Cunard’s Queen Elizabeth – Cunard Lines
We could not mention a romantic vacation cruise package and not mention the Queen Elizabeth, one of Cunard’s three ocean liners, is a chance to step back into the glamorous hey-day of cruising. Passengers can delight in the fabulously British touches of afternoon tea, a game of croquet and a formal royal ball. The Queen Elizabeth also has lots of modern features, including a state-of-the-art Computer Centre, relaxing whirlpools and karaoke, for some fun at night. Cunard Line is also known for its cuisine – we recommend the Lobster Newberg at the Queens Grille and the decadent Cambridge Burnt Cream Tart at the Britannia Restaurant. But her crowning feature is the transatlantic journeys that she does, if that doesn’t inspire the romantic in you, I don’t know what will!
Windstar Ships & Cruises
These small sailing “yachts” are a great choice for an amazing romantic cruise experience. Casual attire, single open seating and the best food and service at sea. The computerized sails gently move in the wind as the small size of the ship allows you to sail to some of the world’s most unique and remote ports.
