With over 90 cruise vacations to choose from this fall, you've got some serious choices to make. Staterooms are selling quickly, and you know you want that coveted balcony cabin, so don't miss out.
Why cruise in the fall? Prices are generally lower compared to the popular summer cruise season or the upcoming holiday season. Plus, kids are back in school, so things aren't as hectic. And the weather is great — not too hot, not too cool. The fall season is a perfect time to take a cruise vacation. Here are fall 2018 cruises to book now.

Check out the Brand-New Norwegian Bliss in Alaska
During a Seven-Day Alaska Highlights From Seattle cruise in September on board the brand-new Norwegian Bliss, you'll see trees ablaze in color, and if you're lucky, you may still be able to glimpse the summertime Northern Lights on this Alaska cruise.

Cruise Out of Summer and Into the Baltic
When someone asks if you're ready for summer to be over, you can answer "Heck yeah!" because you're going on a fantastic Nine-day Scandinavia, Russia & Baltic cruise from Berlin. Can you even imagine? Norwegian Breakaway offers this exciting itinerary, which includes being able to spend two full days and an overnight docking in St. Petersburg. There, you can explore the history and grandeur until your heart's content.

Enjoy One Last Summertime-Inspired Hurrah in The Caribbean
There's no better way to quickly dampen your incredible cruise experience than by heading directly to the airport. Consider combining your fall cruise with a pre- or post-stay at your point of embarkment. Why not stay and play a while? Since you've already scheduled your vacation time, make the most of it. A few more days here or there really isn't going to make a difference back home, but it will be an added bonus to your cruise vacation. So, go ahead — enjoy your precious vacation time to the fullest. You know you want to.
