Cruises during May half-term

Summer half term is also known as May half term as it takes place each May. This half-term break is a week-long and a great opportunity to get away as a family outside of the main summer holidays.

When is summer half term?

In England and Wales, summer half-term typically begins with the annual Spring bank holiday. Upcoming summer half terms are typically at the end of May. However, dates can differ depending on your local area and your child's school. We recommend confirming school term dates with them prior to booking.
