Default Anyone ever go on a Christmas cruise?

We're going on a Christmas cruise, the first time we've ever sailed at Christmas. Every other cruise we've done has been non-holiday.

I'm wondering what I can expect (hope for) on a Christmas cruise. We are going Carnival and I would think they would have some "fun stuff" going on.

Anybody have any info on Christmas cruises, Carnival OR other line?

I have cruised the week before Christmas. the ship was fully decorated and ready for the xmas week though.

from what ive read about xmas cruises, theyre kinda like any other cruise, but with more spirit on xmas. like little kids might get disappointed cuz no Santa Claus on xmas morning, but i dont think that will be a problem for you.

you really should bring gifts for your room steward though. during your cruise, they become like family to you. and their real family is back home, so imagine how they must feel.

for fun stuff going on...i would expect xmas themed games and activites on board. and probably cool buffets!!
