Romantic cruises and Valentine's Day Cruises

Valentine’s Day Cruises – VitalChek’s Cruise Series

In February 11, 2017

With Valentine’s Day just a few days away, you’ve probably already planned out an extravagant and romantic date night for you and your love. If you haven’t, check out the first in our cruise series. We gave some insight on cruise vacations; cruise types, where they go and what kind of cruise may be right for you. If you haven’t been able to nail down the perfect romantic getaway, you’ve still got some time to plan a romantic Valentine’s day cruise. Romantic cruises can be a perfect way to indulge your significant other, while getting the opportunity to enjoy a vacation away yourself.

What’s so different about cruises for couples?

While our cruise series continues to dive into the various types of destination and themed cruises available to travelers, this portion of the series covers the romantic and Valentine’s Day cruise options. In most cases, romantic cruises are limited to couples only, no families with children allowed. Because their goal is enticing romance, an adults-only atmosphere is appealing for travelers who want to get away with their sweethearts.


When one imagines romantic cruises, thoughts of dancing cheek to cheek, couple’s massages, wine and jazz music probably come to mind. Taking in tropical sunsets with your honey on the deck of a cruise ship conjures images of romance and love, while relaxing in spas, by the pool, or even just enjoying a nice quiet meal together may be the perfect Valentine’s Day experience for you.

What sort of amenities do romantic cruises offer?

When booking your cruise for couples, some things to consider can include a fancy stateroom, flower delivery, chocolates and other specialty items to help make the most of your romantic getaway. Depending on what cruise line you’re interested in, packages that cater to romance will vary from spa packages to romantic room deliveries and entertainment and events on board.


Some things to inquire about when booking your Valentine’s Day Cruise:


  • Champagne – If you’re willing to spend a little more, having champagne already in your room when  you board the ship can be a consideration.
  • Chocolates and pastries – From extravagant assorted chocolates to chocolate dipped fresh fruit, romantic cruise packages generally have an option to treat your significant other with some fancy candy or gourmet goodies.
  • Flowers – No bouquet too big or small, assorted roses and other floral arrangements can be delivered or waiting in your stateroom.
  • Romantic dining – Reservations for romantic dinners, couples brunches, or even sweet breakfasts tucked away from the bustle of busy ship traffic can be made to give you some quality one-on-one time with your honey.
  • Assorted spa packages – Whether you choose to gift your loved one with a day at the spa or you prefer to experience a relaxing package together, romantic cruises will cater to your relaxing desires with a variety of spa packages.
  • Photography sessions – Sometimes romantic cruises are the perfect place to plan an engagement or vow renewals. If you’re planning to go big, most cruise lines offer professional photography to capture your special moment.


Cruises for couples can take away most of the guesswork when it comes to planning the perfect romantic weekend or vacation. Even if you miss the boat for Valentine’s Day, romantic cruises are available year round to destinations all over the globe, so you could also present the gift on Valentine’s and take the trip later.
