The beach bungalow was literally about 12 feet from the water and had this wonderful covered porch area, which came in handy when the daily one-hour rain shower rolled in. During the rain, we would simply play hand after hand of gin rummy and drink Hinano Beer until it cleared up.”

    “When all was said and done, our honeymoon probably cost us roughly $8,000-9,000 (the cruise being about $3,000 of that including drinks and extras and Sandals taking the larger $6,000 portion). It was a 12-day honeymoon all booked through a travel agent, which was very new to me so I'm not sure how much the actual airfare ended up being in all of that. It was included in our package with both Royal Caribbean and Sandals. Traveler's Joy helped us off-set that cost.”

  • Amanda & Ross Thailand

    “Amazingly, using airline miles to cover our airfare, and our Traveler's Joy registry contributions of $1,200, we spent only $300 on our honeymoon trip. Between the value of the dollar in Thailand, our awesome travel guide books, and our kind friends and family, we had the adventure of a lifetime on a very limited budget.”

    “Without Traveler's Joy, we wouldn't have been able to have a honeymoon at all. Emre is a graduate student and Annina works for a non-profit organization, so money is always a little tight. We paid for much of the wedding ourselves, and even though it was a small affair, it didn't leave much left over for a honeymoon.”
