Weddings and commitment ceremonies

With more than a century’s worth of love stories, where better than a Cunard Queen to begin married life?

Your ceremony, your way

Picture an immaculately dressed bellhop escorting you to the ceremony room. Imagine your ship’s Captain officiating proceedings. Then after the main event, see yourself arriving at a beautiful champagne reception, set against the backdrop of the sparkling ocean. From enjoying your first dance in the grandeur of the Queens Room, to a honeymoon that starts the second you say “I do,” a wedding on a Cunard Queen offers a certain je ne sais quoi that’s hard to find anywhere else.

Your ceremony is all about you and your wishes, and at Cunard, we’ll do whatever we can to make sure your dreams come true. That’s why your dedicated Cunard Ceremonies Specialist is on hand to help ensure everything runs as smoothly as possible.

After your ceremony, perhaps you’d like to toast the occasion with an elegant drinks reception, tended by our own white-gloved waiters. Enter a room full of smiles and tears of joy, before treating your guests to champagne and canapés. Why not organize something a little different? Arrange for our resident musicians to serenade your guests, with a soundtrack curated personally for you.


You’re already unpacked. Settled in. You’ve married your best friend, and are looking forward to the days, months, and years ahead. A wedding or commitment ceremony on a Cunard Queen not only offers an unforgettable setting for one of the happiest days of your life, but also a one-of-a-kind honeymoon.

Maybe you’ve chosen to get married during a week-long Mediterranean cruise, or perhaps you’re sailing to the white sandy shores of the Caribbean, or the South Pacific. No matter where you go, you’ll no doubt make all kinds of special memories to fill this next chapter together.

Ceremonies on Queen Anne

Whether you are beginning your married life together or reaffirming your commitment to each other, Queen Anne offers a truly elevated nuptial experience, with a setting you won’t find anywhere else at sea. Imagine walking up the aisle in her dedicated wedding venue, where the ocean’s majesty provides the perfect backdrop for your special moment. Afterwards, enjoy time with your guests in an elegant lounge reserved exclusively for your celebration. Toast with refined cocktails or host an indulgent multi-course reception.

However you wish to celebrate, Queen Anne’s dedicated private function room can be fully personalized to your vision. With state of the art facilities, all the delights of our Cunard ceremony packages, and of course, our signature White Star Service, a wedding or vow renewal on Queen Anne promises an intimate, unforgettable occasion as we officially welcome you into your next glorious chapter.

What’s included

Our ceremony package offers everything you need for your dream celebration at sea. Mouth-watering menus. A well-traveled wine list. Boutonniere and bouquets from our on board florist. We’ll even throw in a dedicated Cunard ceremonies specialist to oversee every detail, so you can savor every moment of your day, and the days that surround it.

“It was perfection from the start, from having printed invites – even though we didn’t have many guests – to the room, which looked spectacular. As soon as I walked in, I saw the beautiful flowers and my bridal bouquet was gorgeous. It was lovely to be escorted from the stateroom by the Bell Boy – as he took my arm, I felt really relaxed.” – Denise Maloney, married on board Queen Mary 2.

Ceremonies can be arranged on days at sea either at 11:00 a.m. or 3:30 p.m. If you have more than 20 guests attending, we ask that you reserve the 11:00 a.m. ceremony.
