Happy Valentine’s Day! When it comes to a romantic vacation away from the daily pressures and interruptions of life, nothing can be more romantic and offer a better way for you to connect with your honey than a cruise. In honor of Valentine’s Day, here are just a few ways a cruise can benefit you and your relationship with your Valentine.
- You are forced to put your cell phone away. The daily distractions we allow, whether it is the constant email interruptions, text messages or social media alerts, all contribute to controlling your time and attention. And despite what you may think or how understanding your partner is, you cannot give your full attention to someone while paying attention to these interruptions. On a cruise, you rarely, if ever, see a couple sitting down for dinner where they are both engrossed in their cell phones. It just doesn’t happen because you don’t have (or don’t want to pay a gazillion dollars to get) internet and cell phone access. We actually really enjoy this “vacation” from technology and find we give each other a little more attention to each other.
- For those with kiddos who travel with you, on a cruise you have a built in “activity agenda” for the kids that does not require your presence. So, you and your sweetie can enjoy the day together, just the two of you. Cruise ships offer a huge variety of activities such as a couple massage or simply relaxing by the pool with a cold drink and a good book. If you are an adventurous couple you can challenge each other on a rock wall climb or race on the water slides. Even better, enjoy a beer tasting or martini class. The options are endless and best of all, you get to spend the day with just the two of you.
- A cruise is a great way to explore new parts of the world together and create new experiences. The ports of call on a cruise give you the opportunity to see multiple parts of the world instead of just one vacation location. And most people agree spending money on a vacation and cool experiences has a much more positive impact than spending the same amount of money on something like a new car or an item that slowly fades into the background. Creating life experiences with your sweetie helps deepen your connection and create lifelong memories.
These are just a few of the many reasons a vacation on a cruise ship can do wonders for your relationship. We HIGHLY recommend you take at least one cruise vacation a year to reconnect with your sweetheart. And PS — what a great gift to surprise your honey with today!
