Why winter cruises you may ask? Well, the simple fact is that they allow you to take advantage of the non conventional climate of certain locations. Since Winter is usually associated with fairly low temperatures, white landscapes, Christmas celebrations and a lot of cozy moments indoors, there are so many alternatives, depending on where you have chosen to spend it. Think gorgeous exotic islands for starters. Imagine pristine beaches covered in fine, ivory sand and waters so transparent they are the absolute reflection of the sky’s blue. A place often referred to as the earthly “Garden of Eden”, and that is Seychelles. Consider the following reasons to choose Seychelles for a winter cruise.
Discover Incredible Destinations
The archipelago of Seychelles harbors unfathomable natural beauty and visiting this destination at least once in your lifetime is somewhat of a privileged necessity, if I may coin the phrase. A popular destination for millions of people around the world, it offers visitors with stunning visuals that remain etched in their minds for years to come. Places like La Digue and Anse Lazio exist to showcase the primordial impeccable beauty of nature, while Victoria on Mahe island is the urban side of Seychelles, exposing a culture that is based on the simple ways of life.
Experience Summer Weather
The Seychelles have the added advantage of wonderful climate all year round. Over the summer months they have warm rather hot temperatures, while during the winter they boast cool instead of cold temperatures. During wintertime, they typically enjoy 27 degrees Celsius, (i.e. 80 degrees Fahrenheit) and this allows for the smooth sailing from island to island, for sunbathing on the deck, for swimming in the azure waters, for exploring their rich depths and for discovering the intoxicating essence of this paradise on Earth.
Relax Beyond Anticipation
There is something resolutely relaxing about cruising; you embark once and get to experience a handful of places without lifting a finger. Ease, comfort and understated luxury while on board are three elements that make the Seychelles all the more enjoyable. A set itinerary that guarantees you will visit all the top highlights and optional excursions mean you can get involved as much or as little as you want. The activities that this destination also offers means you can be as active or as lazy as you want; snorkeling, diving, windsurfing and other water sports versus trekking or hiking and golf. Take your pick, or opt to just relax on the deck of the cruise ship and replenish your energy to last you until the following summer.
