We went to St. Lucia! DH doesn’t like cruises, and we wanted somewhere we could relax and wouldn’t feel obligated to do lots of exploring, which we’d definitely want to do at Disney World (we love Disney and live near Disneyland so we have annual passes).

It seems like a good amount of cruises stop at St. Lucia. It’s a beautiful, small, independent island, and I feel like it’s easy to do as much or as little as you’d like. We stayed for 7 nights at an all-inclusive couples resort, went to the last night of their awesome annual Jazz festival, and did one excursion where we took a catamaran to the south of the island and did a hot mud bath in a volcanic crater. The rest of the time we just relaxed. It was amazing.

The biggest down side was travel time (LAX->New York area->St Lucia). It wouldn’t have been so bad if it was a direct flight or we transferred somewhere not so far out of the way, but we had to choose what worked with our schedule and budget.

We have decided to do a mediterranean cruise 🙂 It’s the most cost effective way for us to hit multiple European countries, and not having to pack and repack between countries is a plus!

We are probably doing Jamaica! We have it narrowed down to Jamaica, the Dominican Republic and the Bahamas…but my FI says he has “his heart set on Jamaica.” Works for me! We’re working with a travel agent now. SOOO excited! 🙂

We spent two weeks in Italy, and it was AMAZING. Literally two weeks of pure bliss and the most delicious food we’ve ever eaten.

We’re getting married in Hawaii, so when our family comes home, we’re going to the other islands.

unicornphish:  Do you mind sharing where you stayed?  FI and I are considering St. Lucia for hour honeymoon as well, and I’d love some suggestions for an all inclusive there.

  • Wedding: April 2017 - Not sure

We are thinking of Bora Bora (if we can find a place cheaper than $1600 a night!), Maldives or Hawaii. Or wedding is kinda far away, so we’re deciding still 😨

lseabrook1210:  Not at all! We stayed at Rendezvous and loved it. We loved that it was smaller and more unique than Sandals, and they treat their honeymooners very well! If we had wanted to pay for something swankier their sister resort sounded really nice too. Actually we had planned on spending part of our trip at a cheaper resort but then we found a really good deal on Orbitz.
