jennabee1218:  We did a cruise for our honeymoon. We did a 10 day cruise in the Mediterranean with Princess Cruises and it wsa fantastic! And not as pricey as people think as we book super far in advance (our wedding date was actually chosen based on the cruise date – DH really wanted to go on this cruise. It was a hardship, but I agreed to it.) Everything is included but the drinks. Since I adore wine, it did get a little pricey (but I got to try wines I would never had tried so win!). We did the excursions through the cruise line as well which we quite like as it got us around to see the highlights of the various stops. He likes doing things so he really enjoys the excursion. I’m more of a sit in a chair in the sun and read type of person on holidays and the days at sea I did just that. And the food? There aren’t words to describe it. I’m a vegetarian so I had restrictions, and I was always fed incredibly. I think we gained 5 lbs each despite the hours of walking a day we did.

We did do a Caribbean cruise a few years ago (also with Princess) and enjoyed it as well. Again we did the excursions but there was ample time off as well. Plus there are always activies on the boat as well. On both cruises we did the trivia games and I got to shop. In the last cruise since the boat was in international waters, no tax! Whoot!

I hope you enjoy the heck out of your cruise!

  • Wedding: June 2015 - Historic house and gardens

catwoman1701:  Glad to see we are not the only ones who planned our wedding date around our cruise honeymoon 😉

We are booked for June 2015 on an Oceania cruise in the Mediterranean. We wanted a smaller crowd, no kids, and to try to avoid smokers. So much research later we found Oceania was perfect for us. More pricey than a lot of others, but everything is included, except alcohol, but we can get a decent priced package for that. Lots of fancy restaurant choices (included), special spa access (included too) and everything else we could want. We’re also staying about a week each end, plus touring back on land from Lisbon to Madrid, so it will be about 4 weeks all up. I can’t wait!!

  • Wedding: November 2014

jennabee1218:  We are getting married in November and then taking a Princess cruise to the Caribbean/Bahamas. We chose a cruise because neither of us have done one before, we can get away and unplug completely, and we live in Florida so it is easy to get to the cruise dock. 

We are pretty excited to be doing something new for both of us!
