Cruising 

  • Venice, Italy - not your generic cruise experience, the 7-night Greek Isles & Turkey sailing onboard Royal Caribbean International's Splendour of the Seas visits Croatia, Turkey, Greece and Italy where couples can embark on a Secret Tour of Venice shore excursion

  • Nice, France - imagine a boutique 7-night cruise sailing from glamorous St. Tropez through the Balearic Islands onboard the Le Ponant yacht operated by Compagnie du Ponant and then onto Nice.  You'll experience 24-hour room service, delicious French cuisine, entertainment and still have time for sunbathing on the intimate lido deck
  • Buenos Aires, Argentina - Princess Cruises offers a 13-day sailing onboard their Grand or Star Princess departing from Buenos Aires, the second largest city in South America.  Highlights of this choice include opportunities to enjoy tango lessons, sightseeing to places like Eva Peron's Casa Rosada, and authentic regional cuisine

Caribbean

  1. Personally, it's all about Myanmar for me! Particularly because it's definitely 'out of the box' for a honeymoon location! However I can think of nothing better than lounging on Ngwe Saung Beach in Myanmar! There are hardly any tourists and it's seriously one of the most beautiful beaches in the world; perfect for romance and escape, absolute paradise! http://www.myanmarburma.com/en/pages/attractions/53/ngwe-saung-beach

    Not to mention that you've got ancient Bagan and beautiful Inle Lake to visit also! Ahhh I love Myanmar!
