The beauty of a Royal Caribbean getaway is that its a bundle of fun and excitement for all ages. But we know the importance of getting away on an adults-only retreat and spending some quality time with your other half, too. That’s why Royal Caribbean has some of the best features at sea – whether you’re explorers, dare devils or relaxation seekers, you’ll find something to tickle your fancy. But in case you’re wondering what adventures you can head on, here’s our guide on creating the perfect Royal Caribbean couples retreat…
One thing you can be guaranteed onboard Royal Caribbean is that you’ll experience plenty of first-at-sea excitement – if you’re a couple looking for an action-packed holiday, Royal Caribbean have you covered.
Nothing oozes romance more than watching the sunset – and when you can do it 300 feet above sea level with 360-degree views, it’s a special experience. Just picture sailing out of New York City or Barcelona and soaking up the breathtaking views from high in the sky on the sensational North Star℠. The Ice Skating rink will give you chills of excitement – not only can you catch amazing shows but you can skate circles round each other, too. Adrenaline seekers – you won’t feel a rush like it elsewhere when you head on the RipCord by iFLY® – hold hands as you experience the ultimate sky-diving experience right on deck – you don’t get that on your average date night.
All that excitement can set you seeking for some serious R&R – and we couldn’t think of a better way than hitting the adult-only solarium. Enjoy a dip in the pool with no need to worry about any kids, or get hot and steamy in the hot tub. Really push the boat out and treat that someone special by indulging in a glass of champagne and some chocolate-covered strawberries. Or relax your body and mind with a hot-stone couples massage – you’ll discover a whole new you. If you’re up for something new, you can even take a dance class together and learn the dance of love – the Tango.
Date night on a whole new level
There’s plenty of glitz and glamour onboard – the shows never stop coming. Immerse yourself into West-End classics, watch acrobats soar high above you or catch the high-diving antics in the Aqua Theatre – there’s so much to take your breath away. Snuggle up and catch a movie – all the latest flicks are in the cinema, and if you’re looking for an ultra-romantic evening, cuddle up under the stars with a blanket and some popcorn at the outdoor cinema screen. You’ll be in fits of giggles at the fast-paced comedy shows, too!
Is your partner your lucky charm? Put it to the test in the Casino Royale for a night of poker, black jack and Roulette. Hi-tech adventures await you in the Bionic Bar® – where robots will mix your drinks! The rising tide bar will transport you across three floors like the ocean tide – one minute you’ll be in the promenade, the next amongst the lush greenery of the Central Park® area. It’s a unique way to enjoy your evening tipple. There’s live music, vintage wine bars and even a nightclub to get your toes tapping.
Take your taste buds on a journey
Of course the food is second to none onboard, but to take things up a notch you should check out the speciality restaurants. For premium cuts of steak, seafood and wholesome hearty dishes, Chops Grille steakhouse is the place to be. Enjoy a Lady and the Tramp moment in Giovanni’s Table – an Italian offering up an al fresco dining experience – cooking up your favourite pizza and pasta dishes. Of course, the complimentary dining areas are great too and with a wide range of eateries, your taste buds will be tingling with excitement. Jamie’s Italian is a popular favourite, too. Fancy a lazy night in? Order from the 24-hour room service and take your evening meal onto your own private balcony – there’s nothing more intimate than that.
Going the extra mile
If you’re celebrating a special occasion, Royal Caribbean certainly know how to make your trip one to remember. You can order a dozen red roses, wine and cheese, breakfast in bed, as well as luxury bathrobes and slippers. You can even purchase packages especially for the occasion whether it’s an anniversary, birthday or just a romantic getaway. And if you want to make it truly unforgettable, you can even add to your room décor with Happy Birthday or anniversary banners, and many other quirky decorations. Going that extra mile for your other half has never been easier.
Not to mention you can book private shore excursions for the both of you to enjoy without the hustle and bustle of other cruisers. Tackle the cobbled streets of Dubrovnik together or horse ride through the Caribbean sea. The best thing about cruising with Royal Caribbean is being able to cater your cruise to your every want and need – meaning the impossible becomes possible. You won’t experience a personalised adventure like it!
