Romance at Sea
By Jennifer Crivelli, Cruise Consultant, The Cruise Web.
Before “The Love Boat” ever aired its first episode in 1977, cruises have long been intertwined with romance. Understanding the important relationship between cruising and romance, today’s cruise lines provide a variety of ways to turn an unforgettable vacation into the unforgettably romantic vacation of a lifetime.
Set sail to exotic destinations while enjoying the sunset over the ocean. Enjoy a late night walk on the Sun Deck under the stars, as the moon glistens off the ocean below. Dance the night away in one of the many onboard lounges or cuddle on the pool deck while enjoying a movie under the stars. For those passengers still looking for that special someone, the singles meet and greet cocktail party is a great way to meet the man or woman of your dreams. And once you step ashore, the romance begins almost immediately: a gondola ride on the canals in Venice, strolling in the shadow of the Eiffel Tower in Paris, or walking along white sand beaches a Caribbean Island hand-in-hand.
Looking to make a romantic cruise vacation even more special? Cruise lines offer a variety of options to personalize the romance at sea. The onboard florist can make a formal evening more romantic with a corsage of fresh flowers. Treat each other to a relaxing couples’ massage in the onboard spa. Enjoy a champagne breakfast or dinner for two and a constantly changing view on the private verandah of your stateroom. And don’t forget to commemorate the romantic getaway with a professional portrait session offered by the ship’s photographer.
Cruise Ship Weddings fulfill the dreams of many brides, where the wedding ceremony is performed at sea by the ship’s Captain. Destination Weddings, offered in ports of call around the globe, give brides and grooms the opportunity of a lifetime – to have a beach wedding in the Caribbean, a glacier wedding in Alaska, a Tuscan wedding in the Mediterranean and more; the options are nearly endless. Cruise lines’ all-inclusive wedding packages are completely customizable to create the perfect romantic wedding, whether just for the bride and groom, or a party including family and friends. If you’re already married, you can renew your vows in a romantic ceremony onboard your cruise vacation. Vow renewal packages are offered on sea days throughout the world and are officiated by the ship’s Captain.
No matter what you consider romantic or what special occasion you are celebrating, celebrating on a cruise is a great way to make it special. And with all the different romantic options available both onboard and ashore, you can be sure the memories from your romantic vacation will last for years to come.
