Married Onboard Royal Caribbean Intl.

Weddings can be incredibly stressful, both emotional and financially. Alternatively, getting married on a cruise ship is the ultimate destination wedding. It's an affordable, efficient, and fun way to combine your nuptials with a honeymoon for you and a vacation for your guests. Whether you want to elope at sea during sunset, bring your entire family to watch you exchange vows on a Caribbean beach, or trek to the top of an Alaskan glacier to say "I do," a cruise ship wedding can make it happen. 

But what's it really like?  Here's the quick lowdown from Bursch Travel clients, Brady and Peyton, who were recently married aboard Royal Caribbean's Allure of the Seas.
