Experience the Midnight Sun in Iceland, unwind on a remote beach in Bali or visit our neighbours in Europe. Cruise holidays in July give travellers the pick of the bunch when it comes to destinations and cruise lines, so your summer holiday is truly what you make of it.
Why book a July cruise?
Every year, the northern part of the Earth tilts towards the sun between April and September, with southern areas tilting away. Due to this, summer occurs in the northern hemisphere in June, July and August, and in the Southern Hemisphere in December, January and February. The poles of the Earth experience the greatest changes, as a result, in the summertime, the North Pole experiences Midnight Sun – continuous daylight for 6 months. In some countries, such as Iceland, Norway, Greenland and parts of Canada, you can witness this natural phenomenon for yourself, with the sun not quite setting in some areas. Visiting northerly countries during the Midnight Sun on a July cruise can be a magical experience. Slow sunsets and sunrises create picturesque twilight skies which last for hours. So keep your camera handy!
