    We just booked a christmas cruise for 2018–Mariner out of Miami 4 day Bahamas cruise. It sails on xmas eve—so we’ll be on the ship for xmas day. Do they do anything special for xmas? Will it be warm enough to swim during that time of year

    At Easter, there was a Great Display and Easter Bunny at the Windjammer. Also an Easter Parade on the Royal Promenade. There were two services, one Catholic, and one non-denominational. I don't see why they wouldn't do some sort of celebration for Christmas. As for swimming,
    it depends. We had beautiful days that you could swim, and some nasty cold rainy days in April. I'm sure you could get the same in December.

    The ship will be beautifully decorated. As for what they do on Christmas Day, I can't say, because I have never been aboard then. I would expect special items on the menu, and a visit from Santa Claus. As for swimming, that will depend on your itinerary and the weather.
    Whatever happens, I'm sure you will have a great time!

    Like MinMou says, the ship will be beautifully decorated! As far as being warm enough to swim I think it depends on what you consider "warm enough!" :flower1: I live in the South, and on my latest Bahamas cruise in October I did not think it was warm enough, but there sure were plenty of people in the water so somebody thought it was! Oh, and my kids had no problem with swimming, but they've been known to swim until they turn blue! :beach:
