The Best Cruises In February 2022

November 12, 2021  |  Share:

With the new year quickly approaching, we’ve turned our attention to seeking out the best itineraries and offers for cruise holidays departing in early 2022.

We’ve started with February because let’s be honest; it’s not the most exciting month of the year. Christmas seems like a distant memory, and the typically grey, wet weather certainly doesn’t help.

To remedy this, we’ve profiled ten of the best cruises in February 2022 with a selection of the world’s most famous cruise lines. These bucket list itineraries are perfect if you fancy curing the onset of winter blues and present a diverse range of outstanding travel opportunities, whether you’re looking to catch the sun in the Canaries or the Caribbean or head off on a once-in-a-lifetime adventure to Antarctica.

Finally, while February might not seem like the best month to find a great deal on holiday, the voyages we have chosen offer exceptional value for money, with selected fares including complimentary beverage packages or onboard spending money.
