Christmas and New Year are an extremely special time of year, which require the celebration to match. So what better way to make the most of the festive season, than with a Christmas or New Year cruise?

After a long year, relaxing and letting someone else do the work is well and truly deserved, so why not this year let Celebrity Cruises® put up the decorations, make the traditional meals and take care of all the details? All so you can simply spend it onboard with those that matter most, take it all in, and best of all, experience Christmas and New Year in some incredible destinations!

It goes without saying that a Christmas cruise around the Caribbean, Australia or even the Galapagos Islands will be one to remember – and not just because you’ll be trading the cold temperatures of the UK for sun kissed landscapes. It’s also because you’ll be exploring new cultures, seeing wildlife straight out of Planet Earth and eating the local festive treats.

As for a New Year’s cruise, you’ll have the choice of popping a cork with us onboard your ship or celebrating in the heart of your destination, the choice is yours. It doesn’t get much better than welcoming the New Year by clinking glasses on the top deck, or with the locals on the other side of the world. For a festive season to remember, a Celebrity cruise is as good as it gets!




Discover our top destinations for Christmas and New Year cruises.

If you’re looking to escape the winter chill this festive period, then our choice of Winter cruises are just what you’re searching for. Swapping shivers for tropical sunshine, lush rainforests and more.

One of the most popular choices during the period is a Caribbean cruise, taking you on an adventure of the likes of Bermuda, Jamaica and of course, the Bahamas. You’ll always remember the Christmas you swapped a traditional tree for a palm tree!

Talking of trees, the vast rainforests of Asia are another top choice, with everything from the cuisine to the rich history and culture, making it an unforgettable send off to the year.

For some, however, Christmas and New Year’s aren’t complete without a spot of shopping, and while all of our other destinations come with their own shopping delights, Dubai sits at the top of the list. Bringing luxury in troves and mixing it with its spectacular bazaars. If you’re short on a gift or two, then you couldn’t pick a better destination ! Wherever in the world you choose for your winter cruise, we'll take you there in style.
