Revel in festive cheer

Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year. So why not leave the household chores behind and celebrate Christmas in style aboard a luxury cruise ship?

Imagine waking up on Christmas morning in the splendid surroundings of a sumptuous stateroom in the Caribbean Sea, the Mediterranean or Dubai where the sun beams down and the crystal clear water reflects the clear blue sky. Without the worry of preparing a traditional Christmas dinner you can enjoy a leisurely breakfast, a relaxing soak in the tub, a conversation with newfound friends or simply sit back, relax and revel in the festivities of the holiday season.

Enjoy watching the attentive staff make the magic happen as you sit around the traditionally decorated Christmas tree, swapping gifts with your loved ones. Make Christmas decorations, learn Christmas carols and decorate gingerbread houses together with fellow guests and crew.

Traditional Christmas dinner on board

After spending the day shopping, being pampered in the spa or simply relaxing in the sun, it’s time for traditional Christmas dinner. Glittering silverware reflects the beautiful Christmas tree adorned with traditional decorations as smiling waiters wish you the compliments of the season and deliver a banquet, with course after course of delicious food. Expect a feast of roast Norfolk turkey with all the trimmings and traditional Christmas pudding on a Cunard Christmas cruise, thrilling pre and post dinner entertainment on a Fred. Olsen festive cruise or traditional Norwegian julgrot (Christmas porridge!) on a Hurtigruten winter cruise.

Best of all, there’s no tidying and washing up following the festivities – you can simply retire to your suite, join friends for a relaxing drink in one of the ship’s stylish bars or relish in the on board entertainment.

On board Christmas entertainment

Feeling full after your turkey? On P&O Christmas cruises, Christmas films are shown in on-board cinemas and on in-cabin TVs, so you have the option to watch a timeless tale amongst friends or relax in front of a classic family cartoon in your suite. Find festivities for the whole family on board Holland America Line, where children can make seasonal crafts and visit Santa and the adults can celebrate during the Christmas Eve Party. And on Princess Cruises you can play in the snow in the Atrium!

Christmas cruises in Europe

If you’re tempted by a Christmas cruise but not quite ready to give up the traditions of a European Christmas, why not set sail for some of the world’s most festive cities? Browse the grand Christmas markets in Germany, see the sparkling lights in Stockholm and indulge in festive food in Amsterdam. There are plenty of December cruise itineraries designed to bring you yuletide joy.

Singles Christmas cruise

Although travelling with friends and family is great, there’s nothing quite like solo travelling. Don’t let Christmas hold you back from booking a solo cruise – you have the freedom to choose exactly what you want! Travel in style aboard a luxury cruise, celebrate the festive season with fellow single travellers and toast to a new year with new-found friends. We have a vast range of solo Christmas cruises to delight you this festive season.

New Year cruises

To continue the celebrations, why not cruise over New Year’s Eve? Sit down to a magnificent banquet, sample the world’s finest wines and dine in style with your fellow travellers. So, what will it be? Bikinis and flip flops or jumpers and woolly socks? View our Christmas cruises here.
