Honeymoon Booked...YAY!

For our honeymoon we will be spending 3 nights in Rome and then departing on a 12 night cruise of Greece and the Eastern Mediterranean. The stops include Italy, Greece, Turkey & Egypt. We're hoping to do a day trip to Florence during our time in Rome since we've been there before. We used miles and will be flying Business Class on British Airways.

Originally I was very turned off by the idea of a cruise. FI and I are big travelers and love road trips, backpacking, etc. But after our last trip to Europe a cruise seemed like a great way to travel, especially in Eastern Europe, without the headache. I can't wait to explore all of the amazing stops.

FI and I will return to our favorite location for one of our anniversaries, probably 5 year.

Awesome! We'll be heading to the Mediterranean as well, but only staying in the Greek islands. Turkey & Egypt sound really cool! I always wanted to go to Egypt and see the Pyramids.

Cruise is nice b/c I assume you don't have to worry too much about planning. You just show up!

we booked so far in advance because we were traveling so far and we're using miles to get there. If you are using miles book early. Seats are generally released 11 months prior and go quickly. If not I think it depends on the popularity of your location and if you want the "honeymoon suite."

We started out with a travel agent that FI's family has worked with for years, but we ended up just booking and researching ourselves.

that's cool! I'm jealous, I'm very curious about going to Turkey and Egypt at some point in my life. At least you've been to Europe before, so taking a cruise will just add some extra comfort to the trip ;).
