Is there anything better than lying on a sun lounger, basking in the warm and watching the world go by? We somehow think not and, we hope, that you agree too.
For us, a sunny time is more often than not a good time. And a warm day at sea is worth a lot more than one frankly wasted anywhere else. Bearing that in mind, we have rounded up three cruises below that are sure to put a smile on your face – and give you a decent tan.
Following on from the publication of Cruise Adviser’s Ex-UK 2015 guide, we would like to introduce our new weekly Three for Tuesday feature, which gives you three cruise options to choose from. This week it’s ex-UK trips for couples after a bit of sun.

This sailing with food-obsessed cruise line Oceania Cruises takes you right through some of Europe’s most romantic cities: from Bordeaux to Lisbon, Barcelona and Monte Carlo.

Line: Holland America Line
Departure port: Harwich
Departure date: May 4, 2015
Destination: Western Europe
Duration: 12 days
This 12-night roundtrip from Harwich is not just a great option for potential passengers who live on England’s east coast. It’s well worth travelling from further afield too.
Calling in at Cherbourg, La Coruna, Porto and Gibraltar before turning back and stopping at Seville and Lisbon on the return journey, this is a cruise that takes guests through some of the greatest wine country in the world. It would be rude not to have a glass or two along the way.
