Small ship cruises sell out early, especially during the Christmas and New Year holidays. Some of our most popular small ship cruises sell out as much as two years in advance during the holidays, but there are last minute cabins available for travelers seeking to travel during the 2014 Christmas holiday. Some travelers cancel their trips, agencies who could not sell their cabins release space and new trips are sometimes added. As the leader in small ship cruises we are adept at finding our travelers last minute cabins during the holidays.
2014 Available Christmas Cruises
Below is a selection of last minute small ship cruises that are still available during Christmas and holidays in December 2014. You will need to act fast if you would like to book one of these tours as cabins are filling on a daily basis and will not last long. Keep in mind that these trips were available at the time this was posted but we cannot guarantee availability. Call our small ship cruise experts to discuss your Christmas cruise plans.
