‘Tis the Season for New

Travel Traditions

By Tina Higgins, Cruise Planners Travel Advisor

Give the gift of travel

this holiday season

and celebrate your

favorite traditions onboard.

You might even make a new

tradition this year… a holiday


Soak up the Sun

Trade your rubber boots

and overcoat for a snorkel

and swimsuit! Cruise the

Caribbean where there’s a

port of call to meet any and

all of your travel desires. Sail

on a pirate ship in Barbados,

unwind with a beachfront

massage in Honduras or

snorkel among a rainbow

of fish in the Bahamas. Who

needs the glisten of tinsel

when you can enjoy the

sparkle of the sun on the

Caribbean Sea? Cruise lines

go all-out for the holidays.

Carnival Cruise Lines, for

example, combines solemn

traditions with jolly fun

featuring the Grinch and the

rest of the Dr. Seuss crew.

“Sail-ebrate” the Season

Worried about missing out on

your favorite traditions while

onboard? Special themed

events and entertainment on

board cruises throughout the

holiday season means Santa

will make a stop to deliver

gifts and champagne glasses

clink at midnight on New

Year’s Eve. Don’t forget to pack

your ugly holiday sweater for

themed parties!

Indulgent Holiday Feasts

Can’t imagine your

Thanksgiving without turkey

but tired of spending your

holidays preparing meals?

Let onboard chefs create your

favorite holiday meals with

all the fixin’s and desserts to

dazzle every sweet tooth. All

you have to do is indulge – no

clean up required! And after

lunch, go out on the deck and

check out your favorite football

games on the large screens.

Gift the Family with

Experiences, Not Things

Do your kids really need

more toys? Give them the

experience of seeing other

parts of the world. Give

them the experience of other

cultures and foods. Studies

show that the benefits from

amazing experiences, such

as travel, last longer after the

trip is over and ultimately

helps to form our identities.

We remember experiences

long afterward, while we soon

become used to, and bored

with, our possessions.

Get Together and Get Excited

Cruising is a stress-free holiday

away from the hustle and

bustle of the holiday season.

Forget having to entertain your

relatives. No matter their age

or interest, the entire family

will be entertained with live

music, production shows, kids’

clubs and onboard activities.

Treat yourself and your

loved ones to a holiday to

remember and leave decking

the halls, carving the turkey,


and pouring the champagne

to the professionals. All that’s

left for you to do is sink your

toes in the sand!
