Beware the Weather

While the brochure promises nothing but sunny skies and peaceful waves always plan ahead. While your tiniest bikini may be just the thing to woo your new hubby, remember to pack comfortable clothes too. Far too many people get sunburned before they know it. Especially on the open water where UV rays reflects more violently. Also don’t forget a jacket and at least one long sleeve outfit. Another weather snafu of the open seas is that winds are MUCH cooler so it may not always be as warm and tropical as you might imagine.

Consider Your Health

While most cruise ships are required to have a doctor on board, it is still a good idea to take along everything you need, may need and numbers for emergency. Over the counter medications that most people like to have on board are as follows:

  • Tylenol and Motrin or generic equivalents
  • Motion sickness pills
  • Anti-diarrheal medications
  • Allergy
  • Birth Control/Contraceptives
  • Pepto Bismol

Honeymoon cruises are different for everyone but finding the cruise ship and cruise sector that is right for you and your spouse is imperative. Keep in mind that many cruise ships have different specifications. Some are adult only and some allow kids with guardians. If you aren’t kid-people or at least not yet, you might consider an adult only cruise where you will be assured privacy. However, bear in mind that some adult only cruise lines carry an atmosphere that might not be marriage friendly. So make sure to do your homework to find out if you will feel comfortable on board.
