Departing 16 December 2016


Start a new tradition

Forget snowmen, mistletoe and log fires. Christmas in the southern hemisphere is all about long sunny days, relaxing by the pool, on a beach in Lifou or abseiling under waterfalls in Vila.

Our Christmas cruises let you enjoy quality time with friends and family without the usual stresses of Christmas – no slaving over a hot stove or cleaning up! You can also give your vocal chords a workout with festive carolling, see the look on the kid’s faces when Santa visits with presents and enjoy delicious Christmas fare with all the trimmings for lunch and dinner on Christmas Day.
