Romantic dinners for two, watching the sun set from your balcony, dancing the night away under the stars, champagne breakfast in bed in your stateroom, or cocktails by the pool. It all depends on what makes you happy. Honeymoon cruising is widely popular. If you want to enjoy having the best of both worlds on your honeymoon; doing everything or nothing at all, then why not embark on a honeymoon cruise? Enjoy the romance at sea - where you can do as much or as little as you want.
A honeymoon cruise is designed to be simple, worry-free and intimate or take your family and friends along with you to enjoy the celebration of your new life together. Accommodations can also be reserved for them.
Taking a cruise for your honeymoon is a terrific, hassle-free vacation option. It is important to figure out what type of honeymoon you want. Are you active, outdoorsy types? Do you prefer a low-key onboard ambience? Are you luxury-seekers, or do you prefer more informal, low cost accommodations?
You might not get special treatment by identifying yourself as a honeymooner, but if you have a travel agent who specializes in cruises and has a good relationship with the cruise line, you might get some amenities at no charge. Don't count on anything, but do ask your cruise consultant to let the line know that you're on your honeymoon.
If you're on a ship with traditional dining and you want a table for two, request it early and, particularly with this request, make sure the cruise line knows that it's because you're on your honeymoon. Otherwise, you could find yourself sharing those special meals at a table filled with newfound friends.
Some cruise lines offer couples massages in the spa and, occasionally, in your room or suite. If you want that and the line allows you to book the spa treatment early, do so. Couples massages sell out very quickly, so book as soon as you can.
