If you’re looking to whisk your loved one away on a romantic getaway, check out our list of the best cruise destinations in this blog. From breathtakingly scenic routes along the coast to luxurious and intimate sailings through picturesque islands, there’s something for every couple at these popular cruise destinations.
From the beautiful Mediterranean to the sunny beaches of Mexico, these cruise destinations will leave you with memories that will last a lifetime. So, if you and your loved one are looking for an unforgettable experience, consider planning a trip to one of these spots:
From the moment you arrive at the Amalfi Coast, you’ll be mesmerised by the spectacular scenery, with the azure waters of the Mediterranean Sea, breathtaking cliffs, and quaint pastel villages of Amalfi, Positano and Sorrento. Break a sweat with a hike up Mount Vesuvius, wander through the ancient city of Pompeii, or simply soak up the atmosphere with a glass of fresh limoncello made from the huge local lemons. End the day with a bowl of spaghetti alle vongole, topped with clams, tomatoes and herbs, as the sun goes down.
Located on the east coast of Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula, the Riviera Maya stretches from Cancun to Tulum and is home to some of the most blissful beaches in the world. Explore Mayan archaeological sites, including the famous Chichen Itza, snorkel over the Mesoamerican Reef — the second largest in the world, at almost 700 miles — or go cave diving in the thousands of cenotes in the region. Once you’re done exploring, hit the local towns and bars for salsa dancing, live jazz, and plenty of wine from the Baja region.
One of the most sought-after and popular cruise destinations in the world, Bora Bora is known for its turquoise waters, white-sand beaches and lush jungle vegetation. Hike up Mount Otemanu, the island’s tallest mountain, and enjoy breathtaking views of the sweeping coastline — or if that seems too much like hard work, take a helicopter tour of the island for a bird’s eye view of the island’s reefs and secluded beaches. Be sure to head to the Mahana Point lookout for sunset and toast your love with a cocktail or two.
There’s no shortage of things to do in Maui, Hawaii’s second-largest island. After you’ve soaked up the sunrise 10,000 feet above sea level at Mt. Haleakala’s summit, take a horse-riding tour across its beautiful beaches, bike through its lush rainforests, or drive along the famous Road to Hana. With its gorgeous ocean views and waterfalls, it’s the perfect place to enjoy some quality time with your special someone. And, of course, no trip to Maui would be complete without enjoying a traditional Hawaiian luau.
There’s nowhere quite like Alaska when it comes to scenic cruise destinations. Whether you want to go whale watching, dog sledding, or simply wander through pristine forests, you’ll be enchanted by the sheer beauty of this state. Drive down the Seward Highway, which winds its way along the coast, offering mountain views. Sail through Glacier Bay National Park, where you can see some of the largest glaciers in North America up close. And after a long day of exploring, unwind with a couple’s massage.
