We did Destin, FL for a beach vacay last summer. It definitely was't all inclusive but we packed a cooler with drinks and sandwiches and literally didn't move from the beach from 10am until 6 pm...it was great, the water was perfect and we had a blast. The restaurants were fabulous and night life was fun as well,.

We dont have passports either and have been looking for good honeymoon options. We postponed our honeymoon till next year but im still looking and in our research we thought about Key West, U.S. Virigan Islands, Puerto Rico or a cruise.  


None of which you need passports as other ladies have said. If you are on a tight budget though, US Virgin Islands are very EXPENSIVE! Plan to spend about $3500.00-$4000.00.  Key West is much less expensive and you can get packages there resaonably priced. Puerto Rico I found to be cheaper than Key West even!


If you just want to be near a beach I recommend looking at www.VRBO.com they have vacation rentals all over the place and you can get good deals on condos, beach houses etc. The thing about resorts is there are resort fees that you have to pay while you stay. So say if your going to Puerto Rico for example you could save money by renting a condo on the beach. Now if the money is not an issue then resort it up! :) Do your homework though! Also if you know anyone with a timeshare somewhere then take advantage of that! All you normally pay is the cleaning fee. My sister went to Disney World on her honeymoon and stayed in my uncles time share near the park. They paid $50.00 for a cleaning fee for a week! Thing about those is that they book quick though!


Lastly you could do a closed loop cruise (which is what we are doing) and you wont need a passport for that. We decided to do a cruise to Bermuda. I found several under $1500.00 bucks, all inclusive of course and anywhere from 3-7 days long! HTH! :)


I'm taking a "Closed Loop" cruise, do I need a passport?


Most cruises beginning and ending in the U.S. are considered "Closed Loop," meaning they begin and end at the same port in the U.S. For instance, if you board a cruise ship at Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and after visiting at least one foreign port of call, such as Bermuda, or Cancun, return back to Fort Lauderdale, you have taken a closed loop cruise.


If, on the other hand, you - say - board a cruise ship in San Diego, California, sail through the Panama Canal (stopping at a foreign port during the cruise), and end the cruise in Miami, Florida, you have not taken a closed loop cruise and the following information does not apply to you.

@mrsharris-that article went on to say:


"HOWEVER, it is possible that one or more of the Caribbean Islands on your itinerary, does require you to have a passport to enter their country. In that case, it is very possible that the cruise line will require you to have a passport to board, even if it is not a U.S. requirement. You should always check with your cruise ship, travel agent and or destination country to confirm the requirements for entry into the foreign countries you will be visiting."


This has been the case on 2 "closed loop" cruises I have been on, so definitely something to look into before booking a cruise :)

The US Virgin Islands, is so beautiful, I went during September of 2010 and had a great time. It can be a little expensive but it's not that bad, I didn't find it to be any more expensive then going to the Bahamas or Jamaica. You can look for something inclusive, and what's great is that there are 3 islands so lots to select from. I stayed on St. Thomas, and visited St. John as well. I didn't get to go to St. Croix however I heard that it's really nice as well. The water here is a beautiful turquoise color, it is very relaxing and down to earth. And what's great is that there is this trolley service for a $1 that gets you around town, lots of culture and history, they are influenced by Africa, France, Holland, Denmark, England, Holland, Spain and the US.

To answer plumcrush....that's why I posted the article. So it could be read in full. It was too much to post all. Anywhere you go you should do your homework which I stated as well. I know lots of people who have went on cruises without passports thus I gave it as an option to answer the posters question.
