Honeymoon cruise?? I'm Nervous!

Jump to last reply

This is long, I apologise in advance.
My husband-to-be loves to cruise and has been on many cruises with his parents while growing up.
I have never been on, nor ever wanted to go on, a cruise. In fact, the very thought of a cruise makes my stomach churn slightly. I was born in the States, but I have lived all over the world, and went to University in England - which is my absolute favorite place. I am not a snobby person, just shy, not really a "people" person, and my friends and family refer to me as a book-worm.
Here's my problem: my future husband's parents are giving us a honeymoon, which will probably be a cruise. I am scared for my first cruise experience to be my honeymoon. Although I do not really want to cruise at all, I would not refuse them a chance to spend time with us, however they choose. But, thankfully, they will not be on this trip, and I cannot think of one reason I want to go on this cruise. Is it wrong of me to complain about a cruise? And if it turns out that I cannot get out of this cruise, can anyone allay my fears about cruising? I am terrified of large, group excursions, having to eat dinner and being trapped on a boat with a bunch of annoying, old people, being seasick, and having no privacy. We are a young couple (I'll be 24 when we get married) and generally very active. Can I survive a cruise, and what are some tips from veteran cruisers?
