Tips for Cruising at Christmas

You may have decided that Christmas at home isn’t such a good idea this year, and if you do feel like this, then please don’t feel guilty! This is becoming the thought process of an increasing number of people who opt to spend the festive period away from the kitchen, fuss and annual arguments by cruising at Christmas.

What are the best all inclusive Caribbean resorts to visit?

There are a plethora of all inclusive Caribbean resorts available, ranging from the Dominican Republic and Sandals Resort Barbados to Couples Resort Jamaica, Coconut Bay and Trinidad & Tobago, among others. And just because it’s Christmas, that doesn’t mean that you don’t get to celebrate it. You just have to embrace the local culture and do it in Caribbean style!

Christmas carols can be heard across the islands as locals perform them on steel drums, and there are plenty of holiday-themed carnivals and festivals, such as the Junkanoo Parade in the Bahamas, which takes place on Boxing Day. In fact, no matter where you decide to take your Christmas cruise, all ships get into the festive spirit and provide celebrations for all to enjoy across the Christmas and New Year Period.

Traditional Food with All the Trimmings

Not only will you get a Christmas tree on board, but the food is traditional and plentiful, carol singing is a common occurrence and you might even get a visit from the big man himself as ‘Santa’ comes to sea rather than the town. You can still have the celebration of Christmas, but it just won’t be you doing the cooking, organising and dishing up!

There are plenty of decisions to be made when booking a Christmas cruise – not least the ship you want to go on and your intended destination – and has plenty of information on this. You can also specify if you want an adults-only cruise and can pick from destinations which are incredibly hot or very cold – the decision is yours.

Whatever you decide to do this Christmas, you could always take a little bit of Christmas at home with you in the shape of Christmas crackers to pull on Christmas morning. It’s also a nice gesture to pack little gifts for the staff on the ship. After all, they are spending their Christmas with you instead of their families.
