If I can't fly, let me sing. Or, in other words if I can't be in Disney, let me talk about it !

We renewed our vows at the S/D at WDW. if you are thinking of spending any time there, it may be worth a look as a ceremony there is way cheaper than a similar one through Disney. Good luck with your plans!!!

We have not been on the secret deck 7, so thanks for the info. We just assumed it was quite and private.
Hmm well its more like a balcony. There's a picture of it on the Disney webpage and someone did a trip report of their Alaska cruise. They timed it to coincide with meeting the glacier which sounds amazing....

Here is the view this lady got of the glacier from the spa villa (scroll to last picture): http://www.disboards.com/showthread....m#post41189427

Here is Disney's website on what the villa looks like. http://disneycruise.disney.go.com/sh...la-treatments/

I would say you can throw your own VR - order a cake and champagne, gather your family with you out on the deck or whatever, propose to her again maybe at dinner (to let her know it is going to happen) and then just renew your vows between you. You don't need an officiant or anything, just a commitment to stay married

You are probably right, I think I may have drank too much when I typed that.

I would do scavenger hunt around the ship,

have a gift ready at each gift shop

a bottle of alcohol from liquor store,

who knows what else leading to a romantic spot to vow your love all over again

(so creative when I drink)

Totally hijacking this thread as I, too, am celebrating my wedding anny onboard the Wonder. No way I can afford the $3K vow renewal package.

We're a large group (about 25+) and I was thinking of maybe doing a champagne toast at our table at the MDR one night (definitely not pirate night!). Would it be expensive to order a few bottles of champagne, or do individual glasses? Or should I bring my own bottles and hope they don't charge the cork fees? Would the MDR be too loud for us to make this happen?

Sorry to OP, but since everybody has been wonderful with suggestions, I was hoping they too can answer my questions. Thanks!

they will charge you the corkage fee....... I had a twist off cap (cheap) and they still charged me the corkagefee

It may be a bit loud for a toast depending ...............

Could you do it later in say, the Piano bar?

That sounds like a great idea! Do you think it would be OK to bring my own champagne? Or would that be frowned upon?

According to DCL policy that is not allowed.

http://disneycruise.disney.go.com/fa...nboard-policy/

Question
May Guests bring alcohol onboard?

Answer
While adult Guests ages 21 and older may bring alcohol onboard, the following guidelines apply:

Outside alcohol cannot be consumed in any lounge or public area
At Palo and Remy, a $20 corkage fee will be charged for outside wine and champagne
Beverages must be packed in your carry-on bag—which must not exceed 22 inches wide, 14 inches high and 9 inches deep in dimension
Coolers filled with personal items (e.g. soda, alcohol, chips, candy, etc.) may not be brought on board.
Please note: Disney Cruise Line reserves the right to remove fragile items (including beverages) from checked luggage. In such cases, items will be stored and returned at the end of the voyage. Beverage containers are considered fragile and have previously caused damage in checked luggage. All fragile items must be transported inside carry-on luggage.

We saw a guy last week carry a half empty bottle of wine into one of the bar/club on the Magic, nobody said a word to him.
