Go Island Hopping For the Holidays

Sponsored by Royal Caribbean®

We all love the holidays, but we don’t love prepping for the big celebration, spending hours and hours cooking, and then, for the grand finale, cleaning up the entire house after everyone leaves.

What if we told you there was another way, and easier way? A way that not only prepares and cleans up amazing holiday feasts for you and your entire family, but also entertains them for days and takes them to the Caribbean’s most idyllic islands?

Yes indeed—more and more families are giving the gift of travel to themselves for the holidays, hopping on a festively decorated cruise ship and sailing to exotic locales like Jamaica, Barbados and Belize. If this sounds like something you’d like packaged under your tree, here are eight additional reasons you’ll love a holiday cruise with Royal Caribbean®.

  1. You’ll find elves right on deck, posing for photos, telling stories to kids, and preparing everyone for the arrival of you-know-who.
  2. Traditions still matter, even at sea. Royal Caribbean lets all families take part in the time-honored tradition of lighting the tree on every sailing.
  3. You’ll enjoy holiday-themed games for all ages, including trivia contests, scavenger hunts and more.
  4. Four words: Ugly Christmas Sweater Party.
  5. Christmas movies play in the theatre, and carols are sung across the decks.
  6. Santa himself joins in the festivities before the big day, taking time away from his busy schedule to pose for pics.
  7. Onboard, your family will love hanging ten on the FlowRider® surf simulator, racing down the tallest slide at sea, seeing Broadway musicals and so much more.
  8. On shore, you’ll enjoy a wide range of shore adventures, including snorkeling, ziplining, rain forest hikes, waterfall climbs and just chillin’ at the beach.
