A romantic backdrop

A cruise journey will provide you and your significant other with an ever-changing romantic backdrop. From the brilliant colours of the sunset to clear evening nights embellished with dazzling constellations, any couple would be in awe. Not to mention the days watching exotic lands creep up over the horizon!

Even on sea days, the ocean acts as the dynamic backdrop to your romantic getaway. Thanks to the love-filled atmosphere at sea, you won’t be able to take your eyes off your special someone.

A shared adventure

On a cruise holiday, you will venture out into new destinations, socialise with locals and fellow travellers, and embark on an adventure both on land and at sea. Why would you only want to travel to just one place when you can explore several destinations all in one trip?

Eliminating the hassles of air travel, a cruise will drop you off right in the middle of the action. The convenience will have you and your partner hopping on and off the ship at every new destination. With several hours to a few days at each port of call, you two will have plenty of time to immerse yourselves in your new surroundings.

If you and your significant other want to get the most out of each destination, you can book from a selection of organised shore excursions and share a new experience. That way, you won’t miss a thing.

An exclusive touch

Many cruise ships are outfitted with facilities that will have you and your loved one sailing the open seas in maximum comfort and style. You can relax and unwind with your lover in adults-only retreats, private pools and hot tubs, or full-treatment spas. Alternatively, you can simply enjoy each other’s company on private-access balconies, in world-class restaurants, or in lavishly appointed suites. You two will have plenty of opportunities to connect.

Today’s cruise ships also offer numerous entertainment options. From dancing with each other to live music to zipping down waterslides together at the onboard waterpark, you will be able to try out new activities and experience new things with your loved one.

A date night in port

Planning an extra special date night during an evening in port is the perfect way to sweep your partner off their feet.

If your cruise ship docks overnight in a port of call, the destination will, without a doubt, boast a fantastic restaurant scene. Whether it’s a candle-lit dinner with first-class cuisine or a romantic picnic on the beach, your date night will be magical.

An all-inclusive experience

While some cruise lines offer their passengers all-inclusive packages, other premium and luxury cruise companies provide full-on all-inclusive experiences. Instead of dreading settling your onboard account at the end of your cruise, you and your partner can benefit from an all-inclusive holiday and leave your worries at the harbour.

Whether it’s giving a gratuity after your dinner reservation at a specialty restaurant or imbibing ambrosial cocktails before a night on the dance floor, opting for an all-inclusive cruise will give both of you peace of mind. Without having to worry about accumulating additional expenses, you and your special someone can spend more time focussing on each other.

Memories to last a lifetime

From al fresco fine dining under a star-strewn sky to a romantic cabana reservation for two, a love-filled getaway on a cruise will provide you and your significant other with enough memories to fill a photo album.

With so much going on (just check out the ship’s daily itinerary) and so many things to see and do on board and on shore, you might be afraid of missing out on something big. But have no fear; no matter what you and your partner end up doing, fun is guaranteed! You and your better half will depart the cruise ship with memories to last a lifetime and an even stronger relationship.
