Couples Romantic Cruises

Whether you are celebrating Valentine's Day or an anniversary, proposing marriage or just simply spending quality time with your loved one...sailings onboard couples romantic cruises allow you the opportunity to tailor your special journey to be just how you want it.

Cruise holidays have long been synonymous with relaxation, comfort and luxury. Few can fault the experience of sailing along the coast of Caribbean islands whilst sipping on fine cocktails and soaking up amazing views. Cruises provide so many perfect moments, each one more breathtaking than the last. It is no wonder then why boarding a romantic couples cruise with a loved one is one of the most romantic experiences available on the planet. These romantic cruises can be the perfect way to begin a relationship, reiterate your commitment to your partner, or rekindle the spark that first drew you together. This is your chance to have a unique, unforgettable journey and turn the dream of sailing into the sunset with your loved one a reality. What's more, couples can enjoy adults-only cruises, ensuring the experience is peaceful, quiet and relaxing. Take a look at the best cruise lines for adults.

It's also reassuring to know that the world of cruising is an inclusive and diverse space, with many cruise lines providing exclusive events, activities and excursions for gay couples to mingle with other LGBT guests. These events can take place in the form of anything from glitzy cocktail parties to fun film nights, however, no matter whether you and your partner decide to meet up with newfound friends or indulge in peace and quiet, a gay cruise is a great chance to get away and unwind. Check out our list of the best cruise lines for gay cruises.

The Experience

During a couples cruise holiday you and your partner will experience two of the greatest 21st century luxuries…time and space. Time to share with each other and space filled with everything you need to help melt the cares of the world away as you relax. Of course, all of the luxuries of modern cruising will be at your fingertips as you continue your romance or embark on the rest of your lives together. Many cruise lines offer packages that cater for romantic holidays and glorious wedding ceremonies alike and include everything a couple would want. Fine flowers, keepsakes, photography and wedding planners are all presented in packages designed to serve and satisfy. The experience is aimed at making sure a couples cruise runs smoothly, is set in amazing surroundings and gives plenty of time to be in each others company.

Beautiful Destinations

Caribbean cruises offer the chance to watch the sunset from white sand beaches or alternatively Mediterranean cruises provide endless opportunities to tick off once in a lifetime adventures with your loved one. Why settle for one or the other? Why not have both? An innate feature of every cruise holiday are the amazing views offered by the changing scenery whilst on the move. With a couples cruise, you can take in many of the world’s beautiful destinations in a single trip. The stunning hues during a Mediterranean sunset onboard Queen Victoria or the breathtaking majesty of the glaciers of Alaska with Celebrity Cruises' Infinity; all of these magnificent backdrops are all afforded to you on your perfect couples cruise. Cruising gives you a special honour of moving from one dream to another.


Cruise lines offer a range of romantic packages that aim to help you on the way to creating the ideal proposal setting, renewing your vows or giving you that perfect moment in which to lovingly utter…‘I do’. A marriage ceremony is the most romantic occasion for any couple and is an experience that is steeped in tradition, luxury and splendour. Months, even years of planning come together on this special day so why not make this perfect moment with your loved one the best it can be? The packages are very diverse and allow you to customise your day to suit. Princess Cruises offer the choice of conducting the ceremony at sea, at a port of call or a picturesque ceremony conducted harbour side, giving your friends and family a chance to wave goodbye as you set sail on your honeymoon cruise. Royal Caribbean also offer beautiful wedding experiences as well as romantic cruises for those wanting to whisk loved ones away, offering a great service which allows you to pick and choose features to tailor make your perfect love-filled journey. In addition to offering perfect proposal packages designed to 'woo' or those to celebrate anniversaries, cruise lines also offer couples the pleasure of being able to renew their vows whilst onboard. Whether you’re celebrating your Paper Anniversary or your Golden Anniversary these vow ceremonies are the ideal way to re-affirm your commitment and tell that special person just how much you appreciate them.

What our customers say

"I booked a Fred Olsen cruise with IGLU last month and was so impressed by the service I received. The staff member I spoke to was Kimberley and she was exemplary. Capable, kind, professional, patient, friendly and knowledgeable. She went through every step of the way calmly and thoroughly. IGLU were recommended to me by friends and I have no hesitation in passing the recommendation along. Well done IGLU and thank you. "

"So easy to deal with, I studied the Cruise I wanted, did my research with different company's and returned to Iglu. I had three quotes matching Iglu’s cost, but with one phone call they beat the price themselves by £40 without me even asking, how easy was that! "
