About the couple

Bride: Lesley Robb

Groom: Jose Carlos Salazar

How they met: “We met while working on the Ms. Veendam cruise ship for Holland America Line. Jose Carlos was a casino dealer and I was an event staff volunteer,” explains Lesley. “One day we were introduced in the crew bar and started talking. Soon we started spending time together after work in the crew bar and other people’s cabins. Then we went on our first date in Manaus, Brazil and have been dating ever since.”

Engagement story: “We were working for Carnival Cruise Lines and were on the Ms. Liberty ship. We made reservations for dinner in the specialty restaurant called Harry’s Steakhouse,” Lesley recalls. “After our first course, Jose Carlos pulled out a ring and asked me to marry him. We ordered a glass of champagne to toast and celebrate our engagement and then after the dinner we went into the crew bar and celebrated with our friends.”
