A Christmas cruise aboard Royal Caribbean is a hassle-free way to spend the festive period and these special cruises are jam packed with activities, sumptuous food and the ships are ornately decorated.

Royal Caribbean have six special Christmas and New Year sailings aboard ships like Australia’s biggest ship, Ovation of the Seas as well as Radiance of the Seas and Voyager of the Seas.

Departing from Sydney, these six unique sailings will take guests to destinations like Noumea in New Caledonia, Mystery Island in Vanuatu, Wellington and Dunedin in New Zealand as well as a cruise through the picturesque Milford Sound.

But what makes it so special is the vibe and atmosphere aboard Royal Caribbean’s fleet of Aussie homeported ships.

From the food, to the décor, to the parties, you’ll get all the Christmas trimmings, without the messy clean up and the stress of Christmas organisation.

The promenade and public areas of the ships are filled with decorations – ornate Christmas trees, hanging glittering snowflakes, reindeers, bright poinsettias as well as garlands of tinsel and wreaths.

The line goes all out on Christmas decorations

One of the highlights of Royal Caribbean’s Christmas cruises are their special tree lighting showcase which is held on every cruise.

At Giovanni’s Table and Chops Grille, two of the line’s premier and flagship restaurants, you’ll be served traditional Christmas fare.
