Romance on the High Seas
Taking a holiday is one of the best ways to relax and unwind. Soaking up the sun, taking a lazy stroll along the beach, sipping a cool lunchtime drink and enjoying a siesta are worlds away from the daily grind. Work can be forgotten about, the dreary weather left firmly where it belongs and routine forsaken.
It can be easy to lose sight of romance in daily life too, as everyone goes about their daily business of earning a living, managing a home, seeing family and socialising with friends. If you’re looking to recapture a little romance with your partner, a holiday together can be the perfect antidote to everyday life and what could be more romantic than a cruise? Luxury, indulgence and pampering are what cruise holidays are all about, with everything you could ask for on board and no need to lift a finger yourself.
Life at sea
Cruises come in all shapes and sizes, however, so if you’re planning a break with your partner it is important that you do your homework beforehand. Naturally, you’ll pay careful attention to where you want to go and which sights you’d like to visit on day trips, but you also need to check out just what amenities are on offer, what your accommodation is like and what type of fellow passengers you can expect. A romantic holiday can take a very different turn on a ship full of children running about, entertainment geared towards a completely different age group and a lack of privacy.
Of course, most people have their own notions of romance. Some people love to stay up all night partying and dancing and others prefer to stay more low key and spend time relaxing together.
It’s always a good idea to see what type of cabins are on board. Suites, staterooms and even villas are available on many ship alongside the more traditional rooms, so for the ultimate in romance make sure you have a sumptuous space rather than a cramped cabin.
Relax and enjoy
Cruise ships are also renowned for the quality of food they offer. Tales abound of feasts, banquets and delicious delicacies that make dieting firmly a no-no. When you’re choosing your cruise, don’t forget to look at what restaurants are on board and make sure you can book a private table for two.
Entertainment is another word that is synonymous with cruise ships, but it certainly needn’t involve cheesy singers and bad karaoke (a real passion killer). Dancing, music and cocktails are the perfect way to while away an evening. During the day, many cruise ships have adult-only pools and other areas you can sneak away to and enjoy some quiet relaxation.
It’s not just about your time on board, either. When you have decided where you’d like to cruise, check out the places you’ll be docking and what type of day trips are on offer, so you can enjoy some time exploring before returning to the ship.
So, next time you’re talking about a holiday, perhaps you’ll start talking about taking a cruise.
