“The Caribbean is a real treasure trove when it comes to cruising”
Heather M describes why it was a great option for herself and her husband: “We cruised the Carnival Freedom to Key West, Grand Cayman and Jamaica. I don't swim and my husband doesn't like this beach so a cruise was perfect for us. On sea days, I sat by the pool while he played at the casino and we enjoyed dinner and shows in the evening. We walked around and explored Key West, hung out on the beach in Grand Cayman and toured Dunn's River Falls in Jamaica.”
Ports of call range from: St. Kitts, Belize, Barbados, Colombia, St. Lucia, St. Thomas, Bahamas, Panama, Mexico (Costa Maya, Cozumel), Florida (Fort Lauderdale, Tampa, Key West, Miami), Jamaica, Louisiana (New Orleans), Aruba, St. Maarten, Costa Rica, Honduras, Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands, Grenada, Antigua, British Virgin Islands, Curacao, Haiti, Bonaire, Bermuda, Grand Cayman and more!
Christine M also took a cruise for her honeymoon, saying “My husband and I took a Caribbean Cruise for our honeymoon - we think its great way to travel and we woke up somewhere new every single day (no days at sea) = we saw 6 islands (plus Puerto Rico, where the boat left from). It would cost a fortune to island hop via airplane and stay at nice hotels on each island, so we also found it to be a cost-efficient way to visit numerous places on one vacation.”

“The People of Hawaii would like to share their islands with you.”
Holly A. visited Hawaii for her honeymoon last October and says “We chose to go to 2 different islands---Kauai and Maui. We wanted to go to a tropical paradise where we could relax but go on some pretty interesting adventures as well. Plus, it was one haul of a trip to get out there--we spent 2 weeks there because we knew it might be a few years before we go to go back out there again.”
Activities and sights to check out include: Hawaii’s Big Island (Kailua Village, coffee plantations, downtown Hilo, Hamakua Coast, rainforests, botanical gardens, sandy beaches, snowcapped mountains, Hawaii Volcanoes National Park), Maui (beautiful beaches, whale watching, scenery in Hana, Haleakala sunrises, Iao Valley State Park, shopping and dining in Lahaina), Lanai (no traffic lights, romance and privacy away from the crowds, opulent resorts, rock formations at Keahiakawelo, 4-wheeling along Munro Trail), Molokai, Oahu, Kauai and more!
