cruise-1578528_1920

Your honeymoon is perhaps the most romantic holiday you’ll take as a couple and signifies the start of your married life together – no pressure! – which can make planning your honeymoon a little stressful.

If you’re struggling to choose just one destination, then a honeymoon cruise could be the perfect option. Sail along the seas, enjoy fine dining and stop off and at a variety of exotic locations, while making memories that will last a lifetime.

With that in mind, here are some tips to help you plan the perfect honeymoon cruise.

Gift Registry

Depending on the cruise you book, certain agents and companies offer their own honeymoon registry service. Rather than receiving mountains of gifts, you could ask that your guests instead put toward your cruise, meaning you can upgrade your room or enjoy gourmet dining, making your honeymoon all the more special.

Consider Your Budget

If you’re on a tight schedule or have a limited budget – let’s face it, weddings are expensive! – then you’ll be delighted to know that honeymoon cruises come in all lengths. If you can’t afford to splurge on a two-week luxury cruise, opt for a mini-moon on a long weekend cruise – companies like Planet Cruise offer a range of durations.

Cater to your Interests

While you may dream of cruising around the Med or travelling further afield to South Asia, cruises now come in all shapes and sizes. Do you love film? Are you obsessed with all things Disney? Or have you always wanted to go to Comic Con? There are cruises catered to all of these and many, many more!

Make it Romantic

Imagine arriving at your cabin to find a bottle of champagne, roses and chocolates waiting for you. Speak to your agent or cruise operator to find out what romance/honeymoon packages they offer, to start your honeymoon off in romantic style.

Book Spa Treatments

There is no better way to relax together than by pampering yourselves. When you book your cruise, make sure you enquire about the onboard spa treatments. Reconnect with a couple’s cruise with an ocean view, indulge in a wrap or facial, or take a relaxing soak in a hot tub.

Marry Onboard

Alternatively, why not combine your wedding and honeymoon? There are two options here: you could marry onboard your cruise, or arrange to tie the knot during an excursion. No matter which you choose, you’ll have the advantage of being able to start your honeymoon straight away!
