Ever thought about Alaska? absolutely amazing i am told, love to go on it one day, just need to do proper research and i might book for next year.
I have been to Alaska with Holland America. The cruise tour of 20 days. there best one. I do not think
the couple would go to Alaska in October. It was first class.
How about the Amazon, quite a few large ships go down there now, or possibly the area around Vietnam and the islands of Malaysia. I'm not too sure what the weather is like in these areas around October (assuming that is when you wish to sail) but both can be extremely hot (read that as humid) but at certain times of the year around Malaysia you can get typhoons and if you sail from the Caribbean to the Amazon then you have to consider the hurricane season (which extends from about July to mid November) although the Amazon itself is too far south to be affected by those. I've done both of these areas but went during our winter (Jan to March time) so I can't comment on the weather around October from experience. Hope this helps.
What about a Far East Cruise we are on one Nov 9th starting from Hongkong.
Just back from western caribbean cruise on Freedom of the Seas with Royal Caribbean. Fabulous weather. Ship top class.
Why not go a nlie criuse on a really upmarket boat and by 2010 the old cateract in aswan will reopen as a legend hotel so you could do a nile criuse and stay at old cateract hotel been there 30 times up market for special trip this is entirely different from sharmelsheik.
I took my husband to the Emirates for his 60th Birthday - we had a great time. Another place if you like to travel is around China / Japan area. Have fun!!!
I suggest South America and the Antartica. We will go January 30, 2010 with Holland America.
It is there summer time. I know couples who have been there. They said it was better than
they expected. Good Luck. Hope to see you

Been mentioned before but Alaska is fantastic, but be sure to add on the Land tour,. We flew to Seattle then took a 4 hour flight to Anchorage. Yousstay overnight there then go by coach to Mount Mackinlay Lodge then on to Denali Lodge. We then took the Princess train back from Denali to Whittierage, .
This train has a panoramic roof. You sit on the upper deck and all the facilities including dining, baggage,shop etc are on the lower deck. It travels about 40mph and takes about 8/9 hours to complete the journey. We went in June and were extremely fortunate to see the summit of Mount Mackinlay completely clear. A rare occurrence. We then cruised down to Vancouver via all the usual ports of all.
Have you thought about a Norwegian cruise,if you can take the time from work suggest you do the one to the top of the world. We have done this and found it was a splendid cruise.
The other cruise providing you do not mind flying is the Alaskan cruise out of Seattle or Vancouver, this is a 7 day cruise and also wonderful.
