Funtastic Christmas Cruises

Have you ever dreamed of celebrating Christmas at sea? You should — on a Carnival cruise! These cheerful getaways are some of our most popular cruises. And it’s no wonder — every ship is decked out, bow-to-stern, with wreaths, lights, Christmas trees… and ooh, mistletoe! There’s even a special mailbox for letters to Santa.

Guests will gather for caroling around the tree. Fashionistas can try their luck in an Ugly Sweater Competition. And an extra-special, live-on-stage Holiday Show puts everyone in the spirit.

Whether it’s a Christmas service or a Hanukkah service with nightly menorah lighting at sunset, guests are welcome to celebrate their holiday with family and friends.

And in the spirit of Grinchmas — the only one at sea — you’re in for lots of extra fun! Taking a page from Dr. Seuss’ classic book, The Grinch himself will join you at sea during this most merry time. He’ll make surprise appearances throughout your vacation, so keep your eyes peeled. If you don’t catch him, catch his live holiday show and character breakfast.

“Not-home-for-the-holidays” has kind of a nice ring to it, wouldn’t you agree?


Funtastic Christmas cruises also include all the fun of a typical Carnival cruise.
