Missed Your Chance to Cruise this Summer? Here’s why a Fall Cruise Should Be on Your Radar

Summertime means peak travel time for lots of people, but if you missed out on a summer vacation this year, don’t fret. You still have time for an incredible cruise vacation before the year is over and here’s why a fall cruise may be even better, including great deals.

Weather is Still Nice, But Not Blisteringly Hot

The weather in the summer months can be incredibly hot in some cruise regions, particularly in the Mediterranean region of Europe. If you’re not one for sweating out your shore excursions, take a fall cruise during which you should still encounter decent weather, but with much milder temperatures.

Popular Destinations are Not as Crowded

The fall cruise season will take you around the world during what’s known as shoulder season in the tourism industry. Shoulder season refers to the couple of months immediately before or after the summer season when the weather is still nice and tourism is still often in full swing, but on a much smaller scale. Since not as many people are able to travel during shoulder season – or prefer not to if they desire hot weather – there are fewer crowds in popular tourist destinations, meaning more space for you to explore your surroundings.

Canada and New England Fall Cruises

You don’t have to travel far for a memorable cruise vacation. Head to the east coast of America and embark on a fall foliage cruise. The northeast region of the United States and southeast area of Canada is known for its incredible leaf colors in autumn. Shades of crimson, gold, and orange dazzle locals and travelers alike every year. Leaf chasers will get lots of opportunities to see a variety of fall foliage views on the cruise thanks to ports of call in Cape Liberty, New Jersey; Boston, Massachusetts; Portland, Maine; Bar Harbor, Maine; and Quebec City, Quebec. In addition to spotting lovely leaves, you’ll also get the chance to explore these historic and beautiful towns.

Great Fall Cruise Deals

The shoulder season aspect of the fall travel season means it’s also possible to find great deals due to demand not being as high.

Also, Celebrity Cruises currently has the World is Open Sale going on for a limited time. This sale lets cruisers who book oceanview staterooms or higher accommodation categories pick two free perks to enhance their cruise vacation.
