Browse Winter Cruises

Leave the gloomy British winter behind and seek out a new adventure. Winter is a popular time of year to embark on a Caribbean cruise, as well as holidays to the Mediterranean and the Canary Islands. It’s also the perfect time to visit the likes of Costa Rica, Cuba and Mexico, as they are all in their dry seasons with plenty of sunshine. Where will your winter getaway lead you?

Why book a winter cruise?

Beat the winter blues

Escaping the gloomy British winter is an excellent reason to book a winter cruise. With hundreds of destinations to choose from, with a wide range of cruise lines, including the Caribbean and the Mediterranean, you can leave the gloomy winter behind to bask in the sunshine. If you’re seeking something a little different, why not head to Dubai, Morocco or sunny Madeira? You can discover an entirely new culture while enjoying the winter sun on a cruise.

Christmas Market

Experience yuletide joy in Europe

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! If you’re a festive fanatic, experiencing Christmas celebrations in some of Europe’s prettiest cities is a must. Head to the markets of Amsterdam, Hamburg and Stockholm during a Christmas cruise, taking in the spectacular sights, smells and sounds of yuletide joy. Sip a warm cup of glühwein, snack on lebkuchen or tuck into a delicious Dutch stroopwafel as you browse the markets to find unique Christmas gifts and decorations.

Avoid the crowds

One of the main reasons why people to choose book cruise holidays out of season is to avoid the crowds. It’s inevitable that popular tourist destinations are likely to be calmer outside of the summer holidays. If peace and quiet is important to you during your cruise holiday, then opting for a winter cruise is wise. You can still visit hot locations such as the Canary Islands, Barbados and Greece, but these destinations will be less busy.

Bolivia Salt Flats

Embark on a unique winter adventure

If you’re looking for something different during the winter months, why not head further afield to Central or South America? Costa Rica is a haven for wildlife and winter is a notably good time to visit, with comfortable temperatures in the mid to high 20s. As the peak tourism season will be over, there will be fewer crowds, so you can go at your own pace. Mexico is another exciting winter cruise destination, offering fascinating historical sites, beautiful beaches and wildlife. If you’ve always dreamed of sipping daiquiris in Havana, why not cruise to Cuba this winter? November to April is the dry season there, so you can expect blue skies and low humidity for your cultural Caribbean getaway.

Cruise into the New Year in a new country

If the thought of ringing in the New Year in your local pub fills you with dread, a winter cruise can provide that much-needed change of scenery. Take to the seas on a luxury cruise to ring in the New Year in South East Asia, North America, or even the Africa or the Middle East. On board your cruise ship, expect champagne and a gourmet meal made just for you, so you can see in the New Year in style.
