South Pacific Cruise Seasons

Posted June 29th, 2012

South Pacific cruising is not only the most affordable and accessible for Kiwis, but also one of the most desirable cruise destinations in the world. With an all year tropical climate and many countries to choose from, the South Pacific is ideal for anyone wanting to experience a cruise holiday. Here's the cruise seasons to help start your cruise planning...

High Season: July – August

The pros and cons of sailing in season: Cruises operate year round from Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and Tahiti, but the peak months coincide with the holiday season. In general, the dry months from May through to October are the most ideal for cruises to the South Pacific.

Low/Shoulder Season: November – April

The pros and cons of sailing off season: This is considered as the wet season, and the weather is hot, wet and humid, with frequent tropical storms. It is also hurricane season, and this is something to keep in mind. However, you can cruise here year round, and the prices are significantly cheaper during this low season.
