    Cool Cruiser
  1. Thank for the info. My pricing at Bohio is pretty much the same. Are you paying for transportation for your guest from the cruise port to the resort? Also, are you getting the rum punch table they offer? Are you utilizing a DJ at Bohio for dancing? Lastly, are you purchasing any of the appetizers or doing an open cash bar? As far as the Carnival pricing, they did send me a brochure which says for the standard open bar option is $16 per person and for the standard appetizer package it's $12 per hour. Did you choose one of these packages, or another package?
  2. Great! I am still going back and forth. Carnival has been unpleasant to deal with at times. I do like the idea of having the ceremony and reception at Bohio because It gives my guests an opportunity to still see the island and don't have to rush back to the ship, but I am also trying to keep my costs low. They have a luncheon deal, but it's $65 per person. They also have where you can select appetizers which is a much more cost effective route. I am going to reserve the ceremony with Bohio and then worry about Carnival after. Did they allow you to pick the venue on the boat? So are you going to only have open bar for an hour? Or the entire 2 hours?
  3. Hello, I am looking into booking a ceremony and small cocktail party through this resort directly instead of going through Carnival. I will have a ceremony and 1 hour cocktail party on the resort and then go back on board for a "reception" with carnival. Has anyone ever used this resort for their ceremony? Was it less expensive doing it this way? Carnival's new prices are pretty high!
  4. Hello! I am planning a wedding while on the new Carnival Horizon ship 7/1/2019. I decided to book on a cruise since my entire family had already planned their annual vacation aboard the ship and I thought it would be the most cost effective option for my fiance and I. Apparently, Carnival went up on their prices and changed their guidelines. You know have to pay for your wedding in full to even reserve a spot!! The rep also told me they are booking wedding out to 2020 already. We want to get married in Gran Turk. That's really our only option for an island wedding on this cruise. I torn on booking with Carnival directly or going with one of the resorts on the island. The resort is much much cheaper than what Carnival is offering. I would also have a longer reception. To add an additional hour, carnival harges almost $1,000! My only issue with booking directly is if the itinerary changes!! I'm not sure what the odds of this is? Any suggestions or past experiences?
