Escape the Christmas Crush: Cruise Away With Us!

Posted December 16th, 2013

December has struck. Crowds flit under decorations, snapping up hard to find bargains and string a million scatterings of twinkling lights over their windowsills, heralding an ever-festive season. Last minute decisions become emergency shopping expeditions and catering for twenty five plus people challenges your patience to the very last bite. Exhausted by the thought?

You aren’t the only one. Celebrating Christmas, Yule or Santa Claus day aboard a floating vessel of perfectly cooked meals, relaxing revelries and exciting shore excursions, removes the expectation of a perfectly hosted party. Forget about Aunt Mandy’s potato salad, your mother-in-law’s preference for clean skins and a mountain of dirty dishes, piled in wait for your tired hands.

Escape the Christmas Crush with a Christmas Cruise!

Next year, leave all of this behind and make Christmas about you! No cleans ups, no pressure, no cooking, no cleaning, no worries.

Island Dreaming

Are you ready to trade up your burning stove and wilted greens? Cart the kids off to Nan’s for a week or bid goodbye to family responsibility next Christmas season, embarking on a relaxing holiday on the azure oceans of our backyard. P&O have a pleasing stocking filler, charging from $1,849* per person twin share for ten nights aboard the resplendent Pacific Pearl. Days at sea (and there will be a few) can be sampling the delights of the tantalising cruise restaurants and bars, spinning the night away on the dance floor, catching a show, taking a run, enjoying a spa treatment or just lazing by the pool, under the summer sun.

Cruise the islands with Pacific Pearl

Ports: Noumea, Lifou, Vila, Mystery Island and Isle of Pines
Dates: 17th of December to the 27th of December

What Cruisers Are Saying:

“The best value for money you can get. The food was great. Entertainment was fantastic. A well-equipped gym. Cabins were neat and clean. Cabin stewards did a great job tidying our rooms. For first time cruisers my wife and I had a great time.”


Be Treated Like Royalty

Princess Cruises loves the casual beauty of our Australian ports, but why not take an overseas trip with a difference this yuletide season, with an eleven day jaunt of the Southern Caribbean, sailing forth on the luxurious Royal Princess? With prices starting at $1770 twin share, you’ll be jet setting into the wild blue yonder in a matter of days; forget about budget vacations and last minute, dingy hotels, the Royal Princess is a majestic vessel, packed with every creature comfort and wish your heart, body and mind could chase through the staccato painted corridors.

Be treated like Royalty on your Princess Christmas Cruise!

You’ll have trouble tearing yourself away from the delectable dining options, shimmering swimming pools, energetic dance classes and more bars than you can poke a cocktail swizzle stick at. Heaven on water.

Ports: Princess Cays, St Thomas, Dominica, Grenada, Aruba, Fort Lauderdale
Dates: 19th of December to 29th of December

What Cruisers Are Saying:

Everyone greets you with a smile. The staff are genuinely pleased to make your stay on the Royal Princess enjoyable and memorable. The food was amazing, don’t miss the Sterling Steakhouse!
