@eam002: I want to hear more about this!  How long is your flight?  Greece is amazing.  That’s my #1 place to go.  I cant believe you found such a reasonable deal!

@Lindsaygooding:Our flight is prettty long..we leave sunday at 1:50 and will finally arrive in Santorini on Monday by noon. Sooo its long..but coming back will not be bad due to the change in days…My fiance actually surprised me with the Honeymoon and he did lots and lots of research. We went through expedia (He spoke with them ALOT). The hotel we are staying at is a 3/4 star hotel but it ranks in the top 10 hotels to stay in there due to the hospitality and experience. We are going during peak season too, so depending on where you are leaving from..$4,300 is the very highest. PM me if your really interested and I’ll give you more info…It is definitly do able if you have $5,500…and I would say even if your budget is $5,000 you can probably do it..it all depends on the month 🙂

My Fiance and I just decided that now is the time for us to go on a vacation like this, since we have money saved up, plus we wanted more than just a beach destination…this gives us both beach and history!

  • Wedding: August 2010

Destination: Varadero, Cuba

Resort: Barcelo Solymar

What kind of room? It was a “bungalow suite”; basically a townhouse.  It had a living room, ‘kitchenette’, 1.5 baths, a huge bedroom and a balcony.  It was pretty awesome!

How many days? One week

How much will it cost you? It was about $3000 Cdn.  However, we did a ‘late’ honeymoon, and it was over New Years, so all the prices were higher.  After we booked we went back days later, and the price had gone up about $500 a person.

Where are you travelling from? Toronto

We also did a “mini-moon” the weekend after the wedding, where we stayed in a hotel in Toronto and went out for dinner and a play.  We live in a suburb city about 40 min from downtown.  It was really nice.  I think if you can’t go on a honeymoon right after your wedding (we had just moved and both started new jobs so could not get the time off), even a night in a nearby city feels really nice.

@jbaby731: That’s so cool that we will both be there at the same time! I was wondering how the heck you managed to get your trip for that price but I remember that my Fiance begged me to upgrade to the preferred suite and that must be the reason for the difference. Not worth it in my mind haha but I still can’t wait to be there!
