The most popular fall repositioning cruises are those from the Europe to the Caribbean or from Alaska to the Caribbean through the Panama Canal. Some cruise ships also reposition to Asia from the Mediterranean by sailing through the Suez Canal, while others cross the Atlantic to South America. All of these repositioning cruises are usually 10 days or longer, and most feature numerous days at sea. Most represent excellent bargains for the cruising public. They also represent a good opportunity to try a new ship for a relaxing sea voyage.
Starting in August, ships reposition from Europe to the Caribbean, the eastern coast of North America, or South America before the end of the year.
Since the Alaska cruise season ends in September, ships from Alaska will start moving south to the Panama Canal, Hawaii, Australia, or Asia.
