As Autumn Half Term is toward the end of the year, you need to consider what type of weather you want for your cruise. You can experience the end of the summer season with a cruise to the Mediterranean, which still holds some warm temperatures for you to enjoy while exploring.
October is also when many cruise lines reposition for the winter season, which means there are many transatlantic voyages available. These usually pair nicely with a trip to New York before embarking on a seven-night crossing of the Atlantic back to the UK - perfect excuse for a shopping trip before Christmas!
A cruise during the Autumn Half Term is a great way to enjoy some last-chance sunshine before the winter months set in back in the UK, with many cruise lines offering sailings at this time of year. As it's a school holiday, there will be many children on-board your cruise ship at this time, great for your little ones making friends! However, if you want a more relaxing and quiet getaway, it might be wise to choose alternative dates.
