@Kendra_futuremrstyson:  First of all, a big WELCOME to the hive! 🙂

In my mind, having a reception is a way of thanking people for witnessing your ceremony,  and the most key thing to me, as a guest, would be food. I don’t know what time of day your ceremony is and when your ship casts off, but after the ceremony could you provide your guests with a buffet-style meal or sandwiches or something? And maybe you and your groom could eat beforehand so you can circulate while everyone else eats. I’d be really disappointed if I couldn’t afford to go on the cruise and then didn’t even have a chance to eat and mingle, and talk to the newlyweds for a minute, even if it was just for an hour total after the ceremony I think it would make a big difference. 

Whatever you decide, good luck and congratulations!

@Kendra_futuremrstyson: Would people have to travel to the cruise port location for the ceremony? Because I personally find it a little rude to expect everyone to travel to a location for a ceremony only. If you do decide to go this way I would expect only those joining you on the cruise to attend.

@Kendra_futuremrstyson:  I think you totally misunderstood my question. Would your guest have to travel to the cruise port location (not the cruise ship but the city where the port is and you are having your ceremony) or do they live locally? I am talking about the guests that are not coming on the cruise.
