When are the Summer Holidays?

The Summer Holidays are usually a six-week long break which signifies the end of the academic year for pupils. It's the longest break for kids and presents the perfect opportunity to enjoy an exciting cruise.

The break typically falls in the last few weeks of July and lasts until the end of August or early days of September. In 2019, the Summer Holiday start around 22 July until 30 August, whereas in 2020 the Summer Holidays end a little later around the beginning of September.

It's always worth confirming the dates of your children's school holidays before booking a cruise, as dates can change slightly according to your school and local area.

Where can you cruise during the Summer Holidays?

July and August are some of the most popular months for holidays, mainly because of the length of time pupils are out of school and families can explore further for longer.

The Mediterranean is ideal under the summer sun, with the region's hottest temperatures coming in July and August making it the perfect climate to explore some of Europe's most historic and cultural regions during a cruise.

The Caribbean is another top destination for the Summer Holidays. Visiting here in July offers the chance to enjoy local festivals and plenty of sunshine, whereas in August head to Barbados as the island celebrated the sugar cane harvest.

If you want to venture further during the Summer Holidays, why not look to the Far East or Southeast Asia for culturally-immersive itineraries for you and the family?

Summer Holiday Cruises

As the Summer Holidays are longer than other school breaks, they offer the perfect opportunity to get away with the family. Many cruise lines and ships will have children on-board their ships at these times as well, which is great for your little ones making friends and having playmates. However, if you're looking for a bit of peace and quiet, it might be better looking at alternative dates or cruise lines.
