Here you will be able to compare the world’s best cruise line ships offers in their Christmas and New Years cruise itinerary schedule (December Holidays departures and ports of call arrival dates), and their “Holiday special” rates per person.

No matter what type of travel you prefer – the expensive “all-inclusive luxury” or the “discounted cheap”, Christmas and New Year cruise deals offer the perfect combination of the three most popular best buys – holiday, travel, vacation. Traveling during December Holidays fully incorporates the “ultimate holiday” experience of the Xmas time and the always fun vacation cruising. Cruising is one of the best mini vacation ideas ever. It is also one of the cheapest ways to travel affordably and in style to top destinations, like the Caribbean, Europe (UK, Baltic, Canaries, Mediterranean), Asia, South America, Australia and New Zealand, even Africa.

Christmas and New Year Cruises

Christmas and New Year cruisesCombined Christmas and New Years Eve cruises are operated with longer and usually one-way itineraries. Depending on lines and destinations, your Xmas-NYE itinerary may vary as duration from 10 days up to a month, extending from early or mid-December through the early dates of January.Christmas New Year mini cruise deals offer round-trip itineraries with duration 4 up to 7 days, with departure dates close to or on December 25. These “mini break” specials are rare, but very popular in Europe, with departures mostly from England. Fly cruise Christmas New Year deals are relatively inexpensive Holiday package deals. This travel option features discounted airfare (one-way or roundtrip) mostly to Caribbean (Barbados, Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, or to ports in Florida, USA), to big Mediterranean ports (in Spain and Italy) and Africa (Egypt and Dubai).

2-week packages are usually on round-trips in the Caribbean. Itineraries include some of the region’s best port destinations, such as Cozumel and Costa Maya in Yucatan Mexico, The Bahamas with Nassau and the lines’ private islands (Coco Cay, Half Moon Cay, Castaway Cay), Jamaica, Puerto Rico, Barbados, BVI. The Caribbean fly cruise deals from UK to Barbados are another top-seller during Christmas.

Christmas New Year Cruise Destinations

If you plan to spend at least a little bit of the year’s most festive season at sea splurging on Christmas and/or New Years Eve voyages, first thing you should know is that all major cruise companies will work very very hard to ensure their guests enjoy big-time the “maritime” Xmas spirit – fleetwide, and throughout the whole Holiday season.

The list of irresistibly popular Xmas-NYE cruise travel destinations starts always with the sunny Caribbean (departures from Florida mostly), followed by the Mexican Riviera (from California) and Australia. And these are best choices not only for “refugees” from the UK’s dreary winter weather. I mean, how many of us are able to resist the temptation of having an exotic cocktail on a pure magically white (but warm white) Xmas beach – a whole Universe away from the snowy cold Xmas at home?

Another interesting destination with relatively inexpensive Xmas Holiday cruise prices is the Mediterranean. There, you can enjoy sightseeing guided tours in beautiful and charmingly big ports and cities, with fewer tourists compared to the summer time. Med cruise vacations in December offer more ashore time to explore museums and attractions without the long queues of the summer tourists there.

Christmas market cruises deals are some of the most traded in the Baltic countries, and particularly in Germany. There are combined sea and river cruise deals dedicated to the Europe’s best Christmas Market destinations. And when you think of Christmas Markets, first that comes to mind is the Xmas shopping for traditional (hopefully not China-manufactured) handcrafted gifts, locally made souvenirs, the traditional Xmas treats in all the itinerary’s ports of call.

The Spain’s Canaries and the Portugal’s Madeira are also immensely popular island destinations. These are best price choices for cruises on Christmas and New Year on ships departing from UK ports (Southampton, Dover, Harwich). The so cheap Canary Islands food and drinks, and the stunning fireworks in Funchal are just the tip of the “pleasure iceberg” sinking so many “money ships” there each year.

Christmas – New Year Cruise Deals

Christmas and New Year cruise deals
Read below some of the best answers to the question why the generally so not cheap Christmas and New Years Eve cruise deals are still the best package offers for the Holidays:

  • First of all, most people got some money left (of put aside) to be spent at the year’s end. And we’re talking about big spending, like there’s no tomorrow. No better way to spend your vacation money than a Christmas cruise – it is fun! This is the most expensive time of the whole year, marked by huge demand, huge crowds of travelers hungry for their crazy-fun Holiday vacation, splurging frenzy everywhere.
  • No snow means the world for so many many thousands of travelers! There’s no better time to enjoy tropical climates than during the cold winter months. Go travel to sunny destination, like Caribbean (Bahamas from Florida is the cheapest), Mexico (both Western Caribbean and the Mexican Riviera), Hawaii. Southeast Asia and Australia are quite popular lately. Make sandmen instead of snowmen, drink icy cocktails instead of hot punch – well, you got the general idea, right?
  • The next one is the ship festivity itself. All cruise ships look totally festive during the December holiday season. The so many Xmas specials make December one of the best months for travel. On Xmas cruises, ships will be surely decorated properly. Think of impressively amazing decorations, themed deck parties, gala dinners with special dining menus, many unique activities (including on shore excursions), not to forget the themed drinks. Add to this colorful picture thousands of sparkling lights, mini Christmas trees (all plastic, of course) and gingerbread houses in cabins. The “home like” festive decoration on the ship, both in staterooms and public areas, will be a true feast for the eyes. All major cruise line companies will make you feel like your money is perfectly well spend on fun – you can count on that!
  • The ultimate truth about cruises over Christmas and New Year’s Eve is that you will be free to enjoy the Holiday time. The biggest ever benefit of booking a December Holiday vacation is that you won’t be cooking, serving, washing dishes, entertaining guests. Be sure that dinner on board your Holiday ship will be sumptuous, gourmet, and beautifully presented in a most entertaining environment. Plus, you won’t be watching the “usual suspects” – all the TV stars and their so predictable Holiday TV programming after dinner. After your formal Christmas or New Year themed dinner, you’ll be entertained with only first class live productions and fresh looking young people.
  • Next is the family fun. Holiday cruise deals are “the choice” for families. All kinds of events and activities will be available on board your boat. They will be perfectly suitable for guests of all ages, delivering the best-fun experience at sea.
  • One of the main disadvantages of cruising over Xmas-NYE is the lower/limited availability, followed closely by the higher cruise tickets cost. This is simply the most profitable time for the lines /operators, and they want to get the most of it. Booking early is essential to secure your Holiday vacation fun – both as itinerary/destination and cabin category. Early Fall (October) is a good time to book your Christmas cruise deals. Early booking savings are generous, plus this is the very time when lines start promoting their holiday discount rates.
  • If you like to gamble, try your best luck with the last minute Christmas New Year cruise deals. They are not recommended for the faint in heart (overly serious won’t like it either). Still, they offer the very best prices on Holiday deals, marked by highly discounted rates, limited choice of cabins, very risky. Well, may be it’s not such a bad idea to check with a travel agency for advice on this one. But I totally like “last minute”. The feeling is always so good – to get a bargain on them expensive Holiday deals!
