Before you make any decisions you and your sweetie should sit down and make a list of what you would like your honeymoon to be. Is the best honeymoon location for you and your hubby a tropical beach resort, a big city, a cultural experience, a dude ranch or a cruise where you will visit several ports?

A quieter night may include sitting on the beach watching the sunset and seeing the moonlight waves carry boats in and out of the harbor.
