Planning your dream honeymoon? The world is your oyster - Bali, Barbados, a Greek island or maybe a honeymoon cruise vacation? Cruises are increasingly popular for anniversaries, weddings and they make a dream honeymoon cruise vacation. Here are a few reasons why a honeymoon cruise vacation beats a traditional hotel honeymoon every time.

Easy to Book

Booking a honeymoon cruise vacation is a very easy process. Simply browse the many destination options for your dates and press BOOK! It really is that easy. Optional pre- and post-cruise packages will include airfares, hotels and transfers. No holding hotel bookings whilst looking for suitable flights, no car hire to arrange and no transfers to worry about. A honeymoon cruise vacation package takes care of everything - cabin, transport and meals all-in-one. If only planning the wedding were so straightforward!

Great Winter Destinations

Choices of where to enjoy a honeymoon in the winter can be limited, but cruise ships relocate to offer a honeymoon cruise vacation in the sunshine at any time of year. In the winter, they are mainly based around the Caribbean, Hawaii and the Southern hemisphere. In the summer they cross the Atlantic and cruise the Mediterranean, Scandinavia and Alaska. A honeymoon cruise vacation should be about relaxing in the sun, so book with confidence.

Extras

Let the cruise company know that it is your honeymoon cruise vacation. Most ships offer a few goodwill extras for those on a honeymoon cruise vacation. Tables for two, complimentary champagne and chocolates and even a honeymooners' cocktail party may be on offer. Some cruise lines have honeymoon cruise vacation packages for a small supplement which include engraved glasses, flowers, a wedding cake and plenty of other nice surprises.

Privacy

You may think that joining 2000 other cruisers will not allow much privacy for your honeymoon cruise vacation but the opposite is actually true. Enjoy room service in your cabin at any time of day or night - without a nasty surcharge. Fruit platters, cheese platters, drinks, light snacks and breakfast in bed are all just a phone call away. Ignore the organized shore excursions, take a taxi into town and explore each port of call hand-in-hand. Alternatively, ask the taxi driver to take you to the nearest quiet beach - and arrange for him to pick you up later! Most cruises have alternative dining for a supplement and these exclusive restaurants offer candlelit dinners, attentive waiter service and a romantic environment to make your honeymoon cruise vacation really special.

Entertainment

Life onboard a cruise ship is never dull. Sit in a cozy nook and be serenaded by a professional pianist, dance cheek-to-cheek, enjoy an off-Broadway show, head for the casino and try your luck, or step out in the warm night air and cuddle beneath the stars. Best of all, at the end of the evening your cabin is just a stroll away. No calling a taxi or driving a hire car in a strange place. With a honeymoon cruise vacation, everything is taken care of perfectly.
