I was excited for our honeymoon before, I think I’ve even more excited now,

We will be sailing on Royal Caribbean’s Allure of the Seas in the Western Caribbean!

My consultant at Alfred Angelo recently asked me if we had any honeymoon plans and I gushed all about them to her. I was quite surprised when she told me that she’d had a bride who didn’t know, nor care, much about the honeymoon because it was just another thing to plan and she was sick of planning. Wow!

So I feel like I should say this, because there are brides out there so stressed out that they can’t be excited for a honeymoon, a honeymoon is a celebration of your new marriage, a vacation together just the two of you and an awesome chance to relax after all that planning.

What are you most excited about for your honeymoon?

    I am most excited to spend a whole week with my new husband and just revel in the feeling that we did it: we’re finally married! I will admit that we are honeymooning at a vacation spot we have visited many, many times. The idea of researching and planning an awesome trip to a new locale was too much for me to take on with all the wedding planning. I want the honeymoon to be so memorable and stress-free, so I guess I took the easy way out. Regardless, I still can’t wait!!

    Hi there! We’re planning on honeymooning on Allure and was curious who you booked through and how you got upgraded. I hear about stories of people feeling like just another person on the cruise and not even getting a balloons or rose petals or a sign- I’ve cruised 14 times but Allure is an entirely new ballgame…. so if you have any tips i’d totally appreciate it! Thanks!

    Hi Lori,
    The Allure of the Seas is a great choice for a honeymoon! Unfortunately, I can’t help you get upgraded. Our room was upgraded as a wedding present from a family member. But! I can help you stuff to make it more special. We usually book straight through Royal Caribbean, Tim Slasinski is the vacation planner that helped with upgrading our room. His email is: tslasinski@rccl.com. Make sure when you look at your reservation online that it says you’re celebrating your honeymoon.

    Allure does some special things for honeymooners like rose petals on the bed one night. We asked our family members if they got us a romance package and no one did. But the romance packages are also a great way to make your honeymoon special, if you or a family member want to get one of those for your honeymoon.
