Taking a cruise on your honeymoon is a great way to hit up several destinations while taking in a view. Here, our travel editor offers insider tips from her recent trip around the Caribbean aboard Silversea's Silver Whisper.

St. Lucia is famous for its fantastic local food (and that includes chocolate!), and the majestic twin Piton Mountains. A great way to see the Pitons is to have lunch or book a spa treatment at Sugar Beach, a Viceroy Resort; set between the two mountains, the resort just went through a $100-million nip-and-tuck.

The property was once an 18th-century sugar-mill plantation—today the aesthetic is airy, colonial chic with a touch of mod thrown in. The sexy Cane Bar—which serves incredible rum—has eye-popping modern art and could fit right in in L.A. or South Beach. Luxury villas, which come with their own plunge pools, and the superb rainforest spa, are built on stilts into the hillside of one of the most sublime settings that exists. Rooms from $350.
