Kalmar Nyckel has been selected by many couples as their perfect wedding venue. It provides a special location that bride and groom and guests will enjoy and talk about for years to come! The ship can sail with up to 49 passengers or can host a dockside reception for up to 90 people.
You may wish to host a pirate wedding, complete with the captain reciting your pirate vows! (though this is not a legal marriage). There is an area for setting up drinks or a small bar and a location that typically accommodates a full spread of food on deck, supplied by the caterer of your choice.* You may choose to have a crew member do a history talk to entertain your guests or you may prefer to bring musical entertainment (max 2-3 musicians).* The ship will gladly accommodate flowers or a family flag or sign.
*Entertainers and caterers count towards the total passenger count of 49 underway or 90 dockside.
