Mallory and Jonathan spent their honeymoon in Greece: Athens, Crete and Santorini. They loved their experience and were kind enough to share it with us!
Athens: Our timeframe was great! We got the sights done in one day. We definitely recommend getting to the Acropolis in the early morning before it gets crowded. I think we were there at 8:30am and by the time we left, it was getting very busy. We visited Areopagus, Ancient Agora, Syntagma Square, Ministiraki and Plaka. The flea market (Ministiraki) was very cool! We stayed at the New Hotel and it was great! The people were friendly and helpful and the place was immaculate. Their rooftop bar is pretty cool with a great view of the Acropolis and the location was perfect for getting around Athens. We would recommend it!
Crete: Crete is much bigger than we realized and doing some research ahead of time is recommended. Domes of Elounda is a pretty neat hotel with fantastic views! We got an amazing Villa upgrade, which was incredible! Thank you, thank you, for that. It was unreal (2 bedrooms, three bathrooms, our own pool, kitchen, etc…). Amazing.
Santorini: The ferry was excellent, thank you for recommending the business class seats. As advertised, they were way better! Canavas Oia Suites is a really neat place, obviously with amazing views and service. The Santorini Wine Tour was great, we had a really fun time on this excursion! We met other couples, we loved the guide and obviously enjoyed the wine. It was well worth it to do this excursion and I would highly recommend a wine tour to anyone that likes wine!

Shannon and Dan spent their honeymoon in the beautiful city of Rome, the gorgeous Amalfi Coast and then the bustling city of Barcelona. “We loved each city – each for different reasons. Rome with the history, sights, and the great food! After a whirlwind few days in Rome, heading to the Amalfi Coast was perfect.”
We could not have imagined a more beautiful place than Ravello and Palazzo Avino! There are just not adequate words to describe the beauty of the views (not to mention the beach club – WOW). Our upgraded room had a great balcony where we shared drinks and snacks every night looking out on the gorgeous water view. And Ravello was just what we needed – we did excursions such as to Capri for a day, but it was so nice coming home to quiet Ravello full of the nicest people! And, wow, Barcelona – so amazing in its own way. The pool and location right on the beach was perfect for relaxing after our busy days exploring the amazing city! The city truly is electric you can feel the enthusiasm.”

Caitlin and Connor wanted a relaxing and tropical vacation and decided on the Maldives and stayed at the incredible Six Senses Laamu. “We learned that the Maldives are compiled of 1,200 islands and over time resorts have taken over islands south of the mainland, Male. The Six Senses Laamu rests on its own island which is extremely peaceful. Our over the water villa was even better than we imagined. A clear floor, all glass sunken bath tub, outdoor shower, and one jump away from being in the Indian Ocean.”
“A boat picked us up and drove us to a remote island a little bit away. Our GEM (Guest Experience Manager) asked us what we wanted on the island. Naturally, we asked for one thing and one thing only…cold beers. As we pulled up to the island, staff is grooming the sandy beach and a gentleman puts up a set of stairs for us to get off the boat (I felt like I was on the Bachelor.) We arrived on the island and I’d say they nailed it. An umbrella, two cushions, two towels, and a cooler packed full of ice cold Coronas. We had the best afternoon!”
“My advice to couples packing and getting ready for their honeymoon is to enjoy it. Enjoy every second of it. Enjoy each other’s company, the intimate setting, and the special place where you and your husband/wife had your first married trip together. It will be a memory you’ll have forever. Thank you Katie for a trip of a lifetime!”
