Ever see one of those ads for a cruise line that has a couple frollicking in the ocean or enjoying a peaceful dinner in a beautiful dining room or even the heart shaped towels on a bed? There is nothing quite like escaping the every day stresses by going aboard a cruise ship but some cruise lines cater to couples better than others.
Princess is often referred to as the "Love Boat Line" by blending big ship ammenties and cozy couple retreat. While all their ships offer traditional dining options such as open-seating, Princess offers a more romantic option - Ultimate Balcony Dining. For an extra $100 per couple, guests can enjoy a lobster dinner with champagne in the privacy of their room on the balcony. The best ships for couples are the Crown Princess, Emerald Princess, and the Ruby Princess.
Go aboard P & O's Arcadia, one of the line's three adult-only ships. With their fantastic shaded retreats, meal options, and wedding packages, they are a great option. For a little extra, couples can try celebrity chef Marco Pierre White's restaurant at £20 - £30 per person.
The ship Paul Gauguin with Paul Gauguin Cruises sails year round the South Pacific with only 322 guests. It's tropical decor, restaurant style dining, and wonderful service are definitely worth the plane ride!
Both a sailboat and a cruise ship, Wind Surf is a beautiful hybrid to sail on with Windstar cruises. Fits only 312 passengers and offers real style. With glass-walled daytime indoor and outdoor dining, music lounges, state of the art electronics, and candlelit dinners in the evening, Windstar offers romance without the big port hassle of other cruise lines.
And of course, Celebrity cruise lines. Their newest ships cater to couples rather than families on vacation. With a grass lawn, guests can enjoy a picnic for two or they could enjoy their rooms that range from 300 to 1,636 square feet. And while it may not come cheap with top notch meal options and a relaxing environment, Celebrity Solstice, Equinox, Eclipse, Silhouette and Reflection are sure to rekindle the romance.
So if you are looking to spark some fireworks or rekindle a flame, make your next cruise for one of these fabulous ships.
