09 Nov 2016

With Christmas creeping up, wouldn’t it be nice to ditch the cooking and washing up and have a relaxing break? Here at Ocean World Travel, we have you got your back. Here are our 7 great destinations for Christmas –

Christmas Market

French Christmas Markets

Ok, this cruise may not be over the Christmas holidays, but Christmas markets are a great way to get last minute gifts or find something for that person that is awkward to buy for. This cruise takes you to Rouen and Honfleur, view more here.

Canaries Christmas and New Year

One reason we want to escape for Christmas is to get away from the cold weather. With this Canaries cruise you are taken around Marocco, Spain and Portugal and celebrate the big day on board. What could be better, sun and not cooking at Christmas – perfect!

South Pacific Christmas

Living in England you wonder what it’s like to celebrate Christmas on the beach with a BBQ instead of a roast dinner. This cruise takes you around the South Pacific, starting from Sydney. You spend Christmas on the beautiful Lifou Island where you can relax on the beach and have that BBQ you were wondering about!

City Lights and Overnights

Again, strictly not over the Christmas period, but we love a Christmas market! This one takes you to Amsterdam, Germany and Belgium. With overnights in Amsterdam and Antwerp you are sure to be able to take away some of the Christmas spirit from the fabulous Christmas markets.
