Exciting Entertainment

Every night can be a romantic date night on a cruise ship with the added benefit of not having to drive anywhere or pay extra. With scintillating entertainment choices that vary by ship, there is always something happening that will appeal to your taste and mood.  Lavish production shows in the spectacular theater, comedy acts, piano bars with fun sing-alongs, karaoke, dancing until dawn at the disco and movies – some outdoors on a giant screen, are just some of the riveting options. Spend some quality time with cocktails, conversation and cozy seating in one of the many chic bars with live music. Make new friends with other honeymoon couples at the many clubs and lounges. Perhaps Lady Luck will favor you with a win at the bustling casino.

Different Destinations

Honeymoon cruises can take you to several destinations, as opposed to just one at a land-based resort. Wake up to a different view nearly every day on most sailings. Explore different cultures and countries while only unpacking and packing once. Whether sailing to such storied and colorful destinations as the Caribbean, Hawaii, the romantic Mediterranean or anywhere in between and around the world, you will find unique experiences, friendly locals, fabulous shopping, breathtaking photo-ops and much more. Whatever your interests are, shore excursions can be arranged in advance to suit your preferences. You may even opt for a pre or post cruise stay in one of the glorious places you visit.

Fabulous Accommodations

 Delightful accommodations range from luxurious suites, mini-suites, veranda staterooms, oceanview and those that are inside.. A balcony or veranda is the ideal spot to toast this chapter of your new life with champagne or your favorite wine as the sun slips over the horizon. Have room service deliver breakfast and watch the glorious sunrise over your next beautiful destination. Depending on the cruise line, suite guests may have the services of a personal butler.

Relaxation and Romance

Cruises offer the perfect mix of romance, relaxation and all levels of activities. This is your time together, head to the spa for an unforgettable couples massage. Dine al fresco in the refreshing sea air under the stars or in elegant surroundings with sparkling silver and china. Arrange for a private table and savor world-class cuisine at a romantic candle light dinner. Take a leisurely stroll on the promenade and stop at the many restaurants, shops and posh bars. Find your perfect location on the sun deck (some ships even have a serene adults-only deck) and take a dip in the pool or whirlpool.

Whichever cruise ship you select your honeymoon at sea is sure to surpass your most romantic dreams as you begin creating cherished memories of your married life together.
