Why cruise in August?

Coming into the late summer seasons, August is the perfect time to enjoy the last of the hot months in the Mediterranean or take a last-minute getaway with your family whilst the schools are still on a break.

You could wander along golden beaches in Turkey or the Mediterranean, or escape the summer heat with a cruise to Alaska or the Norwegian fjords. Maybe you’re looking for a great choice of sightseeing adventures during your time ashore – or you might prefer to spend a few days at sea, watching the kids enjoy the top-deck water park while you’re stretched out on a sunbed.

Whether you want to explore the shores throughout the many ports of Europe or take the family to the wilderness of Alaska, August is the ideal month to escape with your loved ones and get away from it all.

Cruising the Mediterranean in August

Head to the Mediterranean in August and discover the diversity of the Mediterranean during one of its warmest months, where you can visit iconic cities such as Barcelona and Rome or relax in sunny St Tropez.

The Mediterranean has an array of activities and excursions to enjoy with your family such as diving in Malta, adventuring along the Dalmatian Coast or trying the local cuisine in Spain.

The Caribbean in August

With its year-round popularity, the Caribbean is a top destination throughout August. The warm temperatures and uncrowded beaches make it the perfect place to relax, take a dip in the sea and enjoy the picture-postcard scenery.

Cruise from sun-kissed ports such as Fort Lauderdale in Florida or San Juan in Puerto Rico and discover such paradise escapes as St Maarten, Grand Cayman and Nassau. No matter where your itinerary takes you, you can be assured of a sun-drenched holiday visiting here in August. If you head to Barbados, keep an eye out for festivities during August as the island celebrates the sugar cane harvest.

Where else to cruise in August

Explore the northern tip of Europe and venture further afield during August to experience the stunning scenes of Norway’s horizons and Finland’s natural beauty. Sail to the shores of Denmark and visit its legendary capital city, Copenhagen or even see Iceland’s unforgettable Reykjavik.

Spend the last of summer in the Canary Islands during August, enjoying the sunshine across the islands as it stays at a constant high throughout the month. Spend time exploring Tenerife, Lanzarote or Gran Canaria under the blue skies with your family.

The summer months also bring opportunities to explore the wonders of Alaska, with lots of August cruises sailing to major ports such as Vancouver, British Columbia and Seward. Visit memorable towns of Juneau, Skagway and Ketchikan, where you can witness awesome glaciers and sample local delicacies throughout the region.
