Nearly every cruise line in the Caribbean offers special Christmas and New Year's cruises, which include all food and entertainment for one price. Some ships go all out with decorations for the holidays, and at a minimum you can expect a special menu on Christmas Day -- big eating, after all, is something that this holiday and cruise ships definitely have in common -- and a rockin' party to welcome the new year in style. Royal Caribbean
is known for being family friendly, and of course for families with small kids it's hard to beat a few days at sea with Mickey Mouse and pals aboard Disney Cruise Line
. With the kids out of school, a three- or four-night cruise out of Florida might just be the ideal way to spend the holidays this year.
