In February last year at Sheraton Hua Hin, in Thailand. The four-day destination wedding was fun to say the least!
Jordan, Greece and Spain through the Royal Carribean Cruise. “We decided to do a cruise because we had never been to one together and after the four-day big Indian wedding, we felt we needed a trip where we could balance the relaxation with the touristy things,” laughs Dhrishti. After a bit of research, the couple zeroed in on Royal Carribean and she says it was the most relaxing holiday ever, with Spain being her favourite part of the journey.
DETAILS OF THE TRIP
First, the cruise docked at Aqaba, Jordan and Dhrishti and her husband did a whole tour where they had lunch at a desert camp, Bedouin style and then went around the city. After Jordan, they passed through the Suez Canal, a “truly inspiring spot” as she calls it. The next stop was Chania, Greece! “We really enjoyed the whole Greece feel. We went on a city tour and had a great time, the people are amazing,” Dhrishti recalls. After a few days in the cruise filled with activities and games, the ship docked at Barcelona, Spain for a four-day trip around town. The hotspots included Park Guell, Basilica De La Sagarda Familia, the stunning museums and gallivanting around Rambla every day! “We just loved it!” she trills.
FUN THINGS TO DO
The 15-day cruise is full of activities - Jewellery-making, city tours, dance classes, aerobics, debates, wine tasting etc. Plus you can watch musicals, magic shows and movies on the pool deck at night. For Dhrishti, nothing could beat watching movies in the middle of the sea and cycling around Barcelona!
TIPS FOR HONEYMOONERS
Dhrishti recommends all the three places equally. “They are three totally different destinations with such diversity and beauty! My tip would be to make sure you always carry the most comfortable clothing and footwear and just enjoy every part of a country. Don’t miss out on any unique location in each destination.
