April Cruise FAQs

What's the best cruise to take in April?

If guaranteed sunshine is a must for your springtime cruise, it’s best to sail down to the equator. Itineraries including the Canary Islands, the southern Mediterranean and Hawaii are often the most popular at this time because of the excellent weather and laidback lifestyle. But if the weather doesn’t bother you and you’re looking for a great deal on once-in-a-lifetime adventures in far-off countries, then a transatlantic cruise to the likes of Canada or Alaska might be more your speed. Finding your perfect cruise in April couldn’t be easier with so many luxury cruise liners sailing to wonderful destinations all around the world. Plus, the seas should be beginning to calm, so it’s smooth sailing all around!

Is April a good time to go on a cruise?

April is a great time to climb onboard a cruise ship and sail to beautiful destinations. The long school break for Easter means that families can get away for longer and spend some quality time together both on and off the ship. Meanwhile, couples and solo travellers can also get away for great prices at the start and end of the month since it’s still technically out of season for most destinations. Regardless of what type of cruise holiday you’re searching for, April can bring great weather, affordable prices and incredible experiences.

Is April a busy cruise time?

The Easter school holidays and warming temperatures in the most popular destinations across the globe can make April a busy time to set sail on a cruise. That being said, it’s generally not quite as busy as the following summer months. April can be a great time to grab a bargain and miss out on the crowds at the end of the summer in the likes of the Caribbean, New Zealand and Australia.

If you’re after quieter ships, it’s usually best to book a cruise at the beginning or end of the month to avoid the rush of the school holidays in between.

Is the Caribbean Sea rough in April?

As the Caribbean comes to the end of its dry season, it’s possible that visitors might experience the odd storm at sea. Luckily, any rough sailing shouldn’t last too long! For the best weather and calmest seas, choose itineraries in the most southerly islands like Trinidad and Barbados where temperatures remain in the high 20s and sea conditions are more serene.
