Whether you are a newly wed, been married for many years or just met someone, there are a number of ways to have a romantic time on your Royal Caribbean cruise. Here's a few of our favorite ways to show that special someone you care.
1. Buy flowers
You don't mess with what works and buying your sweetie flowers is a special way to show that you care. Not to mention flowers are not very expensive either. It can be just the right kind of surprise, be it just one rose or a full bouquet.
Flowers are usually available for sale from a cart on ships with a Royal Promenade, but are also available on other ships. You can also order flowers prior to your cruise departure via the Royal Caribbean web site.
2. Dinner date at a specialty restaurant
Dressing up and going to a special meal just the two of you might be the recipe for the start of a perfect evening. These days, Royal Caribbean has a number of restaurants to choose from and with the Adventure Ocean and Royal Tots Nursery to leave your kids at, there's a great opportunity to have some alone time at dinner.
It's hard to go wrong with dinner at Chops Grille or Giovanni's Table. If you want to really go all out, try 150 Central Park. Whichever restaurant you choose, ask for a table for two near the window.
3. Decorate your stateroom
Royal Caribbean offers stateroom decorations to celebrate a number of occasions. They usually consist of signs, streamers and other decorations on the walls and doors of your cabin. It's an easy and relatively inexpensive way to show you care.
Purchase the decorations before your cruise via the Gifts & Gear section of the Royal Caribbean web site and be sure to keep it a secret until you arrive at your room. You can choose between decoration packages to celebrate being just married, a honeymoon just celebrating the cruise.
4. Buy a romance package
Just like the stateroom decorations, Royal Caribbean offers a number of special romance packages to purchase to surprise your signifigant other with.
Booked via the Gifts & Gears section of the Royal Caribbean web site, there's rose petals, champagne, and lots of other gifts you can select from.
5. Couples massage
The Royal Caribbean spa is a great way to relax and for couples, there are couples massaged offered on every cruise to share in a relaxing moment. Don't forget there are couples massages also offered on Royal Caribbean's private islands if you prefer land based relaxation.
Tour the spa when you board your cruise ship and see which massage package sounds perfect to you. Look for deals on port days to save a little money.
6. Put a special message in the Cruise Compass
If you want a special way to say you love someone, how about a personal message in the daily Cruise Compass? Guests may have messages added to the Cruise Compass by speaking with someone in Guest Services onboard your ship and costs $25 per message.
7. Order room service
Room service is always a ritzy way to have a private meal and ordering room service breakfast to be delivered to your balcony might be the perfect way to start a romantic day.
Room service is complimentary on Royal Caribbean ships, so order it the night before and have it arrive right on time and set up for you and your special someone where ever in your stateroom or balcony you think will be best.
8. Renew your vows or get married
Royal Caribbean recently revamped its onboard wedding and vow renewal offerings and if you have the money for it, having a special ceremony onboard may be a great way to show your affection (again).
Royal Caribbean offers a number of packages to choose from and your best bet is to start at the Royal Weddings department and browse what is available.
