Celebrate with Christmas Cruises and Make Unforgetable Family Memories!
Taking Christmas Cruises is the perfect way to get away with family and spend quality time together. You will re-connect with your husband and kids enjoying a relaxing, no stress, fun-filled and all inclusive vacation. It's a Christmas Holiday that your family will remember always!
Whether you go during the Holiday or before or afterward, my family and I would highly recommend
taking Christmas Cruises together. We have been on many cruises and each one has been a memorable family experience that bonds us closer together. It's priceless!
Taking a cruise is also an exceptional value.
For one price, all your meals, drinks, entertainment,
activities and lodging are paid for. And you get to visit spectacular places!
My good friend, Ginny Indelicato, is a terrific travel agent and a wonderful person. Ginny has been my friend for about 16 years and she has been in the travel business for about 10 years.
She is an expert at
booking cruises, especially Christmas cruises! She has helped me and many others decide on what cruise line to
go on and got us the best deals out there. She will work very hard to get you exactly what you and your family need to have an unforgettable vacation together! I would definitely recommend her.

This is beautiful Belize - a stop on our Western Carribean Cruise.
Our all time favorite cruise line so far is Carnival.
We had an awesome time sailing in the Caribbean!
This cruise line seems to cater more to families with children than other cruise lines.
Carnival Cruises provides plenty to do for young children as well as the older teens.
Meanwhile my ten year
old, (John) was busy with the younger kids playing video games in their "club".
Here we all are swimming at Seven Mile Beach in Grand Cayman. The water is the clearest I've ever seen.
Sam and I were able to get in some romantic moments too!
I definitely recommend going on some excursions while at port in the islands.
Here's a TIP: You could save yourself
a lot of money by NOT going through the cruise line's reservations desk, but waiting to get off the ship and
going with a local provider.
That's exactly what we did. It's not that hard to do. Once you get off the ship, you have many local vendors and
tour operators competing for your business. That's where you get the same quality tours that the cruise lines offer,
but for much more reasonable prices.

Here's John monkeying around while on a Jungle exploration excursion on Isla Roatan, Honduras.
We were really pampered- treated like royalty. I can't say enough about their attention
to service. They aimed to please us and they accomplished that!
HOWEVER, we did notice that the atmosphere
was more subdued than, say a, Carnival cruise. Perhaps more suitable for couples
without young children or empty nesters. We thoroughly enjoyed the relaxed pace
of the ship.
Here's Sam and me at our ship's fabulous Martini Bar. The countertop was made of ice and snow!
We tried many different types of
martinis, but our fave was the Chocolate martini. The bartenders mix the drinks with skill and showmanship! It was
...Which means you have a choice of where and when you eat your meals.
You are not assigned a table and a seating time, but instead you have a choice of several
restaurants that you may eat at whenever you are ready. No reservations required either.
We kept going back to the Italian restaurant that had the spectacular view out the back of
the ship. Food was outstanding too!
Here we are on a Christmas cruise with Grandma when my kids were much younger. We were docked in St. Thomas.
I encourage you to take your kids no matter what their ages. Mine have been traveling on cruises in particular, since they were toddlers.
Check out the beautiful fruit sculptures made by the chefs onboard. They are works of art!
Norwegian Cruise Lines also had a marvelous kids program that John loved. They really entertained him with scavenger hunts, crafts, games,
face painting, making and eating snacks, ice cream parties and even quiet movie times with pj's and pillows to cuddle with.
It put my mind at ease that he was safe and having fun while I was doing something I wanted to do.
COSTA Cruise lines is another fabulous Christmas cruise line that my family and I would highly recommend. We've been on many Costa ships and they are all magnificent!
The ships decor is modern and artsy. Beautiful, vibrant colors everywhere you look. Winding staircases and glass elevators, Italian marble and granite floors, and mahagony panelling give you an idea of the luxuriousness of the ships. Stunning works of art - paintings, and scultpures are all around.
Mike and Nick were very
young when they went on their first Costa cruise and they loved the Children's Club. They were kept busy with arts and crafts,
games and prizes, snacks, treasure hunts, and movies.
Nick as a baby with my Dad. This was Nick's first cruise - on a Costa Christmas cruise.
Costa is an Italian cruise line with authentic Italian World Class chefs,
so of course, the food was exceptional! My extremely finicky dad who grew up in Sicily, would have told you that too. And if
there was something special you wanted to eat that was not on the menu - all you had to do was ask the Maitre D' and they would
cheerfully bring it to you. The service was impeccable.
My Mom and Dad, me, Mike and Nick on a Costa Christmas Cruise.
Not only was the ship gorgeous, the food delicious, the service outstanding, but the entertainment was wonderful! We had so
much fun at each nightly show, whether it was a singer, magician, comedian or Broadway musical rendition, it was fantastic.
And the highlight of the week was on the last night of the cruise. The whole ship has a Roman Toga party! They supply you with the togas and crowns
and you sing, dance and feast all night. It's a great time! No other cruise line that I've been on throws such a fun party
for all - kids and adults.
