Between holiday traveling to family dinners, work parties, and endlessly full social calendars, the holiday season can feel like one of the busiest times of the year. It can be hard to find balance amidst all the cheer and merriment, which takes away from the fun. While many people find themselves in the airport on Christmas Day or New Year’s Eve headed to warmer, tropical destinations — Why not escape winter with a Celebrity cruise?

December and January is a great time to take a cruise, and Celebrity offers itineraries to destinations all over the world, from the Caribbean to Asia, Sydney to Dubai, and beyond. Plus, cruise itineraries range from anywhere between two-day getaways to seven-day adventures.

Unlike other types of vacations, cruising requires minimal planning and heavy lifting. The destinations are decided. You already know where you’ll be staying in style, so you don’t have to spend hours booking hotels or Airbnbs along the way. Exploration in port cities is optional if you and your loved ones feel like enjoying the ship’s amenities instead that day. Cruising during the holidays not only makes for a great gift for a family member or spouse, but it’s one even the gift-giver can partake in and enjoy. Solo cruises are another popular opportunity for intrepid travelers during the holidays, and Celebrity has more solo suites than ever before as a key part of our revitalization efforts in the Celebrity Revolution.

Christmas and New Years in the Caribbean

December and early January is the perfect time for a cruise vacation. The office is quiet and the pressure is on to give the perfect gift. Leave your puffer coat behind and pack your bags for the warmth of the Caribbean on a 2019 Christmas cruise.

The Caribbean is a vacation fan favorite, and for good reason — from afternoons among historic Mayan ruins in the Western Caribbean to unforgettable excursions snorkeling with marine life, local tequila tastings, and beyond. Put your feet up in your suite’s veranda or lounge in a hammock beachside with a beachy cocktail in one hand and a good book in the other.

Caribbean Holiday Sailings

Beat the winter blues on a sunny, tropical Caribbean cruise, where just a few of the itineraries include 7 nights in the Southern Caribbean, taking you to ports like Barbados and Grenada. The beaches here are some of the best in the world, and locally sourced seafood and Caribbean fare rules the menus. You’ll depart from San Juan, Puerto Rico, and you could arrive a day early to explore El Morro, the historic preserved citadel that watchfully guards the city, or go out salsa dancing before your cruise.
If you’re looking for a longer getaway, depart from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, to experience our Ultimate 11 Night Caribbean Cruise heading to major destinations like Aruba, Bonaire, and Colombia. 11 days of complete unplugging and relaxation will set the tone for your 2020 mood.

South America itineraries offer two weeks of pure exploration onboard Celebrity Eclipse.

Stop in at the penguin colony in Punta Arenas, Chile, and admire these majestic creatures up close.

Sail to Australia, New Zealand, and the South Pacific

A New Zealand or South Pacific holiday cruise offers both 9 night and 12 night itineraries depending on which you prefer. The 9 Night Round-Trip South Pacific Cruise visits 5 incredible ports, departing from Sydney, Australia on the way to Noumea, Mystery Island, Vila, and Lifou. Noumea is decidedly French, from its colonial influence to its chic cafe scene and cuisine. After all, Noumea is called “the French Riviera of the Pacific.” The local aquarium is another highlight, where you’ll stand up close to exhibits of Pacific marine life, including endangered sea turtles.  Loyalty Island and the town of Lifou is known for stunning, craggy cliffs and clear beaches, where snorkeling and diving are favorite summertime activities.
On a 12 Night New Zealand cruise, you’ll start in Auckland, New Zealand and end in Sydney, Australia, bookmarking your vacation with fine dining, art, and cultural experiences in these two cosmopolitan, refined cities. In Tauranga, New Zealand, discover the region’s budding film industry and learn the history of the indigenous Maori populations. Tauranga is the dream for beach buffs, where white sand and a cool breeze make for excellent surfing and sunbathing. You’ll also see the New Zealand “Sounds” from the cruise ship—Doubtful Sound, Milford Sound, and Dusky Sound—three incredible fjords known for rare wildlife sightings and lush natural beauty.
