Want to lie back and enjoy a drink on deck? If you know that you’ll both be perfectly content sipping champagne on board and admiring the views for the duration of your cruise, there’s probably no need to spend extra on a cruise that makes multiple stops at ports you won’t see.
Your honeymoon is not ‘just’ another holiday. It’s an experience that you will remember for the rest of your life – treat yourself! Make the most of the spa and fitness facilities.

You’ll be spoilt for choice.
You did it. You booked the venue, sent out hundreds of invitations, dealt with venue mishaps and organised every element of your big day with pin-point precision.
