Dawn Gray, Destination Wedding Specialist

The wedding will be held July 7th, 2024 - more details are coming, soon. 

The cruise is the reception and celebration, details are listed below!


You're Invited

Our love story brought us here, and this July 2024, we hope you’ll be there to embark on the best part of our love story as we set sail to forever - we’re getting married!

Ahmed and Lamel met around 2004 at the New York State Veterans Home, where they both worked. They officially began dating in November of 2005 and the rest is history. Then nearly two decades later Ahmed decided to put a ring on it and popped the big question on Lamel’s birthday December 4th, 2020. And she happily said, “Yes." 

These two are excited about saying “I Do” because they have yet to share their love story with family and friends. Family is an important and essential thing to the couple. Although they are not your traditional couple, they wanted to do something traditional that would include their loved ones. 

This will be one of the most memorable moments in their lifetime, and they want you all to come sail away on this fantastic voyage.


Psst… important details below!


Carnival Venezia

It's a long way from Venice to NYC, but Carnival Venezia thinks the two could be next-door neighbors. This ship is now sailing from its Big Apple homeport.

What can you expect to find in this ship? Well, there’s more than a little Italy in this one — that’s why we’re calling this new type of cruising Fun Italian Style. It starts with the Venice-inspired atrium Piazza San Marco, the onboard flavor and flair continues at the three-course Marco Polo and Canal Grande Restaurants, La Strada Grill and its Italian street food, plus fusion spots Tomodoro (Mexican-Italian, yum!) and Guy’s Burger Joint (new burgers with Italian flavors — also yum!). And in authentic ristorante style, the elevated Italian of Il Viaggio. 

Sip well at bars that each specialize in their own thing: complex and sophisticated cocktails at Amari, bubbly stuff (plus snacks and coffee) at Frizzante, frozen everything at Rococó and fine Italian wines at Carnevale Bar & Lounge

There’s great entertainment at the red-velvety Teatro Rosso and its Playlist Productions shows, plus Gondola Lounge was inspired by the famous canals of Venice.

Terrazza staterooms are a whole new way to stay in style and comfort, all in a great location close to amenities like the exclusive Terrazza Carnevale, a private terrace deck made for lounging, sipping and fun, day or night!
