honeymoon: to tell or not to tell?

missL | Apr 29, 2005 03:17 PM

Hi everyone,
I am going on my honeymoon to Europe soon and I've heard both good stories and horror stories about telling servers, managers, hotel staff, etc. that they are on their honeymoon.

Some people have told me that whenever they mention the word "honeymoon", they almost always get better service and/or specialties (ie, dessert on the house, a rose, etc.)

Other people have told me that they get better service, but with a price they weren't expecting. In other words, they take better care of you, but they tack on a hefty extra charge for it.

Any recommendations as to which tactic we should use? If it helps, we're planning on Greece and Italy.
