Default merry christmas to cruise poem

'Twas the night before Christmas and far out at sea
Our vessel was sailing as smooth as could be

The stockings were hung from the balcony chairs
With hope that St. Nicholas would find them out there

The children were nestled all snug in their uppers
Having just settled down from a Christmas Eve supper

And ma and myself, we were covered in aloe
A bit too much sun, in a pool nice and shallow

When up in the sky there arose such a clatter
I leapt from my bed to see what was the matter

To the sliding glass door, I flew like a flash
Well, more like a saunter, and less like a dash

When, what to my skeptical eyes should appear
But a big shiny sleigh and eight flying reindeer

They circled our ship from starboard to port
And the moon lit the driver, a jolly old sort

Who called to his team in a happy retort,
"Now Dasher, now Dancer," so on and so forth

I raced through my cabin and into the hall
To the very top deck, in time for us all

To be awed by the sight of Old Santa's sleigh
As he lightly touched down by the midnight buffet

With a bundle of goodies thrown over his back
He climbed up the side and dropped down the smokestack

From insides to oceanviews, balconies, suites
Santa filled every stocking with toys and with treats

Until all the deliveries had been handled with care
Then he noted he still had a minute to spare

So he surfed the Surf Park, with nary a fall
While Dasher and Dancer scaled the rock-climbing wall

And Prancer, who was actually fond of the cold
Tried the ice-skating rink, a sight to behold

And then with a whistle, Santa summoned his team
And he bade us farewell, silent nights and sweet dreams

And I heard him exclaim as he flew out of view
Merry Christmas to all, and to all, a good cruise.

Moved from Ask the Staff:

Thank you for the lovely poem. It sure captures the spirit of Holiday Cruising.

Take care,
Mike
