Captain Sarah is ready to perform Royal weddings in mid-Atlantic

//Captain Sarah is ready to perform Royal weddings in mid-Atlantic

There’s an opportunity for three couples to share a wedding date with Prince William and Kate Middleton by getting married at sea – they could be saying “I do” in the middle of the Atlantic instead of at the altar in Westminster Abbey.
And the wedding would be even more special because it would be carried out by the only female captain in charge of a British cruise ship.
Captain Sarah Breton will be at the helm of P&O’s Aurora, sailing between Barbados and Madeira on April 29. She is legally able to perform wedding ceremonies at sea, and there are three time slots available on the big day.
Passengers on all P&O’s ships will be able to join in the Royal wedding celebrations, with the ceremony being broadcast live on board.
Managing director Carol Marlow said: “It is only fitting that our passengers should have a front row seat from around the globe. It will certainly be a grand celebration with almost 14,000 passengers sailing with us at this time.”
On Arcadia, 2,000 passengers will have to drag themselves away from views of the Panama Canal in order to view the ceremony as they head towards Puntarenas, Costa Rica
Azura will be in port at Palma, and many of the 3,100 passengers will be able to watch the giant SeaScreen by the ship’s pool. Oriana will also be in Palma, and Oceana will be at sea en route to Southampton from Gibraltar.
Passengers boarding Ventura in Southampton on April 29 will want to make sure they have settled into their cabins in time to watch the ceremony, and they will have an extra-special Royal sailaway party complete with Union Jacks to wave and champagne to sip.
