Celebrating Christmas Abroad
The festive season is on its way and most of us are probably aware of the accompanying stress that the period can bring. From buying the turkey to spending time with the in-laws, sometimes Christmas can feel like more trouble than it’s actually worth. That’s why more and more people are taking a new approach to the festive holiday season by booking a cruise holiday and spending Christmas abroad. Yet cruising away from a stressful Christmas doesn’t mean you need to neglect customs, nor does it need to cost you an arm and a leg. Here’s how you can enjoy a traditional and affordable Christmas celebration abroad with all inclusive holidays on a cruise ship.
We all love the festive season, but Christmas time doesn’t need to mean grim weather forecasts. This year why not opt for a bit of sunshine and vitamin D in your Christmas stocking? There are countless cruise destinations that are less about slush and sleet and more about cocktails by the poolside. Winter is the perfect time to book Florida holidays that offer beautiful weather and calmer seas. If you prefer to sail closer to home, cruise holidays to the Greek islands, such as Kos, offer sunny conditions and fewer crowds than the busy summer season. If the sunnier spots don’t take your fancy, you can opt for a more traditional Christmas getaway. Why not set sail for some of Europe’s most idyllic winter wonderlands, such as Amsterdam and Bruges – where you can enjoy delicious mulled wine whilst strolling through the cheerful Christmas markets.
Festive cheer on board
Cruising to a warm destination doesn’t need to mean the end of your festive spirit. With a cruise getaway you can have your Christmas cake and eat it too, getting the best of both worlds. Create the atmosphere of a traditional winter wonderland onboard, and escape the chilly conditions when docking at some of Europe’s most sought after sunny locations. Cruise ship providers might specialise in roaming the world, but they know just what makes a British Christmas so special. At a cruise ship Christmas dinner you can expect turkey and all of the trimmings, without having to step foot into the kitchen at all. Best of all, the all-inclusive holiday style cruises offer a fantastic way of holidaying affordably with the whole family. So, whether you’re after cheap holidays in Spain, the Far East or even the States, cruise holidays can take your whole family there without straining the budget. Now all you need to do is pack the presents!
