Default Christmas at sea

Does anyone know what may happen on the Carnival Splendor around Christmas time. My family will be on the ship this Christmas and we have never been away for the holidays before. Can anyone help me out with what we can expect.

Don't expect a "traditional Christmas". Expect LOTS of families!

I've found the people who return disappointed after Christmas cruises, are those who thought Christmas would be "the same" at sea. It's not. The ships are beautifully decorated, and they do have fun with appearances by Santa, and carolling, and offer a religious service of sorts.

The down side is it's a difficult time for staff and crew because while it's one of the weeks of the year they work the hardest, it's a time they are really missing their families back at home, while for some reason the passengers are also the most demanding.

Go expecting to enjoy time with your family and go out of the way to extend a little extra warmth to the service staff, and you'll have a GREAT Time.
