Plan—INTRODUCING OUR NEW Captain Performed At Sea Wedding Package
C elebrity Weddings is proud to announce the launch of our Captain performed weddings at sea. The sailor's knot is known for being easy to tie but hard to break. Now, guests who wish to be married at sea by the captains of their Celebrity Cruise ship can "tie" their own steadfast "knot" at sea. With the recent re-registration of all of Celebrity’s ships in Malta (with the exception of Expedition), government regulations have changed to allow for captains to perform legal marriages while the ships sail the seas of the world. These legal, captain-led wedding ceremonies are performed under the Maltese flag and complement our existing shipboard, shoreside and vow renewal offerings.

At Sea Wedding Guidelines
Civil marriages in Malta are regulated by the Marriage Act, 1975 (Chapter 255 of the Laws of Malta) which came into force on the 12th August 1975. Act III of 2008 which was published on the 1st of February 2008 (and brought into force on the 15th February 2008 via Legal Notice 78 of 2008), now allows for the possibility of marriages to be conducted by the Master of the vessel in international waters on board a passenger vessel which is registered in Malta.
The number of weddings that may be conducted are limited and based on the number of days the ship is in international waters and in accordance with the Master’s schedule. Wedding times and the public ceremony location will be set prior to sailing. The ship reserves to right to change a wedding date or time based on itinerary changes.
All couples will be required to complete their legal documentation and submit them to the wedding department no later than 10 weeks prior to sailing. All applicable fees will be paid prior to submitting the documents to the Marriage Registry. The bridal couple is responsible for verifying that all documents are correct. Any errors in the documents may result in additional fees. Fax copies are not accepted unless otherwise noted (please refer to your marriage license procedures).
Once the documents are sent to the Marriage Registry, all fees are non- refundable.
All photographs will be available for your viewing within 48 hours, at which time, you can select the Wedding photography package you wish to purchase (see our full brochure for pricing). Photographs are not available individually without purchase of one of the packages.
Due to the duties of the ship’s staff, At Sea ceremonies cannot be held on embarkation day/night. The cancellation policy for the At Sea package is the same as for other wedding packages.
