A cruise sounds nice!! I went on one with my family before, I think it was a Royal Caribbean. There’s always lots of stuff to do and I remember the food being great! Good luck with planning!!

All I know is that I want to do an all-inclusive, child-free resort for like a week… just relaxing! Whenever we go on vacation it is always action packed getting stuff in… after the wedding I absolutely want to just kick back and watch the waves roll by. Maybe St. Lucia or Jamaica or something?

I posted in the other thread, but we’ll probably do a Caribbean cruise in December. Fiance has school the week after the wedding (it’s also hurricane season), so we’ll just wait until school’s out and go before Christmas.

We are going to St Lucia! We are planning to do a few nights at Sandals and then a few nights at this more secluded resort that has the best snorkeling in St Lucia (or so they say). I cannot wait to finalize the plans and then be there!

While you all are heading south, we’ll be heading west for some peace and quiet in the Tetons.

@VermontBride13:  We looked into this yesterday, and holy eff is that expensive. I mean, it’s beautiful and all-inclusive, but a cruise is 1/5 of that even with alcohol and excursions. 

We talked about all-inclusive resorts yesterday and priced some out, since Fiance wants to do something different for our Honeymoon. He said he really liked our cruise, but he’d like to do something different if we can. Argh. We can’t freaking afford it. $2k total for a cruise, yes; $5-6k for a resort? No.

Fiance has always wanted to go on a cruise, and we’re thinking Alaska or Caribbean. Anything vacation is fine by me!

@vorpaletteHow did you find cruises in the Caribbean during August? I had a lot of troubles finding one because its hurricane season. And yeah they can be pricey but you can definitely find a more reasonable room and flight for 2 under $5K. I love cruises BUT feel like I can’t see enough of the place we stop so we wanted something more relaxing in one place.

We are thinking France and Italy in January 2014, it will give us time to save up and its a lot easier to deal with considering our school schedules. I also think it will be a lot cheaper to go in the winter. I think we will also go up to Vermont or somewhere right after the wedding just for a little quiet time before we come back to our regular lives.

@VermontBride13:  I checked four different all-inclusives (Sandals, Couples, Breezes, and Pacuare Lodge, which is actually not all-inclusive) and they were all (for the cheapest room at sale price) $5k+. Frown

We aren’t actually going on our hm in August. Fiance goes back to school just over a week after the wedding, so we’re going to wait until December when the semester is over.

We decided we’re not big on Alaska, much more into a Caribbean cruise 🙂
