A bride and groom celebrate their marriage on board a P&O Cruises ship

A P&O Cruises Wedding at Sea is the perfect way to celebrate your special day and take the first few steps into your new life together. From magnificent venues, flowers and Champagne to invitations, music and seating plans, we’ve thought of everything to make your special day as wonderful and stress-free as possible so you don’t have to worry about a thing. The only hard part will be choosing your dream destination: from the magical Caribbean to the glorious Mediterranean, the world is your oyster. Then you can sit back and relax as we bring your vision to life.


Planning ahead

We’ll be with you all the way, from early planning to the final finishing touches on the day. Your Personal Cruise Expert will help you plan your Wedding at Sea when you book, taking into account your party size and choice of venue. We can even send you special invitations to give out to your guests, and provide thank-you notes afterwards to write from the comfort of your cabin.


Arriving on board

From the minute you step on board, we’ll make you feel special. Enjoy a complimentary bottle of Champagne in your cabin and the dedicated attention of your personal Wedding Coordinator, who is there to take care of the details and help make your day stress free.


Wonderful food and wine

No celebration is complete without fabulous food, from elegant canapés and wedding buffets to traditional fine dining luncheons and dinners devised by our team of P&O Cruises Food Heroes. Our skilled chefs, bakers and pastry chefs will cater to your every need – including making your wedding cake. And you can toast the occasion with a fabulous selection of wines and fizz.

The main event

What could be more memorable than having your ceremony conducted by the Captain in a stunning venue with vistas of the sea?
