Honeymoon cruise: the pros and the cons

Many couples hope to explore the world together, but after paying for a wedding, travelling to numerous destinations at a time may feel like a costly extravagance. That's really the best part of a cruise! In one trip, you get to explore numerous destinations in a hassle-free way, courtesy of your mobile hotel! Here are the pros and cons of a honeymoon cruise.

Pros

  • Everything is taken care of for you: If you want a fuss-free trip with your partner, taking a honeymoon cruise is the easiest option. With on-site activities, pools, bars, fine dining, and entertainment all within a stone's throw of your cabin, and included in your package, you'll be relaxing in no time. 
  • Unpack once: Hopping from one destination to another sounds great, but in theory, getting from location to location can be a hassle. Onboard a cruise, you only have to unpack once, sail from one place to the next in your floating hotel. 
  • Easy access to sunsets and sunrises: There's nothing more romantic than sunset, or staying awake together until sunrise, especially when the perfect spot to catch the sun going up or down is right outside your room. 
  • Amenities: Pools, saunas, steam rooms, spas, gyms, nuts in your room, cocktails, an abundance of food - life on deck is sweet! You'll have access to some of the best amenities in the world. 
  • Pamper yourselves: Want a cabin upgrade? Or a dedicated butler? Talk to your tour operator to see what other luxuries can be add to your honeymoon package. 

Cons

  • Seasickness: This will really only be an issue if you have a very sensitive stomach or are sailing on choppy waters. Seasickness won't really spoil your trip, as there are plenty of remedies available to manage this. 
  • You'll get a taste but not the full picture: Port visits usually only last a couple of hours, so there won't be that much time to discover the destination, so it's important to think ahead about what you want to do while visiting land. However, some tour operators now offer later or overnight port stays, so if spending more time in destinations is something that appeals to you, just look for a package with this in mind. 
  • You'll need to pay for some stuff: While a lot is included in the price of your package, if you're looking to do those special off-site excursions (after all it is your honeymoon), you'll have to pay a little extra to do so. 
  • Gratuities: These are not included in the price of your package, so you'll also need to factor this into your budget!
