Whether you’re planning a getaway with your partner for a special occasion or have been struck by the lightning bolt of spontaneity, a cruise can be one of the most romantic options when it comes to choosing a holiday. Selecting the right cruise, however, is not always such an easy task. If you’re looking for a cruise that oozes romance in 2013, these five cruise destinations will certainly float your boat.
The beaches of the Caribbean are some of the most truly breath-taking beaches in the world, making them an exquisite setting for a romantic getaway. While the western islands of the Caribbean hold their own appeal, the romance of the eastern Caribbean islands is unparalleled. The U.S. Virgin Islands, as well as Antigua and St. Kitts, offer a more isolated location for couples looking for some alone time, set against the backdrop of some the world’s most gorgeous beaches.
If you’re looking for an enchanting location to really make your trip one to remember, consider including a visit to Magens Bay, a bay on the island of St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands. Its white beaches and turquoise water, flanked by tropical forests, will provide you with the ultimate backdrop for a sunset that neither you nor your partner will ever forget.
The Mediterranean is a classic if you’re looking for a romantic cruise destination. It offers variety that very few other >cruise deals can hope to compete with. There are very few places on earth that can rival the romance of taking a ride on a gondola along the canals of Venice, while the narrow maze of streets in Dubrovnik, on the coast of Croatia, offers lovers the opportunity to get lost in the beauty of a medieval townscape. Mediterranean cruises may have been around for decades, but their popularity continues to be warranted, especially if creating an air of romance is your aim.
French Polynesia may be one of the pricier options on our list of cruise destinations, but the seclusion offered by some 118 islands makes it one of the most romantic and spectacular. Crystal clear water, isolated beaches and lagoons make Tahiti, Moorea and Bora Bora some of the most attractive islands in French Polynesia for lovers looking for somewhere special to spend a romantic holiday.
Delicious seafood, bright white beaches and enchanting Hawaiian culture make Hawaii a magnetic cruise destination for the hopeless romantics amongst you. With an emphasis on relaxation, these volcanic islands, sweeping forests and secluded beaches offer lovers the opportunity to escape and truly enjoy each other’s company.
Greek culture is intertwined with romance, so a cruise around the Greek Islands is the perfect getaway for love-struck couples. Cruising around islands such as Santorini, Mykonos and Corfu, couples can enjoy fantastic food, made from locally grown ingredients, swim at secluded beaches, immerse themselves in ancient Greek culture and enjoy a few glasses of wine in one of the many romantic cities along the way.
