Honeymoon travel should be something special, do you agree? Certainly, you have many ideas for this after-wedding period of time to be together. Consider the most popular and famous cruises offered by your honeymoon adventure.
Bermuda cruising. This self-governing British dependency melds island living with proper English traditions. Sparkling blue water washes up against pink-sand beaches, and hibiscus and bougainvillea bloom in front of pretty pastel cottages. Yet you'll also find that afternoon tea is a daily ritual, judges still wear powdered wigs and cricket is a much-loved sport. Unlike the Caribbean islands, Bermuda tightly controls the number of ships that are allowed to call in order to keep the crowds to a minimum. Because of limits on the number of passengers that may disembark in Bermuda, it is not unusual for cruise lines to limit occupancy to just two people per stateroom, which sometimes makes it difficult for families to book a Bermuda cruise. The Bermuda cruising season lasts from late-April to October. Cruises are seven days, and ships typically spend three nights in Bermuda. Some ships will stay in one port, while others may visit up to three Bermuda ports. Most Bermuda cruises depart from Boston and New York City. Bermuda is an extremely popular golf destination, boasting some of the most beautiful greens in the world. Because ships stay in port for several days, it is easy for passengers to schedule tee times.
Hawaiian cruise. There are three basic types of Hawaiian cruise itineraries. First, some Hawaiian cruises start or end in Hawaii and connect to California, Ensenada or Vancouver. Other itineraries combine Hawaii cruises with French Polynesia. The third and most popular type of Hawaii cruise sails entirely within the Hawaiian Islands, or begins and ends in Hawaii and includes one foreign port, such as Fanning Island, in the itinerary. Hawaii cruises that include French Polynesia are one way, longer than a week, and often include Papeete, Bora Bora, and Moorea. It is possible to cruise Hawaii year-round. Hawaii cruises typically last seven to 15 days.
Tahiti cruises. Tahiti cruises offer some of the most breathtaking scenery in the world with azure waters, majestic peaks and lush valleys. Cruise Tahiti and your Tahiti vacation may include exploring a lagoon on a glass-bottom boat, hiking into the mountains for stunning views of the sea, or shopping for Tahitian black pearls. Water activities abound on Tahiti vacations, and scuba diving, snorkeling, jet skiing, parasailing and windsurfing are popular. You can cruise Tahiti year-round. Most Tahiti cruises last from seven to 14 days. Most Tahiti cruises depart from Papeete, but a few Tahiti cruises depart from, or sail to, Hawaii.Canada cruises. Canada cruises depart from or visit a variety of ports on both the east and west coasts of Canada. West coast Canada cruises typically spend more time in Alaska, but may depart from or terminate in the scenic and cosmopolitan city of Vancouver. Some visit picturesque and historic Victoria. East coast cruises to Canada usually begin in Montreal, New York or Boston, and call on popular Canadian ports including Halifax and Quebec City. On Canadian cruises, passengers see rugged coastlines guarded by lighthouses, quaint villages and fishing boats bobbing in picturesque harbors. Popular shore excursions on an east coast Canada cruise include touring Montreal's old town in a horse-drawn carriage or visiting the Maritime Museum in Halifax. Most cruises to Canada also visit New England. The Canada/New England cruise season lasts from mid-May through October, and fall is the most popular time to visit.
