Cruise vs. All-Inclusive Honeymoon

Some couples treat their honeymoon like a normal vacation, one they spend primarily to experience new destinations and cultures. Other couples though, after spending months and months planning their wedding, just want to relax and be pampered on their honeymoon. Sure, they still like to get a taste of new parts of the world, but they want it to be easy — they want their rooms to be luxe, the service outstanding and the food choices accessible and divine. All those honeymoon goals can be achieved by going on a cruise or staying at an all-inclusive resort. But how do you choose one over the other? Luckily, as with all travel-related questions, we’re here to help you.

Crave Variety

Sushi and a Broadway show? How about the steakhouse followed by the piano bar? On cruise ships, your options are nearly as endless as the views from your balcony stateroom, thanks to an unbelievable variety of restaurants, cabins, entertainment, pools, nightclubs, casinos, activities and spa treatments. In essence, the ship is a destination itself, a place you can thoroughly enjoy during days at sea or after port explorations.

Want to Explore the World

Cruise itineraries tend to cover multiple destinations, exposing you to a wider variety of cultures across countries and continents. An eastern Mediterranean voyage can stop in Italy, Greece, Croatia, Turkey, Israel and Egypt in just 12 days, giving you a range of experiences to collect and appreciate together. Plus, shore excursions run the gamut nowadays, so you can choose a private cooking lesson in one port and a dolphin encounter in another.

Love the Allure of the Islands

In the eyes of many, paradise is found among the islands. From the tropical wonders of Hawaii to the white-sand masterpieces of the Caribbean, the call of the islands is powerful and can best be satiated by an island-hopping ocean cruise. In the Caribbean, each island has its own vibe and cultural appeal, so even though the weather doesn’t change, each day will bring you a new country to explore.

Upgrade to a Spacious Suite

On board a cruise ship, suites can “wow” you with up to 5,750 square feet of space. Not only can these suites include grand pianos, multiple stories and private decks (Jacuzzi included), but they also come with a bevy of exclusive services and amenities, like a private butler and access to exclusive restaurants. You only have one honeymoon, so you might as well make the most of it.

Want to Feel Like a VIP

Who doesn’t want to receive special treatment while on their honeymoon? All-inclusive resorts can offer butler service, in-room refrigerators stocked with all your favorite beverages and snacks, nightly turn-down service, a personal concierge and 24-hour room service. Some all-inclusive resorts, like Sandals, even offer butler service. There’s no better way to blissfully bond over your newly minted marriage than to have all your wishes granted.

As delicious as the feasts are, remember: Save room for dessert.

Love to Eat and Drink

At an all-inclusive resort, everything really is included. From Italian restaurants and Japanese hibachi grills to Brazilian steakhouses, every resort has an array of specialty restaurants. All-inclusive does not mean buffet only! And while the quality of the liquor is always top shelf, so are the ingredients in their smoothies and premium coffee drinks. Toasting your love will be easy and frequent.

Want Everything to be Included

While you can spend an entire cruise without spending an extra dime, you often do spend that dime (and many more) on drinks, shore excursions and more. All-inclusive resorts, on the other hand, provide pretty much everything — lavish accommodations, 24-hour room service, world-class dining, wireless Internet, even bottles of top-shelf spirits in your room — all included in the price of your stay. The only things you may pay extra for are spa treatments or extra-special dining experiences.

Wish to Explore One Destination

With cruising, you typically get one afternoon to explore a port. When you stay at an all-inclusive resort, you have more time to venture outside the resort grounds to visit ancient ruins, shop at local markets, sample the festive nightlife and truly immerse yourself in the destination.
