Has anyone out there gone on a cruise during the Christmas holiday? If so how did it go. Did it feel like Christmas? We are really looking forward to the trip! We are taking off on 20 December, it is a 7 night cruise. We will be on Voyager of the Seas.

I am going on that cruise with my family. I am hoping there are Christmas activities for my kids.

I haven't been on a Christmas cruise, but I have been on the Voyager...You will have a grand time....don't miss the ice show or the evening shows....When we were on her, they brought in Charo for a one night performance....what a treat that was....
Happy Cruising...

Bob, we had Charo on our last cruise in April. When we were standing in line on boarding day in San Juan, my wife and another lady spotted her and a group being wisked up the esclator and on board. She did a one nighter and turned out to be quite an entertainer; didn't know that she was such an accomplished classical guitarist. That was the best part of her show, although she is very funny.

My wife and I took a Christmas cruise on the Voyager two years ago—it was GREAT!

Hey Sonny, thanks for the beautiful picture! I wish I did not have to wait 6 months as I am very ready to go! Is the weather pretty mild, (warm)?
Side note: I am originally from WI, western part of the state in cranberry country!
Thanks Again!

Christmas/New Year's cruises are fantastic. Last year, we had carolers singing in the atrium, the ship was decorated beautifully, and Santa came to greet everyone. We had stockings in our room with some goodies inside. It is a fantastic way to spend Christmas. I must prefer not freezing!

OliverR, welcome to Cruise-Chat. I didn't see you sneak in They will have Santa and things for the children. It is a great way to spend the holidays!

I was wondering about the dress on a Christmas cruise to Mexico and Jamaica. Is it very cold? Do people wear christmas/winter colors or bright summer clothes? Also, is there a special christmas dinner where you dress up.

OliverR, the weather is normally: highs in the 80s, lows in the upper 70s. Bring a light jacket just in case a storm blows through. Christmas dinner, the waiters/assistants will be dressed with Santa hats or Elf hats, and usually a red or green vest. They will normally have turkey/dressing and ham for selections with a fish, lamb, or pork choice as well. You will find a wide range of outfits on board. If it happens to fall on a formal night, then folks will dress up. If not, they'll just be in casual dress. Some will wear Christmas sweaters. Unfortunately, it seems like the days of the tuxedoes and dinner jackets have gone by the wayside. We do have a section on dress codes in our FAQ for the "official" cruise line statements.

Most everyone brings island color clothes, florals, prints, pastels, but you will see a bit of everything. Including some things you wish you hadn't seen They do have a church service in the morning, sometimes more than one. Usually it's a nondenominational service, but sometimes they will do a mass too.

I always bring a sweather with me, because I freeze in the public areas. I also always take a light raincoat jacket, just in case. 90% of the time I don't need the raincoat. I always need the sweater at dinner, shows, and casino. But I am a weenie, if it's below 80, I'm cold.
