Cruise ship rides are notorious as romantic getaways. It is a date that is open to couples of all ages, from young sweethearts to older couples who have been together for decades. Getting on this romantic cruise isn’t enough to make it a memorable trip.
Listed below are eight romantic things that you can do as a couple to maximize the romantic experience:
1. Enjoy the sunrise
Wake up early and watch the sunrise together. As you’re on a ship surrounded by water, this is definitely a sight to behold. The rising sun looks magnificent as the sun rays bounce off the waves. You can partner this experience with a cup of warm coffee to start off your day.
2. Get a massage
Getting on a cruise is a chance to get away from your work and to relax. You can relax better by booking a couple’s massage session.
3. Take culinary classes
Some luxury cruise ships, like Celebrity Alaskan Cruises, offer sophisticated cooking classes on board. Learning how to cook with your significant other will be a great bonding experience. You can even extend the romance by cooking each other your favorite meals when you get back home.
4. Have a romantic dinner
There is something romantic about digging into the specialty dish of the cruise ship restaurant while enjoying the sea breeze as the love of your life sits across from you. You can make the experience perfect by reserving a table and pre-ordering the food. You may even be serenaded by a live band.
You can also watch the stars together. This is a romantic activity because if you live in the city where light pollution is severe, stargazing is rare. You can enjoy this activity on the ship’s balcony while cuddling underneath a blanket.
6. Visit the ports
Some cruise ships make stops as they go through their route. You can visit the port of the country the cruise ship stops in. You can buy souvenirs made by the locals. Touring a foreign country is truly romantic because you only know each other and you are surrounded by strangers. Just always keep your cruise card with you so that you’ll be allowed to reenter the ship. Also, be wary of the time. You don’t want to be left behind.
7. Take a night swim
Luxury cruise ships offer communal hot tubs that are perfect for keeping you warm against the chilly night breeze. Taking a swim together is another romantic activity to do.
8. Enjoy the sunset
The view of the sun setting is spectacular, especially when seen setting at the sea’s horizon. You can enjoy this view while drinking champagne and waiting for the stars to come out.
Those are just a few examples of the things you can do on board as a couple. The important thing to note is to make each moment memorable by trying out the things you normally can’t do. Be sure to check out all of the activities the cruise trip has to offer and, as a couple, try as much of the activities as you can. The bonding experience will definitely keep the romance alive.
