Most if not all mass market cruiselines will decorate their ships for the holidays as well as the other passengers celebrating christmas with their familes...... Don't think you will be able to escape it.

Whatever ship you sail, there will be decorations, just like on land, you can't escape it, but, you can ignore it. The two holiday sailings I was on, the decorations, were not overt. If you choose to dine at a large table people, there will probably be some discussion of the holiday, at some point, but, once the initial discussion, I would tend to think it wouldn't continue much beyond that, unless, they seat Santa at your table.<VBG>
Sorry, couldn't resist.
Trip, with her book & tea!

When we did the Panama over Xmas , DW found the music and decorations to over welling . Continuous fro Port Everglades to LA . I like the Xmas period but the music was over done. A couple of songs where played most of the time . If they where classical Xmas music but they seemed like a lot of off beat versions of the carols.

You want to get away from Christmas, sounds like the plot for a TV holiday movie.
Anyway if you truly want to escape Christmas you might want to consider a land trip to a country with am majority religion such as Islam, Hinduism or Buddhism. How about Bali?

The one time that I did a Christmas cruise, it was very low key and understated. The only thing that really got my attention was seeing Santa get off the tender at the private island. That was funny!
