You don’t have to plan a trip to a luxury resort, a glitzy spa or a vibrant city if you’re looking for a romantic honeymoon. How about booking a cruise where you can experience the best of all worlds onboard a stellar ship offering everything that these places promise - and more?
Savvy travelers have long known that not only are cruises a good value for the money, but honeymooners are now discovering that sailing the high seas offers the best of all worlds – including romance. The typical price of a cruise often provides airfare and includes ground transportation to and from the port, as well as onboard accommodations, meals and activities.
If you factor in the comfort quotient: unpacking only once, sleeping while the ship takes you to exciting new ports, enjoying endless facilities and world-class entertainment, the value of a cruise exceeds any other vacation. Added amenities, such as state-of-the-art gyms, spas, lectures and enrichment opportunities are just the "frosting on the cake," so to speak. So, don’t hesitate, book your honeymoon at sea and sit back and enjoy the experience.
Norwegian Cruise Lines seems to have a real handle on what honeymooners are looking for. In fact, if you wish to be married at sea, they are experts at staging those, too, followed by honeymoon memories guaranteed to last a lifetime.
Their latest – and greatest ship – the 4,100-passenger Norwegian Epic, featuring all-balcony suites and home to world-class entertainment, such as Blue Man Group, Legends in Concert and Cirque Dreams and Dinner, is a great choice. With 20 restaurants and a range of amenities including the first ice bar at sea, an expansive Aqua Park, rappelling and rock wall, casino, designer boutiques, as well as a luxurious spa and fitness center you’ll never lack for something to do when the ship isn’t in port.
Of special note for honeymooners are the luxurious spa suites with circular bed, in-suite hot tub and access to the exclusive access to a private courtyard with its own pool, hot tub and sundeck. This area is accessible via a private key card and includes cabanas, hammocks, an exercise room and a steam room. The spa suites also feature butler and concierge service.
When night falls, the Epic offers a treasure trove of activities. One of the “coolest” is Svedka Ice Bar inspired by the original ice hotels in Scandinavia. One of only 14 in the world, it also the only true ice bar at sea.
Everything, from the bar, the walls, the tables, the stools - and even the life-size sculptures are made out of ice. Fortunately, the crew provides faux fur coats to keep you warm in the chilly 17 degree temperature.
For something sultry, Spice H20 transforms into an adults-only steamy, Ibiza-inspired beach club alongside the aft pool, which becomes a dance floor after the sun goes down.
The Epic offers Caribbean and European itineraries, depending on the season but the unique ship itself promises a special experience, anywhere it sails.
