Due to the evolving uncertainty around COVID-19, we have made the difficult decision to do a seasonal closure of public tours and private charters. This year’s annual Christmas Ship™ Festival will not run during the period of our seasonal closure.

A Northwest Tradition for over 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.

12 Days of Christmas Ship™

At its core, Christmas Ship™ is all about bringing the community together and spreading light and holiday cheer. While we can’t gather in person this year, we’ve put together something special to bring the spirit of Christmas Ship™ to the community. This year, in partnership with The Seattle Times Fund For The Needy, we’re proud to present 12 days of giveaways!

From December 7-18, we’ll be featuring amazing prizes from your favorite local attractions, sports teams and restaurants. Simply purchase a raffle ticket on one or more of the days you’d like to bid on and you’re entered to win. All proceeds from raffle tickets will support the participating non-profits and The Seattle Times Fund For The Needy.
