Many people dream of one day sailing the crystal clear blue waters of the Caribbean on a cruise ship. If you or someone you love is nearing a major milestone, you can celebrate with a Caribbean Cruise ship party. If an actual cruise is not in the budget, you can recreate the experience at home. There are plenty of ways to celebrate a Caribbean cruise party.
Marriages that last are worth celebrating. If you are approaching a milestone anniversary, you can celebrate the achievement with a Caribbean cruise. You can cruise with just your spouse and re-create the romance and magic of your honeymoon. You can also bring your family along on your cruise and celebrate with them at sea. If you plan a group cruise, schedule both free time and organized activities with everyone. On the night of your actual anniversary, plan a special Caribbean cruise ship dinner party for everyone who joined you.
Another celebration you can have on the high seas is a birthday party. If you or a friend is approaching a milestone age, it should be acknowledged with a festive event. Those who have always dreamed of going on a cruise can use their birthday as an excuse to spend the money on this type of vacation. Birthday parties on cruise ships are fun for everyone because ships offer so many different activities. If your party guests have a range of ages and tastes, a cruise ship will entertain them all.
If you are unable to afford an actual vacation on a cruise ship, you can plan a Caribbean cruise-themed party at home. This can be done in honor of a special occasion or can just be a chance to bring friends and family together for a fun time. Encourage your guests to dress in cruise-wear like shorts and tropical shirts, serve Caribbean cuisine like papaya, coconut, jicama, sofrito, mango and ceviche, and plan traditional cruise games like limbo and shuffleboard.
Couples who want to have an out-of-the-ordinary wedding experience can marry aboard a cruise ship. Due to licensing regulations, you are not able to say your vows while at sea, but you can marry on board a ship in port. Following the portside ceremony, you can set sail for your reception and honeymoon. Your wedding guests will be a part of your honeymoon, so plan some alone time during the cruise. If those you care about were unable to cruise with you, host a second reception when you arrive home from your cruise. This party can be cruise-themed and incorporate the fun you had during your actual cruise. Choose cruise-themed favors, show a slide-show, and serve an elaborate buffet, similar to what you dined on during the cruise.
