Why book an April cruise?

With April announcing the arrival of spring, plants and flowers begin to flourish. To experience the best displays of flowers and blossoms, there are a few key destinations to consider for your April cruise. In Tokyo, spring is marked by the blooming cherry blossom. Walk through archways of cherry blossom trees or visit one of the city’s many festivals celebrating the arrival of spring. Closer to home, the Netherlands' iconic tulips bloom in the spring, transforming acres of land into a rainbow. The Keukenhof Gardens, 45 minutes from Amsterdam in Lisse, are a great place to admire the tulips. If you’re embracing the UK during your April cruise by visiting the British Isles, look out for the vibrant purple heath in the Scottish Highlands.

Experience the cities of Europe in April

After the long, wet winter subsides, warmer spring days provide the perfect opportunity to explore Europe’s cities. Sail along the Seine to see Paris in all its glory, embark on a Rhine River cruise to see the Gothic architecture of Cologne or head further south along the Douro River in Portugal to experience the ancient city of Porto. Best of all, you’ll beat the crowds by visiting so early in the year, so you’ll get the sights and sounds all to yourself. You’ll find many cruises in April sailing from the UK visiting all over Europe, making your holiday simple and stress-free. Choose from a range of award-winning cruise lines to find your perfect April getaway.

Set your sights on the States

Spring is an excellent time to experience North America. Whether you’ve always dreamed of seeing New Orleans or strolling through the leafy suburbs of New England, the USA is guaranteed to impress. In April, temperatures have levelled off, so you shouldn’t expect snow or extreme heat. Instead, embrace the mild weather in the likes of New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles or even Alaska during your cruise. The Last Frontier will be springing to life with wildflower meadows and starting to welcome tourists. Browse our April cruise deals today.
