Luxury cruises

Jane's verdict:

Sleeping under the stars in Balinese Dream Beds on a luxury cruise ship more akin to a private yacht, visiting a new destination every day and toasting one another on your cabin balcony with a cocktail as your cruise ship pulls out of port. These are just some of the romantic highs on a luxury cruise honeymoon.

The Luxury Cruise Company says

Our experts have picked the very best cruises for honeymoon couples – each cruise line and vessel selected for special features that spell romance on the high seas.

  • Exclusive offers
  • Intimate ships
  • Relaxed dress code

SeaDream Yacht Club offers an intimate style of cruising, more akin to being on board a luxury yacht. With a maximum of 112 guests and 95 staff members, both SeaDream I and SeaDream II offer an enviable 1:1 staff to guest ratio. There’s no formal dress code, open seating dining and all meals, drinks and some water sports from the ship’s own marina are included in the price. Choose from the Caribbean in the winter months, where special touches include a stylish Champagne beach barbecue, and the Mediterranean in the summer.

We especially love the option to sleep under the stars on the ship’s Balinese Dream Beds – with superb cuisine and service too, it’s five-star heaven all the way.

Regent Seven Seas Cruises are fully all-inclusive with tours included as well as drinks and gratuities. All accommodation is in suites and 97% of them have a private balcony – perfect for that intimate sundowner cocktail together. Spa junkies will bliss out in the Canyon Ranch Spa Club on board and there’s a choice of four gourmet restaurants.

With a fleet of small, intimate ships that carry from 208 up to 450 guests, Seabourn is all about all-inclusive luxury and all their suites have a private balcony. There’s a wide choice of dining venues and it’s our top recommendation for an elegant, quality cruise experience.

Silversea Cruises include everything you could possibly imagine on an ultra-luxury cruise, including an almost 1-to-1 crew-to-passenger ratio, a wealth of amenities and all-inclusive exclusivity. Because of their small size, each ship is able to visit destinations otherwise unreachable.

We frequently negotiate special offers on our pick of the cruise companies and all our customers enjoy complimentary airport lounge passes, a one-year Priority Pass membership and a unique gift in your cabin.
