Updated: Oct 19, 2022

Watching the sun dip below the horizon on a luxury cruise ship makes any vacation romantic, wherever in the world you are, but some destinations add a little bit of extra spark and magic. Here is a list of our top five choices for the ultimate romantic cruise for you and your partner, including one that you may find quite surprising.


One of the most popular places to celebrate a wedding anniversary, enjoy a honeymoon, or simply treat one another to a memorable trip is the Mediterranean. Twenty-one countries have their coastline on the Mediterranean Sea, including Spain, Italy, France, Israel, Cyprus, Egypt, Morocco, and Tunisia. The allure of the history, culture, and diverse cuisine makes this a perfect choice for those wishing to enjoy a mix of adventure, relaxation, exploration, and romance. The sandy beaches are perfect for sunset strolls, and the excellent quality of local wines and food in these regions bring a magical, romantic feel to every day aboard a luxury cruise liner.


There are so many wondrous treasures here, including Bora Bora, Vanuatu, Papua New Guinea, and Fiji. The dazzling color of the ocean, stunning wildlife, and white sandy beaches entice couples seeking romantic moments. It’s an exotic paradise of nature, wildlife, and breath-taking landscapes, and cruise itineraries in this area are a carefully planned mix of adventure and relaxation. These idyllic island getaways are much less crowded than other locations, making it a perfect choice for those looking for something exceptional that’s away from the crowds.


The intoxicating laidback vibes of the Caribbean have been drawing amorous couples to its shores for years, and it’s no wonder that it is one of the most visited holiday hotspots for honeymooners and those celebrating anniversary milestones. The convenient location for Americans gives it even more appeal, and there are numerous luxury cruises to choose from, including Windstar and Star Clippers. Many select a small-size ship to truly capture that feeling of intimacy and personalized service. Whether you wish to have a few nights away or several weeks at sea, there is a large selection of cruise operators ready to whisk you away for a romance-filled vacation.


While the cold waters of the Antarctic Ocean may not be an obvious choice for a romantic getaway, the appeal of picturesque landscapes, blissful tranquillity, and incredible wildlife moves Antarctica to the top of the list for the more adventurous traveler. Small yet stylish cruise ships are perfect for navigating the chilly waters and allowing you to relax in your beautiful cabin at the end of a long, exhilarating day of touring and discovery. Whales, penguins, and seals are abundant here, and there is nothing better than observing them as you enjoy a glass of champagne and some fine dining. This is luxury at the highest level and is sure to be an unforgettable trip for you and your loved one.


Those seeking to create romantic memories or celebrate special occasions often take a lavish cruise along the Danube River to stop off at the many countries en route. This magnificent river begins in Germany and passes through such impressive countries as Austria, Croatia, Slovakia, Serbia, and Romania. The variety of landscapes, cuisine, wine, and architecture makes it a journey of discovery each day of the action-packed itineraries. River cruise cabins offer comfort, style, and privacy, while the evening entertainment provides ample opportunity for delicious food, a chilled glass of champagne as the sun sets, and the chance to dance the night away under the stars.
