Since the weather limits destination options, this handpicked list of best cruises that you must take in the month of May is sure to help.


Best time to go: May to September

May is the driest month and, therefore, is the best time to explore the monumental glaciers, snow-covered peaks and fjords of Alaska. The cruise through Alaska is every photographer’s dream with its awe-inspiring views and panoramas.

Best time to go: April to May

Sail to Galapagos which is the living laboratory of Darwin and has an abundance of wildlife. Snorkel amidst shimmering fishes, sea turtles, penguins and playful sea lions. Cruise to pristine islands, explore the Galapagos waters and walk among colonies of animals and birds unfazed by your presence. Last but not the least, don’t forget to observe the rare giant tortoises at the Charles Darwin Research Station.

Fjords of Norway

Best time to go: May to August

Sailing around the majestic fjords of Norway will leave you feeling that you have stepped into a picture postcard. The rocky cliffs, and narrow inlets overlooking glaciers and innumerous waterfalls look picture perfect. A cruise around Geirangerfjord and Gudvangen Fjord are some of the best cruise experiences one can have.

Europe River Cruises

Best time to go: April to October

The European river cruises are one of the best cruises for May as this is the month when spring takes over and there seems to be an explosion of colours around all European cities. The rivers are undoubtedly the perfect way to explore Europe at this time of the year.

Best time to go: May to September

The French Riviera, Greek Islands, Spain, Italian Ligurian Coast...there is so much to be explored on a Mediterranean cruise. The weather is just right between May and August to enjoy these destinations. Asian, European and American tourists flock to the Mediterranean regions in large numbers during the summers so the cruises do tend to be packed to capacity. Book in advance so that you get your choice of rooms on board the cruise ship.
