Carnival Destiny Rules The Waves – Barbadians voyaging for a seafaring Marriage, Pt 2/2
Not so long ago, I mentioned how the Barbados Water Authority‘s resident Corporate Communications Specialist changed her last name for good and did so via a cruise-ship wedding.
What I learned while waiting for the ceremony to start is that hers was one of like FOUR weddings that day!
When you look at it, once funding is possible, a cruiseline marriage is not only sweet and romantic – but cost effective and headache reducing.
In essence, the ceremony and reception are centralised.
When the guests have all staggered away, you don’t have to worry about the clean up, that’s part of the trip anyhow.
Then, you go straight from “I Do,” to your honeymoon still onboard and where the phrase suddenly becomes “I Scr —,” uh, ok …. let’s keep this entry G-Rated, LOL!
As for using the Carnival Destiny, it is magnificent – this is a floating city where everything is thought of casinos, jewellery stores, restaurants, nightclubs, gyms and so on.
Their elevators look like something from Flash Gordon, and the view from like Deck 5 to the ground is well-designed, not to create a sense of vertigo, but a wish you were down there in the action, be it small or large.
There is even artwork to tempt you to add to your expenses by investing in one of the intriguing scenarios.
Even travelling to and from the boat is an adventure, the views are totally awe-inspiring… No wonder Odysseus created what would later be known as an Odyssey, every one should do it at least once in their lives – may God grant for me and my household to be so lucky!
