Cruise For Honeymoon


Recommended Posts

Long time listener, first time caller...

 

Fiancé and I are potentially looking at a cruise for our honeymoon since we're struggling to come up with a honeymoon destination.  I've been on a few cruises (2 with Princess, 2 with Celebrity), and she's been on 2 I believe (Celebrity and Disney).  The Princess cruises were over a decade ago, and I remember them geared for young families and the most recent Celebrity Cruise was on a pretty significant older age group which wasn't the same as the previous celebrity.  Looking at taking a Carribean Cruise.  Which cruise lines would you suggest?

Not enough info...

A good cruise specialist TA would help. They’ll interview you regarding you overall travel experiences, preferences, expectations, key demographics and the value/quality quotient that matches your comfort level.

This important step might find you opting for the Mexican Riviera or even Polynesia (rather than the Caribbean) on other than the mass market lines you’ve previously experienced.

Definitely depends on what you are looking for.  Do you want a lot of activities to keep busy. A 'family friendly' type ship. A party atmosphere or more of a 'refined' or relaxed situation. 

We are in our 50's, have been on Norwegian, Royal Caribbean, and Princess. We're actually  having an 'at sea' wedding on Princess, simply because we feel that line isn't geared to the 'family fun' atmosphere with tons of kids running around as much as NCL or RCI. (not child bashing just saying:)

Also need to take into account if you want to sail from a port you can drive to vs. flying  and how long of a cruise you want. Shorter ones 'usually' tend to have more children, longer ones, say over 12-14 days not so much.  Holiday cruises tend to be 'full' much more than the off seasons as well.
