Going on a vacation usually brings out the romance. Couples needing to get away. Mom and Dad planning some alone time on a trip. Or singles finding that romantic encounter you see in the movies.
Romance is found around the world, at sea and on land. It can be a candlelight dinner overlooking the ocean or a couples’ massage at a resort spa. For some it’s getting away to a seaside boutique hotel with no televisions or phones. For others it’s the once-in-a-lifetime adventure on safari in Africa. Romance is what you want it to be. It is not one size fits all.
Some of my favorite trips to plan are honeymoons. Honeymoons are all about love and romance. One honeymoon I planned was a 7 Day Eastern Caribbean Cruise that included stops in St. Thomas and St. Maarten. The couple planned a great balance of spa treatments and relaxation on sea days, and they snorkeled and sailed while in port. They spent most nights dining alone at a quiet table for two, and ordered room service for breakfast and ate on their balcony watching the ocean.
I always enjoy finding out what my clients like doing to make their vacation special. I have even taken some of those ideas for my own vacations. On Princess Cruises they have a ScholarShip@Sea Program that includes pottery classes. On one cruise we took a class and made our own bowls and painted them. On other cruises we have opted for the pre-made pieces that we painted. It’s a great way to have a souvenir and a memory. It was fun and we got to create something together.
Romance can happen anytime and anywhere. Where do you find it?
