To be perfectly honest

We are still trying to figure out our honeymoon plans. Husband2Be happens to enjoy the mountains more than exotic beaches. I prefer the latter. But both of us have agreed on one thing - we want to have a honeymoon where there is a bevy of activities for us to enjoy.

Originally we were talking about doing a Walt Disney World Honeymoon package. It's something that we kind of thought about and realized that despite first impressions that it wouldn't be so great, it could work very well for us since we don't want to take more than a week off of work (we both work at the same school and it's not that smart to be away from our students/teaching for so long). I looked into Disney honeymoon packages and they seem pretty reasonable. We sort of decided to do that.

But then, after some time passed, we talked about our honeymoon plans a little more and started thinking that maybe a cruise on Norwegian might be a better plan. NCL has a great reputation and everyone I know has gone on a cruise at least once and has raved about how wonderful they are. I researched on NCL the other night and found a cruise departing from NYC the very next day after our wedding too! AND the cost would actually be less than a Disney honeymoon. Hmmmm...

The other thing is that I just worked a wedding today with our wedding photographers and we were discussing the whole idea of honeymoon destinations. The couple whose wedding we were at were planning on going to the Outer Banks and taking their dog. I mentioned to our photographers that it seemed kind of crazy to go there at this time of year and you know what they said in reply? That they had actually lost count of couples who have regretted splurging on over the top honeymoons because they just about don't leave their rooms because of.... well... the obvious. *wink*

I've been thinking about it and it makes sense to me. However, I think that a cruise could easily fit the bill for us even with regard to the fact that we might not be leaving our room too much. :)

I think the cruise sounds awesome, the timing is perfect and if it's cheaper go for it! I'm sure you'll go to Disney at some other point and the cruise just seems more romantic. :)

That's interesting. We left our room quite a bit and had a fantastic time exploring the Island and the beaches. There's plenty of time for "that stuff"

That's what I was thinking as well and that's why we were originally thinking Disney World. We are very activity-oriented and we want to have fun and active things available to us to enjoy! It didn't even occur to me before talking to some folks that we might be so preoccupied by "other things."
