Just about to get married? What could be more romantic than a walk in the moonlight on the deck of a luxury cruise liner, caressed by the gentle wind of a warm Caribbean night? That’s right.

And let’s face it, taking a cruise in the Caribbean or wine-dark Mediterranean has to be just one of the most romantic and memorable honeymoons imaginable.
While ocean cruises used to be just for the wealthy, times have changed. The state of today’s economy has forced the cruise lines to lower their prices to the point where a 5- or 7-day cruise can cost less than, say, a week on Maui. Plus, you’ll have the opportunity to sample a bevy of side trips, ranging from watching a glacier calve to scuba diving along a breathtakingly beautiful coral reef. When you choose a cruise, you can also choose to visit exotic new places – the West Indies, Jamaica, Cancun, the French Riviera or the rivers of France and Germany.
And while you’re enjoying these new vistas, you’ll be spoiled like never before with food the like of which you may have never eaten. In fact, once you step foot on a cruise ship, you could eat your way through the entire day clear up to Midnight – if you choose - enjoying one sumptuous meal after another as served by waiters and waitresses whose only goal is to make you feel like royalty.
An ocean cruise can literally be the experience of a lifetime – no matter what kind of budget you have or the cruise you choose. So hang on while we set sail to teach you what you need to know about the joy of cruising.
