For many cruise fans, romance and the high seas go hand-in-hand. There’s something about the salty air, the sound of the ocean, and getting away from it all that puts many of us in the mood for love. If you’re planning a romantic cruise, here’s part one of our top pick of the 10 most romantic things to do at sea.

Renew Your Vows 

This is arguably the ultimate in romance at sea, and the good news for couples is that there are many cruise lines and ships which offer vow renewal packages ranging from simple to quite involved, include cake, music, Champagne and an officiant. Cruise lines which may offer this service include Azamara Club Cruises, Celebrity Cruises, Cunard, Princess Cruises and Seabourn. 

Splash Out On A Suite 

If you’re celebrating a wedding anniversary, going on honeymoon, or just rekindling romance with your significant other, booking a suite is the way to go if your budget allows. Suites not only have more space and usually a private balcony on larger ships, but also often come with perks from priority check-in to butler service and more. A suite with a private balcony also allows you to be part of the action when you want to, but also get away from it all when you don’t.

Ultimate Balcony Dining 

If you’re cruising with Princess, and have booked a balcony stateroom or suite, you have the option of purchasing Ultimate Balcony Dining, an intimate and romantic dinner for two in the privacy of your accommodation. Perks include a hosted cocktail party, fresh flowers, Champagne and a deluxe four-course dinner which may include fresh lobster or a juicy steak, served on your balcony. Another option is to start the day with a romantic breakfast of special pastries, smoked salmon and other treats withe a half bottle of French Champagne.

A Couples Spa Treatment 

If your ship has a fabulous spa, why not opt for a leisurely afternoon of pampering together? More and more ships have spa facilities featuring couples’ treatment rooms, and a range of treatments for two. Examples include MSC Cruises’ Aurea Spa packages for couples, which includes a variety of massage and body treatments for two, plus facials. Other lines and ships offering couples treatments include the Lotus Spa on Princess ships, and the Mandara Spa on some Norwegian Cruise Line ships. 

A Titanic Experience 

Part of the P&O Edge program, the aptly named Titanic Moment allow passengers to recreate the classic pose on the bow of the ship, made famous by Kate Winslet and Leonardo di Caprio in James Cameron’s epic 1997 blockbuster. Fancy yourself standing on the bow of the ship with the salty wind in your hair as you cruise? It’s no longer fantasy, but a reality. Then head to one of the cocktail bars for Champagne!
