When do they decorate for Christmas?

I am hoping to book a cruise at the beginning of December. Does anyone know when they put the decorations up?
Thanks!!

I was on a Thanksgiving Cruise and the tree and gingerbread house were already up.

It depends on when Remembrance Day (Veterans day) is. We've sailed twice on the second sailing in November, and the first time it was, as we left November 12. The second time we sailed November 11, so no decorations. We could see the pointsettias as we were disembarking!!!

It use to be by mid November, but last year due to the Magic being based outside of FL it wasn't until after Thanksgiving. Next year all four ships should be out of FL in November so maybe they will go back to that. It should definitely be up by December.

Veterans day is ALWAYS Nov. 11. It is not a 'Monday Holiday', but last year it was a Sunday so Monday the 12th was the holiday.

Usually they start decorating the week before Thanksgiving, but not all the ships are on the same schedule.
