Make Christmas a Cruisy Affair

Posted October 15th, 2015


Have you ever dreamt of a stress-free Christmas where you can relax and take in an unforgettable holiday experience? If so, it’s time for you to deck the decks and celebrate the festive season on a cruise. Take a look at the benefits of getting away on the seas, as well as the top cruises you can board to spend quality time with those you hold dearest.

Endless Entertainment

The holiday season is the perfect time to enjoy a range of activities, but it can be hard to make time to experience them all. On top of this, not every activity appeals to each member of the family, so it can be hard to keep everyone happy. On a cruise holiday, however, you have plenty of time to experience an abundance of varied activities. For those seeking thrills, many cruise ships offer impressive water slides, rock-climbing, wave-simulated surfing and bungee trampolining. For those seeking relaxation, family-friendly pools and hot tubs are fantastic options. The entire clan can enjoy theatrical shows and aerial performances, with most of these being Christmas-themed during the festive season. Some parades in particular feature Santa, and younger (or older!) cruisers can take a picture with him. Carolling is also very much accepted, and seasonal movies and sporting matches are viewable on in-room televisions and movie screens. Adults can enjoy holiday lounge parties, and families can decorate ornaments and Christmas biscuits together.

No Cooking or Clean Up

An undeniable bonus of spending Christmas on a cruise is leaving the cooking and cleaning to somebody else. Top restaurants offer holiday-inspired cuisine, including seasonal favourites like roasted turkey and Hanukkah traditional brisket with potato pancakes.

No Stress

Swap holiday stress with the incredible amenities available to you on your cruise. Work out the kinks before the new year begins with spa treatments. You can even avoid the shopping centre panic when it comes to finding gifts for your loved ones (or yourself!) during your cruise. Take advantage of duty-free shopping onboard with some fantastic shopping options available. Don’t worry if you’d like to attend a religious service for Christmas; many cruises offer services from priests, rabbis and reverends.

Unique Experiences on Top Cruises

As well as the unique experience of being on board a cruise, various port destinations provide festive memories to last a lifetime. Perhaps you’d like to toss your Christmas hat on the white sands of the Isle of Pines before diving into its crystal waters? Or maybe you’d like to explore the different ports of Australia. Carnival Legend and Carnival Spirit offer some fantastic destinations through Australia and the South Pacific. If you’d rather raise a glass of wine to the rich history of France, Russia, the Netherlands or Italy, Viking’s River Cruises are a fantastic option. These cruises specialise in sharing the Christmas experience, with incredible Christmas markets in some of its festive destinations.
