  • Why you should choose a cruise for your honeymoon

    The bells have finished ringing, the confetti has settled, and the crowds have departed. How should you start married life? Running away with your other half to a dreamy location sounds pretty ideal. What if you could combine several destinations, not have to worry about travelling between them, and have all your food and drink included? With Marella Cruises, you can do all of that and more. So, if that sounds like the stress-free escape you need after months of frantic wedding planning, here are a few reasons you should head off on a cruise for your honeymoon. Plus, find out how we can help you celebrate your vows at sea. Browse our deals to get booking…

    You can visit several places in one trip

    A honeymoon cruise is a great way to see the world – depending on your itinerary, you can see multiple ports or even countries in one trip. Plus, nothing says romance like watching the sunset in each other’s arms from your cabin balcony. If you’ve always dreamed of holding hands under the Northern Lights, you can visit the fjords of Norway and Iceland’s Blue Lagoon all in one trip. Or, if you’d rather sip cocktails on sunloungers, why not try our Highlights of the Mediterranean itinerary? You can even combine your cruise with a week’s stay in the destination at the start or the end of your itinerary for the ultimate once-in-a-lifetime trip. And, best of all, you’ll won’t have to pack and repack your case every time you head to a new port, or waste time on planes. How else could you see so many places in such a stress-free way?

    You don’t have to worry about paying for food and drink onboard

    All our ships are All Inclusive as standard. That means your food and drink are included in the price of your honeymoon cruise, and most of the onboard activities are also part of the deal. Tips and service charges are included on all of our ships, too, and you can always upgrade to our All Inclusive drinks package if you fancy.

    You can enjoy ultimate relaxation after the wedding stress

    Get out and see all the ports of call on your itinerary. Or, stay on the ship and hit the spa for a couples’ massage – Marella Explorer and Marella Explorer 2 each have a Champneys spa onboard. On a cruise, the choice is yours. And, if you want to explore a destination without having to worry about organising it yourself, book a shore excursion – they’re perfect for honeymooners who want someone else to take care of everything.

    It’s the ultimate romantic escape

    Whether you’re watching sunsets on your private balcony with a glass of bubbly or exploring a new city together, cruises are awash with romantic opportunities. It’s a chance to make memories that belong only to you and your partner. You can switch off from the rest of the world and just spend some quality time together. How often do you get the chance to do that?

    You can celebrate your vows onboard

    Make your cruise really special by celebrating your vows onboard with us. There are three packages to choose from, which include dinner at the Captain’s table and VIP seats at one of our onboard shows. Opt for the Silver package and you’ll get the above, plus a sparkling wine toast, a cake, a bouquet of flowers, a buttonhole, a professional photograph of you both, and a bottle of Champagne. You’ll also get a special announcement in the Cruise newsletter, and a discount voucher to spend on jewellery and watches at one of our onboard shops. Go for Gold to get extras like flowers in your cabin, a handwritten card from the captain, chocolate-dipped strawberries and three pressed items of clothing per person, plus a meal on us in one of our à la carte restaurants.

    And, if you choose to celebrate your vows with the Platinum package? You’ll get all of that, plus a spa treatment each, 10 photos, and an invite to a VIP event. And, you’ll also get to enjoy afternoon tea in your cabin, breakfast in bed with Champagne, and dinner at a hosted table with a Senior Officer.
