This entry is from our Expert Guest series where wedding and honeymoon professionals share their best tips on creating memories that last a lifetime. We want to thank our friends at Princess Cruises for sharing their destination expertise!
Considering a cruise-based honeymoon? We love it! Cruises offer so many different experiences to fill your honeymoon memory chest. From exploring multiple destinations to taking in a sunset from your cabin balcony – dancing the night away in a swanky lounge or enjoying an intimate meal and conversation in an elegant restaurant – cruises are chock full of fun and adventure.
One of our favorite carriers for romance is Princess. While on board, a Princess cruise will cater to your romantic side with private dining on your balcony – a relaxing breakfast for two or a romantic sunset dinner – honeymoon packages for newlyweds, flowers and chocolates delivered to your room and couples-only massages in the Sanctuary. Your favorite moment with your soulmate could be anything – or everything. This might be why Princess was named the “Best Cruise Line for Romance.”
So now you just have to decide where to cruise! To help you, we asked Princess to share their take on the top romantic cruise destinations.
Turquoise waters, swaying palms, secluded white-sand beaches – it’s all complete bliss in the Caribbean. It’s no wonder it’s one of the top destinations for weddings, honeymooners and couples just craving an escape. With over 30 island ports to choose from, the two of you can sightsee, snorkel, and shop. Or, just lounge side-by-side catching some sun because sometimes the most romantic thing you can do together is nothing at all. The Caribbean is loaded with something for everyone – enjoy shore excursions like swimming with stingrays in Grand Cayman, traveling through dense jungles to hidden Mayan ruins on Cozumel, snorkeling the world’s second largest barrier reef in Belize or sailing on a thrilling catamaran in Antigua. Heat things up on a Caribbean Romantic Cruise.
Enjoy timeless places and priceless moments when you cruise the Mediterranean. Swimming Corfu’s sparkling waters; cozied up in a Venetian gondola; people-watching in a Paris café; biking the Tuscan hills; and strolling the streets of Rome. Let the destination experts take you to these enchanting settings. Their award-winning Mediterranean cruise shore excursions bring you to iconic beaches, landmarks and ancient artifacts. See the yacht-lined shores of Kotor while riding on a tuk tuk, an electric rickshaw. Savor the flavors of “Koum Kouat” liqueur, created from Corfu’s exclusive citrus plant. Or stroll along the streets of Dubrovnik’s Old town, one of the most well-preserved medieval cities in the world. You two can take it from there. When you share the world with the one you love, you create memories to share forever. Plan your epic Mediterranean Voyage.

And let’s not forget endless ocean views. Plus it’s all included in your cruise fare!
