Struggling to find your perfect couples’ cruise? Take inspiration from these five romantic cruise destinations.
Santorini, Barcelona and other jewels of the Mediterranean
What could be more idyllic than a cruise with the likes of Oceania and Silversea? Sail to the jewels of the Mediterranean, taking in the likes of Sorrento, Monte Carlo and Marseilles. An exciting mix of relaxation and exploration; depending on your package, you could visit volcanoes in Santorini and ancient ruins in Athens, admire art and architecture in Florence and glittering seas in Monte Carlo. Then, for the final flourish, how about a helicopter ride over Barcelona?
Lake Garda, Venice and the Adriatic
Luxury cruises are renowned for spoiling guests with pure indulgence; just what you need on honeymoon cruises or anniversary trips. Some of the best places to experience this impeccable service for yourself are Lake Garda, Venice and the Adriatic.
Many Finest Collection packages in this region include self-drive stretches through stunning scenery to start your journey by Lake Garda, home to some of the most picturesque backdrops in Italy. From there, you could take a dip in the thermal waters of Sirmione and arrive in Venice for your cruise. From here, the Adriatic is your oyster: Zadar, Dubrovnik, Montenegro and more.
Arabia and the Maldives
If you are craving sunshine and unique culture, start your romantic cruise in Dubai before heading to the Maldives. Arabia and the magnificent Maldives are all about luxury – why not try high tea in the Burj Al Arab hotel, or a champagne breakfast in a Maldivian lagoon?
Sailing with a range of luxury cruise lines like Regent Seven Seas and Seabourn, prepare to fall in love with swaying palm trees and dazzling white sand, gourmet dining and sophisticated entertainment.
Banff, Rocky Mountaineer, Vancouver and Alaska
A Finest Collection cruise package that combines a journey on-board the Rocky Mountaineer train with an unforgettable Alaska cruise may not be the most conventional couple’s destination, but it is one of the most romantic.
Prepare for adventure and unforgettable natural wonders as you travel from Jasper to Vancouver on the Rocky Mountaineer. Travelling in GoldLeaf service, you will soak up Canada’s soul-stirring landscape from a bi-level, glass-dome luxury coach while dining on gourmet meals created by Executive Chefs. And the natural wonders continue in Alaska, where there will be even more opportunity to spot brown bears, moose and majestic bald eagles on your cruise.
Antigua, Turks and more tropical treasures
The West Indies is the perfect place to fall even deeper in love with one another, surrounded by colourful villages, paradise beaches and luxurious hotel accommodation. From here, you can even take in the glamour of Miami, and the exotic treasures of Colombia, Panama, Costa Rica and more exotic lands crying out for exploration.
