This is the perfect surprise for someone or a way to celebrate an anniversary without breaking the bank. There are even special decorations and accommodations to help you celebrate your romantic cruise time away. If your relationship is just blossoming a short cruise helps you shrug out of daily stress and really focus on each other. The pools, casinos, games and events of the ship are the perfect backdrop to explore your connection and a short cruise means that it will likely be easier to schedule and plan your trip. A two night cruise could be a perfect test run for that romantic honeymoon cruise you’ve been eyeing.

Having the option to take off for a four-day weekend getaway aboard a ship is a great thing. Sailing from Thursday to Monday makes it possible to make the work week go really quickly, at half-length.

Develop a new interest together while you watch glaciers, learn to dance onboard or enjoy hundreds of activities on the many decks and levels.


Most cruise lines offer special one day cruises and great getaway specials on weekend days. Several cruises are carefully created for short cruises on major holidays. One day cruises can actually be longer.

You might set sail on the first day, stay overnight at a destination and return the next day.

You can pick any day, though weekends are the busiest of course.

If short time limits are holding you back then you can now dream big. One day couples cruises and carefully selected excursions can satisfy your need to get away for a day and still not use up precious vacation days.
