Congratulations.

That's really an open ended question. There are several different types of cruise lines.
Some more luxury, some more "party" style so it depends on what you are looking for in a vacation.

Also, where do you want to go?

Gizmo- Try posting this question in the "General Cruise Chat" section as not everyone looks in this area. You'll get a lot more help there. But, what you are asking does need to be narrowed down a bit if you want good advice. You need to provide a guideline as to what you are willing to spend AND what type of cruise you expect (happy go lucky party time or elegant cruising) from there we can help you choose the appropriate cruise line and cruise. Your other option is to contact a travel agent that specializes in cruises (not a cruise specialist from cruise line because they will only give you options for that line).

A good travel agent can answer your questions. But if you want good advice, there are plenty of regulars on this chat that can help too.

Cruising is a great honeymoon because it is a hassle free vacation. You can visit multiple places without having to pack and unpack and drive to each. All the entertainment and dinning is already arranged.. its just very relaxed. After the stresses of planning a wedding, who wants to have to worry about planning the honeymoon too.

Answer back and we can help.

I've gone ahead and moved this thread to the General Cruise Chat section, as Jim suggested.

gizmo - yes, you will have to narrow it down somewhat. The weather depends on where you want to go on your cruise. Some cruise lines have distinct personalities which may or may not fit in with your expectations. What is good to me may be a lousy choice for you!

What do you like to do for fun or recreation? Do you like to gamble? Is beach or snorkeling type of stuff up your alley? Do you want upscale dining or is good food but plenty of it fine? Do you want glitzy shows and lots of action or a more subdued cruise? How many days can you take - 3, 4, 5, 7, or more? You see, there are lots of things to consider! It isn't as simple as "what is a good choice"!

Gizmo, another question is, are you getting married in a place and at a time that will leave you enough time at the end of the wedding to get to a cruise ship the same day?

Cruises are great for honeymoons. They're very romantic, and can be as active or laid back as you choose. No worries about where to eat your meals, or if there's anything to do during those times you're looking for some entertainment.

Hey Gizmo

There are lots to consider. First where do you live and is there ships in your area that you want to go on? How many days are you looking for? IS it just YOU and her going? LOts of things to consider and if you get ideas and post them you have the best advisors right here to help you with them.
