However, for the banquet weddings, you get to experience the same old places and nothing exceptional about them that can enhance the event. A banquet doesn’t excite anybody. It just feels like another wedding one has to attend.


For wedding on a cruise, one can make it into an intimate affair with only close friends and family. Or, they can choose a grand celebration with a large number of people to sail out for the occasion.
