Best Cruise Line for Honeymoon?

I've been on one cruise on Royal Caribbean. It was wonderful but I was wondering if other cruise lines catered more to couples? I loved the food service on Royal but that is probably standard on all cruise lines, right? We decided to go cruise since we couldn't decide on a destination and we want a lot of entertainment and activities. Let me know what you think :) Thanks!!

    For your honeymoon, I'd definitely recommend Celebrity or Princess since they seem to have much fewer kids running around plus they're a step above Royal Caribbean, Carnival, and Norwegian. Celebrity welcomes you aboard with a welcome glass of champagne which is a nice touch ;)

    I've been on Princess and Carnival, and I would highly recommend Princess!!!

    We went on Carnival. It was cheap and we had a great time but there were tons of kids.

    [QUOTE]All cruise lines welcome honeymoon couples.  You won't find one much different from the others.  I usually recommend Royal Caribbean, Princess (The Love Boats), and Celebrity for younger people.  <u>Carnival is cheapest, but a step down in luxury from the others</u>.  Holland America is very plush, but there will be a lot of older passengers aboard (who will give a young honeymoon couple a lot of attention!).  I am sailing with them in March.

    i agree with all except for the underlined in a way. i found the service on carnival to far far far exceed princess. but it also depends on where you're cruising. carnival in the mediterranean is far different than in the caribbean.

    at the end of the day it will be what you make it. i choose based on ports and ship amenities rather than cruiseline. i'm not a huge fan of cruise ship entertainment so the casino, restaurants, state rooms and ports are far more important to me than the age of the other cruisers. as for catering to couples-if you face having to choose between an early and later dinner seating choose later as there are far fewer kids, choose the adults only pool areas, get yuorself a nice balcont stateroom for privacy and a break from the crowds and remember-youll have more kids during school vacation times no matter what line you choose-not only ont he ship but in port.

    cruisecritic.com is an excellent place to get reviews.
