Default Christmas 2004, anyone going? and suggestions?

My boyfriend and I, are planning to ditch our families and spend Christmas week on a cruise this year. We would prefer a Florida departure since we live in Atlanta, and driving would allow for more $$$ to be spent on the cruise. Anyone had any holiday experience or anyone planning to go this year?

Christmas is a great time to cruise, I sailed on the Sea Princess over Christmas in 1998 and then this past Christmas (I just wasn't up to the Holidays after a breakup of a relationship of 11 years and my fathers death) on the Island Princess.

The ship is very festive. One thing that you may consider, even if you are driving is to avoid cruises that are 7-days, why? More like to have kids on board, especially if they are sat-sat or sun-sun. I don't plan to cruise this Christmas, but did see a really nice on on the Coral Princess, an 8-day.

Enjoy....Cruise #60-Royal Princess coming up 5/17

We are game to an 8 night or longer cruise, just prefer leaving from FL that time of year. It's an easy drive, and my parents live about half way to Miami, that way we can spend the night, but most important drop off the granddog.

We are booked on 12-20 14 night "Yuletide in the Caribbean" cruise on the QM2. Will spend both Christmas and New Year's eve on QM2. Lot of great ports that aren't on the standard Caribbean itineraries.

Pied Piper Travel has a large group of gay guys going. Check it out or let me know if you need further information.

My partner and I will be on the December 18-23 sailing on Holland America's Zuiderdam from Ft. Lauderdale to the Bahamas and then Key West. Prices are fantastic.

We are going on the Dec 18, eight day cruise from FLL to the eastern carribean on the new Carribean Princess. The ship looks awesome and as previous Princess passengers they are great to deal with. I have heard great things about the outdoor movie screen.

I would say prices are a little above average as it is an extra day and holiday period.

We are coming from California. Post what you decide to do

My partner and I are going on the MAASDAM out of Norfolk on December 22nd. We are going to stay four nights before at the Williamsburg Lodge and then get on the ship. It's 11 nights and includes Barbados, Dominica and most of the usual suspects.
