As each year draws to a close, Princess guests look forward to enjoying the sights and sounds of the holiday season, those age-old traditions of Christmas, Hanukkah and New Year's ... as they visit exotic locales, soak up the sun and participate in the many other activities a cruise has to offer. The ease with which Princess enables guests to enjoy these special days has made the holidays one of the most popular times to take a seagoing vacation, as Princess ships make the season particularly festive.
Princess' fleet offers a wide range of Christmas and New Year's cruises across the globe each year, typically sailing to the Caribbean, Panama Canal, Australia/ New Zealand, South America and the South Pacific during this holiday period.
A Merry Christmas at Sea
It's not hard to get into the Christmas spirit right from the start, as ships are trimmed from stem to stern in festive holiday decor, complete with wreaths, holly, mistletoe and, of course, Christmas trees, which often even decorate the ship's mast. It's not uncommon to see Yuletide carolers strolling the decks singing favorite holiday tunes, or waiters wearing Santa hats. Seasonal entertainment abounds, as guests may enjoy themed production shows, live music and films during the voyage. Guests can also attend Catholic mass and inter-denominational church service.
A special Christmas dinner features traditional favorites such as roast turkey or goose, and guests will enjoy a range of seasonal sweet treats such as gingerbread mousse, mincemeat pie, chocolate Yule logs and special Christmas cookies.
With kids out of school, holiday cruises have become a popular getaway for families. And to keep younger guests busy, youth counselors provide a wide array of activities including parties, sing-a-longs and arts and crafts classes, where they can create ornaments to decorate the ship's Christmas tree. Junior cruisers can also participate in an endearing holiday play, which they perform for guests. On Christmas day, Santa Claus makes a surprise appearance, bringing joy (and gifts) to each child on board.
For guests who celebrate Hanukkah, a special area of the ship is reserved for those participating in services, and ships display menorahs and fresh flower arrangements decorated in the Hanukkah colors of blue, silver and white. Kosher meals are available throughout the sailing when requested in advance, and dining rooms feature specialty items such as potato latkes, matzo ball soup, gefilte fish and matzo during the holiday.
Ringing in the New Year
Princess ships welcome each new year in style with a fun-filled New Year's Eve party complete with music, confetti, noise-makers and, of course, champagne to join the ship staff in a toast to the arrival of January 1. These always-popular festivities can range from casual to black-tie affairs, depending on the ship and itinerary.
And once the new year arrives, football fans will be pleased to know they won't miss the day's traditional college bowl games, as the telecasts will be shown (if available) in a shipboard lounge, complete with a full buffet of "munchies" such as popcorn, chips, mini hot dogs or burgers and other assorted goodies.
In all, Princess' holiday cruises are the perfect way to enjoy a joyful and stress free "what you want, when you want" holiday away from the usual hustle and bustle of the season.good deeds soundtrack amazon good deeds llc prince good deeds movie called good deeds list of good deeds to do for others quotes about good deeds from the bible tyler perry good deeds quotes good deeds done without kindness sayings about doing good deeds good deeds box office sales watch tyler perry's good deeds full movie clifford's good deeds [book] all good deeds quote tyler perry no good deeds good thoughts good words good deeds tattoo thomas and friends henry's good deeds do good deeds in private 10 good deeds to do good deeds to do at christmas good deeds quote good deeds celebrities do no good deeds free good deeds pembroke ma good deeds pembroke movies no good deeds good thoughts, good words, good deeds bohemian rhapsody doing good deeds meaning good deeds good design community service through architecture tyler perry's good deeds cast good deeds pembroke ma hours no good deeds tyler perry christmas good deeds good deeds calendar meaning of good deeds in english good deeds a child can do why is good deeds at first unable to accompany everyman tyler perry full movie good deeds donald trump good deeds fact check bible verse about not bragging about good deeds good deeds pembroke good deeds movie cast good deeds and such monologue christopher columbus good deeds good deeds delivery good deeds book trailer no good deeds 100 good deeds necklace three good deeds by vivian vande velde good deeds bad deeds good deeds to others doing good deeds for selfish reasons good deeds by donald trump bible verse about boasting about good deeds good deeds movie reviews good deeds dvd one sin and hundreds of good deeds nelson mandela good deeds deeds good tyler perry good deeds characters does god reward good deeds pablo escobar good deeds george michael good deeds tyler perry new movie good deeds dvd release date the words "good words, good thoughts, good deeds" were used to sum up the view of morality of the no good deeds torrent the good deeds movie sims 4 good deeds badge tyler perry good deeds trailer good deeds society mn ring of good deeds news good deeds good deeds done by donald trump good deeds cartoon good deeds actors good deeds celebrities do when will good deeds be released on dvd bible verse good deeds in secret good deeds free movie good deeds for kids quran good deeds bragging about good deeds quotes sims 4 good deeds good deeds done without kindness tyler perry good deeds dvd release love and good deeds 1000 good deeds what does the bible say about doing good deeds good deeds movie release date bragging about good deeds eddie cibrian good deeds bible verse about bragging about your good deeds kevin hart good deeds tyler perry new movie good deeds release date russian car camera good deeds pictures of people doing good deeds good deeds don't go unpunished word for does good deeds no good deeds dvd tyler perry good deeds dancing to tupac no good deeds movie good deeds of kane of old guy tyler perry good deeds movies an afternoon of good deeds zoroastrianism good thoughts, good deeds bible verse about boasting about good deeds clifford's good deeds
