Honeymoon Cruise??

Since my friend is gifting us our honeymoon, im trying to find something that wont break the bank! But the honeymoon deals are like $3-5000 for all inclusive. I just wouldnt even feel right asking  someone to but me a vacay like that! SO my mom is a religious cruiser. She told me to check out Carnival. I can get a 7 day from $3-400 each. Dont have to worry about food or flights and there are 5 ports in Fla. I seen a post previously about crusies too. Which one of you went on a cruise? Tell me your experience? And anything i should know or be aware of before this trip!!

Me and DH took went on a cruise for our honeymoon this past June. Went cruised Norwegian sky and our ports were in Bahamas. In my honest opinion, it depends on what you want to do and what you like to do. This was my first cruise but DH had been on several on Carnival and loved all of them. He told me about the Captain's Ball, the buffets bustling over with crab and lobster & the shows! We love dining and dressing to the nine's so I was looking forward to this cruise. Sadly, they discontinued the Captain's Ball five years ago which angered me beyond belief because when I called and asked, they said yes they did. The buffets did not serve crab or lobster and if you wanted these items, you had to pay extra for them in the three restaurants on board. And there were NO SHOWS. This was very disappointing to me because the things I wanted to do we didn't.


All cruise lines are different and do different things and it depends on the ship as well. Do some research and I am sure the ladies on here will give you some good insight! We are taking a cruise aboard Carnival next year and I am looking forward to it! From all the pictures my hubby has shown me, I would have enjoyed a Carnival cruise more!

I have heard Norwegian has less to offer than most but thats literally all i know! And they dont really have Norweigan in Florida from what i have researched. Im a little worried about being on a boat for a week. I have been warned notto do 7 days for my first cruise unless you have like 4 ports of call. A captians cruise sounds nice! I would have enjoyed that a classy dress and dinner with DH. Well maybe you can take a vacay and a better cruise next time and have too much fun!

For your first cruise I would suggest not doing seven days either. We did four days and three nights and stayed the weekend in Miami. I had a great time in Miami! After about the third day, I was ready to get to Miami. And yes, we are definitely going Carnival for our next cruise because Mrs. Young and Mr. Young love dressing to the nines!

I always hear good things about cruises. I would of loved to go on a cruise but I am too scared too. I get sea sick way to bad and I will have a panic attack! Lol Maybe one of these years I can just suck it up and go on a cruise!


but anyways,  that sounds like so much fun and very reasonable!
