Christmas in July Cruises

From $1,299.00 pp (twin share)

Departures

Selected Mondays & Fridays in July 2024 and 2025

Christmas in July celebrations first began in 1933 in North Carolina where it became an annual event for a summer camp. Australia has a thriving multicultural society and in South Australia many townships such as the German village of Hahndorf have strong Winter Christmas traditions. Murray Princess brings the best of our Northern Hemisphere winter culture to the Murray River for Christmas in July cruises. When winter comes around it's time to break out the mince pies, puddings and Yuletide treats. For those of us in the Southern Hemisphere, that transforms into Christmas in July.

Join us on selected 3, 4 or 7 night cruises in July 2024 and 2025, and snuggle up in the warm cosy lounges while enjoying great company.
