I've been on a cruise and they're awesome! But for my honeymoon we're wanting to do an all-inclusive to Cancun!
We are going with All Inclusive through Sandals to St. Lucia, we can't wait plus we have more options to enjoy the seven days not stranded on the boot and doing only activites on there. Depends on how many excurisions you want to do too.
we took a cruise for our honeymoon and for the past few vacations and we think they are awesome! The food has always been great and the activities are ok. I like being able to wake up and being in a different port. The only problem with the cruise is that it doesn't have a drink package. Our friends went to a sandals for theirs and they said it was fun but ran out of things to do after a few days.
We were looking at St Lucia too, tnt!! It's so hard to make up my mind! lol
@Phoebenna - Since he has never seen the ocean his first glimpse of it is going to blow him away. Why not go to an all inclusive so that you and he can just soak it up and enjoy it. It will be awesome to see everything through his eyes and it will just be you and him in paradise. Another good thing about all-inclusives? The alcohol is included too and the staff treat you like royalty.
Here's the site I was going to book through.
have you ever been a on cruise? my first time i loved it but i did get seasick. and i'd like to think that i generally have a strong stomach. for a honeymoon, i would go for an all inclusive.
All inclusive....all you can eat and drink. NOOOO worries.There are too many honeymoon packages to list them all. Just look up " Vegas honeymoon "
I love cruises. Multiple places to visit on one vacation, all you can eat, you room, and different activity choices. I don't think you can really go wrong with a cruise!
excuse my ignorance here but what do you mean by all-inclusive? does that mean the total package?
do either of you get motion sickness? if so, why go on a cruise over the open ocean with tons of waves and possibly spend your entire honeymoon sick or sleepin cause you are on dramamine. if you have never been on a cruise before and you get motion sickness i would try a cruise on a river first to see if you get sick. they have cruises down the chattooga river in tn and some other large rivers in the usa. going a day trip cruise would be a way to not spend a ton of money and know if you can handle cruises on a river. once you know that, there are many river cruises in europe (viking river cruises.) charleston sc has a couple hour cruise along the shore line so you can see rainbow row and other sites. that is a pretty big boat. plenty of room for several hundred people. you experience waves from the ocean during that cruise. i personally get motion sickness and went on that charleston cruise and got really sick. i can be on a boat on a lake however and not be sick. with all that said, if you get motion sickness i would go with an all inclusive for the honeymoon and follow my other advice on a different vacation for future reference.
We did Sandals Grande in St Lucia and it was ah-mazing! LOVED it! We have also done a cruise, but for us we preferred the all-inclusive (even though we aren't big drinkers). We liked the additional excursions that wer included with the resort and liked the freedom to do things or hang back on the beach or in our room if we preferred. On the cruise we did for 1st anniversary, we both got a bit seasick at times (which was shocking to us), it was a bit pricey if we wanted to do things off the boat, and the food was just ok. In fairness, we only did a 4 day cruise so it was a smaller, older boat and I am sure the food a little lower rate than you'd get on a bigger cruise ship. The nice thing about cruises is they tend to be more budget frinedly, which sounds like something that might be good for you with the new house. Either way though, I don't think you can go wrong - GL deciding!
I have done both and would personally vote cruise! I also get very sea sick but use the Transderm Scop patch that you place behind your ear and have never gotten sick on a cruise.
I find that the entertainment at all-inclusives is mostly non-existent, the drinks that are included in the package are bottom of the line, the food is cafeteria food and you are stuck at one resort which can get boring.
On a cruise you have 5 star dining, activities and broadway shows everyday, you wake up on a new island everyday and you have room attendants and servers that treat you like Queens and Kings and become your family by the end of your vacation. By far the better time and the most for your money come from a cruise.
I love cruises! We're going on a cruise to the Caribbean then to Disney World!
