Holiday Cruises

American Cruise Lines provides guests with a worry-free way to experience the holidays through elegant atmospheres, spacious accommodations, exceptional cuisine, and an elevated level of personalized service. This year, we have 5 special Holiday cruises planned and each is filled with new activities, fun events and the spirit of the season. Features include traditional meals with all the trimmings, special holiday shore excursions, and ships adorned in festive decor.

Thanksgiving Cruises include an incredible meal with new and old friends, Autumnul decor throughout the ship, as well as a Holiday Gift Exchange with guests. The American Cruise Lines culinary team prepares a traditional Thanksgiving feast with roast turkey, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, and stuffing. Guests can also join the chefs in making a bread cornucopia.

Christmas Cruise highlights include a Holiday Gift Exchange with fellow guests, onboard caroling and cookies, a photo booth for memory making, and a Complimentary Pre-Night Stay on board the ship the day prior to embarkation. On our Colonial Christmas Cruises, you will spend the season in the best Christmas town in America, Colonial Williamsburg. Guests will visit the National Christmas Tree in President's Park on the White House Ellipse, as well as get in the spirit of the season while watching a Christmas light boat parade in Annapolis.

If you choose to set sail on our New Year's cruise, delight in holiday decor and festivities throughout the ship. Ring in the Near Year with a special New Year's Eve Gala with live entertainment and a midnight toast.
