What’s the Most Romantic Luxury Cruise Ship?

Cast your votes! But as we ponder this question, two luxury cruise lines come to mind for top consideration in this category.

The first is Windstar Cruises, which offers three unique, motorized sailing ships of a small and intimate size. Then there’s the pampering service and exotic itineraries which make for ideal vacations for couples celebrating special occasions, or just a romantic getaway.

While Windstar had some financial troubles in recent years, and was sold, our cruise agency has stuck with the product and glad to see the new owners are investing in upgrading Windstar’s three ships. Windstar has remained one of the top rated cruise lines with the likes of Travel + Leisure, Conde Nast Traveler and other publications, as well as with our clients.

The second is Paul Gauguin Tahiti cruises. While Tahiti and French Polynesia as a cruise destination is hard to beat — it is, after all, one of the more romantic places on the planet to begin with — the service and ambience onboard the Paul Gauguin makes for a relaxed and romantic vacation that’s hard to beat. It’s one of the most relaxing cruises we’ve taken, and the cuisine and service onboard top rate.

It’s a perfect week’s vacation (though longer itineraries are also available.)
