Wedding Cruise

Recommended Posts



I think I've narrowed it down for our wedding/honeymoon; unfortunately, I'm probably gonna have to sell my fiance on the idea.


Destination: Bahamas/Florida 


This is where I need help as to which ship.


Line: NCL vs. Royal Caribbean 

Ships: Getaway vs. Anthem of the Seas 

Stateroom: Courtyard Penthouse vs. Junior Suite

Can't really speak to RCCL.....our first in many moons isn't until 2020.........spousal unit wants to try a 'mega' ship.

What I love about NCL ........we get to eat when we want....where we want.....at a table for 2...unless it's Teppanyaki...even if there are just 4 tops available. Formal wear is entirely optional and you don't feel out of place if you do....or don't. The Waterfront adds another level and the Penthouse cabin in the Haven is on another level in terms of service and amenities. Get the Spa Thermal suite pass.....

The downside to NCL is they will try to nickel and dime you to death.....ignore the various attempts. If the traditional cruise experience is what you're looking for.....formal nights.....traditional dining....NCL may not be the experience for you.  As a checkerboard couple I've not experienced anything negative and are leaving on our 17th NCL cruise in 5 days. Either way....Congrats.....Good luck and ENJOY !!

The Getaway if your doing a Penthouse, no question. You have many more perks vs RCCL. You will have a butler and Concierge, a private restaurant for Haven guests etc. 


Congrats! When are you looking to go?
