New York, New York! :) We’ll be in New York for a few nights, staying right on Time Square, taking in the sights, shows, shopping, & food before getting on board…

A cruise ship for a 7-day New England/Canada cruise! :) Yay!! The cruise hits Halifax, Saint John/Bay of Fundy, Bar Harbor, Boston, Newport, and then back to New York. We’re super excited because it combines our original idea of wanting to go on a cruise – to an idea we had of wanting to go to the East Coast – to my personal preference of going to a destination where you can go see things and do things as opposed to just majority-of-the-time lazing around on the beach or by the pool (I get bored FAST in those types of trips).

It combines the all-inclusive food aspect of tropical destinations to the lovely, romantic cobblestone, lighthouse, old buildings and ocean aspect of an East Coast destination and throw in the New York aspect… you can’t go wrong. :) We’re especially excited to try our hand at going to an episode taping of The Colbert Report!!! (one of our favourite shows).

We love Stephen Colbert!!

We have signed up with Farlie Travel for a Honeymoon Gift Registry. (Our profile/page hasn’t been added to their website just yet though).

And as stated in previous blog posts, we’ll be encouraging guests to contribute to the honeymoon registry in lieu of physical gifts . :)

Overall we are excited our honeymoon plans have been finalized. There was a period of time where I was slightly stressing because I just didn’t know where we were going to go or what we were going to do and was also concerned about the cost. But I’m very happy with this honeymoon plan and I’m excited it’s another to-do that we can cross off the Wedding To-Do List now! Yay!

So have you been to New York? On a cruise? On a specific New England cruise? What did you think?!
