Christmas eve/day on board.

Recommended Posts

Even though it's a full year away (do have a cruise booked for Easter as well :classic_biggrin:) what is the normal routine for Christmas Eve and day on board, we are on Azura in the Caribbean and were wondering what to expect.

We are on the same cruise this year.  I'll post when we get back, hopefully with the info you are looking for.

Christmas Eve is a normal day usually in port, they hold midnight mass shared between passengers and crew. Christmas Day is at sea and has a full program and is formal you even get a visit from Santa. If you are on freedom then they request you to pick 1st or 2nd sitting for Christmas Day and New Year’s Eve makes it easier for the waiters to finish and enjoy.

 

We are on Oriana from 21st December and do it most years

As promised, update on the Azura Christmas cruise. Christmas Day was a sea day and it felt very Christmassy to us. Christmas dinner was a little chaotic but not earthshattering. Overall we thought there was a nice Christmas vibe but were told several times by others that they had been doing this same cruise for several years and it had all gone downhill. Nothing was as good as it has been in the past. As it was our first P&O cruise we had nothing to measure it by. We enjoyed it anyway.
