Summer Vacation Selection

When it comes to choosing your vacation destination, folks can get stuck trying to decide between several great options. Summer cruises open up a world of possibilities, but how to determine which one is best for you? The warmest months of the year draw guests north to Alaska and across the Atlantic to the breezy Mediterranean Sea. Let’s take a look at a few popular routes for summer cruises that may match up with your wishes and requirements.

Alaskan Voyage

Summer is the ideal time to cruise the mountainous coastline of Alaska. From June to September, temperatures are comfortable, skies remain sunny until late in the day and native wildlife is at its most active. Make sure your cruise itinerary spends a day in Glacier Bay National Park, the UNESCO World Heritage Site that is home to ice blue glaciers and resident animals like brown bears, bald eagles, dolphins and humpback whales. Spend a morning in total relaxation on your private balcony as you grab the binoculars to spot nearby sealife while enjoying a hot breakfast of flaky croissants, golden eggs and savory sausage. Dinner could be a “Cook My Catch” experience of authentic Alaskan seafood if you are lucky enough to reel in a fish during a fishing excursion.

Mediterranean Journey

On a European cruise, you can explore the historic cities and iconic sights you’ve always dreamed of visiting all from the luxury of a familiar home base where you return each evening. Unpack once in your luxurious stateroom and navigate numerous countries and lands without the hassle of checking in and out of hotels each day. Warm summer days are the perfect time to explore European wonders like La Sagrada Família in Barcelona, the Roman Colosseum or the white architecture of Mykonos set against the turquoise sea. Immerse yourself in the unique identity of each region and taste flavors like savory Spanish paella, classic Greek moussaka and zingy Italian pesto.
