Why you should Honeymoon at Sea

04 Aug 2016 | by Becci Dunne
You’ve spent months intricately finalising all the details of your big day, and now it’s time to think about your dream honeymoon. Sunkissed beaches? Check. Beautiful cities? Check. Complete relaxation? Double check. But finding the perfect honeymoon that combines all these must be hard to find right? Wrong. A honeymoon cruise means you’ll get all of this, plus so much more.

Your floating hotel at sea provides all you need for an unforgettable honeymoon; luxurious spas, celebrity-chef restaurants, top-notch bars and world-class entertainment. Imagine waking up every day to a new and exciting destination, with the added bonus of only having to unpack once!

Cruise lines like Royal Caribbean, Celebrity Cruises, Princess Cruises, Carnival Cruise Line, and P&O Cruises offer a great selection of wedding and honeymoon packages. Or, if you fancy splashing out on a little luxury, try Crystal Cruises.

 

PICKING THE PERFECT ITINERARY

With so many different itineraries to choose from, you’ll need to decide what’s the right destination for you and your honeymoon, and how much exactly you want to be doing! If total relaxation is what you’re after, imagine an idyllic cruise around the Caribbean Islands or the paradise isles of the South Pacific; with sugar white sands and turquoise waters, it’s what dream honeymoons are made of.

Or, if you’d rather a leisurely sightseeing city break, packed full of romance, history and culture, try a sailing around the beautiful ports of the Mediterranean. Picture yourself gliding through the canal ways of Venice on a gondola, or walking hand-in-hand down the Spanish Steps in Rome.

 

LIVING THE SUITE LIFE

Why settle for an inside cabin when you can splurge on a beautiful balcony or a luxurious suite? It is your honeymoon after all. A balcony stateroom has all the essentials you’ll need from your home-away-from-home, plus the added benefit of your own private balcony area to enjoy unparalleled views as far as the eye can see. 

But, if you really want something special for your honeymoon, then booking a suite really is a must-do; trust us when we say it is totally worth the extra cost for the exclusive perks you’ll receive. Suite perks do vary by cruise line, but imagine sailing from port to port surrounded by plush in-suite furnishings, with a personal butler and concierge service, priority embarkation and disembarkation, al-fresco dining in the comfort of your suite, a large open sun deck area, and a nice bottle of bubbly upon arrival. Some suites even have an outdoor Jacuzzi – heaven!

 

HONEYMOON WISHES REGISTRY

Once you’ve booked your dream honeymoon cruise, friends and family can treat you to an array of cruise add-ons to help make your honeymoon that little bit more special; and totally unforgettable. Your loved ones can purchase exciting shore excursions, romantic dinners in some of the finest restaurants at sea, help pay towards a cabin upgrade, organise a photography or video keepsake for you to treasure forever, or there’s a great selection of spas at sea to choose a luxurious couples spa treatments from. They can even help contribute to the cost of your cruise fare!

 


Sarah, one of our very own cruise specialists, went on her honeymoon last year around the Caribbean islands, sailing aboard Royal Caribbean’s Independence of the Seas®.
“We went in January 2015 and it was amazing. With the destination being in the Caribbean it was really romantic for a honeymoon. I would certainly recommend a cruise holiday for honeymooners – it has got everything that you want, lots to do and plenty of relaxing!” Sarah Savage, Cruise Specialist
