If you’re a bit of a sun-seeker, you’ll probably want to head for sunny destinations during your cruise. Well, if that’s the case, why not try some of these options on for size?
1) Marmaris, Turkey
Without a doubt one of the hottest places you can visit on a cruise, the temperatures in Marmaris can sometimes get a bit too high for some. If you love warm weather though, you’ll be treated to average high temperature of at least 30°C in summer, although they can often reach up to °C in summer, although they can often reach up to 35°C in July and August. No matter what time of year you visit at, you’ll always be warm in this part of Turkey!
Marmaris’ beaches are often its biggest attraction – endless stretches of sand and clear waters will greet you upon arrival. There’s also the Marmaris Castle Museum and the Mountain of Roses olive farm which you can take tours around though.
2) Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
This city is famous for its intense heat and amazing culture, along with the memorable statue of Christ the Redeemer atop Corcovado Mountain. It’s always hot in Rio, where the lowest temperature is often 18°C. In January and February you might even be treated to a few days of 30°C weather, so make sure you pack light!
You’ll definitely need to visit Christ the Redeemer, along with the city’s numerous beaches.
3) Sydney, Australia
While Sydney certainly isn’t the warmest place in Australia (it can get much hotter in the North Western part of the country), it does see an excellent amount of sunshine. January is the hottest month, with temperature usually reaching around 25°C. During the Australian winter (June-August) the temperatures usually sit at 2°C, so it’s best to visit in the summertime!
The Sydney Opera House is a must-see attraction, although Bondi Beach, the Royal Botanic Gardens and numerous markets selling all kinds of wares await as well.
4) New York City, USA
New York City is famous for its cold and damp winters, but in the summertime you can enjoy scorching heat and long, sunny days.
