Here's a link to an article I wrote last year about Christmas and New Year's sailings.
We love the atmosphere onboard New Year's Eve. So much so we have a CruiseMates group cruise sailing on the Golden Princess this year. And we CAN'T WAIT!
In a few short weeks, I will be able to tell you all about cruising over New Years, first time coming up on Golden Princess, have never cruised over any major holiday, so this is a first. I have a feeling it will be extra special, will be sure to let you know, can't wait!
We were on the Volendam last New Years. Same cruise as usual but the ship was decorated for the holidays and there were big parties all over the ship on New Years, lots of free champagne and the obligatory party hats, streamers and noise makers. Same as on land but better on a ship.
