Whether your idea of the perfect romantic getaway consists of embarking on new adventures together, sipping a sundowner or relaxing with a couple’s massage, you can experience all that and more with a cruise holiday.
Not only are today’s cruise ships the perfect base for a romantic holiday, with spacious accommodation options and sumptuous restaurants ideal for celebrating a honeymoon or anniversary, but there are endless opportunities for couples to rekindle romance at some of the world’s most beautiful ports.
We’ve made a list of romantic cruises for couples, so you can start planning your next adventure together!
There’s no setting more romantic than the Bahamas. After all, what could beat strolling along the golden sands of Nassau and Cococay hand in hand, as the sun sets over the horizon? You’ll be able to set sail with Royal Caribbean, enjoying all the benefits their Enchantment of the Seas liner has to offer, including a luxury spa and adults-only solarium.
Your journey will begin with a flight to Miami, giving you the opportunity to explore this bustling city, renowned for its cool beaches and party atmosphere. Then it’s onto the Bahamas, where you can spend your time soaking up the sun on one of its beautiful beaches, going on a joint diving expedition or making new friends at Ardastra Gardens, Zoo and Conservation Centre.
For the perfect accommodation on your Bahamas Cruise, the Enchantment of the Seas boasts plush suites which feature living and dining areas and a large balcony for you to enjoy the views from.
If you fancy sticking closer to home but still want to enjoy all the benefits a cruise has to offer, head to the Mediterranean with Norwegian Cruise Line.
Hop aboard Norwegian’s Spirit cruise liner, which will take you to Dubrovnik, Greece, Italy, France and Spain. With such an eclectic mix of locations, every couple is bound to find something they love, whether it be exploring the old ruins of Athens, tucking into authentic Italian cuisine or sunning themselves in beautiful Barcelona.
When it comes to accommodation onboard the Spirit, you can’t go wrong with their balcony staterooms, where you’ll be able to begin and end each day looking out to sea. Or, for an added touch of romance (and luxury!), the Spirit’s suites are both vast and stately, whilst still retaining an atmosphere of intimacy.
For a truly unique couple’s holiday, we can’t think of anything more wonderful than a cruise to Alaska. Not only will you be able to survey snow-capped mountains and astonishing glaciers, you’ll also have the chance to spot some rare wildlife in their natural habitat, such as humpback whales, seals and brown bears.
Sail to Alaska on Celebrity Cruise’s Infinity ship, a hub of entertainment and comfort. With several restaurants to choose from, an exclusive lounge and rejuvenating spa, you and your loved one won’t run out of things to do together.
Stay in one of Infinity’s spacious staterooms (with a concierge service available as an added extra) or treat yourself to a stay in one of the ship’s expansive and modern suites.
