Ogle Boats Decked To The Nines On This Christmas Ship Tour In Washington
Kick off the Christmas Season with a Northwest celebration that has been a holiday tradition in Washington since 1949. Step aboard the Spirit of Seattle, the Official Christmas Ship of the Argosy Cruises Christmas Ship Festival, and get ready for an evening of holiday merriment!
Look for Santa on the dock as he counts down the start of the festival.
The Spirit of Seattle lights up the night with hundreds of twinkling lights. Festively decorated inside and out, the Spirit of Seattle Christmas Ship Tour is the perfect event to put you in the holiday mood.
The Christmas Ship Tour sets sail from their home port at Pier 55 in Seattle.
The Spirit of Seattle sails throughout the holiday season, casting a magical glow on the waters of Puget Sound. This is a popular event, so it is recommended to buy tickets early.
In mid-December, the annual Christmas Ship Parade Of Boats adds a spectacular sparkle to the water.
It’s not uncommon for festively decorated boats of all sizes to follow the Christmas Ship on its seasonal route. But if you’re lucky enough to book a cruise for the night of the official Christmas Ship Parade Of Boats, you’re in for a real treat!
Every year, the decorations get more creative!
Decked out in glittering lights and classic Christmas characters, the boats that follow the Christmas Ship illuminate the water with joyous celebration.
Every seat is a good one on the Spirit of Seattle!
Seating is offered on the Christmas Ship on both the first and second decks where you will have the opportunity to enjoy holiday music performances by local choirs. Sip a seasonal beverage from the bar or enjoy a warm cup of local chowder. Step outside to the outer decks and wave to fellow boaters with their brightly decorated vessels.
Watch the sparkling procession of boats from aboard the ship or along the shores.
Pack a thermos of cocoa and gather around the bonfire on one of the public beaches on the ship’s route to watch the parade. Follow boats are brilliantly decorated and do exactly what their name suggests; they follow the Christmas Ship in a shining display of holiday cheer.
Admire the breathtaking view of the Seattle skyline at night.
Have you ever seen the Seattle skyline from the water? The nighttime view from the Spirit of Seattle is spectacular. Snap a photo of the family as you pass by the Great Wheel or the Space Needle. Don’t forget to watch for Santa. He’ll be on board all night. The photo opportunities are endless.
