Updated Guidance for Cruises Departing the U.S and Europe. View health and travel requirements
October is one of the most underrated months to travel. It’s considered “shoulder season” in many parts of the world, which means you get access to authentic, exclusive experiences in iconic destinations, often avoiding the summer crowds. Celebrity’s October cruises sail to extraordinary destinations like Canada, Japan, and the Western Mediterranean. This fall, you could be witnessing the fall foliage of Canada and New England, watching a Geisha performance in Japan, or tasting wine on the French Riviera.
Skip the heat and crowds on an October cruise to the Western Mediterranean. Indulge in Spanish tapas in Valencia and Alicante before seeing the famous Rock of Gibraltar. Drive along the French Riviera in a Lamborghini, taste the delectable wines of Provence, and learn how to make pasta in Tuscany. Explore the Vatican and ancient ruins in Rome and swim in the still-warm Mediterranean before sailing back to Barcelona.
There’s no better time to cruise from Boston to Canada than October, when the region’s fall foliage bursts with color. Embark on a luxury yacht and sail along the Nova Scotia coast. Discover one of Alexander Graham Bell’s favorite landscapes in Sydney. Overnight in the culture capital of Quebec City and explore the city’s striking architecture or visit the cascading Montmorency Falls. Indulge in Maine’s famous lobster roll in Portland before returning to Boston.
Japan makes for an unforgettable fall destination thanks to cooler temperatures and generally fine, dry weather. Witness the majesty of Mt. Fuji, often wearing its cap of snow by now. Explore ancient temples in Kyoto. Take photos of the sweeping views from the top of Mount Hakodate. Admire the fall colors of the woodlands around the Oirase stream in Aomori, and in contrast, enjoy the bright lights, retail opportunities, and exciting cuisine of Tokyo.
