Renewal of Vows On Board
For couples that would like to say their wedding vows while at sea, Holland America Line offers an onboard Renewal-of-Vows package. As part of the package, the guests will receive flowers in their stateroom, and invitations are made available to invite guests to the ceremony and celebration.
The couple also receives:
•A 10x7 activity sheet
•Dinner for 2 one evening in the Pinnacle Grill
•A celebration featuring music, champagne, wine and hors d'oeuvres served by Holland America Line's five-star staff
The onboard honeymoon, anniversary and Renewal-of-Vows packages may be booked through Holland America Line's Ship Services Department, (800) 541-1576.
Renewal of Vows at Half Moon Cay
Guests that visit Half Moon Cay, the company's own island paradise, on Holland America Line Caribbean and Panama Canal cruises may renew their wedding vows on the island in a private, traditional Bahamian chapel nestled in a garden overlooking the sea. This is a more casual ceremony than on board and participants are encouraged to wear their favorite tropical attire. Champagne and cake are served after the ceremony. Each couple is photographed on the island and the photo is delivered to their stateroom in a souvenir frame. Arrangements for renewal of vows at the chapel may be made through the Guest Relations Manager at the Front Office on board the ship.
