When is the best time to cruise?

The ideal time frame depends on numerous factors, such as how much you want to spend, the type of weather you prefer and whether you will be bringing children along. You can cruise the Caribbean year-round but the best time to cruise weather-wise is usually not the most economical. The bargains are typically during the late summer and fall during the off-season and while children are still attending school. Some inexpensive rates are also found between mid-April and the end of May.

In essence, the best time to cruise is late June through August; February through mid-April.

Alaska: June through August

Australia: late November to March
Bermuda: June through August

Caribbean: late June through August; February through mid-April
