First comes Love, then comes Marriage, then comes a Bermuda Honeymoon!
63 years ago this week, Nan and Pop were on their honeymoon in Bermuda. After being married on July 7, 1956, at the Church of St. Vincent Ferrer in Brooklyn, with Uncle Ted and Nan's best friend Nancy Budd as witnesses, they clearly left for Bermuda, as they were on their way back to New York 9 days later. Their ship, the Queen of Bermuda, sailed July 16 and arrived in New York on the 18th. If they left immediately after the wedding, and sailed 2 days on either end of the trip, they had a week-long honeymoon vacation at their destination. I imagine that the designation "5 HB" in the column for baggage means that between them they had 5 pieces of handbaggage, but I'm just guessing on that.
