Carnival Guests Renew Vows In Ceremonies Officiated by Shaquille O’Neal

Carnival Vows by Shaq

Thousands of couples are symbolically renewing their vows this Valentine’s Day aboard the Carnival Cruise Line fleet during special ceremonies virtually officiated by Chief Fun Officer Shaquille O’Neal.

“Our wedding and vow renewal offerings are expansive, and our dedicated team of professional planners can help handle every detail with care, from the music and decor to the dessert. Guests can choose ceremonies at sea, in port at beautiful destinations, or even at the ship’s homeport ahead of their cruise so friends and family who aren’t sailing can attend the event,” said Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line.

The onboard ceremonies are taking place while the ships are at sea and docked in a number of destinations such as Nassau, Puerto Vallarta, Cozumel, Grand Turk, and St. Maarten. Each ceremony is followed by a reception with a DJ, dancing and a champagne toast to honor the couples and their love. 

This year’s vow renewals mark Carnival’s largest-ever vow renewal at sea. 

Additionally, the Valentine’s Day vow renewal ceremonies include a range of fun activities for guests onboard such as a special trivia to Dive-In Movies and the Love & Marriage show hosted by each ship’s cruise director.
