The Caribbean is the top destination for December cruises. The Canary Islands, Europe, Mediterranean and Asia are also popular choices. You can cruise in December with P&O Cruises, Celebrity Cruises, MSC Cruises, Fred.Olsen and Royal Caribbean.
Discover the many reasons why December cruises remain a popular option for travellers, with exciting winter escapes and Christmas cruises to choose from.
Whether it's the perfect pre-Christmas getaway, with the chance to explore unique and fascinating markets or it's just the perfect excuse to escape the bad weather and find somewhere warm to unwind, December cruises offer a chance to get away and see the world in style. We have some amazing adults-only cruises, as well as a number of more family-oriented itineraries and ships if you want to take the kids with you.
Take a Caribbean cruise and you can experience a tropical paradise of absolute serenity. Almost two-thirds of our cruises in December are to the Caribbean islands, letting you enjoy the best of the dry season with immaculate white beaches and gorgeous crystal-clear waters, creating a taste of ultimate relaxation.
There is a mix of short breaks and longer Caribbean getaways with a range of cruise lines and ships to suit every travelling party. So, whether it's an action-packed family break or something a bit more calm and elegant, the Caribbean makes for a magnificent cruise destination.
Away from the Caribbean, there are numerous cruises around Europe during December. Unlike the summer months, more of the cruises are tailored towards the northern region rather than the Mediterranean although voyages to both are available. December is one of the better times of the year for possibly seeing the Northern Lights in Norway, while a city break to France, Holland or Belgium is ideal if you want a mini cruise with the option to visit nearby Christmas markets.
Cruises to the Panama Canal in Central America, as well as around the continent of South America, are more readily available in December than in many other months, including a mix of mini cruises and those lasting a week or two. See stunning wildlife around Brazil, Peru and the Galapagos Islands along with lively and interesting cities.
Other cruises in December visit the wonders of the Far East, as well as destinations around Africa and Australia, while transatlantic options let you spend more time at sea if you're more interested in the cruising side of your holiday and spending days at sea.
Leaving the bitter cold and stressful time of December behind, cruising during this month is a perfect excuse to get away from it all. We have a fantastic range of December cruises to choose from, with a range of exceptional cruise lines and an amazing fleet of ships to offer the ultimate cruise experience.
