The Best Cruise For Your Personality

By michellehorton |

Now that we’ve established that a cruise vacation can be the best kind of babymoon for a pregnant woman — whether or not you’re bringing kids along — you just have to decide which kind of cruise to take.

It’s not just Caribbean coasts and snorkeling excursions, people.

If you’re not crazy about seeing young flat stomachs on young skinny bikini bodies, there’s a cruise for you. If you’d rather see historical landmarks than white-sand beaches, there’s a cruise for you. If you’re looking to do more relaxing than adventurous excursions, yes, there’s a cruise for you.

Here are my suggestions for the best cruises for your personality:

The Best Cruise For Your Personality


Perfect for: the pregnant woman who feels overwhelmed and stressed.

What you’ll do: There’s something about being immersed in nature and seeing larger-than-life natural wonders that makes your problems seem seriously insignificant. Go enjoy the exotic beauty in this world (like massive glaciers and rare wildlife) and I guarantee you’ll be more excited to bring a new life into it. (P.S.: Being outdoorsy is a plus.)

Keep in mind that most (all?) cruise lines have a cut-off limit during pregnancy, and Norwegian Cruise Line is the 6-month mark. But if you’re planning on cruising before your 24th week, there are plenty of advantageous for you.

    I’m definitely a Caribbean/Relax kinda gal. When I’m pregnant, nothing is better than sitting in the sun on a warm day with an ice cold beverage. I could totally see myself doing that on a Caribbean cruise!

  2. SunnyChanel says:

    How about if you personality says “I’ll go on them all!” They all sound so awesome it would be nice to do any and every. But for me I’d love to do Alaska. That just sounds fun and fascinating!

  3. Whit says:

    The trick is finding a cruise that two personalities can agree on! Luckily the buffet usually brings everyone together.

    I’m totally a Pacific Coastal girl since I’m in NC – I would LOVE to get out & see the other side of the country!

    My parents went on an Alaskan cruise, and they LOVED it. I mean, how else to see such a majestic place? I’ve never cruised, so I’m thinking my first one might have to be somewhere warm and tropical.

    These are great tips, Michelle. I’m not pregnant but this is still really helpful info. Thanks!

    LOVE this post my dear! I was never a big fan of cruises until I read it. And if it wasn’t for you, I would have never thought to have a babymoon. Great info – loved the slideshow. Thanks for sharing!

    I’m all done with pregnancy, but I love these tips. I’ve always automatically thought Caribbean when dreaming of a cruise, but you have me thinking outside the box.
