Are you newly engaged or planning a honeymoon? If you’re in search of a budget-friendly escape, consider a cruise to the Caribbean.
According to The Knot, 52 percent of couples choose to spend their honeymoon in a tropical setting, and the beautiful beaches and coral reefs of the Caribbean definitely fit the bill. A Caribbean cruise makes it easy to visit multiple island destinations in a single trip, and you can often score special deals on cruises that you may not be able to find at luxury resorts.
It’s easier than you may think to find a 6- or 7-day cruise for under $1,000 per person, well below the cost of a typical honeymoon. As of 2022, the average honeymoon price tag was $4,500 and lasted around 8 days, according to experts at Brides.
For couples on a budget, here are some of the best cruises and cruise lines to consider if you’re planning to vacation in the Caribbean with your new spouse.
