Cunard at Christmas: Highlights

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, 


I’m booked on the Queen Elizabeth Xmas Cruise to Bruges from 14-17 December. Is anyone else? 


As a millennial, one of my questions is, of course, what are the highlights likely to be from a picture taking perspective? Which things onboard are likely to look best on our social media accounts and make all our friends envious?!?


I was thinking: 


- Christmas Tree in the Grand Lobby

- Gingerbread Village 

- Christmas cocktails 


Anything else? In your experience, are there any ‘must do’ experiences on a Cunard Xmas cruise? 


It it would be great to hear from you.

We did a Christmas Market cruise a few years ago on QV.


I think it was 12 days in total. The decorations and gingerbread village didn't appear until 19 December.


Surprisingly, there was no Christmas Fayre food-wise and we were told that the only day Christmas lunch/dinner is offered is 25 December.


Luckily, as we were in QG, with the help of a pen and note pad, I wrote  our menu and a couple of days later had a lovely Christmas dinner complete with pudding and flaming brandy sauce.


I don't know if that is still the case. Perhaps someone who has been more recently can advise.
