Would you mind if your family decided to go on the same 7 day cruise you’re going to for your honeymoon? Parents, aunts, cousins etc.

    YES I would mind! This is a time to celebrate your relationship, be by ourselves, enjoy the things you do and NOT have to worry about what faux pas aunt Dora is going to commit at dinner tonight and whether your MIL is in a good mood. Or even if you should take them into consideration while planning your day. Don't get me wrong, I like my FHs family and we get along well, but... You've been putting up with all their crap, "well-meant advice" and family drama for months while planning the wedding and then they're tagging along to your honeymoon? From me, it would be a huge HELL NO.

    I would absolutely mind, but you can’t do anything about it other than book a different cruise or avoid them at all costs. I wouldn’t share anything about your honeymoon, other than just the general cruise for 7 days.

    Yes, absolutely I would mind. We plan on being married for the rest of our lives, so there will be many, many other holidays to go on which aren't centred on our relationship - but this one is intimate, private, and not one I'd want to share with my family or my in-laws, lovely though all of them are!

    Switch your honeymoon asap and don't tell anyone where! That's just crazy. Very inconsiderate.

    Yes! Honeymoon is for the couple only! Sorry but I don’t see where you’d really enjoy yourself with everybody there too.

    Yes I would mind! That is for me and my new husband!
    Some of our good friends are getting married the week before us. My mom had this insane suggestion that the 4 of us should honeymoon together.. I was like uhh no.

    You have a lifetime of family vacations and one honeymoon. Having family join you on the honeymoon would not fly for most people.

    Neither my fiance or I would mind my parents or his dad but his mom is so controlling that she would try and dictate how we spend our time and she would try and have all the time with him instead of me and him together. We are not letting anyone come with us for that reason but he would live if my parents came since they have NEVER went on a trip together.

    Unless the wedding is also taking place on the cruise, I would absolutely mind. A honeymoon is not a family vacation.

    I definitely would mind! I personally would switch to a different cruise and not tell them. Any other vacation, totally fine, but I would prefer my honeymoon to be just me and my husband.

    100%. Ships these days may be big but you will inevitably run into each other somehow. Avoid.

    Eek! It all depends on your relationship with them I guess? While I LOVE my family and my husband's family I would want that personal space with just the two of us Smiley smile Hopefully you are able to change the dates or request for them to change it lol.

    Yes I would mind. A honeymoon is meant to be for the two of you not for the whole family.
