Choosing the Right Cruise: Young Couples

With so many cruise lines targeting their sailings towards families and mature travellers, it can sometimes be a challenge for younger, childless couples to find the right cruise package.

Considerations include the ship, cabin types, facilities, itineraries, price points and of course fellow passengers -- combined, it really is a lot to think about. To help, we've put together a short guide to advise younger couples on finding the best cruise for them -- be that something quite lively or a romantic adult-only escape.

Princess
Probably the most renowned for romance, Princess (the Love Boat line) is a great, affordable choice for loved-up couples. The ships feature a good amount of balconies and suites, nice speciality restaurants for romantic dinners and Movies Under the Stars. Princess also offers several engagement packages for anyone looking to pop the question.

P&O
The cruise line caters for youngsters on two counts. First, it runs several short cruises (some themed) intended for people looking for a party vibe. Second, it has three adult-only ships, perfect for couples looking to avoid gaggles of screaming kids.

Celebrity
Ideal for adult-friendly entertainment. Facilities include the Lawn Club, where guests can picnic or play croquet, adult-only solariums and a diverse mix of bars, including the Martini Bar and the outdoor Sunset Bar.

Paul Gauguin Cruises
For couples looking for luxury, Paul Gauguin is a fantastic choice, if a little on the pricey side. Venturing to tropical hotspots in the South Pacific and Southeast Asia (top destinations for young honeymooners), the ships boast fine-dining restaurants and offer private tours and butler service (for higher suite categories).

Costa
A good option for young couples new to cruising or working with a small budget. The ships have lots of lively bars, good quality food and a sociable European feel.
