i just came back from a cruise to alaska. alaska is gorgeous. we went with holland america. we did the inside passage because it was our first time cruising ever so we decided to go with a smoother route.


one of my bf’s friends on the other hand went on a cruise to hawaii. the seas were rough so i think he was a little bit out of it for a day or two ;D 


i’ve been to hawaii, though and if i have to compare– i honestly had more fun in hawaii. but maybe that’s because there’s more freedom in DIY-ing a trip. but you can’t really go wrong with either destination. 🙂

A cruise to Alaska is supposed to be Frickin’ AMAZING

BUT it has a reputation of attracting an older / retired crowd… if you can see past that you’ll still have an INCREDIBLE TIME

Alaska requires one to be truly fit and adventurous… so you’ll be able to do things that the older folks cannot


Carnival… is also the parent company of several other cruise lines, I’d call up their Customer Service reps to see if the “Onboard Cruise Passages Certificate” that you bought is transferable to one of their other Cruise Lines as well.. may be.

Carnival owns… Princess & Holland America, BOTH lines that will cruising in Europe in 2014

And don’t be shy… be sure and tell the rep it is your Honeymoon… and you are disappointed that Carnival has pulled out of Europe for 2014

Hope this helps,

PS… With all the recent incidents on cruise ships under the Carnival umbrella, cruise ships are taking a hit (especially this Co.) so chances are good IMO that someone is going to listen to you / give you a break.

Otherwise, you will probably see bargain popping up in the near future, as ships go wanting of passengers in the months to come, so Cruise Lines start offering Sales, Deals, Promos, Bonus Items etc.

And if you haven’t you might want to join Carnival’s Cruising Loyalty Program… and also Cruise Critic so you can hear about things as they come up.

Why don’t you look into Royal Caribbean or another cruise line? RC does Europe all the time and have been having multiple sales on their websites.
