Best Time to Cruise
Cruise ships operate in the warm Singapore region all year round, but it may be best to avoid the wet monsoon season between June and October as this is the time for typhoons and choppy seas. Further north towards Hong Kong, the best time would depend on the weather – again avoid the monsoon months.

Best Time to Book
The best time to book is as early as possible in order to secure a good price and some cruise lines have early bird discounts. It is also possible to get good discounts as the sail date draws near, but then chances are you may not get the cabin of your choice.
