Making Your Honeymoon Cruise Romantic
Your Wedding Place.com Exclusive Content
Romantic cruise vacations make for the perfect honeymoon getaway. Generally, simply sailing away on a luxurious ship below the night sky is enough to get the romantic juices flowing. But, if you want to make your honeymoon cruise particularly romantic, there are a few steps you can take.
Onboard Honeymoon Cruise Romance
The first step toward ensuring romance during your honeymoon cruise is selecting the right cabin. Many cruise cabins are the same and not particularly romantic. If you want to add that spark during your honeymoon cruise, it is best to select a suite or a verandah. The more private and out of the way cabins are also more romantic than the ones located in high traffic areas. A stateroom located in the bow or aft of the ship can be ideal, as can one located on a deck with few cabins.
Cruise lines also offer a number of romantic activities that you can take complete advantage of while on a honeymoon cruise. Formal nights, for example, allow you to have an evening of glamour and beauty that is just about the two of you. You can also purchase flowers or gourmet chocolates from the onboard boutiques and spoil your sweetheart after a pampering with a coupleís spa treatment. Private meals at specialty restaurants and personalized cakes and treats also add to the special getaway.
The cruise line you select will also have an impact on the level of romance. Some lines, such as Carnival Cruise Lines, are better known for their party-like atmosphere. If romance is what you are after, select a more laid back cruise line such as Holland America Cruise Line.
Romance Away from the Cruise Ship
The itinerary you select will also have a huge impact on the romance of your honeymoon cruise. There are a number of romantic destinations to select from, but be sure to avoid overfilling your days with activities. After all, you will want to have time to just spend with each other enjoying one anotherís company while on your honeymoon cruise.
Your shore excursions can also be quite romantic. Often, cruise lines will offer excursions such as sunset cruises or beach getaways that can be filled with romance. Or, you might choose to research the port of call ahead of time and come up with your own romantic plans for when the cruise makes its stop. For example, you might arrange a private excursion such as horseback riding, snorkeling, or sight seeing. You might also visit an excluded beach or visit a luxury restaurant.
Romance is easy to come by when on a honeymoon cruise. If you are searching for a romantic getaway, take care when selecting the cruise line, the cabin, and the itinerary and you will be sure to sweep each other off your feet.
