While your wedding can take place on a ship, it is likely that the ship won't be sailing when your wedding actually happens. Cruise ships need to have a special license to perform a wedding in international waters, so most cruise ship weddings occur in port, and marriage license requirements depend on that port. For example, if you marry on a cruise ship in a port in Florida, you'll need to obtain a marriage license according to the state of Florida guidelines.
