Well, it’s officially December, which means holiday festivities are in full force. As wonderful as this time of year is, it can also be a bit overwhelming as we juggle our hectic schedules crammed with holiday shopping, parties, and family gatherings, on top of our regular responsibilities.

At Waterways, we believe the best way to celebrate the Holidays is to spend quality time with your loved ones by creating lasting memories you can look back on for many years to come. For over 20 years our goal has been to provide you with an unforgettable experience that will let you relax and savor special moments with your loved ones as you dine, celebrate, and cruise with us.

We have several festive cruises to get you into the holiday spirit. From our kid-friendly Santa Lunch Cruises to our Festive and Premium Parade of Light cruises, there is a cruise to please all! Book a cruise today to start your holiday season off right—on the water!

Our Festive and Premium Holiday Parade of Lights cruises join dozens of other decorated yachts in the annual parade of ships, which brings together many waterfront communities gathered around roaring bonfires, awaiting the parade of ships. Beautiful live music from a variety of local choral groups is piped from the lead Christmas Ship for the enjoyment of those on shore and in the parade. Our cruises include a champagne or cider toast upon boarding, our Executive Chef’s delicious buffet of holiday favorites, full service bar with special winter cocktails, and spectacular views of the holiday displays with your Captain’s narration.
