In one of my most recent posts, I talked about cruises in December, and how they’re ideal if you want a relaxing voyage before Christmas. Today I want to look ahead to January, and how our Caribbean cruises are one of the best ways to unwind after a stressful holiday season.
The winter months, especially January, are the best time to book Caribbean cruises. You can escape from the bitter cold weather in the UK and unwind in a tropical paradise, with high temperatures, crystal clear waters, pristine sands and delicious foods.
Luxury Caribbean cruises
Even more so for luxury Caribbean cruises where you’re exposed to only the finest gourmet restaurants, the most serene spas with incredible treatments and the most sumptuous staterooms and suites.
Just close your eyes for a moment (wait until the end of this paragraph) and picture January. Iced up cars and pavements, people battling on the high street trying to grab pointless ‘bargains’ in the sales, dark mornings, dark afternoons, dark evenings…
Now imagine gently swaying in a hammock with a large cocktail by your side. There’s a gentle breeze rolling over you from the coast but it’s only cool, and it’s the ideal temperature to help with the pounding sun. The only sounds are the lapping of the waves and the gentle rustle of a nearby palm tree…
Caribbean cruises provide this and so much more. It isn’t just about sunbathing (although it can be, if you want). You’ll be able to climb mountains, trek through jungle on the hunt for fascinating indigenous wildlife species and explore vibrant towns and cities.
Whether you enjoy the Christmas period or it’s just not your thing, I think a lot of people feel like they could use a holiday by the time January swings around. A lot of the time people use that month to plan their holidays for the rest of the year, but it shouldn’t be discounted as the month you actually travel.
And that’s why Caribbean cruises are such a great option. They provide the ultimate relaxation destination, and help you recover after a hectic December. It’s not too late to book for 2014…
