How To Plan a Romantic Honeymoon Cruise

Your wedding day is one of the most memorable moments of your life, and while a lot of the preparation will inevitably be focused on the day itself, the honeymoon is also one of the most exciting parts of getting married. 

Providing you and your new husband or wife with a chance to spend some quality time together relaxing and indulging while easing your way into married life, many couples opt for a honeymoon cruise.

Honeymoon cruises provide a range of blissful benefits, but planning can be tricky – especially if you’ve just spent a significant amount of time planning your wedding.

At A Way To Go Travel, we can take care of all the planning on your behalf, organizing tailored honeymoon vacations – including cruises – that are customized to your specific requirements. 

In this article, we’ll outline our top five tips for planning a romantic honeymoon cruise.   

Choose your destination

Why choose just one location when a cruise can provide you with the chance to see multiple honeymoon destinations in one trip? 

Honeymoon cruises offer you the chance to do exactly that, taking you to several destinations and countries over the course of a week, two weeks, or even longer. 

Despite this, you should still take some time to think about what kind of honeymoon you’d like.

Whether this is a Caribbean cruise that will allow you to relax on stunning golden sands and take a dip in beautiful turquoise waters or a European cruise that will take you to some of the continent’s capitals and cultural hotspots, no matter what your dream honeymoon looks like we can make it a reality.

Browse packages 

The list of cruise packages out there is almost endless, with a whole host of cruise lines offering different benefits and amenities. 

With this in mind, it’s sensible to take some time browsing all of the options available. While doing this, consider whether you want a specialist honeymoon cruise that will focus on romance, an adult-only cruise (or one that has adult-only areas), or one that focuses on a specific destination or region.

Packages are also often available at different prices, so if you’ve just spent a lot of money on your wedding and are looking for more cost-effective solutions, you will certainly be able to find options for your desired budget. 

At A Way To Go Travel, we have access to some of the world’s leading cruise liners and will always find the best option for you.

Select a stateroom

As well as browsing packages, you should also think carefully about the kind of stateroom you want for your honeymoon. 

There is a wide range of options to choose from, and most cruise lines will offer options with sea views, balconies with verandas, and spa access. Plus, if you want to make your honeymoon extra special with an upgrade, personal concierges, priority disembarkation, and access to private lounges, it can all be tailored to you.

Book excursions 

Even if you want to do little more than sunbathe and top up your tan on your honeymoon, the chances are there will be times when you want to explore the destination you’ve arrived in.

With this in mind, booking excursions with the cruise liner is always recommended. Not only will these excursions provide you with greater insight into the destination, but they also include travel directly to and from the cruise ship and ensure you never miss your embarking deadline. 

Plus, you can upgrade to private excursions if you want a personal and extra special honeymoon experience as a couple.

Consider restaurants  

Every cruise liner will come packed with restaurants for a selection of cuisines, so once you’ve decided on the cruise for you it’s worthwhile browsing their collection to find out what delights await you. 

From fine dining to more casual options, the best cruises have a wide selection. 

If there are any that particularly capture your attention, it may be worth booking ahead of time to ensure you don’t miss out.
