How Far Ahead Should I Plan My Honeymoon?

Plan Enough Time for Updated Travel Documents

A new passport can take 6-8 weeks. Some countries require visas, which require your passport for the stamp, and can take an extra 3-4 weeks to process.

Destination and Style of Travel

Rule of thumb: for international travel and cruises, about one year to 9 months out is ideal. Special pricing can be offered inside that time frame. Exotic trips like Africa, the South Pacific, and the Antarctic are best planned at least one year out.

As soon as you know when you want to travel, sit down with a Travel Advisor who can guide you on planning strategies. These days, you can book many cruises up to two years out, so if you have specific ideas in mind (like a suite), put your honeymoon plans at the top of the to-do list.
