CruiseCompete offers top reasons to enjoy a cruise during 2008 holidays

Truly festive atmosphere After Thanksgiving, the cruise lines get in the holiday spirit by decorating their ships from bow to stern. Some cruise lines spend in excess of $100,000 annually on holiday decorations.

Special guests Christmas-time cruises would not be complete without visits from Santa, Mrs. Claus and their elf friends. They make appearances on many ships during the holiday season leading up to Christmas Day.

New Year's fun Ringing in the New Year is a splash aboard a cruise ship. Elaborate parties take place at sea for persons of all ages and tastes. Special food, entertainment, toasts, party favors and more make the night memorable. New Year's Day features special football tailgate parties.

No snow A holiday cruise is ideal for persons looking for a change of scenery as colder weather moves in at home. With Caribbean temperatures in the low 80s during this time of year, the closest one will come to cold weather on a cruise ship is the snow falling in the ship's atrium. It's man made, however, and designed to melt in the air.

Great food Nobody goes hungry on a cruise vacation, especially during the holidays. Cruise menus fit the season, with world-class chefs preparing traditional Thanksgiving and Christmas meals, plus special kosher foods during Hanukkah.

Kid's activities galore With children on holiday break from school, many families love to cruise during December. There is so much to do on a cruise, including a range of supervised activities for kids ages 3-17, pool activities, special lounges and dedicated nightclubs for tweens and teens.

True relaxation - Leave the hustle and bustle (and accompanying stress) of the holidays behind and enjoy a more relaxed atmosphere. There is no better way to spend an afternoon in December than lying poolside, enjoying a massage or sunbathing on a cruise line's private island beach.

Unique gifts A cruise vacation is one holiday gift that will be truly appreciated. Plus, there is world-class shopping onboard the ship and in various ports. Special shipping arrangements can be made to get the gifts home.
