We chose a cruise also, simply because the last time we flew somwhere it was a nightmare getting to the destination and getting home. We will be able to take the train from less than a 1/2 hour from our home, stay in a fantastic city for a few days before the cruise leaves, and relax again on the way out of town.

We booked a balcony without an obstructed view but other than that we splurged on the hotel in the city….

sorry I am not much help. We are just discussing the excursions now. I think they will involve laying around on beaches and have drinks with umbrellas…

Counting the days.. only 67 more..

Darling Husband and I went on a week-long Alaskan cruise for our honeymoon.  We got a balcony room (but I would never do this for a Carribean cruise – all there is to see is water) since the Alaskan cruises go right up the coast so there is lots of beautiful scenery.

We went sea kayaking, salmon fishing and on a catamaran ride to the glaciers.  We were also supposed to go on a helicopter ride to a glacier for dog sledding but the weather that day forced them to cancel the excursion (so we went to the spa on the ship for massages instead).

I’m certified to dive but have never dove during a cruise.  In all honesty, I think you’d be better off planning a separate dive trip if you want to dive in the Carribean.  The timing of port stops and such might not bode well to setting up a dive trip while ashore (and you’d have to do this through a private company probably as I’ve never seen SCUBA offered as an excursion through the cruiseline).

We went on a 20 day Caribbean cruise for our honeymoon and it was incredible!

We didn’t upgrade our room because we honestly spent almost no time in there. There was so much to do and see on the ship…we pretty much only used our room when we needed to shower, use our laptops, sleep, or…be newlyweds 🙂

We did some island tours and a lot of snorkelling. What ports will you be stopping at? If I’ve been to any of the islands you’re going to I’ll tell you what excursions we did.

@MM423: Darn, we didn’t stop at any of those so I can’t tell you what’s good. But my grandmother recently took a vacation to Grand Cayman and she said it was gorgeous. I’m sure you’ll have an amazing time!

We’re going on the Eastern Allure of the Seas through Royal Caribbean. It’s 7 days and stops in the Bahamas, St. Thomas, and St. Maarten. I’m excited! (although a little nervous about hurrican season) We’ll be leaving Sept. 4, so we have 2 weeks after our wedding to get ready for the cruise.

Haven’t gotten around to booking excursions, but I’m definitely going to because we went on a few excursions during our Alaskan cruise and they were the most memorable experiences of our trip!

We went on a cruise for our honeymoon as well. Ziplining in Antigua, snorkeling in Dominica, island tours in the other places. We got a junior suite upgrade for a little bit more, and it was really nice. I loved being able to sit on the balcony and look at all the islands. We were in Western Caribbean, and on a different island everyday
