    You'll have a great time on any cruise; I've never been on a bad one. I never take less than a 7 day cruise now and still am just getting to finally know the ship by the time I leave. Shorter cruises, even 5 days, seem to end just after I get there. The Southern Caribbean route is my favorite so far and St. Marteen is my favorite island although many others also have fun things to do and nice scenery as well. St Lucia is very nice as well. Most of the lines offer plenty of fun but there do seem to be more kiddies on Carnival so if this bothers you stay away. The kid density is much better if you go when they are in school however when most families don't schedule vacations. I personally like Carnival but thought Royal Caribbean provided a 'classier' ride. Depends on your taste, Carnival is more of a 'party' boat. If you like tours be sure to check out the reviews on line. I've found great tours not provided by the cruise lines that gave much more at a better price but you have to do your research to find them. I think you;'l find a great romantic time at sea!

    The Dominican Republic has multiple direct flights daily from NYC. The all inclusives work, but more and more people find the restrictive. Check out a small town outside Puerto Plata called Cabarete, as it has numerous condos on the beach, villas for rent and lots to do randing from sports to nature walks.

    my vote is for the cruise. We like Royal Caribbean (have also been on Carnival, Princess, and Sunquest) Freedom of the Seas. There was a climbing wall, water surfing, ice skating rink, movie theater, and lots of kid friendly activities. You should be able to stay under your budget, and the great thing about the cruise is that all your food is included. Shore excursions would be your biggest added expense, but you can always pick less expensive things to do, or just get off the ship in port and walk around the port area (usually shops nearby).
