Today everyone seems to be looking for that perfect honeymoon. An island resort in the Maldives, romantic beach holiday destinations is Sri Lanka or Thailand, trekking honeymoons in New Zealand for the more active and even scuba diving honeymoons on Australia’s Great Barrier Reef. The choices are many and sometimes making that decision where both you and your spouse are satisfied may take some compromise.
I decided on a crewed charted yacht for my honeymoon because being on a yacht for our honeymoon indeed seemed the perfect idea. For us, a yachting honeymoon was the best way of having the privacy and the quality time we wanted to spend together. To sail and travel about on our honeymoon at the same time was far more pleasurable than being restricted to a single resort. It was also a more relaxing way to see the places we intended to visit.
It cannot be denied that the wedding day is one of the most looked-forward of events in a person’s life. Well, specifically for women. According to a 2008 poll conducted by Women Magazines, brides thought that the most romantic honeymoon is one where they didn’t have to do any chores and would be served on 24/7. Further considering the cost, romance, seclusion, atmosphere and sense of adventure, 82% thought that a yachting honeymoon would probably be the most memorable honeymoon experience.
Where could you sail and travel? If you wish to see the beauty of the world in a few days, here are the suggested places you could visit:
