Taking a cruise is one of the best ways to spend the festive season and, according to the Telegraph's Jane Archer, there are a number of options still available, ranging from a Caribbean voyage to an Antarctic cruise.
Holidaymakers can welcome 2009 in style onboard P&O Cruises'
Oriana, which departs Barbados for a 14-night Caribbean voyage on December 26th, taking in destinations such as Aruba, Grand Cayman and Montego Bay in Jamaica.
Coming in at number seven on Ms Archer's festive top ten is a Mediterranean voyage with MSC Cruises. Departing on December 29th, the cruise line is offering an 11-night voyage, with port calls including Tunis and Alexandria.
Meanwhile, a voyage with Ocean Village represents excellent value for money and the cruise line is operating a number of Caribbean voyages during December and New Year.
In related news, Ocean Village announced last week that it is planning to launch a new television campaign in the near future.
