Winter & Fall Cruises

alaska anniversary cruiseA chilled cruise for your Anniversary

Alaska cruises in June to August are a great way to see all of the wildlife, plus it is warmer in these months! These cruises do get very busy so you will want to book as soon as you can, saying that you can always get a deal if you look hard enough. 

7 Day Alaskan Cruise

Canada and New England cruises are very popular in the Fall as the golden leaves and autumn shades. July and August are their low season but great for water sports.

Caribbean Cruises

The Caribbean cruises are at their busiest late June to August and February to April, it is advised to arrive at least a day early to try and avoid the crowds. It is worth looking at the low seasons, late April to May and September to early January apart from the Christmas and New Year holiday weeks.

There is the threat of hurricane season June to November, but we were in the Caribbean in August a few years ago and only experienced a couple of cloudy days.

7 Day Anniversary Caribbean Cruises

Mediterranean Anniversary Cruises

The Mediterranean's busiest times are May to August, the Med does get very busy during the summer months so again it is worth looking at the low seasons in March to April and September to November.

You will find it easier to see the sights and it will be quieter on board.

Low Cost Cruises

A cruise for your big Anniversary is a real treat and there are ways to cruise for all of the other Anniversaries in between the big ones!

  1. Have you ever heard of re-positioning cruises? These are when the cruise lines are looking to move their big ships to the next route, they are normally only a few days but you get all of the luxury, definitely worth looking at if this will be your first cruise.
  2. Last minute bargains are worth looking at, you could find your perfect anniversary cruise for a fraction of the cost, but as your anniversary is a specific date you may find this could lead to disappointment - it's your call!
  3. Have a look at organizing the parts separately, book your flights and cruise separately if it saves you money.
  4. When you are comparing cruise prices make sure you read the small print as they may not include port charges, taxes, gratuities, shipping and handling fees.
  5. A cheap cruise for your Wedding Anniversary can be found at cruisedirect.com use this website to price compare the various cruise lines and their packages. It doesn't seem worth booking direct with some of cruise lines as they don't offer a discount, the travel agents do!
  6. Another website worth having a look at is Travelocity for their Cruise Deals: Biggest Sale of the Season!! They will have a list of the deals on at the moment.

Good luck finding your cruise for your anniversary, don't forget to send us the photos!
