Just booked a cruise over Christmas on the ship "Holiday". Do the ships get decorated for the Christmas holidays?

Yes they do! We have been on the Paradise and the Elation over the Christmas holidays. There is garland decorating the atrium and other items on the Promenade deck and throughout the ship.
I'll include a link to our photo's from the Elation so you can get an idea of what I'm talking out.

Enjoy your cruise!

I was on the Conquest and Valor both in the beginning of Dec. (different years!) and they were both decorated for the holidays...The Conquest was also decorated for Haunkkah. Also the last show was a Christmas Show and involved the kids from camp carnival.

I was on Rhapsody a week before Christmas and it was beautiful. The next year I was on Grand Princess the week following Thanksgiving and was expecting it to be decorated and it wasn't! As we were disembarking they were busy hanging miles and miles of garland. I'm sorry we were not able to see it decorated because the Princess is such a beautiful ship.

Aaaahhhh, I can hear the Christmas carols. Oh wait, it's only August!
