‘Tis the season to be jolly on a festive voyage. You will be treated to a luxurious onboard experience while exploring new and exciting destinations as you glide through crystal waters.

Raise a toast to new beginnings as you experience the thrill of the countdown to midnight and dance the night away under a blanket of stars on the deck. Enjoy a sumptuous Christmas dinner with all the tasty trimmings of the festive season. Relax and socialise as you sip on cocktails and reflect on the year that has passed and the one that lies ahead. Experience the wonder of strolling through international Christmas markets where glistening baubles and delightful decorations will light up your shopping experience.

There is no better way to truly relax, unwind and let go of the year than with a cruise holiday. From the minute you step aboard, let go of your worries as you slip into the capable hands of our professional and attentive staff who are at your service night and day. Take a break from party hosting and forget about messy clean ups. Instead, spend your days lounging by the pool or exploring the delights the ship has to offer. There is so much to do and enjoy, new people to meet, destinations to see, that every day is like opening a shiny Christmas gift.

While there is nothing wrong with tried-and-tested holiday traditions, a luxury voyage gives you and your loved ones the chance to make some new ones, along with a whole lot of memories. With activities and entertainment to suit young, old and everyone in between, a seasonal cruise offers that extra sprinkling of festive cheer. Moments of magic each and every day spent aboard.
