With the main wedding season fast approaching, many couples are in the midst of making very important decisions and one of them is choosing where they want to spend their first post-wedding getaway.
Just as weddings have become more extravagant over the years, so have honeymoons. This makes the decision of choosing the perfect newly-wed spot even more important.
With endless possibilities available, couples are recommended to narrow down the list by considering factors like cost, local climate, and the activities and experiences that are offered.
Every couple has a different idea of what romance looks like, from relaxing beach holidays and fun city breaks to exotic adventures, so it’s just all down to pinpointing which destination suits both of the partners’ personalities and interests.
Those who wish to visit multiple locations on their trip may consider embarking on a luxury cruise ship that takes travellers on a voyage of discovery while also offering the finest in cuisine, entertainment and the most luxurious accommodation.
James Cole, founder and managing director at Panache Cruises said: “The key to planning a tailor-made honeymoon that’s right for you is to take both of the partners’ travel palates into consideration and choose a destination that delivers everything you both expect from a holiday.
“Many couples like to jet off to the honeymoon classics like Hawaii and Maldives, however there are plenty of other options for those who wish to jet off to more unconventional destinations, like South Africa or Bali.
“Honeymooners who wish to discover as many beautiful destinations as possible with their limited holiday time, often opt for cruise holidays which enable them to visit multiple bucket-list locations at once while enjoying a stress-free and luxurious holiday.”
