It really is no different than the "what is your favorite cruise line" question. What I like may not be what you like.

The number of cruise lines and ships in the Caribbean in May shrinks, as many ships move to Alaska or Europe for the summer.

Right now I'd take the Oasis or Carnival Dream because they are new and have lots of stuff to do.

Hi Dalton, there are a lot of "ifs" to my answer. If money were no object, I'd go with Seaborn or Crystal. Since it is, I'd go with Princess or HAL because they both offer magnificent ships, impeccable service, immaculate on board conditions, and great food with not a lot of "glitz" to the ship. They don't have the rock wall, the florider, or the promenade, but do offer an array of ammenities to my personal liking. If I wanted non-stop activities, I'd go with Royal or Carnival. They offer a great product with loads of activities.

If money were no object, I'd do an Hawaii to Tahiti or Tahiti to Australia itinerary because I love snorkeling. Since money is an object, I'd do a Caribbean itinerary because I love snorkeling and being warm. I'd also like to do a Med cruise, but doubt that I could snorkel in those waters without a full dry suit.

With everything I have just said, my advice is still to go to a good travel agent that specializes in cruises. If you can find one that is CLIA certified, you would probably find a good agent. A good cruise specialist will ask you the right questions to find the best "fit" for you. Best wishes with your up-coming wedding, and hopefully cruise!

Your on your honeymoon.. who the heck cares what ship your on??? Are you even going to be out of the cabin?

Dave and Penny... you are way too old for this question ... trying to give real answers...

We honeymooned on Carnival as we did not have much cash then but it did hook us on cruising...

I would say you need to start off with where you want to go. I think any will be fine. Like Jim said, you'll be on your honeymoon!

Well, Jim might not be all that up to date By the time the honeymoon comes, it's not that big of a deal anymore The southern Caribbean is one of my favorite itineraries! There are fantastic ports, great snorkeling, beautiful beaches, great weather (usually), and really nice locals. RCCL or Carnival don't do Hawaii, but Princess and NCL do. Princess leaves from the US, NCL just does the Hawaiian islands. However, the southern Caribbean, is every bit as nice as Hawaii, at least in my opinion. Even though, I'm old as dirt
