Australia has a strong tradition of celebrating a second Christmas in July in order to enjoy the holidays in a more seasonal setting.

Carnival Cruise Line is offering guests an alternative to the usual July Christmas celebrations on Sydney Harbor this year. Guests can immerse themselves in the holiday mood on board carnival splendor for the Grinchmas in July departures while exploring some of Australia’s most beautiful destinations.

Grinchmas in July Sailings offer a festive cruise experience

Australia has a rich cultural history that includes many traditions from its British roots. One such tradition is the concept of a “perfect Christmas,” characterized by cold weather, warm fires, hearty meals, and festive songs.

However, due to Australia’s southern hemisphere location, snow is a rarity in December and the typical Christmas weather lends itself more to beach celebrations than fireside gatherings.

Carnival Cruise Line’s July Grinchmas cruises offer a fresh and exciting way to enjoy this uniquely Australian tradition. Guests can indulge in the holiday spirit as they explore some of the region’s most beautiful destinations and create memories to last a lifetime.

Carnival’s usual offering of over 45 onboard activities will complement the holiday atmosphere during July’s Grinchmas cruises, ensuring a memorable and enjoyable experience for all guests. Guests can take part in various holiday activities, including taking part in festive Christmas carols and entering the ugly sweater contest.
