Reasons to go on a Cruise in JanuaryPlanning to take a vacation this winter?  There is no better way to kick off the New Year than with a January cruise to an exotic location! January cruises are the experienced travelers’ well-kept secret, with surprising bonuses that just aren’t available at other times of the year. If you enjoy less crowded ports, adult-oriented activities, and deep discounts that make cruising incredibly affordable, January cruising could be perfect for you! Take a look at a few of the top reasons why you should consider booking a cruise in January 2017:

Happy Traveler Comment
Cesar has been very helpful and courteous. I have a family of 7 so a cruise such as we are taking really does take some arranging with which you folks have really done well. I am sure when we cruise again in the future we would give you folks first opportunity to serve us. — Ken B.

1.) Great cruise savings

Cruises have become one of the most popular ways for families to spend the Christmas holiday, so cruise fares are at their highest during December when kids are out of school. By pushing your cruise vacation to January, you can enjoy fantastic savings of as much as 50% off the premium prices charged in December.

2.) Flights are cheaper

If your ideal cruise vacation involves visiting as many exotic locales as possible, low airline fares make it affordable to choose an embarkation port located in your desired destination region. That way you spend less of your cruise time at sea sailing to your destination, which leaves more time for exploring exciting ports.

3.) Fewer crowds

The chance to experience different cultures and explore exotic locations are some of the best reasons to go on a cruise, but cruise ships are at their highest capacities during the holidays. This can lead to crowded ports and heavy participation in shore excursions. Holiday crowds thin out after the New Year so you can enjoy a more relaxed, enjoyable cruising experience in January, deeply immersed in the unique cultures of your cruise destinations.

4.) Less kids

Cruises have become a centerpiece of many families’ Christmasholiday celebrations. If you prefer an adult-oriented cruise, booking your cruise for January when school has just resumed makes the most sense. After holiday vacations, many parents are reluctant to have their kids start the New Year with an extended absence.

5.) Idyllic weather

Hurricane season ends around November 30, so weather in the Atlantic should be refreshingly calm and free from tropical storms by January. That’s why many experienced travelers consider January the best time to go on a cruise to Bahamas, when you can escape the winter blues to lounge on white sand beaches in a tropical paradise. offers incredible deals on January cruises, like this on Royal Caribbean 5 Days Caribbean-Western Cruise departing January 9, 2017. You can save as much as $380 per stateroom with fares starting as low as just $355!
