What is the best month to take a cruise?

I have cruised in December, October, May, June and August.  I prefer early June or May.  Less kids.

January, February, March, April, May, June, July, August, September, October, November, December

Actually all of the above. Any month is a good month to cruise.

Also it depends on where you are cruising to.

We like September--still warm enough to swim, but not as hot as it was in June.  I thought I would surely melt Surprised  and I'm used to KY humidity.

We like to cruise to the Caribbean when the snow in falling in Colorado.  There is nothing so sweet as watching the blizzard back on on the TV in your cabin as you get dressed for dinner.Love

Being an Los Angeles person,   I do not escape my local weather,  it is good most of the time.  Yesterday I was down at Santa Monica beach just to be near the water and it was about 71 degrees.

 

I think the perfect time to cruise depends on the destination.   I have cruised Europe in late November a couple of times and it was perfect,  no kids on the ship,  cool weather and we were lucky with very little rain.  I cruised to England in April and again perfect weather and no kids on the ship.  I like the beginning and end of a cruise season when it is not as busy in the ports.  To do a Caribbean cruise,  out side of storm season and before the humidity gets to bad,

 

I think though that anytime your on a ship is the perfect time to cruise.

Depends upon the destination, but November is my favorite! I've made Thanksgiving dinner for over 20 people for over 30 years and I finally enjoying doing something else.

I like Thanksgiving on a ship.  Celebrity had a full Turkey dinner for Thanksgiving even though we were in Italy.

We prefer late Feb/early March when winter is dreary in our area.

Valid good opinions by all. I will book again in 2017 either for June or Oct. Nothing against kids having a good time but if I pay the fees I should be able to use tbe pool or hot tubs as well.
