When planning a holiday, couples search for destinations and resorts that are solitary and peaceful so that they can spend more quality time together. Research indicates that couples are far more likely to indulge in romantic experiences aboard a cruise than on a land based vacation. With land hundreds of miles away and the sea floor maybe thousands of feet below, you and your beloved are truly adrift in a sea of seclusion. Being so far from the real world is a liberating, intoxicating thing. |
Here are a few tips to make your next cruise more romantic –
Advance Planning – A good cruise ship offers a myriad array of on-board activities and amenities so select your ship with care and plan activities that you both can enjoy together (like dance lessons for couples, ice skating, conquering the rock wall etc.). To avoid disappointment and find good deals; book surprises like spa treatments, specialty dinners, shore excursions and romantic packages in advance. 1) Let in the sea and the sky - If you're travelling as a couple you'll want accommodations that offer a romantic atmosphere of their own and a perfect option are balcony staterooms onboard. Enjoy gorgeous sunsets and cocktails, intimate chats, moonlit dinners or simply relax and catch up with each other in the comfort of your balcony. A romantic blend of seaside activities and private time. 2) Romantic destinations – Choose from the best of South East Asia and cruise to destinations like Penang, Koh Samui, Phuket and Langkawi. For a unique and memorable romantic experience take the 7 Night Borneo Explorer to Puerto Princesa, Philippines; Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia and Bandar Seri Begawan, Brunei. 3) Gourmet: Formal night in the dining room makes any special occasion even more special. For some private time, enjoy complimentary room service in your stateroom until midnight. Use flexible dining or try the specialty dining options that provide a delicious cuisine in romantic, intimate settings. The pre-cruise reservations service ensures that you don't miss a delicious moment. 4) Time it right – If you have time, choosing a longer cruise helps limit the number of children on board.
5) The secret hideaways: Explore a little. Find quiet lounges, lost corners of sun decks, the outdoor promenade at night, a quiet corner of a top deck. Feel the wind in your hair and the fire in your hearts. 6) The starry night sky: Drink up the moody night sky as you cuddle under the rigging, splay out on deck chairs or sip frosty margaritas at an open-air bar. 7) The cozy cabins: Pretend you are stowaways, all snug and content in your stateroom. Even in the smallest cabins, you'll find everything you need at arm's length including each other. 8) The breakfast in bed: The knock at the door, the snazzy waiter carefully carrying a softly clinking tray into the room as the ship pushes through the waves. Wake up together in true luxury. 9) The Spa with a view: This is the best couples bonding the ship has to offer. Nearly every cruise ship now offers a spa, but the quality and services offered may vary widely. With various therapies, a steam room and the option of a couples massage – relax and rejuvenate together as you sail through the high seas!
