    Hope this doesn't break any TA rules. I felt it was only right to give credit where due.

    Merry Christmas Everyone! :goodvibes

    'Twas the night before Christmas, and far out at sea
    Our vessel was sailing, as smooth as could be

    The stockings were hung from the balcony chairs
    With hope that St. Nicholas soon would be there

    The children were nestled all snug in their uppers
    Having just settled down from a Christmas Eve supper

    And ma and myself, we were covered in aloe
    A bit too much sun, in a pool, warm and shallow

    When up in the sky, there arose such a clatter
    I leapt from my bed to see what was the matter

    To the sliding glass door, I flew like a flash
    Well, more like a saunter, and less like a dash

    And what to my skeptical eyes should appear
    But a great shiny sleigh, and eight flying reindeer

    They circled our ship, from starboard to port
    As the moon lit the driver, a jolly old sort

    Who called to his team, in a happy retort
    "Now Dasher, now Dancer," so on and so forth

    We raced through our cabin and into the hall
    To the very top deck, in time for us all

    To be awed by the sight of Old Santa's sleigh
    As he lightly touched down, by the midnight buffet

    With a bundle of goodies thrown over his back
    He rose in the air and dropped down the smokestack

    Santa went straight to work, and later we learned
    He found every child's cabin, from the bow to the stern

    Insides and oceanviews, balconies and suites
    Santa filled every stocking, with toys and with treats

    Until all his deliveries had been handled with care
    Then he noted he still had a minute to spare

    So he surfed the wave rider, with nary a fall
    While Dasher and Dancer scaled the rock-climbing wall

    And Prancer, who had always been fond of the cold
    Tried the ice-skating rink, a sight to behold

    And then with a whistle, Santa summoned his team
    And he bade us farewell, silent nights and sweet dreams

    And I heard him exclaim, as he flew out of view
    Merry Christmas to all, and to all, a good cruise.
