The P&O Cruises Renewal of Vows package means a heavenly day of love and laughter for you. We’re sure you have a picture in your head of how you’d like your special day to be. We’re here to help ensure the dream in your head comes true. We understand it can all feel a bit daunting to arrange too, but you can rely on our knowledge and attention to detail to make it all as stress-free as possible.

Choose your perfect venue

You can have your ceremony on any of the ships in our fleet. From family-friendly ships to others designed exclusively for adults, each ship has its own unique personality. Traditional or contemporary, you can choose the perfect celebration for you. The ceremony will take place in one of our elegant function rooms such as the Captain’s Lounge on Oceana and Oriana (both with panoramic sea views), or the modern and contemporary Ivory Suite on Azura, Britannia and Ventura.


Your own personal onboard ceremony coordinator

The moment you step on board, your Ceremony Coordinator will help you organise all the details that’ll make your day really special and memorable. They will be available throughout your cruise to answer your questions and help with any additional requirements you may have.


Your ceremony will most probably take place on a sea day, but if you have a particular preference for a date or time, add it to the booking form and we will see what we can do. To ensure we’re aware of everything from the weather to any last minute changes to itinerary, we prefer to agree the date of the ceremony between yourselves and the Captain once you’re on board with us.


We offer a choice of two traditional Renewal of Vows services – one with religious content (Service A) and one without (Service B). For Civil Partnerships, we offer a traditional civil ceremony (Service C). The ceremony normally lasts approximately 30 minutes.


It’s easy as that - you don’t need to bring any documents with you as renewing your Vows is not a legally-binding ceremony. You’ll simply reaffirm the vows you made to your partner on the day of your wedding or civil partnership.


The days before

You can treat yourself to all sorts of indulgences on board in the days leading up to your ceremony day, too. (Read on to discover what delights await in the spa and salon as you count down to your big day...) Then, when it arrives, our staff will take care of all the little details. As everything you could possibly want or need is a short stroll from your cabin, you can enjoy your day without any of the usual worries about getting from the ceremony to the reception either.


The main event

Your Renewal of Vows ceremony should be everything you wish for, so we provide a lovely package which includes bouquets, buttonholes, a cake and photographer. Held in a private venue, your Captain* will conduct your ceremony and present you with a certificate.   Afterwards, there’ll be cake and a Champagne toast.

 * If the Captain is unable to conduct the ceremony, his Senior Representative will be asked to perform the role on his behalf.
