Atlas Ocean Voyages recently announced that it is offering a wedding package aboard one of its Antarctica cruises next February.
The cruise — which is aboard the operator’s new ship, World Navigator — sets sail on Valentine’s Day 2024 and the “Happily Ever Atlas” package is available to couples who want to get married or renew their vows during the 9-day voyage, the announcement said.
The wedding package includes custom announcements and thank you cards, an officiant, bachelor and bachelorette parties onboard, a professional wedding photographer, a wedding cake, flowers, honeymoon spa treatments and the $650 marriage license fee to be married in the British Antarctic Territory, according to the company.
Couples will be able to choose to get married on Antarctica itself, on a private zodiac, or somewhere onboard the ship.
“Antarctica is the most coveted bucket-list destination and Atlas Ocean Voyages is delivering the Seventh Continent in the most distinctive and memorable way,” Alberto Aliberti, Atlas Ocean Voyages’ president said in a statement. “World Navigator’s Happy Ever Atlas voyage will offer couples the most unique setting to exchange their vows for a wedding day they will never forget.”
Whether they’re getting married or not, passengers will start their journey on a private charter flight from Orlando, Florida, to Ushuaia, Argentina.
There, they will board World Navigator — which holds a maximum of 196 guests — and will sail through the Drake Passage to the South Shetland Islands before heading to Antarctica itself.
