It’s hard to come up with a concrete definition of romance…its sort of a vague notion that’s different for everyone. Most people can tell you what they think is or is not romantic but one characterization certainly does not fit every couple. However, spending an evening with that special someone under a starry sky on a small cruise ship in the middle of the ocean is certainly a good place to start!
Azamara Club Cruises’ “Nights in Private Places” is possibly the most romantic experience a couple can have at sea! “How is that possible?”, you ask, on a cruise ship that is shared with a little under 700 fellow guests, not to mention the crew. Well let me tell you about it.
At the bow of the Azamara Journey and Azamara Quest there is a small, secluded spa deck, which is closed off from the rest of the ship. It includes the ship’s thalassotherapy pool and it is this area that is reserved for “Nights in Private Places.” The twinkling stars above and the many glowing candles scattered about (battery operated for safety), softly light the entire space. There is access to a locker room, shower and bathroom facilities just steps away. No worries about privacy. Azamara has made sure of that!
A butler will greet you at the start of the evening with soft frette bathrobes, slippers and chilled champagne with chocolate covered strawberries. Step into the jetted pool to relax while the butler reviews your options for dinner. He will then prepare a sumptuous buffet complete with fresh seafood and meats cooked on a sizzling hot stone grill. Will you drink red or white wine or your favorite cocktail? A lovely table is set for leisurely dining. After dinner, enjoy cordials and petit fours, continue to enjoy the pool, or ask the butler for turndown service on the large, canopy bed specially made for sleeping under the stars. In the morning the butler returns with a continental breakfast.
Now I don’t know about you, but to me, this is incredibly romantic! What an extraordinary surprise this would be for your partner! Azamara's “Nights in Private Places” is perfect for engagements, anniversaries, birthdays, or just because. The cost is $495 and this experience can be booked once you are onboard.
