We were on the Sea Princess last Christmas/New Year. There was a formal night on Christmas Eve, but Christmas Day was very low key, the attire of the day was casual, possibly because we were in Tortola. I know a lot of people thought this was disappointing and wondered if it was an American thing. However, New Years Eve was wonderful with a deck party and the Captain discovered that a large firework display was taking place in Curacao, so anchored the ship off there at midnight. You will have a great time as Christmas in the Caribbean is special and you will still get crackers, mince pies, Christmas carols and even snow in the Atrium! Also, lots of people take decorations for the cabin, if you like them.

Heading to the Caribbean?

By Ruby Perkins

Ruby Perkins's blog

With major hurricanes bartering through the United Stated and the Caribbean over the last couple of months I have received a huge amount of calls from obviously concerned passengers as to whether their cruise will still be happening, and if so will the itinerary still be the same.Having worked in the Caribbean for a couple of years with Thomson I have been in the middle of a couple of Hurricanes and dealt with the aftermath too from evacuating Islands, to holding the fort in hurricane shelter...
