Cruise Diary: Wedding at Sea

Nancy Moen and Chuck Velte exchanged vows on board Oosterdam March 7. Nancy will continue to update us on their wedding at sea and festivities throughout their voyage.

Evenings at sea end with a view of the setting sun that rivals a Henri Matisse painting. Chuck and I enjoyed the daily show of color from the verandah of our cabin on the ms Oosterdam, which our capable and congenial captain referred to so eloquently as our beautiful Oosterdam and he’s right. The ship is magnificent. At Cabo San Lucas, she waits for passengers to explore the final port city of our cruise. Note there’s no pier. All of us going ashore rode sturdy orange tenders to the docks, offering us yet another view of the gorgeous geological treasures guarding this sun-drenched heaven. — Nancy Moen

Editor’s Note: The wedding vow exchange in these posts is not a legal wedding but is a lovely, personal ceremony. Weddings can be arranged with Holland America Line but legal ceremonies must be performed in ports of call or on Half Moon Cay.
