Marriage is often seen as a lifelong adventure shared by two people, and there is no better way to begin that journey than on an exciting cruise. Those looking to pop the question to their beloved can do so in a fun and memorable way by signing up for an engagement celebration package from Princess Cruises.
Preparations for your surprise proposal begin early in your trip, when you will have a secret session with the ship's videographer. This trained media professional will help you craft the perfect personalized message to your significant other. On the night of the big event, you will bring your loved one to your ship's Movies Under the Stars screen, where many of your fellow travelers will be gathering to watch a riveting film. Before the movie begins, however, your pre-taped proposal will be displayed - and hopefully your partner will say yes!
Once the surprise has been sprung, you and your new spouse-to-be will immediately be presented with a stunning red rose and two glasses of champagne. The celebration doesn't end there, however, as you will find a full bottle of champagne and a plate of decadent chocolate-covered strawberries in your stateroom later that night.
In addition to the events of the big night itself, your Engagement Under the Stars package includes plenty of other romantic activities and benefits you can share with your new fiancee. You can enjoy a scrumptious breakfast in bed, served by Princess Cruises' world-class staff. For another amazing culinary experience, you will receive a dinner for two at one of your ship's alternative meal venues, which provide passengers with a sophisticated change of pace from the standard dining room.
While you and your loved one will assuredly be excited about your new engagement, you may also want to have a chance to relax and unwind. The perfect way to do this is with a couple's massage at the Lotus Spa, a luxurious facility found on every one of Princess Cruises' ships. Additionally, just in case you left the engagement ring at home, you will receive a 10 percent discount on jewelry in every boutique on the ship.
Once your cruise is over, Princess will provide you with more than just a great story of how you got engaged. You will also receive an 8x10 photo taken at an engagement portrait session, four 8x6 candid pictures of the proposal itself and a $100 credit toward a wedding-at-sea package, in case you decide you want to celebrate your wedding with Princess as well.
