Best Ship: Celebrity Solstice, Equinox,Eclipse, Silhouette and Reflection
Celebrity's newest ships are sophisticated and hip, and cater to couples on adult getaways, rather than families on holiday. Plus, there are plenty of onboard spaces tailor-made for parties of two -- from wine bars to multiple specialty dining venues, double pool loungers and top-deck picnics on a lawn.
Regent Seven Seas
Best Ships: Seven Seas Mariner and Voyager
You can't go wrong an all-suite, all-balcony ship that features personal service, gourmet cuisine and the most-inclusive cruise fares of the major luxury lines. You don't have to worry about lover's quarrels over the price of shore excursions, which pre-cruise hotel to book or how many drinks to order -- it's all covered by your cruise fare.
Best Ships: Crown Princess, Emerald Princess and Ruby Princess
Princess' newest ships -- Crown Princess, Emerald Princess and Ruby Princess -- blend big-ship options and small-ship cozy. Plus, romance has always been the Love Boat line's focus.
Best Ship: Crystal Serenity
In general, Crystal is the best choice for those who want big-ship features and small-ship luxury. In particular, while this newer ship offers many of the same features as Crystal Symphony does, the penthouse suites, the most romantic accommodations, are more plentiful.
Best Ship: Paul Gauguin
Designed, built and decorated to sail year-round in the romantic South Pacific, the cozy, 332-passenger Paul Gaugin offers an air of tropical festivity amid cultured surroundings. Dining is restaurant-style, the staff is superb, and the ship is highly inclusive (cocktails and other beverages are included in cruise fares). But it's the ship's remote and lush island destinations that really turn up the notch on the romantic nature of the trip.
Best Ship: Wind Surf
Wind Surf's both a sailboat and cruise ship, and it features a hybrid blend of cruise traditions (such as the crew show, organized shore excursions and multiple eateries) and utterly romantic vistas. Carrying just 312 passengers, the ship's onboard ambience is relaxed (no set seatings at dinner) and its itineraries focus on ports in the Mediterranean and Caribbean that are often too small to appeal to massive ships
Best Ship: Marina
Oceania's five ships — Marina, Riviera, Regatta, Nautica and Insignia — stand apart from other midsize cruise ships with their low 1-to-2 crew-to-passenger ratios, gourmet cuisine and comprehensive itineraries. Oceania sails around the world, with 2015 trips spanning Europe, Alaska, the Mediterranean, the Caribbean, South America and the South Pacific, among other places.
