I’m a Carnival Gal. Love a party. 

I’m in a quandary about doing a cruise honeymoon or a land all inclusive. Most of my vacations are cruises, but that’s cause I love cruises way too much. I’m trying to lean toward doing something different, but I fear I’ll miss the boat and ocean too much.

Cruises freak me out … I have no desire to ever go on one. I don’t like the idea of being on someone else’s “time” when i’m on vacation, and being in such close quarters with strangers ….

@wifegoodman:  Which did you go on??

We are thinking about Freedom of the Seas for our Honeymoon!

It’d be my 4th Royal, but his first. I just love Royal’s product more than Carnivals. Aaaand the Royal Promenades.

I’ve only been on one cruise and it was Princess. I would love to go again if I could.

I went on a Carnival cruise and HATED it.  People told me that RC was a lot less hokey – I’d love to go again sometime, hopefully much better than the first time around.

I’ve been on three cruises in a period of three years–Carnival, Disney and Carnival. I LOVED the Carnival cruise, and I think it would have been even MORE fun if it would have been on my honeymoon. I saw couples honeymooning on the Disney cruise and I asked them if they were having fun and THEY.WERE.NOT. So, nix Disney for a honeymoon cruise if you’re even considering it. The food on the Disney cruise was a little better than the Carnival food, and the night shows on the Disney cruise looked like a lot more expensive productions; however, they were definitely aimed for younger viewers. The Carnival cruise had comedians, dance clubs, karaoke, fun shows and LITERALLY something going on all the time. I also thought the Carnival stops were great–we stopped in Cozumel and Key West and it was incredible! ….Just my 2 cents!

@honeybee1999:  I saw your comment after I posted my last little blurb.
My hubby and I went all-inclusive (Sandals), Jamaica for our honeymoon. Compared to a cruise, it sucked. You have to find stuff to do, and the night life on the all-inclusive resorts are for older crowds. I think the cruises are meant for younger people in the 20-30 age group. Plus on a cruise you get to visit all those fun ports and see a little bit of everything! I like that on the ship there is more than 1 or 2 night activities–you can pick something to fit what you’re interested in!

From my personal experience, keep on CRUISIN’!

Darling Husband and I went on our first cruise for our honeymoon.  We left out of Bayonne, NJ and went to Bermuda on Royal Carribean’s Explorer of the Seas.  I instantly fell in love with thought of cruising for our vacations!  It’s so neat to be able to have all inclusive breakfast, lunch, and dinner; the dinner each night was phenomenal!  There are so many things to do.  It was great just to relax outside on the pool deck, soaking in the sun, and being able to be with one another!  Bermuda was beautiful too.  I loved that we were ableto leave the ship early and have plenty of time to do things before our 8:30 PM dinner.  Ah, to rewind back to that week!

ETA: I think one of the best things about cruises is that you don’t have to worry about where you’re going to eat, what sort of activities you can find for the day, how you’re going to get somewhere, etc.  It’s a lot more relaxing.

@KateByDesign:  ugh Carnival was our first cruise too and we also HATED it, it made us never want to cruise again.  It just was so not our style.

 

We love cruising on Norwegian, it has a great party atmoshpere, a good mix of ages and we LOVE that there are no set dining times. We’re going on our 4th NCL cruise in May and can’t wait to head to Belize.
