Why a Christmas Cruise is a Great Idea for Families

Many families look for unique ways to spend the holidays and cruises offer a no-effort option for holiday festivities. Cruisers need to just bring along a few gifts and the rest of the planning will be handled by the staff on the ship. There are no trees to put up and no huge amounts of wrapping. Some cruise ships let you buy a small tree with decorations for your room. No cooking and cleaning, and all the comforts of home, what else could you ask for? Most cruise lines decorate beautifully for the holiday season. Some even bring snow machines on board so that guests can enjoy a white Christmas while at sea, and Santa makes an appearance on many ships. Special seasonal meals are also provided, so you do not miss the Christmas dinner. There is even Church services on many of the ships. Then there are the celebrations that you might find at the islands or ports you are visiting. It is always best to check if anything is going on.

If you live in a cold area of the country, there is nothing better than sipping a nice cool colada as you sail on a catamaran, or lounge by the beach with your loved ones, while it is cold and maybe snowing in your neck of the woods. For a stress-free, leave-the-work-to-someone-else Christmas, a cruise is a perfect option.

 I am not sure I could ever do a Holiday Christmas cruise. My husband would never go for it since he wouldn't have his entire family there. I think it would be fun if everyone would go....What do you guys think? Have you done it? How did it go? Are you considering it?

I think Christmas is so steeped in traditions with family that it would be difficult to break the pattern and go on a cruise. I would love to do it someday, but I think the reality is that I won't. I love to cruise in the winter months, it's a great break to have a week of pampering on a beautiful ship and to be able to visit many different tropical destinations.
