Shaq loves breaking records.

Love is in the salty breeze aboard Carnival Cruise Line this Valentine’s Day. They’re turning up the romance dial with their biggest vow renewal event at sea yet. Shaquille O’Neal, aka Chief Fun Officer, is virtually officiating the love fest, which is even more massive this year thanks to the addition of two new ships – Carnival Venezia and Carnival Jubilee – giving more couples the chance to say “I do” all over again.

After the heartfelt ceremonies, couples get to keep the love flowing with onboard receptions, complete with a DJ spinning tunes and a champagne toast to toast their renewed commitment. Plus, there’s the extra dose of fun with an onboard kiss-cam, capturing those sweet smooches and broadcasting them on the Seaside Theater’s big screen.

 “People meet, get engaged and get married on Carnival cruise ships and our Valentine’s  Day vow renewals are an extension of how couples love to cruise with Carnival, and we’re delighted to offer this ceremony to more guests than ever before,” said Christine Duffy,  president of Carnival Cruise Line. “Love and fun go hand in hand, so a vow renewal or wedding ceremony is even more special when it’s part of a Carnival cruise. We have a team of  experienced planners who make it their mission to ensure unforgettable celebrations between  loved ones and their friends and families.”

Carnival makes it easy for lovebirds to set sail into the sunset with their Weddings by Carnival program, offering ceremonies both at sea and in dreamy destinations. Last year alone, over 1,220 weddings and vow renewals were celebrated, proving that love truly knows no bounds on the high seas.

Whether you’re planning to pop the question, tie the knot, embark on a honeymoon, or renew your vows, Carnival’s got you covered with personalized packages and dreamy itineraries to make your special moment one for the books.
