Christmas and New Years Cruises: 5 Reasons Why You Should Do It

Posted December 15th, 2014

For a unique holiday experience, celebrate the festive season out at sea with your loved ones and forget about having to lift a finger, slave away at a hot stove or queue up for a taxi. Instead, be pampered on board your luxurious cruise ship, travel to new and exciting destinations, and take part in some fun, merry Christmas and New Years cruises.

A Christmas cruise is the perfect way to spend the holiday season!

The Atmosphere

When you step aboard your Christmas cruise ship, be prepared to be wowed by decorations galore. Wreaths, Christmas trees and mistletoe all make an appearance, while Carol singers and Christmas-themed costumes will abound. Even Scrooge himself would be won over by the festive and joyous atmosphere!

Gorge on World-class Cuisine

We’re not saying that the food served at your home on Christmas day is anything less than spectacular. However, on a cruise, you can indulge in a range of world-class cuisine that is sure to tickle your taste buds. From mouth-watering buffets to specialty restaurants onboard serving anything from Italian to Asian, you certainly won’t be going hungry whilst sailing the seven seas. On the day that Santa visits, you’ll be treated to a special dinner featuring all the traditional favourites. The best part? The food comes straight to you, so you can say adios to hours of time spent cooking and preparing.

No need to spend hours cooking on Christmas day... have it all done for you!

Celebrate in Style

Forget about where you’ve waved in the New Year before. Nothing beats celebrating a new year whilst out at sea with your fellow passengers. You can expect one big bash on New Year’s Eve, complete with confetti, champagne, party poppers, live music and plenty of dancing. Hop from party to party and take in all the different styles of celebration, from Black Tie to a more casual affair.

No Need to Drive Home

Don’t you hate having to pre-plan how you’re going to get home on Christmas Day or NYE? It’s a royal pain and everyone deserves to be able to let their hair down at least once or twice a year, right? Well hop aboard a cruise ship for the holiday period and throw this worry overboard. Celebrate the New Year in style, have fun with your loved ones, and then return to your cabin to sleep it all off. Then wake up and have breakfast served for you the next day. It’s an amazing way to start the new year!

No Need to Clean or Do the Dishes

Hosting a party at your home does have its own advantages. You get to show your friends and family how much you care for them, you get to entertain on your terms, and you don’t have to drive home. But for all that, there are some disadvantages to playing party host. Case in point: you’ll need to clean and do the dishes on that dreaded next day. And we don’t imagine that will be a lot of fun at all. But spend your Christmas and NYE on a cruise ship and you won’t have to lift a finger – bar the amount of force required to call up room service!
