New York is a fabulous city for cruises, whether you want to see the sights from the Hudson River, or you want to make NYC the starting point for a luxurious cruise vacation. Either way, you’ll want the weather to be perfect. This begs the question, “What are the best months for NYC cruises?

If you’re a regular traveler or you’re looking for apartments for rent in New York and plan to make local cruises part of your lifestyle, you’ll agree the answers are important.

Perfect Cruising Months

Travel experts at Frommer’s hit the nail on the head when they said that there’s no one-size-fits-all answer to the question about the best months for cruises. Let’s take a closer look.

NYC As the Starting Point For a Cruise Vacation

If you’re thinking of cruising up the New England and Canadian coasts from NYC, Frommer’s recommends booking your cruise anytime in June through early September or even October. The temperatures are warmer, and you can expect the driest weather in June, July, and September. If you travel in the period between the second or third week of September and mid-October, you can enjoy the colors of fall’s “leaf-peeping” season.

Do you have your heart set on a cruise from New York City to Bermuda? Take Frommer’s advice and travel in March, April, or November. One of the most important reasons for cruising in those months is because Bermuda is usually in the storm path during hurricane season, especially between August and October. If you cruise during the island’s festival season (winter through early summer), you can enjoy various cultural highlights.

If the Caribbean islands are calling you, consider booking your cruise for January, May, or September. Those months help you avoid hurricane season, ships are less crowded as kids are in school, and the weather’s better than it is up north. If you choose to go in January or September, you’ll be back in time for two of the best periods to look for apartments for rent in New York. 

Cruises Around NYC

Luxurious New York apartments for rent offer you a place to call home in the most exciting city in the world. You can ramp up your New York lifestyle by enjoying cruises that offer a variety of experiences on the Hudson and East rivers.

April is one of the finest months for cruises on the river, as the days are getting warmer but aren’t yet humid, and the parks, restaurant terraces, and rooftop bars start coming to life. Plus, you can enjoy the beauty of springtime blossoms. 

This April, you can enjoy a free cruise as part of a Sightseeing Bus tour package, as well as events such as popular Broadway shows, the New York International Auto Show, and the Greek Independence Day parade. The atmosphere that begins in April crescendos during the summer months, which are also great for NYC cruises. That’s just for starters, as there are plenty of reasons to rent in Manhattan.
