Christmas cruise deals 2017

Spend the season on the seas with these top sailing deals.

Christmas cruises afford you that idyllic end-of-year pamper, complete with accommodation, transport, excursions and drinks, depending on the package you purchase.

From Australia, numerous cruises set sail from the main ports of Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne over the silly season. If you time your cruise right to be onboard on 25 December, there may even be a special yuletide party and seasonal entertainment on the day just for you.

With so many ships calling Australia home over this year's cruising season, you won't be short on festive cruises to hop onto – even if you book last minute.

We’ve pulled up the best deals on Christmastime cruises around Australia, the South Pacific and beyond to help you celebrate in style.
