Cap Maison, St. Lucia - Celebrating its first anniversary in 2010, Cap Maison is quickly becoming the proposal capital of the world.

This winter season, the hotel introduced a Proposal Concierge, the ultimate partner in discretion, elegance and creativity, who works discretely behind the scenes to handle every detail and ensure that every answer is indeed a Yes! Recently, the Proposal Concierge orchestrated a private sail aboard Cap Maison's luxury yacht. As they plied the smooth waters off St. Lucia, the groom knelt under a full Caribbean moon with a diamond ring that the captain proffered with Champagne.

Lake Geneva Region, Switzerland - Chocolate and romance are as inseparable as Romeo and Juliet, except that you don't have to slip out at night to experience them. The Chocolate Train, a first-class only train on the Montreux-Oberland-Bernois Railway, is the perfect excursion for cocoa lovers who prefer their chocolate with a side of Swiss cheese and panoramic Alpine vistas. The train follows the lakeshore of Lac Léman -- a.k.a. Lake Geneva -- passing by steeped vineyards and villages en route to the Cailler-Nestlé chocolate factory, an ersatz factory experience that demonstrates the legendary story of Swiss chocolate making. The train stops at Gruyères, a mountain-top village and medieval castle, for tours and tastings of its famous namesake cheese. Passengers continue on to Broc where the factory is located and return non-stop to Montreux, bearing chocolate souvenirs, or the empty wrappings thereof. For more information, visit
