The Cruise Web Current Monthly Newsletter: Romance at Sea Edition - January 2010 January 20, 2010 Edition 2.1 1-800-377-9383
Photo Highlight
Love is in the air! With Valentine's Day just around the corner, this month's Current showcases the ever present bond between cruising and romance. And what better way to start out than with a great shot of a happy couple on the deck of a cruise ship!
Actually, the happy couple in this photo is our own Assistant Sales Manager Arthur B. and his wife, Yelena, who were married on a cruise ship! We asked Arthur to share this experience with us and he was gracious enough to do so in this month's blog (below).

Romance at Sea
There are many reasons to take a cruise vacation. Sometimes we want to take a special trip with our family. Other times, we seek the adventures of new destinations. And then there are the times when we just need to get away to relax. Among all reasons, however, cruising for "love" typically tops the list!
The romantic nature of cruising the world's beautiful oceans and visiting exotic destinations makes cruise vacations a perfect escape for couples in love.
Whether you are walking hand in hand down a breathtaking beach with gentle waves splashing at your toes, or sharing an after-dinner drink on your private balcony while looking up from the sea to the brightest moon and stars you have ever seen, spending quality vacation time with your significant other tends to strengthen bonds in magical ways.
One of the greatest satisfactions of my job is hearing back from customers about the wonderful weddings, honeymoons, anniversaries, and romantic getaways that The Cruise Web helped them plan. I hope to hear about yours next!

This month we profile Jennifer Crivelli, our wedding and romance at sea specialist. Jen has an extensive background in wedding and event planning. Combine that with her love of cruising and travel and you have a bona fide romance and travel specialist.
In her four years with The Cruise Web, Jen has helped over 30 couples plan their weddings at sea. When asked why cruise ship weddings are so popular, Jen had this to say: "It's easy to be married at sea because there are so many options and it's completely customizable."
While weddings tend to be her forte, Jen also loves to book clients for other romantic getaways.
"Weddings aside, I love booking clients for their special occasions because you get to help them make an unforgettable memory that they'll cherish for a lifetime"
The only thing Jen might love more than planning her client's romantic getaways is the Baltimore Ravens. Jen has never missed a single Ravens home game. If it's football season and a home game, chances are you'll find Jen clad in purple from head to toe and cheering for her Ravens.

My Cruise Ship Wedding
by Arthur B., Asst. Sales Manager
I cannot believe it has already been three years since our wedding on board the Crown Princess. Looking back, I must say that it was a truly great and stress-free experience.
My wife Yelena and I knew at the onset that we did not want the big traditional wedding. Hosting such a big event and especially planning for it was not something that appealed to us. Having been in the cruise industry for a short while already, I knew how popular cruise ship weddings were.
