Disconnecting from life and sailing on a cruise into the sunset with the one you love most is already very memorable, but some planning ahead, you can really take your romance to the next level on your cruise! Here are a few ideas!
#1 Dine Under the Stars
Make reservations for a specialty dining experience that features dining al fresco (outside). Enjoy the view as well as the food at The Waterfront with Norwegian Cruise Line when you reserve one of the ship’s several dining options along the seaside promenade. Another great option is The Lawn Club on Celebrity Cruises’ Silhouette & Reflection which feel much like a lush park at sea, with a ½ acre of (real) lawn, outdoor games like bocce ball and croquet, and even live jazz music. Into something more BBQ style? If so, you can cook your own meat, potato, & veggie skewers under the night sky at Hot Rocks Grill on Silversea Cruises.
#2 Reserve a Cabana
For some luxury, enjoy the solitude of a private cabana. These can vary by cruise line & port, but many have lounge areas with air conditioning, a TV, private bathroom, butler service, or even an outdoor deck. Cabanas can be at a beach or pool, depending on the available options.
#3 Take Over a Hot Tub
During times when most passengers are busy preparing for dinner or enjoying the evening show, it’s the perfect time to jump in and enjoy a quiet hot tub soak. If you might rather a private hot tub on your stateroom’s balcony, some cruise lines offer suites that offer balcony soaks, like the Owner’s Suite on one of several Norwegian cruise ships or the Royal Suite on one of several Royal Caribbean ships.
#4 Have a Port Date
Do some research ahead of time & plan a special date in port with your special someone. This could be as easy as an excursion, or an elaborate day complete with a private tour and lunch reservations at a secluded local spot.
#5 Make it Spicy in Your Stateroom
Pack a few things to increase your stateroom’s romantic vibe. Battery-operated tea lights, artificial rose petals, & silk pillowcases are small yet thoughtful touches sure to surprise and delight your partner. If you’re celebrating a special occasion, pack a banner to hang with magnets on the walls of your cabin.
#6 Dine Al Fresco on your Stateroom’s Balcony
Room service can provide extraordinary romance when you dine together while watching the sunset. Princess Cruises, as one example, offers their Ultimate Balcony Dining, which offers an upgraded room service menu & a nicely dressed table.
#7 Get Married, Propose, or Renew Your Vows on your Cruise
The ultimate romantic gesture on your cruise is to plan to have or to plan an actual romantic event on your cruise. You can get married on a cruise ship, in port, or set up a romantic proposal, or even renew your wedding vows. What a great memory!
