Set sail in a world that prioritises peace, relaxation and refined pleasures. Whether you’re seeking to connect with new people, share moments with a loved one, or simply luxuriate in some much-needed ‘me’ time, our adults-only cruises are your perfect escapeUnwind and savor the finer things in life with our great selection of adult-only cruises, a sanctuary for those in search of tranquility and premium experiences away from the hustle and bustle of family travel. Imagine floating on crystal-clear waters with a cocktail in hand, free from the sounds of energetic children and splashing pool games. Our cruises for adults offer gourmet dining experiences, high-end spas, and a myriad of entertainment options like comedy clubs, live music, and Broadway-style shows—all curated with a mature audience in mind. The attention to detail extends to exclusive shore excursions, giving you the opportunity to immerate yourself in the local culture or indulge in a romantic, moonlit beach dinner.


Choosing an adult-only cruise is opting for an elevated, worry-free travel experience that allows you to fully immerse yourself in each moment. Unlike traditional cruises where families and children add another layer of dynamics, adults-only cruises offer a setting where you can unwind without distraction. It’s the perfect opportunity for celebrating life’s milestones like anniversaries, honeymoons, or even “just because” moments that deserve an extraordinary backdrop. 


The allure of adult-only cruises is not only in the onboard experience but also in the exotic and often remote destinations they explore. From the captivating Mediterranean locales like Santorini and Barcelona to the idyllic beaches of the Caribbean, these cruises offer destinations that speak to the wanderlust in every adult. Journey up the stunning Alaskan coast, take a historic river cruise through Europe, or even traverse the Panama Canal. Some of these cruises even venture to less-traveled regions like the Arctic Circle or the Galápagos Islands, providing enriching experiences that cater to more mature tastes and interests.

P&O Cruises

The P&O Cruises Arcadia and Aurora are two ships that stand out for those seeking an exclusively adult experience. Both are committed to providing a luxurious and serene atmosphere, offering adult-only cruises that prioritize tranquillity, sophistication, and unparalleled service. Arcadia is renowned for its contemporary design and expansive spa, making it a haven for relaxation and rejuvenation. Meanwhile, the Aurora exudes a more traditional, British charm, complete with wooden deck games and an array of fine dining options. On both ships, you’ll find an array of amenities tailored for an adult clientele, including world-class spas, gourmet restaurants, and a wide range of entertainment—from black-tie galas to intimate jazz clubs. 

Virgin Voyages

Virgin Voyages has made waves in the cruise industry by launching a fleet exclusively for adults, aiming to redefine what cruising can be. Breaking away from the traditional cruise model, Virgin Voyages offers an experience that is hip, contemporary, and focused on sustainability. Onboard, you’ll find cutting-edge design, an eclectic range of dining options, and unique social spaces for mingling and entertainment. From immersive mixology classes to high-energy fitness sessions, the onboard activities are designed to cater to a lively, adult audience. 

Oceania Cruises

While Oceania Cruises is not specifically an adults-only cruise line, its ships offer an atmosphere that largely caters to a mature and sophisticated clientele. With a focus on luxury, fine dining, and immersive cultural experiences, Oceania tends to attract fewer families with children, making it a suitable choice for travelers seeking a quieter, more refined experience. The cruise line is renowned for its gourmet culinary programs, which often include cooking classes and exclusive dining experiences curated by master chefs. The onboard amenities, such as world-class spas, art collections, and libraries, also cater to adult sensibilities. The result is a cruising experience that, while not explicitly adults-only, offers a level of sophistication and tranquility that appeals to those looking for a more serene and enriching voyage.

Regent Seven Seas Cruises

Although Regent Seven Seas Cruises doesn’t exclusively offer adults-only cruises, its ships naturally attract a mature clientele through a focus on ultra-luxury, high-level service, and immersive experiences. Known for their all-inclusive offerings that cover everything from flights and transfers to fine dining and excursions, Regent Seven Seas creates an ambiance of exclusivity and refinement that is generally more appealing to adults. The cruise line prides itself on offering spacious suites, world-class cuisine, and an extensive selection of enrichment programs and lectures. Whether you’re interested in a culinary tour with a professional chef or prefer to engage in a history or art seminar, the options available are clearly geared towards a more discerning, adult audience.

Azamara Cruises

Azamara Cruises caters to the discerning adult traveler, prioritizing enriching experiences over family-oriented activities. While families are welcome, the lack of dedicated kids’ programs ensures a tranquil journey.
