    I would probably go on one of the cruises.  San Francisco is neat but I don’t know what you would do there for five days.  I might have that opinion because i’ve been there a billion times so maybe you could find enough stuff to keep yourselves occupied, who knows.

    I’d go for Boston, but that’s a personal preference since I and Fiance want to go at some point. Also, we’re also just fonder of taking “trips” that are closer to home to avoid high costs of travel.

    If it were me, I’d go to NYC. But that’s just because neither of us have ever been (well, I technically have but was like 4 so don’t remember!). However, you don’t seem crazy about doing that… So I voted for the Eastern Caribbean cruise. Cruises are wonderful,  so easy, and it sounds like it is going to some neat places. I am definitely pro-cruise!

    Bermuda cruise! Especially if he doesn’t like flying, it’s the best option.

    I live in NYC, and I absolutely love it, so the idea of visiting and enjoying splurges sounds like a great idea to me πŸ™‚  If you come here and want to add some beach time in to the mix, I’d recommend Sandy Hook, a beach island about an hour south of the city (or a 30 minute, gorgeous ferry ride).  We always say that Sandy Hook feels like we’ve flown somewhere for a vacation, so it might be a good option.  There are a ton of different beaches to choose from, too, including a nude beach!

    Though I’ve never been on one, cruises to me sound miserable.  I dont’ know what it is, but I have no desire to be crammed into cabins on a ship with thousands of other people vying for space and activities.  I know lots of people LOVE them, but I’d rather see the carribbean from a hotel/resort. 

    If your Darling Husband doesn’t like flying, out of those options I’d pick NYC.  It’s a different pace than the islands, and you’re familiar so it’s easy to know where to go and what to see.  Plus, I love love love NYC and have been fortunate to go several times…I would love more opportunities to go because it’s a spectacle in and of itself.  If he’s never been and has you to show him around like a pro–I’d say go that route.  Eat the best food, and take advantage of everything you can w/in your budget!

    @UpstateCait:   Could you go on another cruise line? That could be a different experience. Could he get some xanax for the flight? I’m really not trying to push drugs on anyone, but it could be very helpful.

    Also re: Disney – my parents took me and my sister when we were 8 and 5, and we did Tower of Terror and the roller coasters!

    Even though I’m from Boston and would normally promote my hometown, it’s not going to be much different from NYC in October. 

    I was in SF in September, but had unseasonably warm temps. You’ll likely have 40-50 degree days, wind & rain, and maybe a few days of sun and near-60. Cold at night, especially on the water. Wine country would have slightly better weather, but you’d need to rent a car for a minimum of 1 day. Five days is enough for Alcatraz, the MoMA, the Wharf, Golden Gate Park, China Town, and a day in wine country. Strongly suggest Muir Woods if you go, the giant redwoods are truly magnificent.

    Bermuda… again, I didn’t go in Oct. so I don’t know the fall weather. But if it’s a “sure thing” that you’ll enjoy, maybe do it and add some things you didn’t have or do the first time around. Upgrades? Anything you didn’t see on the island the first time, or wish you’d done? If there’s enough to keep you both happy and occupied, I’d say go for it and relive those Honeymoon memories πŸ˜€

    Disney… nothing to say here, I haven’t been since I was 12.

    Eastern Carib… well, probably the warmest trip! No experience here.

    Honestly I’m going to go with New York. I know cruises are great but since I’ve only ever been on one (Disney cruise) and I felt it’s something I can live without as far as vacations, but I’ve been to New York multiple times and never even begun to experience the glamour and awesome fun times that the city has to offer, I vote for New York. Especially if you have money saved up for the vacation, go to NYC and spend a week in luxury there. My backup option to this would be San Fran!
