Very expensive. Some alternatives are to do it on one of the islands or to do it on your own and celebrate on Disney. The DCL fee seems reasonable for a wedding, but for a renewal???

But we each have different priorities.

I thought about vow renewal on our upcoming cruise. I was shocked at the price. My husband and I could take another DCL cruise for the price.

For them, a vow renewal would be like their wedding so money well spent. For all you know, this couple could be the same.

On DCL, they treat weddings and VRs exactly the same .. only the vows change and the fact that you actually have to get married while the ship is still in PC (you then have a ceremony with your friends/family on a didfferent day).

Each to their own ... I don't think it's a bad idea.

Back in 2008, I helped my FIL plan a surprise vow renewal for my MIL for their 35th anniversary while on DCL. We were shocked at the cost of the vow renewal through DCL then, so we opted to book one in Grand Cayman while in port. It was absolutely gorgeous; complete with cake, flowers, and photographer for $600. There are definitely ways to do it without spending the amount of a full wedding.

color me confused?

Loved the flowers and wedding cake!
