Whether you’re looking for a romantic break for two or simply a chance to relax and unwind, an adult-only cruise is the perfect getaway for grown-ups. With no children on board, an Adult Only cruise means passengers can truly kick back with no distractions and no worries. These adult cruises are filled with fun and fantastic conversation as well as much-deserved time away from the children’s routine.

Of course, these cruises aren’t just aimed at parents, but all who are looking for a quieter escape. Adult Only voyages not only guarantee a peaceful holiday on the seas, but also offer stylish surroundings with facilities and activities specifically catered towards adults. And with itineraries covering mini-breaks in Northern Europe to sunny sailings in the Med, there’s bound to be a cruise to suit you.


Travel truly is the food of the soul. Cruises are the complete embodiment of this, enabling you to actually explore the corners of the world. Instead of simply staying put for two weeks, you get to enjoy the sun from a variety of exciting destinations. The world's wonders await and with so many ports and flights to choose from, these exciting adventures have never been easier.

One of the most popular cruising areas is of course, Europe. Although with so much of this continent to travel, there are many routes to pick from, all of course accompanied by the gentle sea breeze. Whether you are looking for a Balearic island getaway or even towards mainland Europe, the Mediterranean has many gems to offer.

Adult Only cruises stretch far beyond Europe, now sailing through the waterways of the world's furthest corners. Discover the culture and history of the far east while cruising the Singapore Strait or the Gulf of Thailand. These all-inclusive cruises dock in destinations such as Cambodia and Malaysia. Enjoy a romantic escape on your very own Arabian Night, under the stars of the UAE, or travel further to the West Indies.

Caribbean cruises are a top consideration if you’re looking for sunshine and relaxation, surrounded by tropical tranquillity. These adults only cruise ships comb the most decadent coastlines offering access to the opulent island beaches and indulgent breaks. Although surrounded by the alluring deep blue of the Caribbean ocean, palm trees and coconuts are always a frequent sight.

Why choose an Adult Only cruise?

Apart from the obvious fact that there are no children onboard, there are many reasons why an adult-only cruise is a great way to holiday. These Adult Only cruise ships are designed to accommodate both couples and singles, while their activities are all about rest and relaxation.

Perhaps it's time you and a partner rekindled with a holiday just for you, or maybe you're simply looking for some 'me' time without having to worry about the kids. Family holidays are great - but so are those where you can just switch-off.

An adult-only cruise will have many of the same amenities as larger family-style cruises - such as a cinema, Broadway-style theatre a swimming pool - but they'll usually contain some venues specially created for adults too. This might come in the form of an extra luxurious spa, a range of classy restaurants and of course, brilliant bars stocking all your favourite tipples.

Adult Only ships and sailings with Marella Cruises

Marella Cruises really push the boat out when it comes to Adult Only Cruises! Not only do they have a superb selection of Adult Only sailings that can vary from 90s-themed mini cruises to itineraries that adventure through Asia, they also have their very own Adults Only ship - Marella Explorer 2!

She's the sister ship to Marella Explorer  - but with sophisticated new venues, she's very much geared towards adults. You can look forward to sipping prosecco in an all-new bar, Flutes, which even has 'press for bubbles' buttons. That's on top of luxurious experiences in the onboard Champneys Spa and al fresco lunches whipped up at the new pizzeria, Beach Cove.

Many Adult Only sailings also take place onboard another favourite in the fleet, Marella Discovery. These are usually on amazing itineraries venturing through dreamy destinations in Asia - like Thailand, Indonesia and Sri Lanka.

An ode to her name, discovery is definitely key here as each time this ship docks, you are on the cusp of finding and exploring something completely new. The cultures and destinations that sit across Asia and the Far East are so varied and diverse, they are sure to leave a lasting memory with all who visit. One day could see you in the upmarket, chic urban metropolis of Singapore, the next you could be exploring the deserts of Dubai. Wherever you go, adventure awaits.
