Spreading Ashes in the Ocean from a Cruise Ship

Has anyone had a ceremony of spreading ashes from a cruise ship? I am thinking about doing that and wonder if there is anything I should be especially careful to consider. I am looking at Carnival Cruises to the Bahamas..since as I understand, one can actually spread the ashes as opposed to just placing the entire  biodegradable container. I would appreciate any info..Thanks!!See More
