What is a summer cruise?

A summer cruise is simply a voyage that departs in June, July or August. No matter when or where you cruise, a change in the weather can hamper your plans. But in the summertime, you’re much less likely to get any interruptions from rainfall or stormy weather at sea or when stopping at the various ports of call. Having pleasant weather and sunshine throughout your cruise means you can really make the most of every moment of the experience by taking part in outdoor activities on the deck, lounging in the sun and exploring during port days, without lugging around an umbrella.

With perfect weather, almost every possible excursion will be available during a summer cruise. Whether it’s water sports, hiking trails or top attractions, this is the best time of year to get your pick of the fantastic excursions on offer. Packing for a cruise can seem like a daunting task but if you’re spending your summer cruising in the sunshine, you’ll only need summer clothing. It’s a great season for travelling light if you can’t bear the thought of fussing over your suitcase before your holiday.

Which destinations can you sail to on a summer cruise?

Colder destinations such as Alaska can be fairly inaccessible during the winter, due to heavy snowfall and freezing temperatures, so summer is the best time to visit. The same goes for Iceland, the Baltics and parts of Canada, so if you’ve always dreamed of visiting these cruise destinations, we’d suggest doing so in the summer.

Destinations such as the Caribbean and Mexico are generally great to cruise to all year round, though they can be busier during the summer. So opting for a typically cooler destination can allow you to explore somewhere new and exciting, leaving beach locations for a much-needed winter cruise.

Which cruise lines offer summer cruises?

Many of our cruise line partners offer summer cruises. Celebrity Cruises sail to over 300 destinations across 79 countries, allowing you to explore all seven continents. Royal Caribbean International offers fun for all the family with its incredible innovation, fascinating features and unmissable itineraries aboard each ship, all of which create a unique cruise holiday that allows you to do as much or as little as you like. While luxury river cruise line Uniworld offers spectacular destinations, unique personal experiences and exceptional service.
