Why You Should Spend the Holidays at Sea

Royal Caribbean will make your spirits merrier and brighter.

This year, take a break from the usual routine and carve out a new holiday tradition—at sea. Imagine this: Every detail taken care of—from tidying up your room twice a day to enjoying the ultimate holiday dinner—without you having to lift a finger. A holiday cruise is all about taking care of time-consuming tasks so that you can maximize your quality time, and spend each day the way you want to spend it. You’ll easily get into the spirit with Deck the Holidays, Royal Caribbean’s biggest celebration at sea.

Throughout December, on any Caribbean cruise, guests can enjoy festivities that include special appearances by Santa’s elves, gingerbread-cookie decoratingfamily story time and much more.. Each ship will also host tree and menorah-lighting ceremonies, and every Centrum, Royal Esplanade or Royal Promenade—the center for fun and thrills—will be transformed into a winter wonderland. You can also join us on deck for a walk in support of the World Wildlife Fund’s arctic programs.

While on board, look for the Holly Jolly Holiday Parade, festive photo opportunities, caroling, holiday movie screenings at our AquaTheater (wear your pjs!), craft making and games for all ages. Cap it all off with New Year’s On Deck, the celebration you can’t miss, featuring favors at every venue, private parties and the exciting ball drop in the main Promenade, Esplanade or Centrum (for sailings that go through January 1 or beyond).

Holidays cruises range in length from three to seven nights and are bound for destinations including the Bahamas, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, Mexico and more. To check it out and learn more, as well as to browse itineraries, head here.
