Cruising is an excellent way to spend your honeymoon. After the whirlwind craziness most couples experience while planning a wedding, a cruise ship lets you simply relax and be pampered while seeing new places. Here are 10 best cruise ships to consider for your honeymoon:
Celebrity Solstice: This ship has the Lawn Club deck, which has real grass that you can lounge on together while enjoying a glass of champagne or a picnic. For a pampered trip, stay in one of the AquaClass Suites, which gives you access to the AquaSpa facilities onboard.
Royal Princess: You felt like a princess (or a prince) on your wedding day and continue that royal feeling on Princess Cruises' newest ship, which was even christened by the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton. You'll find cabanas in the adults-only Sanctuary and an elaborate atrium with many restaurants and bars.
Oasis of the Seas: Royal Caribbean's "world's largest cruise ship" may not seem like the ideal location for an intimate vacation at first glance, however there are pockets of the ship that are perfect for romance. Stroll through the Central Park neighborhood, which is full of foliage and sophisticated restaurants and bars. Then, build fun memories together ziplining over the ship or rock climbing onboard.
Oceania Riviera: Luxury and wine lovers, this is an excellent honeymoon option for you. The elegant Riviera by Oceania Cruises features luxurious lounges, 5-star restaurants, and comfortable staterooms. Riviera also has a stellar wine list, which is highlighted at dinners in the exclusive Le Reserve by Wine Spectator restaurant.
River Beatrice: Looking for a unique, boutique-style honeymoon? The River Beatrice by Uniworld Boutique River Cruise Collection sails the Danube River in Europe and each of its staterooms and suites are decorated differently with the same sumptuous materials and amenities used in 5-star hotels.
Norwegian Epic: For a honeymoon with an array of entertainment options, plus an exclusive vibe, consider the Haven Suites onboard the Caribbean-sailing Norwegian Epic. The Haven Suites feature private pools and restaurants only accessible by Haven guests, and each suite comes with a butler. You'll also have access to all the Vegas-style entertainment on the rest of the ship.
MSC Yacht Club on MSC Fantasia: Those looking for a small-ship feel with large cruise-ship amenities in Europe should check out the MSC Fantasia from Italian-based cruise line MSC Cruises; stay in the exclusive MSC Yacht Club onboard. You can revel in the guest-only areas of the MSC Yacht Club, or check out the rest of the ship.
Paul Gauguin: Luxury cruise line Paul Gaugin's namesake ship is ideal for couples who think "exotic island getaway" when daydreaming about their honeymoon. The Paul Gaugin sails around Tahiti and French Polynesia, with stops at private islands and plenty of time to swim in the region's calm, turquoise waters.
Azamara Journey: If a cruise honeymoon to you means seeing new places together, Azamara Club Cruises' Azamara Journey is an excellent option. Sailing around the Mediterranean, most Azamara Journey itineraries include a couple of overnight stays in port, giving you more time to explore.
Silver Explorer: Embark on a honeymoon like no other on the Silver Explorer, Silversea Cruises' expedition ship which sails to Antarctica. Cuddle up with your honey while watching penguins and whales frolic amid the ice and snow.
From tropical islands and icebergs to spa treatments and sport activities, you can find an ideal cruise ship for you and your beloved no matter your interests.
