Re-connect over a cocktail and canapes

What better way to truly spend some quality time with your partner than over a plate of delicious cuisine - accompanied by a couple of dazzling cocktails of course?

Princess Cruises’ speciality dining offerings already possess such a romantic atmosphere, that all that’s left for you to do is sit down and soak it up.

Take Bistro Sur La Mer for example. This bistro is inspired by the crème de la crème of French cuisine and serves us crafted dishes that will leave you simply saying ‘wow’.

So, whether you opt for the mouth-watering lobster bisque garnished with lobster, scallops, mussels and quenelle or Bistro Sur La Mer’s astounding take on fish and chips, with garlic-saffron and tartare sauce – you both are guaranteed to be pleased.

Alternatively, for those lazy mornings where you simply want to cherish each other’s company, opt for Ultimate Balcony Dining for a private breakfast delivered to your door.

Proving how Princess Cruises brings all the best experiences to you, Ultimate Balcony Dining is likely to be the most extravagant breakfast you’ll ever be served, and we think it is the perfect way to lap up those early morning sea views, slow down and be as one with your partner.

Get steamy with your special someone

No, not like that Susan, we are talking about Princess Cruises’ ultra-relaxing spa services in the Lotus Spa and the adults-only The Sanctuary.

Enjoy a couples massage at the Lotus Spa to relax together – the Aroma Stone Therapy programme is our favourite, where heated stones will be carefully placed on the perfect spots on your back to release stress and built-up tension.

What’s more, the Lotus Spa also offers the option for you to schedule a full day of spa services. So, why don’t you and your special partner go for the full hog of treatments – from facials to massages and exit feeling like both you and your relationship have been refreshed.

The Enclave Thermal Suite with the Lotus Spa also provides relaxation and rejuvenation, with the line’s largest-ever thermal suite and the hydro-therapy pool. Get toasty and dry on one of the heated stone beds or opt for one of the fun water beds.

Another relaxation hotspot is The Sanctuary, the exclusive adults-only retreat with Princess Cruises. Here, you can both also opt for a massage – but this time it's al-fresco. The special touch in The Sanctuary is the Serenity Stewards, who will go out of their way to provide everything you need, such as a chilled face towel or a signature beverage.

Cosy up and immerse yourself

As the ultimate date night activity, Movies under the Stars allows both you and your partner in crime to dive into the latest blockbuster at sea.

Picture this – cosying up underneath a plush fleece blanket, under the midnight sky, lying on a lounger with the aroma of freshly popped popcorn floating around the poolside amphitheatre while you get swept away in a heart-racing action scene – heaven.

While you’re at home Netflix date nights will (unsurprisingly) never quite match up to Princess Cruises’ level, this is an experience that you both can cherish and look back on.

Not to mention the fact that the open-air cinema holds showings throughout the day as well – the perfect way to spend a sea day together.
