When DH and I got married a few months ago, we weren’t able to take a ‘real’ honeymoon because of vacation schedules. Instead, we planned a three-day minimoon and then a two week honeymoon in February (aka now).
Our first week was a cruise where we were both so exhausted that we slept through the first few days. Then, he got sick and ended up spending two days in bed trying to keep anything down, mostly unsuccessfully (sorry, tmi?). He started to feel better the last day of our cruise (yesterday) when we were flying to our second half of our honeymoon, but was also starting to feel like a cold was coming.
Last night was the longest night of my married life – He’s so sick (again) and barely slept and I feel so bad for him. He’s going to spend today in bed and hopefully be better soon. Today, I’m feeling queasy and I’m afraid that I’m getting sick too.
I’m so bummed that it’s looking like we are going to spend our whole two week honeymoon with one of us sick the whole time 🙁

@smiles4jo: Ugh, that’s awful. So sorry that you and DH are so sick that you can’t enjoy your honeymoon 🙁

@smiles4jo: Similar thing happened to DH and me. I feel for you! We did the short mini-honeymoon after the wedding and a delayed big honeymoon, too. He got sick on both and I got sick on only the second. We tease that we only get sick on honeymoons so we aren’t going on those anymore… just regular vacations for us from now on 😉

First and foremost… (( HUGS ))
Cause that has to suck !!
Mr TTR and I both got terrible head colds on our extended Wedding & Honeymoon trip over Christmas… so I can relate a little.
We were popping OTC Meds, drinking OJ, taking Echinacea, Vitamin C, and praying that the whole thing was overwith already !!
Ya it can be no-fun to be sick on vacation… but worse when it is your Honeymoon for sure !!

It is probably too late now…
But this info may help someone else…
If he was sick on the cruise, and he had reported that to the Med Centre, there was a good chance that they could have helped him out. They do things like give meds for FREE to passengers who agree to stay in their cabins (not like it sounds he wanted to leave) versus his being out and about on the ship passing it on to others.
In return for agreeing to be quarantined by the Med Crew, the Cruise Line will often give the “affected cabin” a pro-rated FREEBIE for their cruise and the time they missed out from enjoying it (ie sick 2 days, then 2 days of cruising for FREE on your next vacation with them)
