Spending Christmas in the UK can at times feel like a doubled-edged sword. We all love the idea of the Winter Wonderland – crisp white snow, glistening countryside and warm fireside evenings. Yet once the ice sets in, the snow melts and the slush thickens – everyone’s favourite winter wonderland starts to sound a great deal better in theory than in practice.
During this Christmas season why not take a new approach to the age-old winter wonderland? On a Christmas cruise holiday, you can swap snowfall for sunshine and sledging for sunbaking with a truly memorable festive season. Best of all, with plenty of last minute deals still available, you can grab yourself a real winter wonderland bargain.
A different kind of winter wonderland
The calendar might say December, but the winter season doesn’t need to mean chilly weather. Across the world there are countless locations that enjoy mild winters with temperatures reaching the mid twenties. Best of all, in hot countries winter usually means the off-season for tourism, leaving you and your family to enjoy the run of the town. So, why not enjoy some sunshine and much needed vitamin D this Christmas by booking a sunny getaway. With so many affordable beach holidays available, it can be tricky choosing the right destination for you. This is why cruise holidays have proven such a popular style of getaway, as they let people pick and choose between destinations.
Winter wonderland onboard
Think about all of the best bits about Christmas – delicious food, celebrating with your family, time away from work. Now imagine it without the workload. Christmas cruises give you the best of both worlds, where you can enjoy your turkey and all the trimmings without setting foot near the kitchen. Best of all, you can do it while soaking up some much needed sunshine and poolside relaxation. So, swap the eggnog for a cocktail and the Christmas jumper for a bikini – because discovering a new style of winter wonderland on board a cruise ship means all the fun without any of the hassle.
If you’re deciding on a Christmas cruise destination then the chances are you’re spoilt for choice. There’s an abundance of warm winter holiday locations to choose between. So, whether you’re choosing between skiathos holidays or perhaps a cruise along the Turkish coast to Bodrum, pack your sunscreen because there’s a new style of winter wonderland waiting to be discovered.
