Dodge the silly season with a December cruise
Everybody knows that the last few weeks of the year get a little insane. Christmas is coming, along with all of the attendant events. Family gatherings, cocktail parties and BBQs fill up the calendar, and while it's fun it can also be overwhelming. A December cruise allows you to escape from it all for a while and return refreshed and ready. In extreme cases, you can skip the stress altogether and cruise through Christmas at sea!
In December, the Australasian cruise season is in full swing. This means that the options for itineraries, lines and ships are extensive, with departures taking place at ports all around the country. From classic favourites like P&O Cruises
and Princess Cruises
to some exciting visitors like Norwegian Cruise Lines who are sending the Norwegian Jewel to homeport in Sydney for the first time and Royal Caribbean
's Ovation of the Seas returning for her second season.
