Cheap Honeymoon Ideas and Packages

Honeymoon  on a Cruise Ship

Cruise lines tend to set their prices and ports of call around 1 to 1 ½ years in advance. It is customary to find the best deals as soon as the cruise line announces their cruise schedule, or savings can also be realized by booking at the last minute. If you have the stomach to wait, you can get a really good deal within 30 days of sailing, however, I recommend booking early, as you will be very busy the last month before your wedding.

Cruises and all inclusive vacation resorts are similar in that all of your food and entertainment are included in the price. The only additional costs are: tips, alcoholic beverages and any excursions that you may take.

Most cruises depart from major port cities; if you live near the departure city you will avoid the expense of traveling to the ship.

Shorten the number of days that you will be away for your honeymoon and take a trip close to home. For example, if you live in the northeast, an inexpensive vacation would be to visit the mansions in Newport, Rhode Island.  The preservation society sells tickets to 5 mansions for $30.  Most of the mansions have an audio tour and you can stay in the mansion and walk the grounds for as long as you like.

You can tour the "Cliff Walk" and enjoy the view of the houses from the back and listen to the waves breaking on the shoreline.
There is also a lovely boat trip that you can take and see the mansions from the water. 

If you have the time, you can take a day trip to Martha's Vineyard and just stroll around the town.
