ROMANTIC ACTIVITIES ON A MEDITERRANEAN CRUISE
FEBRUARY 15, 2015
The Mediterranean is made for romance. With quaint villages, gorgeous natural scenery, and good wine and good food, it provides an ideal backdrop for couples to have some quality time together that is both fun and memorable. A Mediterranean cruise also provides opportunities for romance while onboard.
Romance in Port
Up the special factor of a day in the Mediterranean by going on a romantic shore excursion while in port.
Santorini Wine and Exploration
On the Pyrgos Village with Mezes and Wine Tasting Tour in Santorini, you’ll be whisked away to a beautiful winery where you’ll sample some of Santorini’s exquisite wines. Afterward, you’ll visit the remains of a Venetian fortress and then go to the main town of Fira for some free time to wander its pretty cobblestoned streets and do shopping, or you and your honey can sneak into a caldera-view restaurant to enjoy another glass of wine and some Greek appetizers.
Villages of Provence
While in port in Cannes, France, skip the bustling streets of Monte Carlo, which most day trippers visit, and instead head to the lovely countryside of Provence on the Villages of Provence: Fayence and Seillans shore excursion. You’ll explore the historical and modern sites of each village. Fayence is especially known for the Saracen Door and town walls that date back to the 13th century. Seillans is considered one of the most beautiful villages in all of France and you’ll be taken through its quaint streets that exude romance — the perfect spot for a hand in hand stroll.
Back on the ship, treat yourself and your honey to dining in one of Celebrity Cruises’ specialty onboard restaurants. If sailing on one of the Solstice Class ships (the Celebrity Equinox, Celebrity Silhouette, and Celebrity Reflection sail Mediterranean itineraries in 2015), you can order a picnic lunch and enjoy it on the Lawn Club, a real grass area on the top deck of the ship.
