You all have met Brian, right? (Well if you haven’t it’s about time you did!) He’s our super savvy cruise, excursion, and tours guy. Don’t let his surly exterior fool you, he’s actually stinking hilarious and one of the nicest guys you’ll meet. Anyways, while I was researching destinations to include in this article for best June getaways, I decided to also ask Brian what his thoughts were on the best cruise deals for the month.
He came back with this perfect tagline for the best overall cruises he had found, and somehow it also perfectly matched my research results! So here it is, the ideal places to travel this June if you want to get the best bang for your buck, and lucky for you, we’ve got three options – beaches, bears, or the Baltics. Read on to see what we mean.
I’m sure you’re tired of seeing Hawaii on every single travel guide, but this time you should really listen up because June is the time to go. You should especially go if you plan on staying in Kaua’i, it’s one of the oldest and lushest islands in Hawaii. It’s stunning, home to breathtaking scenery, and unendingly warm – even in the winter when the rains bring humpback whales near to the shore.
In this lovely month of June, you can expect the travel prices to plummet and for temperatures to reach near perfect conditions. The surf will be the calmest you’ve ever seen it, making it perfect for boat tours off the Napali coast, swimming in famous Hanalei Bay, or taking in the cliffs of Waimea Canyon.
When it comes to your stay check out the Grand Hyatt Kauai for its many pools and ideal location on Shipswreck Beach, or if you place peace and quiet above all else take a look at what St. Regis Princeville has to offer. If saving money is the most important factor in your stay choice, check out our site for other incredible yet cheap options.
Cruise Bermuda for seven days on the Norwegian Dawn of the Norwegian Cruise Line. June is the month where the weather warms up, and the temperature stays between 70-80 degrees. If you mix that with our killer cruise deals this month, it becomes a destination you won’t want to miss. You’ll even come in time for the Queens Parade, weekly Harbor Nights, the Olde Town Market, and the numerous yacht races. Hi, let’s go to Bermuda, shall we?
It’s one of the oldest and largest national parks in the United States and was established in 1872. It sprawls across northwest Wyoming and is where you need to be this June if the outdoors are calling you. In this beginning-of-the-summer month wildlife is out in full force, and you’ll see just about everything from a gangly, long-limbed bighorn lamb to a grizzly bear on the prowl.
Don’t miss the wildflowers sprinkled across its low mountain slopes or its many geothermal attractions. Old Faithful lives here, and so does some beautiful spring-like weather. Walk up a mountain and play in the snow, then walk back down to work on your tan. Every outdoorsy option is open to you here, and you don’t have to worry about fighting the crowds – the two million acres absorbs most of it!
If renting a motorhome isn’t your thing check out the many hotel options available to you here at pretty reasonable prices. Float down a river, swim, hike, cliff jump, raft, ride a horse, climb a mountainside, go zip-lining, or fish. Even if you’re not the outdoorsy type, the sights alone will convert any visitor to a fan, and make every Instagramer look like a professional.
Cruises to and around this state are “on fire” according to our master cruise guy – and he would know, he’s been there! Spend seven days on the Holland America Cruise Line for a steal, and see all the nature and animals you wouldn’t see otherwise. This is the best time of year for prime Alaskan weather because the days are long and warm. Jump off the boat to see Denali National Park and soak up enough grizzly sightings to scare a zillion sockeye salmon.
During June in the far north of Sweden, the sun barely sets, which is why we think this country is the ideal place to be living your best life this spring/early summer. You could stay in Stockholm in an artsy Story Hotel single twin room, then explore about, meeting the many single travelers that are drawn to this destination.
There are endless adventures in the city of Stockholm – you can traverse the cobblestoned streets of Old Town, explore a castle, or see one of its many modern art exhibits instead. Either way, the hospitality is high (especially to women!) and you’ll never be bored, or lack for Swedish meatballs.
If you want to stay out of the city check out the Midsommar celebration near June 24th in the countryside. This commemoration of the summer solstice involves erecting a maypole and has been a tradition for generations. Eat even more meatballs and pickled herring, or take part in drinking copious amounts of aquavit!
Let Norwegian Cruise Line take you on a nine-day adventure through the Baltic Sea. See Copenhagen, Helsinki, Saint Petersburg, and more all from the comfort of a luxury cruise! No need to move from multiple hotels, book multiple flights, or plan out and budget for your meals – this cruise will have it all. Also, it’s the best time to see this area! Who would want to go to the great white north in the cold? Not us, that’s who. We’d much rather enjoy it in the sun.
Have we got your creative travel juices flowing yet? We sure hope so! If you have any questions or suggestions please feel free to comment below. Also, our phone lines are open to help you make the best cruise choice possible, so hit us up! Until next time sweet Interliners, safe travels and keep your eyes on the skies.
