The 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 lights and sails to different Puget Sound waterfront communities. Choirs aboard the Christmas Ship™ perform to guests, follow boats, and spectators gathered onshore.

Join the Christmas Ship™ Festival on a fully-decorated private charter and follow the Spirit of Seattle as she travels and performs to waterfront communities.
