Later this year, you and your beloved will say “I do” in a beautiful wedding ceremony. Once the friends and relatives who are flying in for your big day head back home, you and your newly-minted spouse want to head out for a romantic and fun honeymoon adventure. To give you some ideas on where to go and enjoy your romantic honeymoon vacation as a married couple, consider the following suggestions:
Antigua and Barbuda, West Indies Honeymoon Vacation
Getting married is certainly wonderful but let’s face it—planning a wedding can be stressful and time-consuming. If you are looking for lots of romantic downtime, it’s hard to beat Antigua and Barbuda. You can spend the day lounging and strolling along gorgeous pristine beaches, take a sail on a catamaran, and shop for souvenirs at the busy markets while admiring the charming buildings painted in pastel colors.
For lodging, Curtain Bluff is a fine choice; it is located on a rocky promontory on Antigua’s south side and is surrounded on both sides by the Caribbean sea. Enjoy lots of amenities and activities when you are there including sailing, scuba diving, water skiing, and more.
For couples who want to get in a lot of post-wedding relaxation but don’t want to travel to the Caribbean to find it, a cruise to Alaska will definitely deliver. Holland America Line offers Alaska cruises that set sail from multiple cruise ports, including Vancouver. If you wanted, you could always extend your honeymoon by a few days.
Prior to boarding your boat, you could explore Vancouver and its surrounding areas. Of course, being with your sweetie will automatically make this trip the best Alaska cruise ever. But to make your vacation even better, watch for discounts and deals to make your honeymoon as budget-friendly as possible.
Maui, Hawaii Honeymoon Vacation
There is something about a vacation to our 50th state that is inherently romantic and incredible for a honeymoon. While you really can’t go wrong with any of the islands, there is something extra magical about a vacation to Maui. The island offers plenty of opportunities to relax and enjoy the ocean and scenery, as well as lots of great places to eat, drink and be merry.
Take a whale-watching trip while you are there or just pack some snorkels for some fun under-the-sea sightings. You can also take helicopter tours around Maui or to the surrounding islands, or stay for the majority of your time in Maui with a day trip to Oahu or the Big Island.
For honeymooners who want to head to Europe, you will be sure to have a memorable time in Copenhagen, Denmark. You can see castles, take a day trip to hike in the woods, and of course, take some selfies by the famous Little Mermaid sculpture. If you get a kick out of Danish design, a trip to the Design Museum Denmark is a must; it is filled with gorgeous art, glass, fashion, ceramics, and more.
A visit to the Rosenborg Castle, which dates back to 1606, is also a must. There you can walk the halls and pretend you are Danish royalty while checking out the Knights’ Hall and its coronation thrones as well as the King’s private living areas.
Congratulations and Enjoy
You simply cannot wait to tie the knot and then head out for what promises to be a wonderful honeymoon. Whether you decide to go for warm sandy beaches in the West Indies, an Alaska cruise package that combines relaxation with adventure, or a Hawaiian adventure, or a journey to Copenhagen, this trip promises to be fun, romantic, and memorable.
