Regarding you walking up the aisle – you could stand at the end of the aisle and your FI can walk toward you and he can escort you back up to the alter. I’ve seen that done at a vowel renewal and it was quite lovely.

After all the guests have been seated your husband to be can have his special momemnt walking in without the officiant and then your turn by yourself. 

Golden Ticket:  and modified…you begin to walk and he meets you halfway and escorts you the rest of the way.

 

 

Have someone announce toasts and cake cutting on the upper deck. You can have the staff spread the word or a few go to people within your guests. I would suggest cut cake and while the staff slices and serves guests have the toasts. People can eat and listen.

I agree with PP, but on the lower deck – you don’t want the cake to start wilting in the sun!

I agree with 3-4 apps per person at that time.

I think you need more time to get everyone seated for ceremony, doing the ceremony and getting back downstairs. Even if your ceremony is super short, it takes a long time to move large groups of people.

If you don’t want to do a big entrance, you don’t have to! Just walk to the front with your fiance as guests are getting seated. When everyone is seated, have the officiant start the ceremony.

I would do toasts immediately before cake cutting in AC (cakes don’t like heat/sun). 

Make an announcement asking folks to stay for pictures after cruise.

It all sounds like great fun!!!
