Bear-n-Babe Posted August 9, 2013 #1 Share Posted August 9, 2013 Even though my wife and I have taken one cruise, I still feel I am a novice at this cruising. We took the kids (21 and 18) on a 3 day cruise last Christmas on the Carnival Sensation. It just happened to fit in the middle of a family Christmas get together close to Port Canaveral. My wife came off that cruise wanting to go on a longer (week long) cruise. I am now researching what would be the ideal cruise for just her and I. Kind of like doing a 2nd honeymoon. To date we are 24 years married, and we thought we could do a cruise in 2014 (April or May) for our 25th, but finances are going to most likely push this 2nd honeymoon cruise to 2015 (april or may). We are looking for a week long cruise. A ship bigger than the Sensation that we were on. I am not sure how BIG we want to go. We'd like to stick with the Caribbean/Mexico destinations. I do not like massive crowds. We like shows, pampering ourselves, and we are active, yet we enjoy our down time. We enjoy GOOD food. I enjoy trying new drinks and wines. The wife and I are in our early 50's. Fit and active (we run our own fitness and nutrition business). Maybe given what I just stated, taking a break from the vigorous exercise, with pampering and some lite exercise would be best. I want to make this romantic for my wife and I. Excursions would be light to moderate. Her and I did do a massage at the spa on our last cruise. I have been scanning through information on a few cruise lines and trying to come up with some ideas on Cruiseline and Ships and itineraries. We've been to Nassau. Baltimore is close home, but it appears that would limit my cruise selections. Destinations are not the big priority for us, but we are open to suggestions. Ship is something that I am looking hard at, because I want something that we would enjoy on sea days. We do spend a little time by the pool, but on our last cruise, I gravitated to the quieter parts of the ship, and on the Sensation took advantage of the Serenity deck to get away from the noise and yelling kids at the main pool. I enjoy my peace and quiet. So basically looking for suggestions for a romantic relaxing cruise for a couple in their 50's to get some pampering, and good food/drink.
