As the colors of autumn begin to turn with the approaching chill of winter, my thoughts turn to two things: the holidays and escaping to the tropics. Of course, there’s never been a better time to run off to the palm-fringed beaches of the Caribbean or explore the myriad cultures and fascinating history of the Pacific Riviera.

If you’ve never thought of taking a cruise over the Yuletide season, here are 10 reasons to sail during the holidays:

  1. Enjoy holiday meals prepared by extraordinary chefs, and no dishes to wash afterwards
  2. Sip eggnog poolside
  3. Relish in the perfect blend of holiday cheer and tropical escape
  4. Sip Champagne in Barbados in balmy weather
  5. Spend New Year’s Eve on a submarine in Maarten
  6. Swim with a pod of playful dolphins in Cabo San Lucas
  7. Ring in the New Year with sublime Canyon Ranch SpaClub® treatments
  8. Discover the authentic fishing village and historic wonders of Todos Santos
  9. Admire festive gingerbread villages while listening to the carolers under the stars
  10. Make a New Year’s resolution to do this every year

I hope you’ll join us for one of these unforgettable holiday voyages to the Caribbean or the Pacific Riviera this season:
