Food fans

Try the main dining room areas for dishes prepared by renowned, international chefs. Go for some Italian on one night and try Asian-inspired dishes on another. Everyone loves options. If you’re more of a burger and beer kind of couple, opt for a casual dinner date experience paired with a few rounds of him vs her bowling.

Picnic under the stars

Ignite that spark by enjoying features like real lawns on select ships which provide the perfect spot for sharing a picnic under the stars.

Nightlife

If you and your sweetheart are after a little more night time fun after all that sun, sights, sand and relaxation, many cruises offer dinner theater shows,  professional acrobatics, aerial performances and nightly live music which will take date night to a whole new level.
