CRUISES: Seasonal ocean and river cruises
How about Christmas on the ocean waves? For a different slant on your Christmas celebrations or New Year break why not take a look at ocean or river cruises?
A seasonal ocean cruise can offers the unique experience of Christmas day at sea, with fabulous food, festive fun and seasonal entertainment all laid on. Perhaps a festive themed cruise around Great Britain and Ireland, celebrating Hogmanay in Edinburgh; a Canaries Christmas/New Year sailing from Southampton; or a classic Mediterranean cruise with Christmas aboard.
Seasonal river cruises explore the brightly lit towns of the Rhine taking in European Christmas markets such as Aalborg, Copenhagen or Hamburg, or offer the chance to admire New Year's Eve fireworks over Koblenz.
