Top 8 Reasons Why Cruises Make Great Honeymoons

If you’re like us, you love to travel and can imagine yourself going just about anywhere for your honeymoon. What made us choose a Carnival cruise, then, for this milestone vacation? Here are 8 reasons why we think cruises make great honeymoons!

1. 24/7 Room service.

In case you want to hole up in your room for days on end and never leave, you totally can. The room service food and delivery is available 24/7!

2. See the world from your room.


These pictures (above) were taken from the balcony…. in our room! You can literally watch the scenery change as the ship moves, while you stay stationary in the comfort of your own room. Or if you opt for a room without a balcony or window, then you can think of your room as a moving hotel. You get to see different cities and islands, all while staying in the same place!

3. No cell phones.


Carnival offers wifi on board, however, a ship out at sea is a mostly “unplugged” kind of vacation. For busy entrepreneurs like us, a cruise is an amazing way to unplug, unwind and give each other our 100% undivided attention.

4. Dinner dates made easy.


There’s no need to do the following on your honeymoon: decide when or where you’re going to eat dinner, make a reservation, budget extra money for food, or even pull out your wallet to pay for dinner. It’s all included in your cruise. It’s super easy to have a delicious sit-down meal, every night of your honeymoon!

5. Two words: couples massage.

On the first day of our cruise, we headed to the Spa for an hour-long couple’s massage. It was relaxing, rejuvenating and such a fun experience to be able to do together. The perfect honeymoon kick-off! (Note: there is an additional cost for Spa services.)

6. Professional photos.

Have you ever gone on a trip, only to return without a single photo of the two of you together? We have, which is why the professional photographers onboard Carnival cruises are pretty great. They snap pictures of you throughout the day like as you depart the ship and during dinner, but they also set up mini “studios” with fun backdrops. Having your photo taken is totally free – then you can decide if you’d like to purchase any printed images and what size. It’s the perfect way to solve the “we really were there together but don’t have photographic proof” dilemma.

7. Tons of date night ideas.


Sometimes you’re so relaxed on your vacation that you don’t want to plan activities or find things to do, so you wind up sitting in your hotel room all night (it’s happened to us). With a cruise comes an action-packed itinerary when you want to get out and do something. Comedy shows, magic shows, live theater, and daily movies on the big screen – there’s always something to do together and it’s all included.

8. Carnival celebrates with you.


Carnival loves honeymooners. (You can even get married in the chapel on board!) We met lots of other couples on their honeymoon, and Carnival sings “happy honeymoon to you” at dinner. We felt the celebratory spirit everywhere we went – these are the “Fun ships” after all!


We loved our Carnival honeymoon! Where would you/did you go on yours?
