Winter Get-Away Cruise Destinations

January 20, 2017

Vacations, road trips, and cruise holidays are popular during the summer season. Most people are used to the idea that summers are the best time to spend a holiday. But those who have experienced the cold and wet winter weather in the UK may want to re-consider their holiday schedules. Instead of cruising during the summer why not explore exciting destinations during the winter season. This way you can escape the dull winter weather and exchange it with warm and sunny ones. Here are some nice spots where one can cruise around and get away from the bleak winter weather of the  UK.

When it comes to beach island holidays the Caribbean is often among the top of the tourists’ list. These islands are perfect for cruises because of the cultural diversity among the different islands. One can simply visit one island after another and enjoy a unique island experience in each of them. However, there are also things that are common in all of the Caribbean Islands and those are the beautiful and clear waters, sandy beaches and lots of sunshine.

Near the Caribbean is another great destination, The Mexican Coast. This place is ideal for those who to mix beach frolics with an active night life. You can spend a quiet time in the beach or engage in some water activities like diving and snorkeling by day, then spend the nights partying with the bands, dancing in bars or restaurants, and soaking-in their margaritas.

Those who would like more than just the sun and the sand can put Egypt in their list of cruise destinations. UK residents can reach it through a short flight, and they can have a long list of sites that they can visit during their trip. Aside from water adventures, a cruise to Egypt also offer some shore excursions that takes tourists to iconic sights like the Great Pyramids and the ancient tombs.

Not everyone who wants an escape from UKs winter weather would automatically go for sunny destinations. Some would simply like to make their environment more interesting or colorful. There are also great destinations that have cold weathers too, one is Scandinavia.

Those who would like to explore the Arctic region during winter can book a Scandinavian Cruise where they can have a good chance of seeing the Northern Lights or Aurora. They may also enjoy a hike in the fjord or view Arctic animals in their natural habitats.

There is no need to spend your winters sipping hot tea or keeping yourself indoors to stay warm when you have the option to get out and enjoy great cruise options. With plenty of choices available, one is sure to find a winter get-away cruise that would fit their needs.

  1. Yesterday morning we had snow, then by noon it was all gone (thankfully), today the temperature was 60 and I wanted to wear shorts, but it’s still too cool for that. If I had money and time I would so be somewhere warm.
