I personally like Royal Carribean out of FL better than Carnival.  The key is to really look at how old the ship is and how big it is.  Some of the older ships have been redone but they still can be small for the longer cruises.

I’ve done Carnival a few times in the past and have always had a good experiance with them.  I’ve also done the 2 Disney cruises (sans children since I don’t have any) and it was also a good time.  If you do a Carnival I would advise not to do it on a school vacation time.  My Carnival cruises were in early Dec and end of March. The Disney cruises were mid Jan and the end of Feb.

I could have a crappy cruise, but I would still have fun, bc 1-I’m not at work dealing with idiots, 2-I’m not at home having to deal with cleaning, cooking and idiots in general 3-I dont have to deal with cold weather 🙂

I love cruises!  I like Princess and Royal Caribbean the best, Carnival is good, but I would pick Royal Caribbean or Princess if I had a choice.  And try to get a new ship.

and stay far away from Discovery Cruiseline it’s a 1-day cruise from Miami to Bahamas which u can either get off and stay there or come back the same day….We call that one “the cruise from hell”.

7-night western caribbean leaves Jan 2 returns Jan 9th.  It’s costing us $2500, because we sprung for a room with a balcony and an ocean view, and it’s a brand new ship, just went on it’s maiden voyage this month!  Our airline tickets are pretty expensive though because we fly out on Jan 1, I think it’s $500 for both of us…. Hopefully we will get lots of wedding money to pay for excursions!

we aren’t going on a cruise for the honeymoon but for our wedding. For us the prices are inside $527, window-$586 and balcony-$696. Its a 8 day 7 night cruise. We expect our plane tickets to be between $200-$250 round trip. I have always learned to bring extra money on vacation because its better to have too much than not enough. So we are bringing $4000 for spending money and our roomtabs. Even though I’m 95% sure we aren’t going to spend all of it.

I’ve been on a few Royal Carribean and only one Carnival cruise, all when I was between 10-16. IMO they were all the same (of course i probably didn’t pay attention to much since i was younger) and you are going to have fun NO MATTER what.

I love cruises because you get the opportunity to see so many great places! I’ve been on several and I defiantly recommend Royal Caribbean (although we had a great time on Carnival as well). Things you need to do:

1. Splurge on a room with a balcony. As honeymooners you will spend more time in your room than the average cruiser, so that makes it nice.

2. Go to the shows! (I didn’t do this on my the second cruise and I really regretted it because on our third one we had the best time!)

3. Pick cool excursions, things you really will never get to do, we went swimming with stingrays (super scary but really cool at the same time!)

 

Cruise 1 we went to Cozumel, Belize, and Florida Keys. Cruise 2 Puerto Rico, St. Thomas, and St. Maarteen. Cruise 3, Costa Maya, Cozumel, Belize, Grand Kayman. 

 

ENJOY!
