Best Honeymoon Crusies From The US

A honeymoon is for building romantic memories that last a lifetime and choosing the perfect cruise destination ensures the ideal start to a new life together.  A mid sea voyage in a luxurious cabin with every basic comfort you need, visits to beautiful islands with white sands, clear blue waters, history and culture – this is a practical option to being marooned on a deserted island with the one you love. With so many island destinations and cruises, choosing the best one can get confusing. Here is a guide to popular cruise destinations from the United States.

Hawaii

Romantic Sunsets

While Hawaii is well known for its picturesque scenery, lush green foliage, white sand beaches, waterfalls and magical sunsets, each island is unique and the best way to experience the romance of the islands is on a honeymoon cruise. Most cruises include a one or two day stay at Honolulu prior to the start of the cruise so you can visit the famous Waikiki Beach and take in some of the history and culture of Hawaii. Once onboard, you will visit a new place every day and enjoy beaches and luaus on Big Island, Maui, Kauai, Molokai and Lanai.

Mexico
With a perfect blend of history, culture and natural beauty, a cruise on the Mexican Riviera provides a romantic setting to spend your first days together as a married couple. Festive is the word that best describes the vibrant atmosphere onshore. You can spend the day browsing through the lively open air markets for crafts or silver jewelry and strolling through the quaint towns appreciating the charming Spanish architecture. At night, cultural performances featuring colorful costumes, traditional dances and live music will keep you entertained. Popular stops on Mexico cruises are Mazatlan, Puerto Vallarta, Cabo San Lucas and Acapulco.

Bahamas

Beautiful Bahamas

A cruise to the Bahamas offers an exotic tropical beach vacation clubbed with casino gaming. Nassau, the capital of the Bahamas, and Freeport are the most common ports of call. Both have excellent resort facilities. Some cruises stop at Cape Canaveral offering honeymooners the chance to experience the theme parks in Orlando or at Miami for a taste of the lively southern beaches. Another popular activity on a cruise to the Bahamas is a trip to a private island with facilities such as restrooms, showers, beach chairs, sun umbrellas, barbeques and massage tents so you can enjoy a romantic day on a secluded beach.

Caribbean

Allure of the Seas Junior Suite

Cruises to the Caribbean are a good way to unwind after the hectic wedding planning and preparations. With several spectacular powdery sand beaches and exotic locales, cruises usually cover the Eastern, Western or Southern Islands depending on the duration of your stay onboard. Jamaica is a popular stop with some of the best scuba and snorkeling spots in the world – a perfect chance to create unforgettable memories. Other popular stops are Antigua, Barbados, Puerto Rico and St. Lucia.

Alaska

Stunning Alaska Scenery

Cruises to Alaska offer scenes of breathtaking natural beauty – glaciers, fjords and marine life that accompany the cruise ship all along the way. Onshore excursions include visits to chateaus on snowcapped mountains and national parks. For couples who love nature, this would be a dream honeymoon. Hubbard Glacier, College Fjord and Mendenhall Glacier feature on most cruises. Onshore visits usually cover Juneau, Ketchikan, Sitka and Skagway.

Before you choose your honeymoon cruise, take into consideration factors such as your interests, the number of romantic ports of call, the duration of your trip and the facilities onboard. Book ahead to get cheaper rates!
