A Blissful Wedding At Sea
The couple tied the knot on the Royal Caribbean's Anthem of the Seas, E! Online reports.
The cruise also hosted a birthday party for Jones, who also turned 56.

Jones's Relationship With Ludo
The former The View panelist got engaged to Ludo in October 2017. The pair have been in a relationship since 2016. While she is cautious about revealing too many details about her relationship, Jones have previously talked about her happiness with her partner.
"We're engaged. Not talking about it," she tells Us Weekly soon after the engagement. "He's wonderful. I'm happy and that's all anybody outside of my family needs to know."
According to Chicago Tribune, Lugo used to work as a Cook County assistant state's attorney until he was laid off with 16 other prosecutors following budget cuts to his office. He has since joined Fathers' Rights Attorney Jeffrey M. Leving's Legal Team, a firm that is dedicated to rescuing children and reuniting them with their fathers.
Lugo is father to a 12-year-old son named Jake. He is divorced.
Like her new husband, Jones has also been previously married. She and investment banker Al Reynolds split up after almost four years of marriage.
