May Cruises From Southampton To The Mediterranean

As spring transitions into early summer, it’s unsurprising to many that a Mediterranean cruise is one of the most culturally rich and scenic regions of the world - is a popular choice during the month of May. An opportunity to explore the beautiful beaches, crystal clear waters, and rich history and culture of this region in near perfect conditions; this, coupled with spectacular ships sailing from the UK, makes for an unforgettable holiday. Whilst many families will opt for cruises during school holidays, other more flexible travellers seeking slightly milder temperatures than peak season months; fewer tourists; and the opportunity to benefit from a greater number of cruise deals will find the shoulder month of May quite fitting.

May Cruises From Southampton To Norwegian Fjords

A great year-round travel destination, Norwegian Fjords cruises offer those who experience it a breathtaking combination of natural wonders with sublime scenery – a partnership that presents some of the most dramatic landscapes on Earth. Occurring during the late spring in Norway, the month of May brings with it flora blossoms, the return of wildlife, and longer daylight hours as you approach the phenomenon of the Midnight Sun (in the northern regions). The month sees fewer tourists than the height of the summer season, however, the warmer weather, sees greater opportunity to hike, kayak and spot seals, seabirds, and perhaps even whales or musk ox on wildlife safaris. It’s an attractive period for travellers hoping for a more laid-back yet picturesque experience in mild crisp weather.

TIP:  Look for itineraries featuring Tromsø, if you wish to experience the phenomena of the midnight sun.
