Types of Cruises – Winter Cruises

The approaching darkness is a gentle annual reminder that winter is approaching ...

... and that the cruise lines are standing by to accommodate the yearning not only for sunnier climes but for winter cruises where you’ll need your parkas, woolly hats and fur-lined gloves. This is a good time to take a cruise. The choice is limited for these types of cruises in the colder parts of the world, but wide open for that warm weather cruise experience. For those living on the east coast of North America, the Caribbean beckons; for those on the west coast there’s the Mexican Riviera.

Further afield is the southern summertime south of the equator – South America, the South Pacific, Southern Africa and Australasia.

No holiday celebration offers more value for money spent than a cruise. The benefits of a winter cruise as opposed to a fancy high-priced resort are huge, particularly if you take the family. When quality family time counts the most, a winter holiday cruise offers flexibility and choice in recreational activities, entertainment, relaxed dining and fun for travelers of all ages. Many cruise lines celebrate the winter holidays all over the world with style and festive spirit. For those who need a reason to pack up the family and take a Hanukkah, Christmas or New Year’s cruise the choice is wide.

With special pricing, an abundance of diverse activities and plenty of entertainment, cruising for the winter holidays is the ideal choice, And with so many different cruises and cruise ships to choose from, there is a holiday cruise for every budget.

Then again, cruise lines don’t confine their winter cruising to sunny destinations of course. Several cruise lines are keeping their ships in Europe as late as December as the demand for these types of cruises in Europe grows; others are even trying year-round cruising in Europe.

And winter is one of the most special times to explore Norway’s northern reaches when you can go in search of the Northern Lights on a Hurtigruten ship, embark on a snowmobile safari in Lapland, speeding over frozen fjords to learn the ways of the Sami people, or thrill to the action of dog sledging on the island of Kvaloya.
