NCL guests sent wedding invitations

Passengers aboard NCL America's pride of Aloha, Pride of Hawai'i and Pride of America are now invited to a special wedding celebration during their cruises. The off-Broadway phenomena, Tony n' Tina's Wedding, is being held on the ships during evenings when they are docked in Maui. The show, which is sold as a ship excursion, combines fantastic food and drinks with a fun and unique theatrical show. At the start of the evening, NCL passengers become part of the family, greeted by members of the wedding party and are immediately immersed into the show. Guests eat, drink and dance, as well as interact with the wedding party, eccentric friends and relatives. A family-style dinner is provided, along with music and dancing to a live band. Throughout the evening, a number of unexpected twists and turns provide humor and drama. Tickets are limited to 250 350 guests per show, depending on the ship.
