Top Winter Cruise Destinations

Cruise Travel Insurance

If you are dreaming of a winter cruise 2012 will sail elegantly into 2013 at one of the top Royal Caribbean holiday destinations. You can find luxury and relaxation, enjoy pampering and romantic evenings, learn some water sports and discover a new culture.

Celebrate a white Christmas on the warm, white sands of a beach in the Bahamas. Ring in 2013 as you island hop and swim in the sparkling turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea. A Caribbean cruise has always been a top winter sun destination and there's something for everyone. Step ashore in Mexico to visit Mayan ruins, or to watch a cricket match in Barbados, all to the accompaniment of calypso music. Most eastern Caribbean cruises schedule a stop at St. Thomas in the Virgin Islands. Walk away from the bustling modern centre and discover the beautiful and calm historical town and the superb restaurants in Frenchtown. This is a safe spot so your cheap cruise travel insurance is the only protection you will need.

Just off the Moroccan coast, the Canary Islands offer winter sun not too far from home. Temperatures are pleasant and in the mid-20s centigrade during the winter months. When you go ashore in the Canaries, you can taste their wonderful wine, or ride a camel over the sand dunes in Gran Canaria. Those seeking some sporting activity can go trekking in the pine forests in Lanzarote, or wind surfing around the coast. And don't forget to watch out for the whales and dolphins as you cruise around the seven islands.

Combine cruising and culture as you sail in the winter sun from Barcelona to Dubai. The weather gets warmer as you pass through the Suez Canal and stop at the Red Sea port of Aqaba. Take an excursion to the rose-coloured city of Petra in Jordan or go snorkelling around the coral reefs in the Red Sea. Winter is the best time of year to visit southern Arabian countries like Oman. The temperatures are in the low to mid 20s centigrade. So you can step ashore and visit the frankincense and sandalwood trees in Oman in comfort before reaching your destination at the soaring modern towers of Dubai in the Gulf.
