    i think it depends on what you want…i’ve been to Machu Pichu and it is hands down AMAZING, but I voted for the Mediterranean cruise just because I think that’d be a more relaxing option, and for our honeymoon we wanted to be as relaxed as possible. Getting to MP can be a bit of a hassle–you can only get there via hiking or a single train route (to a town where you then have to take a bus up, and then you hike around–not a leisurely day though unbelievable), and on the day we went there was like a 4 hour delay because part of the train tracks had washed out, and the next week people got stranded because the tracks were washed out again…so while it’s definitely worth a trip someday, it just doesn’t scream honeymoon to me. UNLESS you want more of an adventure. I’ve never been to Ecuador or the Galapagos though.

    I voted for the cruise because I’ve done a Mediterranean cruise and it was EPIC.  I’d go again in a heartbeat.

    A Mediterranean cruise sounds amazing! So many places that you could visit in one trip!

    @finnaroo:  I have to agree with you.  I’ve been to the Galapagos and that was such an ordeal to get out there!  I got there by ship but left by plane.  Leaving, we had to get up at 4am to get to the marina to catch a water taxi to another island where the airport was.  The water taxi ride was about 1 and a half hours and was so awful.  I puked all over the place.  Then we flew to Quito, spent the night and flew out of Quito at 7am.  I wouldn’t even do one trip for the Galapagos and Machu Pichu – waaaay too much stuff to see at both locations!

    @MissJitterbug:  I don’t know your personality, but if you want to relax, I would choose the Mediterranean.  How many days is your honeymoon going to be?

    We actually went to the Galapagos during our honeymoon, and it was truly one of the most amazing trips I’ve ever taken. I haven’t been to Machu Picchu, but we did some hiking in mainland Ecuador that was sort of similar…sort of. I liked going to the Galapagos because it felt like we were doing something really special for our honeymoon, going somewhere pretty inaccessible and definitely unique in the world. 

    I guess it depends on your budget and what you want from your honeymoon. I imagine that a Mediterranean cruise would be really relaxing and romantic. Ecuador/Peru would be a little less of a relaxing vacation and more of an adventure.

    I think both trips sound amazing, but I voted for the cruise for the same reason the others did–it sounds more relaxing which you might want for your honeymoon.  Maybe save the other trip for an anniversary?  But I don’t know you and your fiance, so maybe adventure sounds like a more appealing honeymoon for you.
