Ways to Spark Romance on Your Next Cruise
Written by: Stephanie on February 14, 2022
Disconnecting from everyday life and sailing off into the sunset with the one you love most already feels quite memorable, but with a bit of planning ahead you can really spark romance on your next cruise!
Whether you’re celebrating a birthday, anniversary, honeymoon, or a “just-because” trip, here are a few suggestions for spicing up your next cruise vacation:
Dine Under the Stars
Make reservations for a specialty dining experience that features dining al fresco. Enjoy the food and the view at The Waterfront with Norwegian Cruise Line when you make a reservation at one of the ship’s several restaurants along the seaside promenade. The Lawn Club on Celebrity Cruises’ Silhouette and Reflection feels like a lush park at sea, complete with a ½ acre of (real) lawn, outdoor games like bocce and croquet, and live jazz. Cook your own meat, potato, and veggie skewers under the stars at Hot Rocks Grill on Silversea Cruises. Or, make a reservation to dine at Candles between 7:30-9:30 PM on Windstar Cruises to relax with a delicious meal under a twinkling starry sky.
Take Over a Hot Tub
When other passengers are busily preparing for dinner or clapping along to the evening show, it’s the perfect time to indulge in a quiet hot tub soak. Prefer a private hot tub on your stateroom’s balcony? Some cruise lines offer suites that tout 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. (Check specific ships for availability.)
Schedule a Date in Port
Do a bit of research in advance and plan a special day with your loved one. This could be a simple excursion arranged through the cruise line, or an elaborate day complete with a private tour and lunch reservations at a secluded local hotspot.
Reserve a Cabana
For a bit of added luxury, treat yourself to the solitude and amenities of a private cabana. These amenities can vary by cruise line and port, but some have lounge areas with air conditioning, a television, a private bathroom, butler service, or an outdoor deck. Cabanas can be beachside or poolside, depending on the cruise line’s ports and offerings.
Order a Private Meal to Eat on Your Balcony
Room service goes from ordinary convenience to extraordinary romance when you dine together while watching the sun dip below the horizon. Princess Cruises, for example, offers Ultimate Balcony Dining, which features an upgraded room service menu and a fancily dressed table.
Spice Up Your Stateroom
Pack a few small goodies to elevate your stateroom’s romantic ambience. Battery-operated tea lights, artificial rose petals, and silk pillowcases are small yet thoughtful touches sure to please your partner. If you’re celebrating a birthday, honeymoon, or anniversary, pack a banner to hang with magnets on the walls of your cabin.
With some simple planning, a romantic cruise vacation can go from memorable to magical for the person you love most!
