Thinking of booking a romantic holiday? Whether you’re looking to rekindle your passion or celebrate an anniversary, a cruise can be one of the most romantic holidays you’ll ever take.

Foodies know that the culinary experience of a destination can make or break a holiday and a cruise is no different.

Full disclosure: cruises scare me. It’s not being out at sea or the fear of motion sickness (I’ve got pretty decent sea legs); it’s – and I know I’m not alone here – the size of these massive floating cities that terrifies me. So when the invitation came to go on a sea voyage in the Mediterranean, I thought the time had finally come for me to face my fears (#getoverit).

With its turquoise-blue waters, secluded beaches, coves and pine-scented islands, the Dalmatian coast – on the eastern coast of Adriatic Sea in Croatia – is one of Europe’s top sailing destinations. In Split, its main charter base, yachts are hired on a weekly basis, from Saturday afternoon to the following Saturday morning (note to wannabe sailors: unless you have an internationally recognised sailing license, the charter company will supply you with a skipper).

Likened to a five star floating resort, the Sydney Sundancer is the perfect opportunity to enjoy a little bit of luxury and some intimate time with your partner in a beautiful location. This luxury yacht is renowned for its spectuacular sailing, snorkelling, scuba diving, reef walking, whale watching, uninhabited island exploration and gourmet meals complete with award winning wines.
