Default Holiday Cruising

What are the benefits or disadvantages to sailing over a Holiday? We are thinking of doing a cruise over Thanksgiving and want to hear your opinions.

My DH and I, have done one Thanksgiving cruise and 4 or 5 New Years Eve cruises, but no Christmas cruises. The New Years Eve ones were great but cost about double what you would pay the previous week for the same cruise. I would only do the Thanksgiving cruise again, if my whole familly was along. Christmas the same thing; if my whole family was along, I would do a Christmas cruise. They cost more, but in regards to the NY Eve cruise, they're absolutely the most fun......and you don't have to worry about driving home.
Happy Cruising....Anita

There tends to be a lot more children traveling over holidays as that's when they are on vacation from school. If you have kids this is a great time to go. If you are looking to cruise when they're aren't many children you should probably avoid these times.

Hi Team,
Like the others said, you'll find more families/kids on the holiday sailings and we too did a New Years cruise, which was great, but the cost factor just wasn't worth it. We just had to try it and I'm glad we did.

There is a Cruisemates Thanksgiving cruise that may interest you:

If it wasn't for my job, I'd love to try one of these out, good luck and happy cruising!
