A Chance for Romance 2

Getaways you’ll love

Busy schedules, kids, a tight budget and a variety of other reasons prevent many couples from slipping away on a romantic vacation. But when the opportunity does come around, getting it right is the way to create memorable moments that will last a lifetime.

River cruising in Europe

Cruising in Europe is said to be the fastest growing travel segment of all time. Exotic destinations, intimate settings, and smaller ships are some of the reasons why river cruising is so appealing to couples. The perfect antidote to our fast-paced world, river cruising is an opportunity to relax in the slow lane. As your ship sails quietly along, you’ll absorb the scenery, hop off to explore riverside towns and discover exciting new cultures, all in one vacation. There are a variety of ships to choose from; many have unique options like Avalon’s exclusive Panorama Suites. These suites offer exceptional accommodations with more space to stretch out, innovative room configurations to enhance every view, and a huge open-air balcony that provides an indoor/outdoor seating area without sacrificing valuable cabin space. From meandering through Europe to quiet moments in your cabin – river cruising is all about romance.

Fun in the Sun

Who can resist jetting off to the exotic Caribbean? Most islands are very easy to visit with short flights and generally only one connection. Crystal clear blue waters, expansive white sandy beaches, the calypso sounds of steel drums and the sincere hospitality of the locals make the Caribbean an exceptional choice. Stay in a villa or at an all-inclusive resort; the options are endless. Sandals and Couples Resorts tend to be the leaders in romantic vacations.

Sandals Resorts tout “The closer you look, the better we look.” Sandals has done an excellent job in enhancing every detail of its resorts, making it the leader in luxury-included romantic vacations. With more inclusions than any other resort, Sandals is geared for couples in love. Romantic fire pits, unique love-nest suites, offshore islands and gorgeous white sandy beaches can all be found at Sandals resorts in Jamaica, St. Lucia, Bahamas, Antigua, Grenada, and Barbados. Gourmet dining and a fine selection of Mondavi wines offer choices that will please any palette. Whether you’re planning a destination wedding, vow-renewal, romantic getaway or honeymoon, you just can’t go wrong with a Sandals Resort. Romance is what Sandals does best.

“No worries, mon” is the vibe and laid-back, simple ambience at any of the Couples Resorts in Ochos Rios and Negril, Jamaica. In fact, Couples Resorts is the only venue where a chief romance officer is on staff. A romance concierge will help you select from a menu of romantic indulgent experiences. Choose from a wide range of options like an intimate cruise for two or breakfast along the shore at sunrise. With a pleasing price, Couples Resorts is affordable for almost anyone.
