Why Choose a Cruise in October?
Autumn is one of the best times to go on a cruise. Being the shoulder season, you will miss the busy summer crowds in popular places like the Mediterranean and enjoy milder temperatures, which are great for port expeditions. Autumn is also good on your pocket as there will be more cruise deals available and some cruise lines throw in extra perks to help fill their ships. And as most children are back in school, this is the perfect time for adults traveling without children to take advantage of the tranquil ambiance onboard.

Repositioning Cruises in October
Autumn cruises becoming more popular every year because the price is much lower while the weather is still OK. Repositional cruises are the unsung heroes of the cruise industry. Most cruise ships tend to follow the same return route, for instance, starting in Barcelona and then ending there for your flight back home. This is a convenient way to book flights, but it also means that you will see some places twice. Repositioning cruises are different in that they relocate to follow the sun, which means you will be able to cover a much bigger distance. In Autumn, UK cruise enthusiasts can look out for the huge amount of ships that crosses from the UK to the Caribbean, US and South America, calling at exciting destinations like Iceland and the Canadian Maritimes along the way.
