What type room do you have booked..if you have a balcony you could surprise him with a dinner out on the balcony one night..a little pricey but I have heard it is welllll worth the money..I am sure some of the more experienced cruisers will have some good ideas though. good luck with it sue.

This one will cost you nothing, you'll just have to convince him to go along with it. After dinner, instead of going to the shows, etc. put on your bathing suits and go out and find an empty hot tub on deck. (they are usually open til 10 or 11) Climb in, enjoy the soak, the sea air, the stars, and the romance! Heavenly!

before you leave home select several small intimate clothing items that you know your husband enjoys seeing you in along with the perfume or fragrance your husband really likes when you wear it for him. Pack them in your bag along with some wrapping paper, tape and some large yellow post stickers so you dh doesn't notice them If you both have a favorite song(s) that you associate with romance download it on a cd.

Figure out which will be the "slowest" night of your cruise (maybe on a day when you are in port for a long period).. See if the maitre d' will prepare a small basket of appetizers and desserts and find the smallest not highly used lounge on the ship and explain to the bartender that you would like to have a small table in the corner for a romantic date and see if he can play the cd of your music Select the peak period when people are dining (thus the lounges will be less crowed), and when you are ready to go to dinner tell your dh to go ahead and you will join him shortly Pre arrange with your waiter (or maitre 'd) to give your husband a package that will have an article of your clothing that you have sprayed alittle perfume on with a yellow sticker that instructs your dh to go back to your cabin for further directions..leave another article of clothing with perfume on it on your bed and a note to go to the pursor's desk for his next instructions...etc...etc so that he winds up at the lounge and he must see the bartender who will tell him that where you are seated and will play your favorite song. He joins you at your table and you have a light dinner and you promise him dessert later on.

if that is not the type of romantic evening you were thinking about, write him a letter telling him all the reasons why you love him and read it to him on your balcony during a beautiful sunset

good luck and whatever you do I'm sure your dh will appreciate your love and effort

oops, I'm sorry, after I posted I noticed you didn't have a balcony and your MIL will be with you. Find a quiet corner on the deck and give your MIL some money so she can go the casino all evening (smile)

Another idea might be a "lotion massage". Pick a quiet afternoon or evening and give each other a massage using a nice lotion--like Victoria's Secret, or even Jergen's.Wear very little clothing, if any at all, and you be the one to give it to Hubby first.Have him lie on his stomach and then just start gently massaging in the lotion starting at the shoulders, down the arms, around the neck, and work your way down his back, all the way to his feet. Then have him turn over and start on the front. Better still, have him start giving you your back massage the same way--all the way down-with that nice,smooth lotion. By the time you both turn over, there might not be the need for the massage, as the romance will have sparked on the other side and "VOILA".. It would be nice to have some soft, special music==soothing music=== in the background. Good luck! Lynne

I wonder if you could get a table placed somewhere...well...interesting.....

Perhaps on some private part of the ship where folks don't usually go. You could have appetizers and maybe a bottle of your favorite.

I don't know how over the top you want to go. My fiance invited me to go on a cruise with him last summer with his family...12 of us in all. Needless to say, I was not expecting a whole lot of romance. We didn't even have our own cabin (with that many people, everyone has to share with someone else). One night we made reservations at the specialty restaurant for just the two of us. He had bought a present for me the day before and had arranged to have the waiter send it over during dinner. It was a cute statue of Minnie kissing sailor Mickey at it said "Cruisemates" (we were on a Disney cruise). Then he proposed. The present was because he didn't have a ring, ! But maybe you can send a present over to him during dinner if there's a night you eat w/o your MIL.

Andrea that must have been very romantic! Are you married yet?

I think I am leaning toward the Rasul treatment for couples. Maybe I can do a romantic dinner/lunch afterward I don't know. I will book this so my dh won't see it

I report back after the cruise!
