If you are planning your wedding then congratulations and all the best for your big day! Most likely amongst all the stress of venue research and invite designing, a small amount of brain matter and a significant amount of daydreaming is being dedicated to the honeymoon. Unfortunately for many of us the planning for the wedding day itself gets cluttered with details and people pleasing, and it is the honeymoon that becomes the light at the end of the tunnel. However, the honeymoon brings pressures of its own. Like the wedding, we only get one shot at it and everyone wants to start the marriage off on the right foot.
There are so many honeymoon options out there that in many cases the world is your oyster when it comes to planning yours. For example, the happy couple could embark on a cruise, snuggle up at a bed and breakfast, sun themselves at a resort, go on an extreme road trip, or grab a backpack and head off on a wildly intrepid journey.
So what is the right honeymoon for you?
Honeymoon Cruise Comments
It has been a long time since last I went on a cruise. Probably 12 years ago when I graduated from High School. I hope I don't have to get married to enjoy one again. :)
Thanks Dustytoes! We had a great time on our cruise. However, even though they are great for a holiday and if you are celebrating something, we still needed to think about whether we would recommend them for a honeymoon. A honeymoon needs to be extra special, so requires a little bit more thought about the type of holiday you choose.
Okay, this is the page I was looking for. Thanks for the insightful look at a honeymoon cruise!
Hi Mira, thank you for that nice feedback :) Yes, there is certainly a lot of info about cruises out there,
Dustytoes, that's a good point about seasickness - I might add something else to the article. We had pretty calm waters and was just a little rough on a couple of the days. Totally agree that all couples have different ideas of a honeymoon - I hope this article helps them decide on or rule out cruising as an option. Thanks for your comment.
This is a very good, well-grounded article about cruises. I've read some easy lit on cruises -- not very useful!:-)
You didn't mention having any sea-sickness so I guess you had calm waters. I think that it would be up to each couple and what their idea of a honeymoon is. You have made some very good points about the pros and cons of cruising for a honeymoon.
Thanks for the comment Katie. I'd recommend a cruise for any vacation, honeymoon or not :)
Well if I ever get married I will certainly keep the honeymoon cruise in mind. :)K
