    This sounds like a good time to establich yourselves as adults who are now married.  I wouldn’t want to honeymoon with family and I certainly wouldn’t be separated from my new husband that shortly after the wedding.

    Wow do you have that much annual leave from work?

    Can you cancel your honeymoon and do it another time?

    Since I’ve been married I’ve fought hard for my right to turn down family obligations in order to be my own family with my husband. Your honeymoon should honestly be a good enough reason to say no, but if you have the time and money to extend your h-moon into the family trip I think that’s the only other option.

    Honestly it’s your grandma’s 90th birthday. I would do anything to be there if it was my grandma’s 90th. How many times will the family take a big cruise like this?

    @PinkMagnolia: totally agree

    Years from now when your grandma is no longer with you you will wish you went on this cruise! You will still have a few alone days with your husband but then you can spend time with him and your family.

    I hate to say it but i would definitely do the cruise (you AND your husband) with your family. If it was just your mom asking or something I might feel differently, but I think grandmas should get more leway. 

    I think I would either try to extend the trip so that you get a few (at least 3) days alone with your husband before or after the trip, maybe in one of the port cities? Or postpone your honeymoon and do a different trip a little later to somewhere else with him.

    IMO since you’d only have to cut your honeymoon short by a day, I say get the best of both worlds and do both. Have your honeymoon, and since conveniently enough you’ll be over there anyway, then (both of you) join them on the cruise and extend the celebration. No downside that I can see unless you can’t get time from work or something.

    FWIW my SIL had to back out of an important family get together immediately after their honeymoon because of vacation time – my mother demanded my brother NOT come alone and leave his new bride behind (way to go, Mom!). If for some reason you can’t do this together, go home together. Your family should understand.
