Surprise Wedding Vow Renewal

My family is going on the Magic in May (me, wife, 2 kids, my mom, and my sister and her family) and I was wondering if anyone knows about or has ever heard of the ships captain ever marrying passengers. We are already married so it would be a renewal of vows (it will be almost 5 years when we are aboard the ship). Thanks for any input!

You can arrange to renewal vows. I believe it cost around $2500. Expensive!

Vow renewals are treated and priced the same as weddings. Current prices start at $3,000 and more info can be found here : http://disneyweddings.disney.go.com/...-cruise/detail

WOW! Not at all what i expected...it's unfortunate that it's so expensive. That is completely out of my price range. I was just hoping for a romantic gesture, not another huge debt. Other suggestions???

Couples massage - still pricey but saves you about $2500

Or what about that steam room(?) where couples apparently go to renew their "physical love" for each other? There was a thread on it a month or so ago (Exotic Something?) - I think the cost for that was less than $100.

I am in the middle of booking a cruise for next year for my 20th. I had previously read about the cost of renewals. My thought was to be a deck somewhere just him and I renew our love to each other there.

We were married on the Fantasy in August and the captain did perform the ceremony; we didn't request it and were completely surprised

Exotic Rasul. Darn shame I missed that information for our last cruise in November. I'll keep that one in mind for our next one!

Thread about it. http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2661059

Also missed it on the Wonder last Feb. But AFAIK, it's only available on the classic ships and not the newer ones. We might do the Magic in Dec this year and if so, will definitely book it.

You don't just 'get married' on the ship - There's a whole logistics behind it that someone else had to work on behind the scene.

In fact, you CANNOT get married on the ship. You must get married at the port and then you can have a ceremony done aboard.
