Top Cruises for a Romantic Getaway

There are cruises for every type of holiday. Families can have the time of their lives aboard a fun-filled Caribbean cruise liner while culture hawks can explore the Mediterranean like never before.

Cruises are also an ideal way to holiday for couples looking for romance. With a little research, you’ll be able to find a large number of destinations, ships, and itineraries to suit you both.

Facing all these choices can be a bit baffling. Luckily, we’re here to help and have made a short list of what we think the best romantic cruises are. And you don’t necessarily need to worry about spending lots of your hard-earned cash – some of these are cheap cruises , meaning you won’t have to pay luxury prices just to spend some time away with your loved one.

Cruise to Italy on the Silver Spirit
The Silver Spirit is particularly well designed in that it’s ideal for couples; it’s not a massive ship that has thousands of people on it. Instead it’s a far smaller affair, hosting a mere 540 guests. There’ll be more than enough privacy for the two of you.

There’s also a good ratio between the crew and the passengers, with lots of intimate space and undivided attention and service from the crew. Every single cabin is a suite, too!

Sailing from Venice, the ship will call at several Italian destinations before heading towards Croatia.

Cruise from Barcelona to Rome aboard the Seven Seas Mariner
Another ship very deftly designed to accommodate couples, this ship is somewhat larger than the Silver Spirit. However, every single room is a suite, and the ship’s design utilizes the space it has in a very good way, allowing for a comfortable and atmospheric voyage.

The trip begins in Barcelona and continues to Marseilles in France, as well as Saint-Tropez. After a day in Monaco, you’ll continue to Portofino, followed by Florence, and finally, one of the most romantic cities of all – Rome.

Sail the Patagonian Passage West on the Seabourn Sojourn
Seabourn typically utilizes smaller vessels designed to carry around 450 passengers. The Sojourn, however, is a grander affair and is chock full of places to eat and to enjoy lavish entertainment. It is ideal for a luxurious, romantic getaway.

This particular cruise leaves from beautiful Buenos Aires, Argentina, arriving at Montevideo, Uruguay within a day. After a few days floating at sea, the ship will call at the Falkland Islands, Cape Horn, and Ushuaia, the world’s most southerly city, in magical Tierra del Fuego.

Afterwards, the ship will round Cape Horn, pass through Glacier Alley, the Cockburn Channel and the stunning scenery of Chilean Patagonia before finishing this epic, hauntingly beautiful journey in Valparaiso, one of South America’s most colorful corners.
