As the air turns cooler and the leaves begin to change, the time comes where your summer vacation is too long ago and next year is just too far away. While cruising any time of the year is clearly our vacation of choice, there’s just something about fall cruises that offers a unique charm and some of the best deals of the year. So what’s so special about fall cruises?
When cruising in the autumn, there are a few distinct advantages!
Fall Cruises Have Fewer Crowds
As summer draws to a close, many people’s lives at home pick up pace and their vacation mindset is put off until next year. We say “Why wait?” On fall cruises, there are typically fewer crowds! This means you won’t be jostling for the best view of glacier cruising in Alaska. And on family cruise lines, the kids are back in school so of course that means fewer crowds and even better: no lines for the water slides or go kart track! Find a long weekend in the autumn season to take a fall family cruise this year.
Milder Weather and Seasonal Scenery
Who doesn’t love a nice fall evening, with the breeze on your face and a nice drink to keep you warm? It’s even better at sea! On fall cruises, the weather is cooler and is optimal for those who are looking for an escape right after a scorching summer. Some cruise ships now feature outdoor lounges complete with a firepit, so you don’t have to miss out on great bonfire weather just because you’re on vacation. Plus, with cooler weather comes changing leaves and vibrant fall colors – in more way than one. Find out more about all the colors, like the leaves and Northern Lights, in our Best Fall Cruise Destinations blog!
