Our Picks for Summer Cruise Destinations
CruiseExperts.com’s Picks for Summer Cruise Destinations
Summer is here!! What better way to celebrate than taking a cruise to some of our top picks for summer cruise destinations of 2016! CruiseExperts.com can help you find the best deals on some of the most amazing cruises this summer.
Baltics: First on our list of our best summer cruise destinations would have to be the Baltics. The Baltic cruise season is typically May to September but June and July are the best months to visit by far! The days are long and temperatures usually range in the high 60’s and 70’s. If you’re looking for a perfect summer experience a Baltics cruise rank among our top favorites for a cruise getaway! You’ll discover Copenhagen and northern Germany. You can explore the wonders of historic Scandinavia, where Vikings and czars reigned. Travel back in time to the medieval town of Tallinn, Estonia and view with awe the Catherine Palace, Peterhof Palace and the fabulous onion-domed churches in St. Petersburg, Russia. Walk the medieval streets in Stockholm’s Gamla Stan, and have your breath taken away by the pristine beauty of the Norwegian Fjords. This will be a cruise you will remember forever!
Alaska: Alaska season is upon us! Like the Baltics, the Alaska season runs from May to September. June is my personal favorite month for Alaska. The flowers are blooming and it usually is the month with the nicest weather. If you go toward the end of June you can enjoy 19 hours of daylight, which is quite an experience all of its own! There are so many different options available when deciding on an Alaskan vacation. You can cruise North or Southbound one way, or cruise roundtrip from Vancouver or Seattle, and even San Francisco. You can also add a land tour to your cruise, either pre- or post-cruise, making it what we call a “cruisetour”. If you’re still thinking about Alaska for this summer, though, you better hurry, as cabin space is selling out rapidly on the most popular sailings.
Bermuda: If water play is a must for you, Bermuda is perfect from June to August. Bermuda is an especially popular destination in the summer months when temperatures hover at 80 degrees. The water is ideal for any water activity you can imagine and the weather is beautiful too. If it’s outdoor adventure you crave Bermuda is a great summer cruise destination! Crowds flock to this tourist-friendly, sub-tropical island for pink sand beaches and famous golf courses, while taking in its charms at the Hamilton, St. George, and King’s Wharf ports. Many cruises dock for three days, which gives you even more time to explore or simply relax.
Mediterranean: Europe is the place to be over the summer! The weather is perfect, the towns are lively, and the foliage is beautiful. Mediterranean cruise season is from May to September but the most active month is usually in August. However, we recommend cruising to the Mediterranean in July or September, as August is when most Europeans usually go on holiday. July and September will offer you fewer crowds, cheaper prices, and more European shops will be open for your enjoyment.
