The main cruise season runs from May to September, but it does change depending on where you are cruising to. If you are going on a Canada and New England cruise, peak cruising season is in September and October when you can see the fall foliage at its best. If the Caribbean is your destination, then you can expect great weather and lots of crowds in peak season, late June to August, but if you want to escape the crowds then consider cruising in low season, from April to May. Just keep in mind that this is hurricane season too.
