@blessings:  I can’t begin to express to you how awsome cruising would be. There is a sense of adventure and you can book shore excursions that appeal to both of you. You can see lots of places. you can have the beach while he can have excursions like fishing! Goodluck. Cruising the Caribean or Mexico in the off season like this is very cheap!

Would you fly? because the media has caused a ton of hype over small stuff with that too. Passengers from the boat (Carnival) Have said that what the media told us about crap in the halls and lack of food was an out right lie. I have cruised several times before and we are cruising (with Carnival) in June. I have no worries. You have a better chance of getting into a car wreck than you do of something happening on a cruise. The ships get more checks and maitnenance when they dock at each port than the rides do at Disneyland, not because it is unsafe but because they don’t want anything happeing either. In our Capitolistic society the Cruise lines don’t want anything to happen more than you do because if something does happen they take a very large hit. Please don’t let some lies that the media told determine whether or not a cruise is good for you or not. Perhaps you don’t like the itenerary or you would prefer a resort, then by all means don’t cruise. But don’t decide based on some quack trying to get a rise out of people by stretching the truth and fabricating their own. Best of Luck with whatever you choose 🙂

I don’t really feel like a cruise would appeal to an adventurous sort of person – cruises are more like resorts on water – fun, but not really the same vibe of an “outsdoorsy” type adventure.  Now, sailing… that might be an option!  You could get some beach time in, and he could take charge of the boat.

But if boats entirely scare you, there’s other ways to meet in the middle.  We’re pretty outdoorsy ourselves – he proposed to me while camping, we go hiking a lot, are interested in climbing.  We also love the ocean without being “beachy” type people.

My honeymoon will be in August, and we’re planning on going to Canada for a few weeks – there will be a little time at a woodsy resort in Nova Scotia, then some serious hiking, kayaking, and whale watching in Gros Morne National Park in Newfoundland, and then a couple of days in somewhere like St. Johns, or perhaps in the states, maybe Bar Harbor.  That’s going to cover our adventure yen, our need for some spa-like relaxation, and a little more beachy summer type of fun, all with wonderful sea food at the ready.

Do you have a general area you’re looking to stay within?  Maybe a cabin by the great lakes – sort of beach like, but also lots of opportunities for adventure/outdoorsiness as well.

@mjoyelle:  The sailing is an awesome idea too! I think cruises have adventure because of the excursions but its true that if you just stay on the boat or walk the port it would be more like a resort.

@blessings:  All of the cruise fiascos are with Carnival ships. Carnival is awful and i’d never cruise with them. I’ve been on 6 cruises with Royal Caribbean and they are fantastic.
