Most Romantic Cruise Destinations Of 2016

Posted February 12th, 2016

A romantic getaway for two is the perfect way to rekindle the romance and love in your life, and an organised cruise is a great option for those who like to take it easy on the water. There are so many different cruises to choose from, each offering different benefits whether it’s a small boat for a more personal adventure or a large cruise ship with all the luxurious accommodations you could possibly imagine.

So consider where you want to visit; perhaps you want to skip around the Greek Islands, explore small canals and rivers through Europe, or experience the wonders of the glaciers in Alaska. A visit to your Cruiseabout consultant will help you decide what sort of cruise will suit you, but, before you go, here are a few travel tips of some romantic places to choose from.

South of France

A glass of wine, amazing cheese and a sunset over the Mediterranean - you can't get much more romantic than that. There is a range of cruise options that visit the coastal ports along the south of France. MSC Cruises offers a Mediterranean tour that includes stops in Italy, France, Spain and Malta. The seven-night trip includes a guided excursion into Marseille, France’s second-largest city, which includes a visit to the medieval city, Avignon. Or, skip the organised tour and plan a relaxing day at the beach.

French Polynesia

Tahiti, Moorea and Bora Bora islands are the perfect destination for your next vacation, offering breathtaking views while you enjoy the islands' traditions. Explore the enchanting islands of French Polynesia with Windstar Cruises, which prides itself on attentive service and luxurious accommodation, offering lavish small ships and majestic motor sail yachts.

Greek Islands

With crystal-blue waters and bright-white houses, the Greek islands are well known for its beauty. While cruising between the small islands, such as Santorini, Mykonos or Corfu, you can sample local produce, swim at secluded beaches, party away the nights, and learn about the amazing ancient history of Greece. You can choose to cruise on a larger ship or charter a personal boat with an onboard crew for an even more romantic getaway. Royal Caribbean International offers several cruises that stop here, including a seven-night Greece, Turkey and Croatia journey and a nine-night Greek Isles cruise.


Put on your lei and pack your bathers, cruising through the Hawaiian islands is relaxing and breathtakingly beautiful. Enjoy amazing seafood dinners and visit small, secluded beaches and forest areas, and feel like you’re on a deserted island. For more adventurous romantics, explore some of the volcanoes in the area, and hike through the lush tropical forests. Your travel agent can direct you toward a Hawaiian cruise that fits your budget.
