replying to emails and answering any of our questions as they come up.

Some basic details: We're getting married while the ship is docked in NYC, before it sails to Bermuda. Currently, we're at about 55 guests, with 12-14 of those sailing on the cruise. We booked a hotel block in Queens the night before the wedding and we're having a little welcome party there since most people are coming in from out of town and the wedding reception is very short for embarkation day weddings. (Why Queens? Because booking event space in Manhattan was SUPER expensive. It was more cost effective to book the hotel in queens and hire a shuttle bus to bring everyone from the hotel to the cruise terminal)

I'll be posting a full recap after the wedding. Let me know if you have any questions in the meanwhile!
