What better way to escape the cold, wet British winter and enjoy some festive sun this year than with a Christmas cruise? We have rounded up five of the best destinations to get you in the mood to celebrate Christmas at sea.

#1. Norway

Norway is a land of myths and legends and the perfect place to head to for a traditional Christmas, with yuletide tales, reindeer and sleighs. Hop on a cruise from Bergen and you will have the opportunity to see the northern lights, learn some Norwegian Christmas carols and enjoy a traditional Norwegian feast on Christmas Day.

#2. Caribbean

Where better to soak up the sun than on a beach in the Caribbean this Christmas? Relax on the island of St Maarten or enjoy duty-free shopping in St Thomas. Christmas dinner is served on board your ship for an indulgent finish to a completely relaxing break − just don't forget your sun tan lotion.

#3. New York

Christmas in New York is guaranteed to get even the most hardened grinch into the festive spirit − nowhere does Christmas better. Whether you are window-shopping on 5th Avenue, ice skating at the Rockefeller Center or heading for Times Square on New Year's Eve to watch the ball drop, you are guaranteed a Christmas to remember.

#4. Seychelles

For a seriously sunny and relaxing Christmas, the Seychelles has everything you need. Home to some of the world's most beautiful beaches, you can visit Desroches Island, La Passe, St Anne Island and many more. Spot amazing wildlife, explore the natural beauty of the islands or simply relax with a cocktail on the beach as you work on your tan. You won't want to come home.

#5. Bali and the Great Barrier Reef

If you fancy a more active break, a cruise to Bali and the Great Barrier Reef is the perfect choice. Cheap cruise travel insurance will ensure you are protected at sea and on land, while exploring tropical rainforests, learning about Aboriginal culture and trekking in the Komodo National Park − you may even spot a Komodo dragon! − make this the perfect festive adventure for anyone bored with a traditional Christmas at home. A cruise is a great way to escape the stress of the festive season − no battling the crowds on the high street − and enjoy a more relaxing break. Why not book your cruise now?
