We're quite new to cruising; one cruise with P and O, (36 nights to Caribbean from Southampton) and two 14 night cruises with Celebrity, one to the Med and one to the Baltic. We really enjoyed all three cruises, with some positives and negatives on each occasion. We are now contemplating a Christmas cruise and, if we decide to take the plunge, would want a traditional Christmas (decoration of the ship, carols and good quality, traditional Christmas food) with like minded people. We are both in our sixties and have been retired for 2 years. We are reasonably fit and well, enjoy a wide range of activities and like to keep fairly active. Is there anyone out there who has travelled at Christmas with P and O or Celebrity? We would love to hear about your experiences and whether your cruise lived up to your hopes and expectations. We would also love to hear from anyone who has travelled at Christmas with any other cruise line, particularly Cunard, NCL, Holland America and Princess, and how they compare. Time is moving along and we keep dithering about whether to risk it or not. Can anyone help us please?
