Romantic Dining on Cruise Ships

Busting free from the cliché of cruise ship dining

There's something about a romantic dinner that goes straight to the primitive, emotional part of the brain. Oysters spoon fed by your lover. A sip of red wine. A nibble of chocolate. It's the universal currency for lovers and tapping into its emotional power is a tango we all want to dance - over and over and over and over again.

But Princess, the love (lust) cruise line offers a unique dining option that busts open the cruise ship dining cliché.

Balcony dining, complete with French linens and private wait staff - just one of the dining options I plan to check out on my upcoming Caribbean Princess Cruise. Our cabin, on the stern of the ship, is protected from the wind and (apparently) serenaded by the wake of the waves - sounds like the perfect setting for a love-fest, don't you think?

And yes, I'm hoping our balcony dinner is the start of a beautiful tango - after we dismiss the wait staff, of course.

The Cruise Critic reminds us that The Love Boat, filmed aboard Princess Ships, still defines romance in this industry.
