Was on a ship on Thanksgiving in '98 and it was partially decorated for Christmas.
While in St. Thomas on the next to last day it was fully decorated. Looked great. Put you in the spirit of the season.
I sailed many years ago on the th old Emerald Seas in early December and the decorations did indeed create a marvelous atmosphere and palpable good will. I am one who begins Xmas music the day after Thanksgiving and wonder what happened to the holiday season on the the 31st of Dec. Will also be on Princess for New Year and look forward to the bubbly instead of tinsel. Thanks for the replies, JP
