Are you looking for a little romance aboard your cruise line. Then, Princess Cruises could be an option for you. It owned the original Love Boat and still clings to the notion that cruising is the ultimate in romance and often helps you celebrate those “special” occasions on board. While midsized and large ships might not be your idea of romance, Princess turns on the charm with alfresco balcony dinners for two, adults-only sun decks with spa-like atmospheres and several alternative dining venues perfect for date night. Not to say you will find couples smothering you on the ship but we would just recommend that if you’re looking for that romantic sparkle then you might want to look into the detail on these ships before you make a decision.
