Make this year’s festive season extra special, and head off to celebrate the yuletide spirit in style. From Christmas dinner overlooking sparkling seas to spectacular firework displays lighting up Funchal's skies on New Year’s Eve, every aspect of our Christmas or New Year cruises promises something special.

Whether you want to soak up sun and festive spirit on the black-sand beaches and in the volcanic landscapes of Lanzarote or enjoy the warmer climes of Madeira and the Azores, we’ve got a stocking full selection of Christmas and New Year cruises.

Escape the winter chill this Christmas, and head south and into the Atlantic for a winter-warming festive break. Ring in the New Year beneath blue skies, and bask in the winter sun on relaxing port calls in Portugal, sunny Gibraltar or cosmopolitan Casablanca.

Sit back and relax completely on Christmas Day while the chefs, crew and attentive cruise managers aboard take care of your every need.

Whether it’s the warm weather that calls you, or the idea of a Christmas free of any seasonal stress, you’re sure to find a Christmas or New cruise to remember with us. So treat yourself, your family or a loved one to a festive cruise this holiday season.
