Ports of Call
MARRIAGE LICENSE OVERVIEW
The bridal couple is responsible for obtaining a valid marriage license from the port of call where they have selected to hold their wedding. “Celebrity Weddings” can assist in obtaining a marriage license in most ports of call for an additional processing fee. Once the wedding has been reserved, Celebrity will send the bridal couple detailed marriage license requirements. All applications and appropriate documents must be received sixty (60) days prior to the sail date to avoid late fees. All prices listed are starting package pricing and are in US Dollars. Please note that in some ports of call, the courts are closed on weekends as well as local and national holidays. Some may charge additional weekend or holiday fees. The marriage license must be presented to the Marriage Officiate prior to the ceremony. Please note that all licensing and holiday fees are non-refundable.
Wedding couples that reside in Europe who will have their wedding performed in the United States or St. Thomas may need to acquire an Apostille for an additional fee. The Apostille is verification from the United States government that the marriage license is a true and legal document. All couples should check with their local marriage bureau to see if this document is necessary for them to register the marriage in their country of residence.
Please note; Below are our Ports of Call where we can perform legal ceremonies, we can also perform Symbolic Ceremonies in most any Port of Call. Please contact your event manager for more details. All prices are subject to change, contact your event manager for a more complete list of pricing.
