Default Family cruise for next Christmas - your ideas.

My husband and two sons 10 and 14 are looking for a cruise for next Christmas holidays. We did a West Caribbean last year and are going to Alaska in August. We need a great deal because this is getting expensive and we need airfare from Toronto Canada as well. What do you suggest???

Hello. I went on a southern caribbean cruise during Christmas week several years ago. The weather was wonderful, but the ocean was cooler and rougher than in summer. The water in Barbados was a little warmer as we were farther south. It was a lot of fun because the ship (we went on Norwegian) was wonderfully decorated with Christmas lights and trees.

We arrived in Port on Christmas morning in St. Kitts and there was a native steel drum band dressed like Santa and his elves playing Jingle Bells as we slowly pulled up to the dock. It was fantastic!

I would definitely do the southern caribbean as this itenerary is only available during winter months. You can always do eastern/western any time of year.

Two years ago we took an Xmas cruise on the RCI Monarch of the Seas..
The ship went out of San Juan. We had a blast, my kids 18, 16 and 11 had the time of their lives.

It was a Christmas, that none of us will forget.

If you want to get a good deal, my advise would be, to wait till the last minute. Thats what we did and we got a great deal.

If you send me your e-mail I will give you some more help.
