Did you know August is the official month of Romance Awareness? Princess Cruises did, as well they should after serving as set and co-star of The Love Boat for 14 years. The luxury cruise line offers a myriad of ways, year-round, to enjoy a couple’s retreat, but the added interest in the Caribbean for destination weddings inspired a wedding-ready tool for newlyweds and wedding planners.


Princess Cruises has a history in romance as the first cruise line to host weddings at sea, as well as assisting couples plan, register and enjoy honeymoons onboard. Continuing to spread the love through the apparent month of romance, Princess Cruises offers a Honeymoon Gift Registry App and online Wedding Planner.


Couples planning a special event, Princess Cruises offers the option to create their own honeymoon website with the Honeymoon Gift Registry App.


Opt for a wedding on a cruise ship and consider the bulk of the planning done for you, especially with the Wedding Planner online program. Guests can plan everything from the wedding package to their honeymoon, all on the app or computer.


Destination weddings can seem like a lot of hassle and planning, but with Princess Cruise’s wedding and party-planning tools guests can RSVP, upload photos, gift registry items and enjoy a personalized experience through the cruise line’s Celebrations program.


Not planning a wedding, but still want to celebrate your relationship? Get away with your significant other to a honeymoon-worthy destination, for any occasion: Thailand. The trendy tourist destination offers everything from secluded beaches and high-end resorts to rustic local experiences and incredible cuisine. It’s a win-win, no matter the occasion.


Make the trip stand out from your typical couple’s trip and check in with the Four Seasons Chiang Mai Resort. The Four Seasons Chiang Mai location sees enough celebratory, luxury travelers pass through to know each stay should be customized and unique. The Four Seasons offers signature resort activities depending on the couple’s interests, including spa treatments, cooking classes and biking through breathtaking trails.

Head off the resort for some culture and adventure and book a hot air balloon ride over the diverse terrain of Chiang Mai. Venture out for tea plantation tours or plan a visit to Atop Doi Inthanon National Park’s waterfalls. Visit the elephant nature park, local villages and nearby rice plantations for a completely unique and unforgettable honeymoon.


Stay in rustic elegance at the Four Seasons Tented Camp in the historic Golden Triangle region in Northern Thailand. Couples can escape from reality with an incredible stay including unique three- or four-night excursions. Take a few days to travel through bamboo jungles and visit rescued elephants. Interact with elephants in their habitats and spend the night in luxury tents complete with hot tubs, showers, plush beds and amenities.


The focus on relaxation and well-being behind every resort’s design allows honeymooners to easily move at their own pace. Relax and enjoy the surroundings or head out on an expertly led rainforest hike, kayaking trip, elephant ride or temple tour. The opportunities are endless.


While technically the month for romance is coming to an end, Valentine’s Day is around the corner and it can’t hurt to plan early.
