Hello fellow Bees!
Maybe some of you have done this, but I need opinions/advice! 🙂
For our honeymoon next early November, we’re looking at doing part Disney World and then part cruise. There is little, if any, price difference between doing the cruise first or last. We would spend about 6 days at Destination Wedding then go on a 3 night cruise (departure days are Thursdays for the ones we’re looking at) out of Port Canavaral (sp?).
Has any one done something similar and have a preference one way or another?
Some days I go cruise first so that we wouldn’t have to worry about gifts & such taking up space in the room at the end, but then again, other days, what better way to end our honeymoon than by relaxing on a beach or by a pool.
Neither of us has been on a cruise, but I’ve been to Destination Wedding a few times. He has not. AS much as I was initally opposed to the idea, it’s definitely grown on me and this way, he gets what he wants, which is to be active, and I get what I want which is to go somewhere tropical.
So bees, any thoughts????

I would do the cruise for longer than 3 days and do Disneyworld for less time. A cruise is going to be much more romantic and relaxing for a honeymoon than Destination Wedding and after 6 days at Destination Wedding I would just be SO exhausted (especially right after your wedding) that getting on a cruise ship would just drain me totally. Also, a 3 day cruise is REALLY short. Its basically just one day at sea, one day at a port and one day back at sea. You dont really get very much out of it. Honestly I would skip Destination Wedding all together and just go on a longer cruise. I went on a 7 day cruise and it was the perfect amount of time…maybe even too short!

totheislnds we would leave from Port Canaveral and go to the Bahamas. It’s only about an hours drive and I drive double that twice a day, 3 days a week for work. I’m leaning towards ending with the cruise most of the time, but I want to make sure that we get the maximum honeymoon with minimal travel time.
PitBulLover & kitzy – I would love to go on a longer cruise but because of his school schedule (he’s an electrical apprentice and has school 2 nights a week), it’s not really an option right now. The dates don’t work out well. We’re leaving on either a Thursday or Friday the Saturday after the wedding, so we’ll have a bit of downtime in between.
He’s not a huge travel person, has no real desire to leave the continental United States so trying to find a destination and a plan that makes us both happy has been a challenge. Neither of us is interested in a 12 hour flight to Hawaii, if we go could for a full two weeks, then maybe, but right now, we get about 10 or 11 days. Nothing is set in stone yet, but I’m looking into different options.
