You dont have to spend time on a deserted beach, in the middle of Robinson Crusoe’s island to find romance . Cruising can be one of the most romantic holidays you could ever experience, mainly because there are so many dimensions to a cruise you would never normally find on a 14 day package holiday to the Maldives.
Romance means so many things to different people, whether your definition of Romance is a party-all-night ship or an ultimate pampering and luxury cruise for 2, its finding the right ship for you and thats where I can help you.
As a Piscean myself , I class myself as an ultimate romantic type , I could be having fun on a one of the ships waterslides or just watching the sunset with a G&T in hand from my private balcony, romance to me can come in a variety of ways. Little touches can also go along long way, and of course its the thought that counts and with many cruise lines, the thoughts are there in complete abundance.
So if you are looking for a little romance I have listed below some of my favourite cruise lines that can give you that extra special touch. I have opted for ships that have large private balconies, great bathrooms and extra special amenities, options for dining for two, cozy nooks and date night venues and finally almost-private open deck spaces for relaxing by day and star gazing by night.
PRINCESS-Big ship options and small ship cozy plus Romance has always been the LOVE BOAT line’s focus. They are traditionally known for having a high percentage of suites and mini suites with large balconies, delux canapes and upgraded bathroom amenities. What could be more Romantic than a night at “Movie under the Stars”, in which you recline on padded loungers , snuggled under wool tartan blankets on the ships pool deck in cruisings version of a retro drive-in.
P&O- Arcadia, one of 3 adults only ships, you can splurge on a suite for upgraded amenities like whirlpool baths, champagne and chocolates on arrival, daily canapes and full sized his n hers Molton Brown toiletry sets. Book a table at Marco Pierre Whites restaurant where the splurge id definately worthwhile with Romance in abundance.
SeaDream Yacht Club- 110 passenger yachts win top romantic honors for sophisticated couples who want luxury amidst a casual ambience. The ships are gorgeously restored, service is outstanding, personable, attentive and subtle. They are all inclusive too, which means tips and all drinks , not to mention unlimited caviar are included in your fare. The 195 square foot staterooms feature seperate seating areas with a small but exquisitely outfitted bathroom(huge shower for 2 with 3 shower heads). Add fine linens and great mattresses on the bed, high tech flat screen televisions and plenty of storage space.
Celebrity- There newest ships are sophisticated and hip and cater to couples on adults getaways. Plus, there are plenty of on board spaces tailormade for parties of 2, from wine bars to multiple sppeciality dining venues, doucle pool loungers and top deck picnics on the lawn. Suites range rom 300 to 1636 square feet, with amenities such as seperate dining room areas, baby grand pianos, whiirlpool tubs and large balconies. For couples who enjooy the Spa experience , Celebritys Aqua Class cabins ans suites create an oasis of calm on the bustling ships with massaging showerheads, complimentary spa orientated bath and body products and upgraded bed linens. Plus couples can seek further R&R with complimentary use of the aqua Spa relaxation rooom and Persian Garden and exclusive speciality restaurant Blu. The pool deck and adults only solarium also have double cozy beds and hammocks for snuggling in the sun. MMM yes please!!!!
