What is included in the Weddings or Commitment Ceremony at Sea package?

With more than a century’s worth of love stories, where better than a Cunard Queen to begin married life?
Picture an immaculately dressed bellhop escorting guests to the ceremony room. Imagine the ship’s Captain officiating proceedings. Then after the main event, the guests head to a beautiful champagne reception, set against the backdrop of the sparkling ocean. From enjoying their first dance in the grandeur of the Queens Room, to a honeymoon that starts the second they say, "I do", a wedding on a Cunard Queen offers a certain je ne sais quoi that’s hard to find anywhere else.
