A moonlit stroll on the promenade deck. A candlelit dinner of elegant French cuisine. Gazing into your lover’s eyes as you move around the dance floor.

What better way to reconnect and make memories together than in the enchanting vastness of the high seas. It’s a gift for your relationship.

Whether your idea of a romantic getaway is never stepping out of your cabin or enjoying all the amenities, fun and relaxation a vacation can offer, romantic Valentine’s Day cruises are an excellent way to treat yourself and your loved one to something extraordinary.

Elegant suites with lavish accommodations are available for those who plan to spend most of their time basking in the glow of each other’s company. While balcony cabins cost a bit more, the roominess and comfort are worth the expense. These suites include all of the amenities of home and then some with plush queen size beds, full furnishings, a personal view and private veranda. Special treats for lovers can be placed in the suite upon guest arrival and might include champagne, flowers, fruits, robes and slippers. You can even arrange for rose petals on the bed.

For those who enjoy the intimacy of romantic cruises and also love to take advantage of everything the ship has to offer, there is a variety of activities that couples can enjoy together. Exotic pools, spa treatments, dance lessons, classes, sports and gaming are available. Full top-shelf bars, live music, and movies make for an excellent outing on a romantic date night for you and that special someone. Capture the heart of your lover with an exquisite box of chocolates or sexy lingerie from the ship’s boutique gift shop. Top that off with a romantic walk with a breathtaking view before you turn in for the evening. All the ingredients for a memorable romantic getaway are literally at your fingertips on board a luxury cruise ship.

There is something inherently dreamy about being on the ocean in a luxurious cruise setting that makes even the toughest cynic melt with romantic ideas. Gentle ocean breezes and magical starry nights capture hearts and create a mood that speaks the universal language of love to one and all. While this may sound like a fairy tale, you can easily write your love into a story of a romantic Valentine’s Day cruise.
