Budget?

If you were planning on August/September I’d say a river cruise in Europe, but since you want warm in November you’ll probably be in the Carib on an ocean cruise (too many people for my taste, but a lot of people like them)

Tachetetreasures:  November is end of rainy/hurricane season in Carribean, and should still be warmish. 

We went to St Lucia in September and it rained like for 30 minutes a day adn that was it, and that is smack dab in rainy season. November should be even drier.

We cruised bahamas in early  Dec and it was gorgeous weather but the water was a little cold

Hmm- If your set on November, you might have a hard time finding something sunny and warm because winter is starting in many places around the world. 

I’ve heard a Mediterranean Cruise is a must-experience trip- full of historical sites, beautiful beaches, and awesome food. I’ve heard it’s better to go in October because of the weather.

But- if you’re really set on November- The beauty of New Zealand is surreal, magical, and would make an amazing Honeymoon getaway. The weather should also be nice there around that time of the year. Princess cruise line and Royal Carribean have some great packages.

During November the European season is over, and majority of ships are already repositioned to Caribbean. Avoid Bahamas as November(not so much), December and January are a bit rainy. I’d advice Caribbean, or New Zealand as PP mentioned is lovely too. To me the best cruises overall are Mediterranean, are the most romantic ones and there is a lot to see and do all the time.

We did a southern caribbean cruise  last October and we did eastern caribbean over thanksgiving this year and both were amazing- great weather for both. Also Mexico is really nice in November- if you don’t want to do a cruise we go to Cabo a lot in November and the weather is always perfect, sunny and warm- no rain!

Rain season ends the end of November in Central America and the Southern Caribbean, which means that these places could be on yourlist: Colombia, Panama, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Domenican Republic, Aruba, Curacao, Barbados. 

Temperature-wise they don’t have seasons like in the North,so it’s hot all year. I recommend Colombia, it’s amazing.

Fiance and I took a cruise this last November for his Bday. Cruised on Carnival Facination out of San Juan for 7 days and the weather was perfect. If you can get a reasonable flight there it’s a great deal as well. We are actually taking a cruise from New Orleans after our elopement in September. It will also be on Carnival but this time on the Dream. We have been on 3 cruises of different lengths and have had a great time on all of them.   Have a great time planning your honeymoon!

We got married in August and took a honeymoon cruise at the end of November. It was on the Royal Princess, what a gorgeous ship and the food and everything was amazing! We went to Aruba, Bonaire, Grenada, Dominica, St. Thomas, and Princess Cays. The weather was great, no rain and it was so warm and nice! We had so much fun, I nice mix of adventure and relaxation. I would definitely recommend a southern caribbean cruise! And by November hurricane season is over so it’s a great time to go.

i cruised royal carribbean  for thanksgiving week a few years ago.  our ports were key west, cozumel, grand cayman, and jamaica.  we didn’t swim in key west, but it was warm enough to swim in all the other locations.

i think november is a great time to go.  as for honeymoon cruise,  every cruise line is different and everyone has their own personal taste.

We just recently were on a cruise from Miami to: Grand Turks (beautiful), private cruise island (amazing) and Nassau, Bahamas. 

Also, cruising from Puerto Rico takes you to some exotic islands (Barbados, st Lucia, st Kitts, st Maarten, St. John’s)

I would recommend you to gooe cruise reviews and most importantly, cruise ports. There are some dangerous cruise ports out there that aren’t even worth getting off the ship! 

 

Have fun planning your honeymoon!
