Why Cruising is the Most Romantic Vacation for Couples

What could be more romantic than a luxury cruise? From ocean to river ships, you’ll find romance on these special voyages.

If roses and chocolates seem too cliché for Valentine’s Day, you only need to stand on the deck of a luxury cruise ship together as the sun melts into the horizon and the ocean sways below to know the romance of the moment is irresistible. So, it’s no wonder cruising is a top choice for honeymooners and those celebrating anniversaries and milestone birthdays.

Celebrating Love at Sea

After months of frantic wedding planning, the bride and groom can enjoy a stress-free escape, relaxing on their balcony and enjoying fine dining and entertainment while being whisked from one stunning location to the next. The only decisions to make are when to have a couples massage and which cocktail to try next. Even if your honeymoon is a distant memory, cruising is the perfect way to rekindle a romance or spark a new one. The Executive Concierge onboard a luxury cruise ship will be more than delighted to arrange a special celebration – a vow renewal, an anniversary dinner, or even a surprise engagement.

With luxury cruising, the stresses that come with other types of vacation are taken out of the equation. The captain is the designated driver, Destination Services organizes the shore excursions, restaurants, and room service are readily available, daily housekeeping is included, and entertainment options are available every evening. Some cruise lines even include free laundry services. All these things are taken care of, leaving you free to enjoy each other’s company.

If you prefer, you can even go your separate ways during the day, then share your stories over dinner. Or join other couples for a date night and exchange your travel tales.

Single and Looking to Mingle?

Cruises are also an inspired choice for singles who’d prefer not to be. You will share the ship with mostly married couples, happy families, and like-minded singles. On a recent World Cruise, there were 55 singles onboard traveling independently who met up daily for cocktails and conversation.

But what about single parents on vacation with their kids? Groups of friends who might also be single and looking to mingle? Or are other solo travelers looking for someone special? Work with a trusted travel advisor to select the best cruise line and itinerary for your situation. On selected itineraries, cruise lines waive the single supplement making a cruise vacation even more affordable.

Cruises bring people together in various ways, from the buffet line to events on board, increasing the chance of running into the same person multiple times. Onboard activities and shore excursions enable people to meet others with common interests. People can quickly build a connection because they see a lot of each other in a much shorter period of time than if they were back home.

On a practical level, cruises are a reassuringly safe environment for singles. While other forms of solo travel can get lonely, there is always someone to chat with on a cruise or a group activity to join.

Whether you’re honeymooning, re-kindling a relationship, or looking to find love, a cruise vacation provides opportunities to celebrate romance.
