I will have many Birthdays...
There are some life events that happen only once in your life.
Honeymoons ain't among 'em. Trust me on this one.
Put yourself in my place, you waited so long through tragedy to get there to have that said to you?
The deal with that event is:
1] the longest-married couple
2] the shortest-married couple
3] they average the two and find one as close to the middle as they can.
Being married for three weeks you're more likely to get selected for #3 than for #2. There are many many many couples who specifically get married on board - after sailing - for the express purpose of being pulled up on stage, and on one cruise I took they were going down to what hour they'd gotten married. The losing bride was probably "disappointed" as well. She left and what looked like her entourage left with her.
You planned your wedding to be perfect no other day in your life has such high expectations
I'd prepare for more honeymoons if I were you. Not that I'm wishing you ill, or anything, but ... marriage isn't about the wedding, and it's certainly not about the honeymoon. You seem to have prioritized the exactly wrong things.
Yeah, I know ... you don't want to hear it.
Neither did I.
There are obviously a lot of Carnival Lover Cultists who just like to deny that anything could be improved
If that's what you're getting out of any of this, then you should probably learn to pay better attention.
You are not being told everything was perfect; you are being told that just because you complain doesn't mean the complaint is valid.
For what it's worth, the deal with ordering the champagne and st'berries and having to actually go remind them ... that was lousy. And the reason I [and I suspect others] didn't ring you up on that is because that was indeed a valid criticism. Most of the rest, to one degree or another, are not. And especially the thing Dave zeroed in on: you have to make your own romance. Married life is not a wedding where you are the star; and it's also not a honeymoon where you are entitled to self-indulgence at your whim. If you want romance, you have to make it. Get used to that sooner rather than later and avoid the multiple honeymoons.
SIG: If you're going to create the drama, at least supply the popcorn.
