Whoooaa officially jealous! You’re going to absolutely love it. I’ve been on 2 Disney cruises and they were both fantastic. It’ll be just that much better doing it in the Mediterrannean and on your honeymoon!

We are going on a Carnival cruise too and I think it’s also on the Valor. Our cruise will go to Cayman Islands, Belize, Honduras and Cozumel. I can’t wait. I have been on so many cruises, but this will be the first time having a room with a balcony. I had to go all out for our honeymoon 🙂 Have fun on your cruise.

We went on a Carnival cruise to Alaska! It was awesome and totally DH and me!
ETA: I’ve been on both Carnival and Royal Carribean cruises (which are typically priced really similar) and think the RC ships are nicer, have more activities, and better food.

We’ve sailed on Carnival Valor a few years ago. You will love it!!! Awesome ship and your itinerary is awesome. Have a great time!

My Fiance and I took that exact cruise this past February! We went the week of V-day… he actually proposed while we were in St. Thomas! It’s an awesome cruise. If you’re into excursions, I totally recommend the ATV tour in St. Maarten & the Segway tour in Barbados! 😀
We’re hoping to do a Mediterranean cruise for our honeymoon… I’m really hoping to see Italy & Egypt. :o)

Were going on a cruise for our honeymoon and I’m soo excited! Carribean Princess out of New York City heading to San Juan, Grand Turk, St. Tomas and Bermuda. 9 days of awesomeness.
I hope my Fiance will like it (he’s never been on a cruise before) One of the main reasons we chose it is because we can just drive down to the cruise terminal the day after our wedding!

@calico61979: Great itinerary! San Juan and St Thomas are great. San Juan has El Morro and yummy 50 cent and dollar beers with great food. St Thomas has Magan’s Bay which is one of Nat Geographic’s Top 10 most beautiful beaches!!! We are frequent cruisers so not cruising for our honeymoon, but heading back to both of those ports in two weeks for a vacay on Celebrity. 🙂 We’ve been on every line in pretty much every port!

We are we are!! Royal Carribean Freedom of the Seas, 7 night Eastern Caribbean! We go to CocoCay Bahamas, St. Marteen, and St. Thomas! We are gone all of Thanksgiving week, which is nice because it’s free days off of work! And Thanksgiving is my FAVORITE holiday, so we will spend our first one as husband and wife just us! 🙂

@calico61979:I wanna go on this cruise so bad! Fiance thinks it’s too expensive and we should just do a 5 day to bahamas. But, I’m gonna go ahead and book this because I reallllly want to go on it!

well, personally I want at least 7 days. it takes a few days to get used to the ship and all the things to do. Yes, cruises can be expensive, but I don’t think it is that much more to do a 7 day than a 5 day. We have an inside cabin because it is the cheapest. I know that sounds terrible, but we won’t be in the room that much and it will be fine for us. Also, you can save money not getting all the extras. I am really excited about these ports as I have heard good things about all of them. Good Luck getting the cruise you want!

I just sat Fiance down and told him he’s making me upset b/c he’s not on board with this, and a cruise is really the cheapest honeymoon option other than driving down to Savannah (but we’re already doing a half marathon in Savannah in Nov and staying in Historic part of town). I went to cruisecritic.com and the Bahamian cruise received a lot of poor reviews. So, Fiance looked at me, and said okay, book the 7 Day Western Carribbean to San Juan etc!! Eep so excited, we’re cruise twins lol!

we are! we just booked it this wk. we’re going on a carnival cruise to cozumel, hunduras, belize and grand caymen. we wanted to go somewhere neither of us have been before and thought this one looked amazing. Fiance has never been on a cruise before, and i’ve never had a nice cabin with a balcony before. come to think of it, we’ve never been on a ‘real’ vacation together before. can’t wait!!
