A Northwest Tradition for 70 years

Argosy Cruises Christmas Ship™ Festival is a ship-to-shore holiday celebration that has been a Northwest tradition since 1949. The Spirit of Seattle, the Official Christmas Ship™, is decorated with hundreds of shimmery white lights and sails to different Puget Sound waterfront communities – around 65 in all. Choirs on board the Christmas Ship™ perform to guests aboard, to follow boats and to communities gathered on shore. Select your preferred way to experience the Christmas Ship and prepare for the holiday event of the season!

A portion of all Christmas Ship™ Festival proceeds are donated to The Seattle Times Fund For The Needy.
