We're looking at going on our honeymoon in April 2022, leaving Easter weekend through the following week. I've narrowed it down a bit but having trouble deciding.
–Option 1: NCL Greek Isles cruise – My fiancé has never cruised but I think he would like it. I've cruised a good bit but know the experience can be hit or miss. We like to be active and busy but also have some down time. I'm worried about the weather in Greece that time of year and also potential crowds on the cruise ship. I LOVED past cruises to Cuba and Hawaii on NCL and also enjoyed a Bahamas cruise on Carnival (off time of year/ older ship/ not busy) and an NCL Mediterranean cruise. I was less fond of a Carnival Western Caribbean cruise because it was super crowded (still had a good time).
–Option 2: NCL Caribbean cruise – The Caribbean seems like it might have a more laid back vibe and we'd love to get some beach time since winters are frequently cold by us. I love to snorkel and kayak. Also this cruise is cheaper than Greece. Drawbacks: Potentially crowded with a lot of families on spring break. Two at sea days when I dont really like sea days (but might feel differently on the honeymoon.
–Option 3: Find a Caribbean Island and do an all inclusive. I like this idea in theory but I'm feeling a bit planned out with all of the wedding planning and not sure I want to do a bunch of research to find the right one. We would like someplace with good snorkeling, hiking and potentially kayaking. I thought maybe Puerto Rico would be nice because neither of us have been there.
Other background – We just took an amazing road trip through the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. We absolutely loved the trip and it had all of our favorite activities but we also packed a lot in and it was pretty exhausting so we may want a bit more relaxed honeymoon. Also, his family is planning a Galapagos Cruise for next summer, so we will have an amazing action packed vacation with them.
Would love to know everyone's thoughts. We are getting married in Sept and I'd love to get the honeymoon nailed down for April sooner rather than later.
