My dad and I did a Disney Med cruise and it was amazing!  The only thing I would caution you about is that you won’t get much down time.  Our 11 day cruise only had 2 non-port days and on the port days it was always go go go.  If that’s what you are looking for for your honeymoon, then awesome!  😀

We originally wanted to do a Med. Cruise as well but ultimately decided against it.

For one thing there weren’t too many available right after our wedding. We also want to experience the culture, the people and see more of each city. Especially since it’s our first time in Erope. When your on a cruise you only get so many hours in a city and there may be additional travel time as well.

We decided on italy, venice, florence, sorrento and rome. I also looked into paris, amsterdam, bruges and fankfurt. I believe dublin & london could work with paris also. I think sticking with a 3 hour train ride between cities would work well.

I know a number of people who have the cruise and loved it. It’s a great way to go if you want something more relaxing.

Fiance and I initially were set on doing a 12 day Med Cruise, but like dodgercpkl said, the itinerary looked like it was going to be pretty hectic with so many port days.  As much as I want to go back to Europe, I wanted a more relaxing vacation!  So it’s up to you guys and what kind of a honeymoon you’re looking for!

We are doing a tour that is Rome, Veince, Capri, Pompeii, and Florence. Oh and Sorrento, we are super stoked. I have been to Italy once but just the Alps part, so even though it may be a little nuts for our honeymoon, it was the only time we know we would get to go to Italy so we are making the best of it!

I so so so want to go to Europe for our honeymoon! I have heard that cruises are a bit hectic, have you looked into a trip that takes you to like three European cities that’s all-inclusive? Those seem to be more reasonably priced and you get a certain number of days per city. You have the choice to go anywhere or relax when you’re actually in the cities, though!

We just got back from our Italy honeymoon!  We also considered a cruise, but ended up deciding that we wanted more flexibility than cruises offer, and we were able to plan a trip for much less.  We stayed at a home base in Tuscany and did Venice, Pisa, Lucca, Florence, and Cinque Terre.  Then we did Rome for a few days, then stayed in Positano for a few days.  One thing to keep in mind if you do choose to forego the cruise, flights aren’t always cheaper at the larger airports.  We assumed flying in and out of Rome made the most sense, but in the end, flying into places like Pisa, Florence, Naples, etc. were cheaper and worked with our itinerary better.
