When it comes to travel, the fall is an ideal time.

Great weather and fewer crowds mean more enjoyment and Royal Caribbean is encouraging travelers to cruise — and they have an idea of where travelers should head, Greece. 

“If there’s one cruise destination that offers something for everyone—be it history buffs, shopping enthusiasts, photography enthusiasts, adventure seekers, or beach bums—it’s the Greek Isles,” the cruise line points out on their blog.

Reason number one, Greece has perfect weather in the fall. 

“Though hot temperatures in September and October are not uncommon in the Aegean region, it’s comfortably cooler in fall,” they say. 

As we previously mentioned, traveling in the fall means fewer crowds. 

“Come September, most kids are back in school and the crowds have thinned out, so you’ll have space when you browse the cafés and shops along the narrow streets in Crete’s historic quarter,” notes Royal Caribbean.

There are also better deals in the fall. 

“Keep an eye out for special offers for travel in mid- to late-October this year—and don’t forget that planning as far in advance as possible will net you the best results all-around,” the cruise line recommends.
