A winter holiday gives you something to look forward to when the long dark nights set in and a Caribbean cruise is especially the perfect remedy for the winter blues.
Whether you’re looking for the white, sandy beaches of the Caribbean or a sun-seeking Canary Islands cruise, our UK cruise team is here to help you find the perfect winter sun cruise. Winter cruises can help relieve the stress of Christmas. You could enjoy a pre-Christmas sailing to get a holiday glow before the festive season starts, or even escape the hours of vegetable peeling, turkey stuffing and TV repeats with one of our Christmas & New Year cruises that cover the festive period itself. Don’t worry, the big guy in the red suit will still know where to find you, even if you are relaxing in the sun with a cocktail in an exotic location.

If you’re looking to escape the cooler weather in favour of sunnier climes, we have some alluring deals to pique your interest. Bag yourself a bargain and take advantage of that warm winter sun.
If you’re dreaming of a hot Christmas, you’ll fall in love with the Caribbean. The peak season for cruising here runs from December to April where you can hop from island to island and spend sultry afternoons topping up your tan under swaying palms, swimming with tropical fish or browsing colourful local markets.
Skip your typical turkey dinner for tasty conch fritters in Turks and Caicos or rum, reggae and relaxation in Jamaica – the very latest winter sun cruises are guaranteed to give you your hottest Christmas yet.
Why not try something exotic on your quest for some winter sun? The likes of Morocco and Egypt are a great bet for a winter cruise. Temperatures soar to 40°C during the summer but the cooler climate in winter of 15°C-20°C means you can enjoy the sights and sounds in comfort.
Be enchanted by local Arabic culture and exciting cuisine, explore the ancient wonders of the world from a felucca on the River Nile or take a leisurely camel ride through the desert. When you leave its shores, you will never forget the heady aromas, bustling markets, rich culture and those unforgettable starlit skies.
Why cruise in winter?
From large to small, cruise ships offer a treasure trove of things to do. If you’re an active traveller, a morning jog around the running track at sunrise is a superb way to kick-start the day, or perhaps a leisurely coffee with magic sea views is more your style. The main pool deck is a family fun area with festive music and all-day entertainment where you can soak up the sun and holiday vibe.
Winter sun cruises can include family-oriented activities such as rock-climbing, playing mini-golf or navigating another universe in a virtual reality experience. From tots to teens, children are well catered for with facilities like baby centres, kids’ clubs and teen hangout areas.
If you are travelling without children, you could find a dedicated adults-only pool area with sumptuous day beds where the poolside drinks flow. You could also enjoy bubbles or cocktails with live music at one of the elegant bars or do some duty-free shopping on board for those extra-special splurge items.
Winter Cruises are not only about the sun
Winter cruises are not just about sun-seeking. You could book a European Mini cruise in winter to enjoy a short break and visit a European city to shop the Christmas markets. A winter med cruise is a great opportunity to enjoy the sights in some of Europe’s most exciting coastal cities, without the hustle and bustle of the summer crowds. Temperatures in winter make the sight-seeing opportunities all the more pleasant.
