Published on October 4th, by Jack Cheng. Whenever you close your eyes, you can feel the nails running down the chalkboards on a torturous family cruise. A perfect retreat for young singles and active or mature couples, these voyages provide both premium accommodations and romantic getaways without the tantrums from the kiddie tables.
Romance and cruising would seem to go hand in hand, particularly if you've spotted any of the cruise lines' advertisements showing photos of couples snuggling at the bow at sunset, or sipping orange juice on their private veranda in bathrobes, or even -- and this one we have a hard time believing -- spending time alone on a deserted beach with their mega-ship anchored in the background. Advertisements notwithstanding, cruising can be one of the most romantic vacation options, but choosing the right cruise line and, even more specifically, the right ship within the fleet, can be a challenge. You don't want that sunset marred by crowds on deck, the romance of a dinner for two killed by the whiny kids at the next table or a cozy evening ruined by cramped cabins with minimal amenities.
Discover the finest sights our world can offer with someone truly special. But sometimes the best thing in the world is to get away from the kids and unwind with your better half. There will be no demands on your time as you savour fine dining complete with starched linen and elegant silverwaremeet fascinating new companions in one of the shipboard bars, or simply stand hand-in-hand, watching the ocean slip by from the solitude of your stateroom balcony.
Ah, the cruise life. Imagine a blissful week away from the daily stresses and drudgery, complete with a soak in the hot tub, leisurely dinners full of genteel conversation and some quiet reading -- or snoozing -- in the sun. That is, until a gang of rugrats swamps the hot tub, whines through dinner and comes careening around the sun deck, all high-pitched shrieks and spraying water.

Thankfully, a lot of cruise lines have adults-only areas where passengers can have some peace and quiet during the day while they rest up for a night of barhopping, casinos, or broadway-style entertainment. My children are grown and it is nice to be able to get away in an area that is exclusive for adults. Wonderful area for relaxing and reading, and it's adults only. Great food and service!
