Tips for Taking a Wedding Honeymoon Cruise
by Shannon Kietzman, writer for Your Wedding Place.com
If you are considering taking a honeymoon cruise, there are a number of basic factors to consider that go into planning any cruise. Taking time to thoughtfully consider each of them will result in a honeymoon cruise that will not only meet your expectations, but most likely exceed them.
Cruise Destination Climate Considerations
The climate is an important consideration that many couples overlook when planning a honeymoon cruise. Most cruises focus on Caribbean trips. For the most part, the Caribbean remains of moderate temperature because of the surrounding Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea. There are, however, exceptions. During hurricane season, for example, cruise itineraries can be delayed, changed, or even cancelled completely. This season, which takes place from June 1 through November 30, can change your honeymoon cruise plans even if the storm is not directly in the path of your cruise. Therefore, you might want to plan your special day outside of this timeframe in order to ensure your honeymoon cruise plans are not disturbed.
Cruise Line Costs
Another factor to consider when planning a honeymoon cruise is the cost. While you certainly want to have a honeymoon to remember, you donít want to start your life together with your sweetheart in a large debt. Therefore, you might want to consider booking your honeymoon cruise during the off-season months. Cruises are available year round, but September and October are considered off-season and can provide you with great discount cruise opportunities. Cruises are light at this time because the kids are back in school and there are no major holidays, so take advantage of the reduction in cost and the less crowded ship for your romantic honeymoon cruise.
