Romantic foodies rejoice. With Saturday being Valentine’s Day, and the South Beach Food & Wine Festival opening just five days later on the 19th, what better excuse do you have to sweep your partner off their feet with savory sensations and sweet treats? After all, many of us can agree that the best way to capture someone’s heart is through their stomachs.
Here at Celebrity Cruises®, we couldn’t agree more. We know just how exciting this time of year can be, which is why we make it our goal to offer an array of intimate and romantic shore excursions that cater to lovebirds everywhere. If you’ve got a Celebrity cruise planned for this week, then get ready to wine and dine your significant other with these special romance-inspired destination experiences:
Luxurious Beach & Spa Retreat in the Caribbean
If you’re heading to the Caribbean on a Celebrity cruise and are looking for the ultimate romantic escape, look no further than our Celebrity Exclusive: Jade Mountain Beach and Spa Day. This one-of-a-kind experience combines the beautiful tropical scenery of St. Lucia with the serenity of a 5-star resort. Your day will begin when you are met at the dock by your own privately driven car, which will whisk you away to the island’s more secluded west coast to bask in pure paradise at the Jade Mountain, revered as a Travel + Leisure’s “World’s Best” resort. Here, your very own private beach cabana awaits. Spend the day enjoying a refreshing swim in the crystal clear waters, sunbathing, or savoring the sights, before indulging in an al fresco lunch, featuring a variety of island delicacies. And if that wasn’t romantic enough, your day concludes with a world-class spa treatment at the beachside Kai en Ciel Spa. Cupid himself couldn’t do it better.
Create Your Own Experience with a Private JourneySM
Now, if you’re looking for a truly spectacular way to romance your significant other this Valentine’s Day, a Private Journey is the perfect choice. Private Journeys are special shore excursions that you can fully customize, with the help of Celebrity staff and the Destination Concierge, allowing you to craft your own unique romantic experience, tailored to suit your desires. Whether you choose to experience one of our existing shore excursions in a private vehicle, or go all out and plan a completely new adventure, the Celebrity Cruises Private Journeys option provides you with the ability to vacation your way.
Want to drive a Ferrari ride across the winding thoroughfares of the Côte d’Azur, followed by a picnic on the beach with champagne and chocolate-covered strawberries? No problem. Have your heart set on a candlelit dinner in Venice complete with a 5-string quartet, followed by private gondola ride, and topped with a magical proposal in the middle of Mark’s Square? We can make it happen. The options are virtually limitless, ensuring you enjoy an unforgettable romantic moment with your loved one that’s fit for the history books.
So whether you’re celebrating your 50th Valentine’s Day together, or the first of many more to come, a romantic shore excursion on a Celebrity Cruises vacation is the perfect way to set sparks flying.
