I have been on two cruises before and am trying to convince my boyfriend to go on one with me. He has never been on a cruise and hasnt really been on a "proper beach holiday". He lives in England and our last few vacations together have all been to the states, so I would like to go somewhere as "foreign" or as "unamerican" as possible in the Carribbean/Bahamas leaving from the Eastern US. Our big Europe vacation will be this fall, so this is to tide me over until then
Well that pretty much rules out any cruise ship that I can think of in the caribbean.
Perhaps one of the Costa ships in the Med... cruise the Greek Isles
That might be very "american" as well. Maybe if you let us know what that means, we can help you find what your looking for.
Life is too short to let the ship of your dreams sail without you.

For instance, when I went to Cancun a few years ago, it was basically just like being in America, but actually when I was in Nassau, it seemed more "foreign". So after some further searching, it looks to me that a southern Caribbean cruise might be our best bet? I know the ships are all going to be American, over the top, etc, but since hes never been on a cruise before, that will at least be new american-ness to him
Or what about Bermuda? USVI? Or I just found a Royal Caribbean itinerary that goes to Belize?
