Congratulations on your upcoming wedding! Now you face the next big decision: Where will you go on your honeymoon? But why stick with only one destination when you can experience several ports of call on a cruise?
Whether you're looking for a honeymoon cruise deal or you want to sail off to an exotic location with no holds barred in The Haven (home to Norwegian Cruise Line's most luxurious accommodations), your romantic cruise dreams can come true.
The best 2018 honeymoon cruises are ready to welcome you on board. Think of the pampering, excitement, and adventure awaiting you as newlyweds.
If you love art, history, and romance, coupled with good food and wine, a Europe cruise provides a wealth of destinations to explore. Imagine cruising down the Grand Canal in Venice, Italy; seeing the colorful spires of the Cathedral of the Savior on Spilled Blood in St. Petersburg, Russia; or sipping an iced coffee at a whitewashed cafe in Mykonos, Greece — amazing.
You can visit Spain, the Baltics — Denmark, Finland, Germany, Norway, Sweden — or the more mysterious Montenegro and Croatia. Did you know you can cruise to Paris? Honeymooning in the City of Lights definitely takes romance to the next level — oo-la-la.
The Caribbean & Cuba
If lightly swaying palm trees, azure waters, and your toes in powdery white sand with an umbrella drink in hand is more your thing, you're sure to love a Caribbean cruise or Cuba cruise for your honeymoon.
With such a diverse array of Caribbean countries to visit, you can get your adventure on, go sightseeing, and soak up the local cultures and sun while never being stuck in only one destination. Plus, the allure of Cuba offers a bonus cruise deal with free unlimited drinks onboard Norwegian Sky or Norwegian Sun.
If you're looking for exotic honeymoon destinations, Norwegian Cruise Line sails to enticing ports including the lands down under, Australia and New Zealand, as well as to Cambodia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, and Vietnam.
Visiting South America is on the travel bucket list for many people. With 15 itineraries to choose from, you can experience destinations such as Colombia, Chile, Ecuador, and Peru on an incredible 15-day South American cruise from Miami, which includes transiting the famous Panama Canal — just saying. You can also take an excursion to breathtaking Machu Picchu.
U.S. Honeymoon Cruises
Norwegian Cruise Line has two great honeymoon options closer to home. Imagine cruising the spectacular Inside Passage to Alaska. Think majestic wildlife, towering glaciers, pristine streams flanked by green meadows, and snow-capped mountain peaks, along with seemingly endless photo ops.
Sail on the brand new Norwegian Bliss to enjoy the two-story Observation Lounge, and then add a Cruisetour to complete your Alaskan honeymoon. The second option is tropical Hawaii. But not just Hawaii: We're talking four islands and two overnight stays where you can explore all of the highlights on the Big Island, Kauai, Maui, and Oahu.
Canada et Nouvelle-Angleterre
Another honeymoon cruise option close to home is experiencing the beauty of the magnificent fall foliage of the northeast on a Canada and New England cruise. Visualize deep crimsons, vivid yellows, scarlet reds, and golden ambers framing the countryside — as they say in French, l'automne est si beau. You can visit picturesque Peggy's Cove in Halifax, enjoy a lobster bake in Acadia National Park, or go on a Grand Mansion tour in Newport, Rhode Island.
You can conveniently cruise from Boston, New York, or Quebec City to destinations including Bar Harbor, the Bay of Fundy, Charlottetown, Sydney, and Saguenay. Your new beginning could coincide with the new autumn season.
The Mexican Riviera
As one of the most popular honeymoon choices, Mexico tops the list for many newlyweds. But why experience only one destination in Mexico when you can have several? You can cruise on a seven- or eight-day Mexican Riviera cruise from Los Angeles to exciting ports of call including Cabo San Lucas, Ensenada, Mazatlán, and Puerto Vallarta.
You can soak up the rays on a gorgeous beach, enjoy a traditional party atmosphere, or embark on adventures such as scuba diving, sailing on a pirate ship, and going extreme ziplining - or even swimming with some amazing dolphins. You know you want to.
Best Short Honeymoon Cruises
If you're limited on vacation time, Norwegian Cruise Line has got your honeymoon covered. You can grab a three- or four-day Bahamas cruise on a Friday afternoon out of Orlando or Miami, Florida, plus you'll find a free open bar on board the Norwegian Sky.
A five-day Pacific Coastal cruise out of Los Angeles will whisk you along to San Francisco, Vancouver, and Victoria. Or you can consider a four-day Western Caribbean cruise out of Miami or Tampa. Of course, you can add on a pre- or post-cruise stay to any of these short cruises.
Cruising is one of the best vacation values for your hard-earned money as the transportation, hotel, food, and entertainment are included. You'll be able to savor delectable cuisine at an array of Norwegian Cruise Line's award-winning restaurants and enjoy world-class nightly entertainment. Try your luck at a casino, go shopping on board, or join in on the fun activities throughout the ship. With so much to do, you'll only be bored if you want to.
