Some destinations are so beautiful, so rich in history and architecture that they simply seduce on sight. Traveling to those places aboard a ship considerably bumps up the romance factor when paired with onboard experiences that are perfect for couples. Celebrity Cruises® sets the scene on this romantic cruise—from fresh sea air and moonlight sparkling on water to onboard features such as luxurious staterooms, stylish bars, intimate restaurants and a host of tantalizing extras. Three irresistible stops, each a UNESCO World Heritage site, on Celebrity’s “Adriatic & Italy Cruise” itinerary light the fires of love—the romantic cruise visits two legendary Italian cities, Naples and Venice, and Croatia’s stunning walled city, Dubrovnik.
It’s hard to believe anyone decided to build a city on islands in a lagoon. Yet we’re grateful they did. Thought to be the world’s most romantic city, Venice was for centuries a fabulously rich maritime power, with enough wealth to build dazzling palaces. Spare cash also went to pleasure, personified in the 18th century by the amorous adventures of Giacomo Casanova. Ever since, Venice has been a magnet for lovers. No wonder George and Amal Clooney chose to get married here.

What’s more romantic than making discoveries together? Jump on a vaporetto (a Venetian water taxi) and explore the city via the Grand Canal. Explore the labyrinth of charming streets and stop for an aperitivo and cicchetti, Venice’s version of tapas.
