Booked Our Very First Cruise!

Well, after all the hoax and research, we finally booked a cruise for our 10th anniversary this year.  I am really looking forward to it.
We are going to the Bahamas for a 4-night cruise with Royal Caribbean.  We will be traveling September 15th - 19th.  
I know that will be hurricane season here in Florida, but I couldn't beat the rates.  We were able to book for $229/person for the 4 nights.  Trips in the middle of the Summer are around $400 for the same ship, line and destination.
Also, with such a great rate, we are going to be able to do some of the excursions. We have been given some great advice about which excursions are worth the money and which are not.  If you have been to the Bahamas before and want to share, we would love all the insider info we can get.
Even if the weather is terrible and it rains the whole time, we are going to have 5 days together with no children!!  We love our children immensely but we were only married 6 months before we found out we were pregnant with our 1st.  Needless to say, we didn't have much "couple time" at the beginning of our marriage.  We have managed a couple nights away here and there over the years, but this will definitely be a needed vacation for just the two of us.

Congratulations! It'll be so much fun. You'll love the food. We went on a Royal Carri bean cruise to Mexico (I live in California) - with kids. We enjoyed it a lot. It was all about the food...

Am happy for you, especially after what happened with the vouchers.
Have a great time, and may God give you both a peaceful and restful time.

My hubby and I are in the Orlando Area and have been looking into these same exact cruises. We decided to have our first child and then get married which baby was born end of July and we were married in October. I knew we would miss out on a Homey moon but we are no ready to go! I will have to take the advice of the trip planning as we are on a very tight budget. Thanks for the insight! We were looking at June/July but this may actually work!
