December Caribbean Cruises

Cruises are one of the most popular vacations for travelers. The idea of getting on a ship and seeing several locations all on one voyage is appealing to many. Another reason cruise vacations are so popular is the fact that many of them cruise to warm and tropical locations year-round. December is a notoriously cold month in the majority of the United States, not to mention stressful with the holidays so close, and many travelers want to escape the cold and the crowded malls for a relaxing vacation in the Caribbean.

Carnival Imagination

The Carnival Imagination departs Florida from the Port of Miami for four nights of fun in the Caribbean sun. On this December cruise, you will escape the cold and bask in the warm, tropical weather of Cozumel, Mexico and Key West. You'll have one fun day at sea where you can play miniature golf or take your turn on the top deck's water slide. Your kids can hang out with other kids their own age at Camp Carnival and you can try your luck with the slots in the El Dorado Casino. Take in a show or two in the Dynasty show lounge or massage away the tension from fighting off the other anxious Christmas shoppers back home in the spa. Guests on the Imagination can dine in the main dining rooms, the sushi bar, at the buffet on the Lido Deck or in their rooms with 24-hour room service.

Royal Caribbean Monarch of the Seas

Take off for four nights in the Bahamas from Port Canaveral, Fla. Royal Caribbean's Monarch of the Seas leaves Port Canaveral during the month of December, taking guests on a four-night voyage to Nassau, Bahamas and their private island, CocoCay. On this ship you will find Vegas-style shows every night, swimming pools, lounges and a sports bar. You can cool off after attempting the rock climbing wall at Ben and Jerry's, located in the main atrium next to all of the Monarch's duty-free shopping. Your kids can participate in scavenger hunts at Adventure Ocean, the supervised children's program aboard the Monarch, while you choose treatments at the spa or play the blackjack table in the casino.

Celebrity Century

Spend five nights aboard the Celebrity Century, one of Celebrity Cruise Line's ships. This five-night cruise leaves the warm December sunshine of Miami for the even warmer December sunshine of Jamaica and the Cayman Islands. Guests of the Celebrity will see their dinner cooked right next to their table at the Murano Restaurant and hear live jazz music nightly in Michael's Piano Bar, where you can order a glass of wine and relax after a long day of water sports in the Caribbean. During your fun day at sea you can lie on the top deck next to the swimming pool or soothe your tired skin from the saltwater of the Caribbean Ocean in Aquaspa, the Celebrity's full-service spa.
