Default Top Places at Sea for A Sunset

I have been blessed to travel the world by cruising and to be able to watch the sunset in some really spectacular places. With the basic assumption that any place that you can be on a cruise, sit on your veranda and watch the sunset is awesome, here are my favorite places to watch a sunset..my goal at this point in my life is to go back to all of these places, on a cruise, with the same GF (or I guess if I get that far she better be my new DW (VVBG)

# 1 Santorini Greece
#2 Venice Italy
#3 Maui, Hawaii
#4 Tortola BVI
#5 Whidbey Island, Seattle

I'm curious what are your favorite places to watch a spectacular sunset when you are on a cruise sitting on your veranda ?

Key West... without a doubt, sunsets are spectacular and surreal.

Give me 52 days - OK - 68 days so I can return, and I will give you my opinion of the Hawaii sunsets/rises.

Any caribbean cruise featuring a sea day headed in an easterly direction. The sun will set off the stern. Passengers applaud when the sun sinks below the horizon.

One more vote fpr Key West and the Gulf of Mexico. Alaska too has my vote. The sky turned the Mountains pink at midnight when we were there last year. It was incredible.

Another vote for Key West. Was stationed there in the Navy for nearly 3 years and some of the most beautiful sunsets I have ever seen were there.
