Who says a romantic getaway has to be a beach vacation? Grab a hot cup of kokekaffe, wrap yourself in a woolen røros blanket, and snuggle up with your other half on a breathtaking voyage through the rolling green hills, sparkling crystalline glaciers, and vibrant, historic cities of beautiful Norway.

Toast to the land of the midnight sun over a bottle of bubbly on your stateroom's private veranda. Onshore, spend a morning in picturesque Alesund exploring the Sunnmøre Museum, an open-air exhibition of Norwegian coastal culture, then drive up to Mount Aksla for postcard-perfect views of the town below. Or cozy up together at a cafe on the shores of Lake Loen, surrounded by towering peaks, turquoise waters, and plunging mountain valleys.

Historic half timbered buildings in the beautiful town of Honfleur, France

The Champs-Élysées, the Eiffel Tower, the dreamy banks of the Seine at twilight — when it comes to romance, few places hold a candle to the City of Light. The captivating museums, charming restaurants, and breathtaking architecture of Paris offer the perfect backdrop for a romantic adventure. But France has so much more to offer lovers beyond its most famous city.

Get a taste of what it’s like to live la vie en rose with an exclusive wine tasting in the rolling vineyards of Bordeaux. Or embark on a journey back through the ages on a guided walking tour through the cobblestone streets of Honfleur. If this seaside town feels familiar, it’s for a good reason — the iconic architectural style here was immortalized in the works of Monet. And for an authentic sense of wonder, visit the magnificent Mont-Saint-Michel. This towering medieval abbey on the Normandy coast appears like a floating city at high tide.
