If you’ve chosen to spend your honeymoon on a cruise then the next step will be to choose where in the world you want to sail to. Depending on your destination and your cruise liner you may find that you are able to depart from a UK port, however you might need to fly to a specific destination in the world and pick up your cruise from there. If you are flying to your cruise port then be sure to book flights that coordinate with the correct time zone and ensure that you allow enough time for transfers and possible delays.
You may find that the cruise you choose to take on your honeymoon not only travels to a specific part of the world, but they may in fact have a dedicated theme such as an Art Cruise, a Food and Wine Cruise, A Golf Cruise or an Artic Cruise, to name but a few.
The great thing about spending your honeymoon on a cruise is that you’ll get to see so many different destinations as a couple over a short period of time. If you were to travel to all of the different destinations on separate holidays or breaks it could end up costing you a small fortune. Below is a breakdown of romantic destinations to visit on your cruise honeymoon.
Several cruise liners depart from the dock in Southampton every day for incredible European destinations.

Some European cruises may require you to fly to a specific destination in order to pick up the cruise, but if this is the case, why not take advantage of the destination you have to fly to and extend your honeymoon a little bit further.
