Christmas Cruising 2021

Christmas Cruising 2021

Christmas is fast approaching!  The malls have their decorations out, calendars are filling up and we’re busy thinking about who will be coming to Christmas dinner and what we’ll do over the Christmas holidays.  It’s been a funny old year and for many of you, hopes of spending Christmas with loved ones have been dashed with closed borders. 

For others, we can feel that weird sort of mania starting to creep up on us.  Lists are starting to be made, recipes ear-marked and maybe the odd bit of resentment for the family member that always attends but doesn’t help much! 

Why not turn our thoughts instead to Christmas 2021?   Imagine that by then the borders are open, travel has resumed, the world is once more welcoming.  Will you be staying home or will you be setting sail ready to be waited on hand and foot, with Christmas dinner prepared for you and all the cleaning up taken care of?  Maybe you can see yourself at a big table surrounded by family, laughing, eating and drinking.  Or perhaps you’re dreaming of a low-key getaway with just you and your partner away from all the hysteria?

Either way, we’ve got some amazing cruise options that will have you enjoying Christmas 2021 in style.  Check out just a few of the options:
