Why Holiday Cruises Are the Best

Why Holiday Cruises Are the Best

The holiday season is a very fun time to cruise. Ships get into the spirit of the season, celebrating Christmas, Hanukkah and New Year’s with holiday displays, traditional food and various seasonal activities.

Taking a cruise over Christmas and New Year’s is an excellent idea, and here’s why:

No snow shoveling and pressure of entertaining relatives

Instead of shoveling snow at Christmas, entertaining the visiting relatives or unsuccessfully looking for a party on New Year’s, you could be drinking eggnog poolside and singing carols on deck, while overlooking the sea and simply enjoying the Holidays to the fullest. You’ll also be able to enjoy eating wonderful holiday meals, prepared by professional chefs and enjoying New Year’s Eve without worrying about what party you should attend, how to get home after the party is over, etc.

Festive cruising is unique

Cruising during the holiday season is anything but the typical week-at-sea experience you might find during less festive times of the year. Many cruise lines – staff and crew – usually embrace the holiday season with a cheery energy and investment that goes beyond the symbolic Christmas tree, occasional Santa appearances, elaborate turkey dinners and New Year’s Eve midnight countdowns. You would be surprised to see how well they are prepared to make you feel fantastic the entire time and to help you get into the holiday spirit in the most special way.

Why Holiday Cruises Are the Best

Experience the great holiday parties

You’ll be able to attend a raging New Year’s Eve bash with hundreds of people, live music and Champagne, and then just stumble down the hallway and be in your bed three minutes later. It’s quite difficult to think of a more perfect place where you could be at New Year, right?

Experience local celebrations

For many people, the main attraction of any cruise is getting off and exploring the ports. Well, it’s even more exciting to do that at this time of the year. Holiday decorations that you’ll encounter when visiting different islands, the Christmas music in the shops, Christmas lights and unique traditions will surely get you into the spirit of the season in its own special way.

Enjoy the ‘No Holiday Cooking’ experience

Dining options are extremely many on any cruise, and holiday cruises usually have even more food options than usually. Festive goodies are also generally available at the buffet, including the traditional holiday cookies and pumpkin pies. And, the best part of all is the fact that you won’t need to cook or clean up after any meal. You can just sit and relax, everything is done for you – you don’t need to lift a finger.

People on the cruise really get in the holiday spirit

Although it may seem odd to think that you can get into the holiday spirit with some strangers, the truth is that when it comes to the festive season people on a cruise know how to enjoy it to the fullest and how to include each other in celebrating together even if they have never met before. A holiday cruise is like this unique experience one should have at least once in a lifetime.

So, if you haven’t decided how you’re going to spend the holidays yet, here’s your chance to make the final decision: find a holiday cruise and just go for it, you’ll love it.

The Great Benefits of Going on Holiday for Christmas

The Great Benefits of Going on Holiday for Christmas

With the holidays just around the corner, most of us are already planning how and with whom we are going to spend our Holiday season.

Although most people love the Holiday traditions and enjoy the Holiday preparations, more and more people are considering cruising at Christmas.

As it turns out there are a number of benefits to going on holiday over Christmas and here are some you should definitely consider:

Skip the long lines at grocery stores

Regardless of how many things you shop in advance, or how much you prepare, you’ll still end up at the grocery store along with everyone else to pick up your last minute shopping for your Christmas dinner.

You’ll be ready just in time for Christmas

In case you’ve decided to leave a couple of days before Christmas, you’ll be somehow forced to make sure everything is prepared in advance – which will lead to being ready with the presents and everything else just in time for Christmas.

No more hard work and stress to please everyone

Being with family and friends at Christmas is a wonderful thing; however being able to fit everyone in your home and prepare everything can be quite a challenge and stress factor. Obviously, you’ll have to do a lot of cleaning and laundry, and cooking before everyone arrives and then of course you’ll have lots more cleaning and laundry to do once they leave.
But, going on a family holiday over Christmas means that somebody else does your laundry and cleaning and you just get to sit back, relax and enjoy everyone’s company.

You’ll have Christmas dinner ready without you even lifting a finger

Cooking a Christmas dinner for the whole family takes a lot of planning, coordination, time and effort. Having someone else do this for you allows you to enjoy Christmas with your family and you don’t even have to do the dishes after.

No winter for a while

Some people believe that a real Christmas must be a white Christmas. Well, not me. I like summer and warm weather. Besides, winter and snow will still be there when you get back from your cruise.

Find a good deal for your holiday

I love cruising, warm weather and luxurious conditions, so my recommendation is to visit Galapagos Islands – it’s very beautiful and you’ll end up having the most relaxing, luxurious holiday.
