Default christmas

Come to Australia, Carnival are just starting to cruise out here and we are booked on Carnival Spirit for 11 days over Christmas, the cruise goes to Noumea in French Caledonia, Isle of Pines (which I have been told is beautiful) then to Fiji where the ports are Suva and Port denaru, the cruise is from Dec 16th to Dec 27th. I think you would be pretty much assured of good weather and we are looking forward to a fantastic cruise.

I usually don't care where I go as long as it is warm. I've done the Caribbean many times as well as Australia/NZ ... both were wonderful at Christmas time.

Chris's guide for budget travel - Made for conferences (may make a cruise version some time) but airline, shuttle, Priceline, and Hotwire tips should remain the same

i will be on the Celebrity Century doing a full transit of the Panama Canal from Dec 19 -Jan3. Both Christmas and New Years on board. We will be going though the canal on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day will be a sea day.
It is from Fort Lauderdale to San Diego.
There are some Brits already on our roll call.
I am really looking forward to this holiday cruise.
