First of all, we should note that Celebrity Cruises performs various types of ceremonies, including legal and same-sex ones.
After you decided to get married on a Celebrity Cruises sailing, the first step you should take is to review all the information and begin planning your most important day.

Then begin to plan your wedding attire, flowers, music, and other pleasant things.
Then goes a very important stage of obtaining your marriage license. Since there are different requirements for different ports, you should check the rules for the wedding location you chose. If the cruise line arranges your marriage license, you should submit all the documents in time.
