There's a reason why "watch a sunset" is number one on our list of top 10 can't-miss things to do on a cruise ship. Few things are more magical than seeing the sun slip below the horizon during sailaway, from your cabin's balcony or with a drink in hand.

If you're missing the pink, purple and golden hues of a setting sun at sea, look no further. We've rounded up our favorite sunset photos from Cruise Critic members and cruise itineraries around the world.
