What Is The Ultimate Romantic Cruise Vacation?
It doesn't really need anything else added to it to bring romance to mind. Just the words "Caribbean Cruise" are enough to invoke romantic images in the minds of most couples. With all the usual trappings of cruise travel, plus the special magic provided by the colorful culture of the Caribbean islands, a Caribbean cruise is the ultimate romantic getaway and a perfect honeymoon choice.

There are many different companies offering Caribbean cruises so the first thing you need to do is collect information on what's available. When planning your vacation you will need to make two lists - one of which has the excursion itineraries of each available cruise, and the other lists the facilities provided on each cruise ship. Also check out the type of cabin you will be able to afford - you will be spending quite some time in this space so it needs to be the best your budget will cover. Investigate what the quoted fare includes and make a note of any surcharges, port taxes, excursion costs etc - these can add up and if you are going to make the most of your Caribbean cruise, you need to keep it within an affordable budget. Look into any special interest theme cruises that will be offered by the cruise company, these could include hobbies, music, age groups, couples only, etc. This cruise will be the trip of a lifetime for you and your partner, so make sure that you choose the trip that will give you both everything you are looking for - luxury, adventure, and of course, romance!

Depending on the itinerary that your chosen cruise offers, you and your partner will be able to enjoy such romantic experiences as exploring a rainforest or swimming under a waterfall in St. Lucia; walking on the beach in the Bermuda moonlight, or scuba diving in the beautiful clear waters of the Caribbean. A cruise is the perfect way to get a taste of each of the individual islands that make up the Caribbean - once you've had a quick visit to a number of different islands; you'll know which of them you'd love to return to for another visit - perhaps even a second honeymoon! For the ultimate in romance, how about getting married on one of the islands that you visit? On a Caribbean cruise, almost anything is possible!

Back on board your cruise ship, you can spend the hours traveling between ports and islands by relaxing in your cabin, or having a spa treatment at one of the ship's facilities. There are usually plenty of deck activities arranged for those who want to take advantage of them, but for those who prefer to spend quality time with their partner, there's always the sun deck where you can lie under a Caribbean sun on an adjacent lounger to your partner, making dreams for your future together.

Once the sun goes down on your daily Caribbean cruise adventure, and you've returned from your daily land excursion, you have the chance over dinner to share experiences with other cruisers sharing your Caribbean adventure. Haven eating your fill (and then some!), you and your partner need to choose how to spend the evening - will it be one of the on board cabaret shows, gambling in the casino, or dancing the night away in one of the discos? Don't forget to take a walk around the deck before returning to your cabin for the night - the memory of the romance of a walk under a starry Caribbean sky, mingled with the soft sound of music coming from one of the dance floors and the smell of the ocean will stay with you long after your romantic Caribbean cruise is over.
