My fiance and I will be going on a 7-day cruise out of Miami for our honeymoon on the Norwegian Getaway. There are also several other ships leaving that same day. I’m nervous that we may have guests that want to sail on our honeymoon ship because it will be brandnew and I am just flat out not okay with that. What is a polite way to indicate to our guests what we will doing for our honeymoon and that we prefer guests to sail on a different ship, if deciding to cruise? Thanks!

@pinkrose23: are a lot of your guests planning to cruise right after your wedding? This seems like a very unlikely issue.

@pinkrose23: I really can’t imagine this will be an issue. No one has asked for any details about my honeymoon. My mother, who booked it, joked about coming along, but it was a joke.

There is no polite way to tell your guests how to spend there time and money. It’s probably a non issue, but if it becomes a problem you’ll need to be a good sport.

@pinkrose23: There is no polite way to say that.

There must be a part of the story missing, why would that be likely?

Umm, there is literally no polite way to say, “This is our special honeymoon ship and so we want it all to ourselves even though there will be thousands of other people on it we don’t want any of those other people to be our wedding guests. So if you randomly have any intention of going on a cruise during our honeymoon, it better not be on our special honeymoon ship!’

Have any guests indicated to you that they are planning on going on the exact same cruise/ship as you? This seems like an EXTREMELY unlikely situation. Plus, cruise ships are huge, I’m sure you wouldn’t even notice if someone you knew was on the ship with you. Plus, in the unlikely event that this situation does happen, they probably want their own vacation and probably aren’t focused on crashing yours aha.

I think your only choice is to book every room on the ship so that it’s just you and your husband on board.

+1 this is the best solution.

Some of the guests know (mostly FI’s immediate family) that we are going on a cruise and know which ship. I’m just hoping people use common sense and don’t go on our honeymoon with us. I know a ship is big and we probably wouldn’t run into anyone often, but I just don’t want to get tied up going out to dinner and having drinks, etc with family, that’s what the wedding was for. Hmmm

@pinkrose23: How about not telling them the honeymoon plans? Honestly, if you try to tell the guests that you don’t want them on the same cruise, it will come off as bitchy. It doesn’t matter how nice of a tone you say it in, it’s still “I don’t wanna share my cruise ship with you people!” Nobody is forcing you to interact with others if anyone in your guest list happens to be on the same ship.
