A Sweet Honeymoon Cruise

After you’ve planned your wedding down the smallest detail and reveled in the day itself, wouldn’t it be great to embark on a cruise? You won’t have to worry about whether the ring bearer will behave, whether the relatives at table 14 will get along or if your lactose-free guests will get the correct meal; you can just relax, enjoy being together, and visit some lovely ports of call.

One important consideration is where to cruise. It’s fun to learn about all the possible destinations, but give some serious thought to what you’d like most: spending time on a sandy beach, visiting the ancient sections of Mediterranean cities, or sledding on a glacier, for example.

Also, talk about the type of ship you want to sail on: something with lots of entertainment and nightlife, or an elegant vessel with five-star dining? In addition, your Cruise Holidays personal cruise expert can give you insight into which ships are favored by couples, families, and older voyagers.

On top of all the regular amenities of a cruise (the no-hassle dining, sparkling pools, gyms and sport decks, etc.), many cruise lines extend good wishes to honeymooners in the form of some extra perks. There’s often an evening reception just for honeymooners, complete with champagne, hors d’oeuvres and best wishes from the officers of the ship. You may find a complimentary bottle of champagne in your stateroom as well. Most ships also offer celebration packages of additional amenities for an extra (but discounted) fee: these can include luxurious robes for your stateroom, spa treatments, caviar and petit fours, even some rose petals sprinkled on your bed.

After you choose your ship, here are just two checklist items:
  •    If you’d rather have a table to yourselves in the dining room than be seated with other passengers, be sure to request a table for two, and let the crew know it’s because you’re on your honeymoon.
  •        If you’re looking forward to a couple’s massage in the spa, reserve your time as soon as possible. Couple’s massages are very popular with honeymooners and long-time couples alike, and these appointments tend to fill quickly. 

Now, if you’d actually like to get married while on a cruise, that’s another article! To get answers to all of your cruise questions, talk with Anita, your Cruise Holidays personal cruise expert.
