Second Hallmark Channel Christmas cruise added after high demand

The Hallmark Channel’s first ever Christmas cruise is so popular, they’ve added another sailing.

The first holiday at sea sale, announced in July, sold out on its first day, and it appears the second sailing will likely be just as coveted.

Activities on the Christmas cruises, both set for 2024, include a tree lighting, Christmas Carol-oke, panels/photo ops with Hallmark Channel actors, an ugly sweater contest, wine tastings, and more.  

"We hear time and time again that people want to immerse themselves in the world of Hallmark Channel Christmas movies and this venture is sure to bring our brand to life in a new, captivating way," Hallmark Media’s Vice President of Consumer Products, Natalie Vandergast, said in a news release. 

When are the Hallmark Channel Christmas cruises?

The first Hallmark Channel holiday at sea will sail on the Norwegian Gem cruise ship from Miami to Nassau, Bahamas from Nov. 5-9, 2024, with Hallmark stars and interactive experiences on board. The cruise itinerary was created through a partnership with Sixthman, an immersive sea festival company.

The second cruise, from Nov. 17-21, 2024, will sail on the same ship to the same destinations, but the Hallmark Channel stars may vary between sailings and each cruise will have its own Countdown to Christmas world premiere movie.
