Romance is heightened on a cruise. Perhaps it has something to do with gliding over the turquoise waters. Or is it the awe-inspiring starry nights?
Perchance it's the way moonbeams bounce upon the waves?
Maybe it's more scientific than that and it's the positive ions released by the oceans? Whatever the reason, romance is palpable onboard and that is why proposals, engagement parties, showers, weddings, honeymoons and anniversaries are especially memorable when celebrated on a cruise.
