I’m sorry to hear that it’s not working out how you invisioned it.

I don’t really have anything to add other than I’d call the cruise or your godparents ASAP and see if another room is available, I’ve been on cruises and that low to the bottom SUCKED (for me others might like it). The no windows doesn’t really bother me since I wasn’t in the room a lot and also tell the cruise that you want a queen bed and they will convert your twins to a queen before you arrive (so you don’t have to DIY or wait for them to do it).

Also on a ship I like to be towards the middle because I feel less movement, if I’m too up front or back I get sick from the movement.

If you get motion sickness I suggest getting the Transderm from your doctor. For me it works better than Dramamine and I didn’t get tired using it like I do with the Dramamine. Laughing

I can definitely understand why you’re upset and that’s cool, I’d probably be too, but please don’t look past the fact that was extremely nice of your godparents and that was probably quite a lot of money that they forked out as well. Maybe you’ll get lots of cash at the wedding for presents you can put towards it?

@MissMalibu:  this is the problem of someone else paying for something. Don’t get me wrong, it was absolutely lovely and generous of them to pay for it. However, it has ended up costing you a lot. Maybe even more than what you were willing to pay in the first place for a honeymoon. 

Im not sure what you can do other than ‘get over it’ and I honestly don’t mean that in a horrible way. go on honeymoon and have an absolutely wonderful time. 

The other thing you could do is to ask your godparents if there has been a mistake? But you’d have to be careful about not coming across as ungrateful, however, based in conversations already, they seem very open to discussing details and cost of things.

 

whatever you decide, good luck!!

omg I would freak. I am WAYYY too much of a control freak to let anyone else plan my honeymoon, and if it turned out wrong, it would take SOOO much for me to not think things were ruined. I tend to overreact to things for several days before I realize I’m being stupid and calm down. I’m really really glad you are able to just vent a bit then accept it and have a great time!!

@MissMalibu:  🙁 i’m sorry about all of this! hopefully it will all work out nicely and you will forget about ever being mad. it’s hard not to have control of those things and i dont think that you’re out of line being upset. please update on how things turn out. i understand your point of view because it’s all about budget at first, you don’t want to blow that and then have “buyers remorse” or whatever the equivalent would be whenever bills roll around and more fights, etc arise. cruising is alot of fun! what line are you guys planning to go on? i would try to worry less about the flights and just book the cheapest that you can find, and try to redirect that money to trying to upgrade your room on the boat – preferably to a balcony if you could, and look for budget friendly things to do while in port. also – they wont tell you this initially, but when the boat is in port and you decide to stay on board, there are lots of sales and discounts on spa packages, etc.. just in case you would be interested in that. let me know how it goes and please keep me posted! try not to be mad at the FI for too long.. most boats “king size bed” is two twins pushed together and you wont ever tell the difference!
