Your honeymoon is supposed to be one of the most amazing times in your life, and it should be. This is the time for you to relax with the person that you love and take in the sights of the world as you start your lives together. That is why you should pick your honeymoon carefully, but also you should do something that won’t spend all of your money. Let’s face it, once you get home you are going to need money too. However, you can take a luxury holiday without breaking the bank if you follow these 5 tips for taking a luxury cruise on your holiday without breaking the bank:

  1. Do your research. There are a lot of place on the Internet to find great deals on luxury honeymoons. If you use your good friend Google you should be able to find a good value for your money. Be very specific in the searches that you are doing because you may be surprised at the level of detail you can achieve if you just search.
  2. Book ahead. If you try to book your luxury honeymoon the week before then you will be paying more than you should. That is why you should look into your honeymoon at least 6 months before you go. This will give you time to make good plans and get special prices and reservations. If you do this kind of planning in advance then you will have a lot more leverage with the hotels and cruise lines because they will know that you are prepared. This gives you a lot more room for negotiating with them for the terms that you are truly looking for.
  3. Don’t forget to apply for your passport if you don’t have one and are going abroad. You should do this at least 3 months in advance because you never know what sort of problems you could have. Sometimes they will delay your passport for no reason at all other than someone sketchy shares your name. Just be prepared.
  4. Don’t forget to get your shots. Even on a luxury cruise you might be out in the water and be going into some ports that have diseases. Protect yourself and your spouse by getting the right kind of shots before leaving.
  5. Relax. You are going to have a great time on your honeymoon, so take a deep breath and enjoy your time with the one you love.
