Are you headed on a cruise this Thanksgiving?
Holiday cruising has a lot to like. There’s no worrying about the in-laws (unless you are sailing with them), cleaning house, long car trips, are worrying about dishes. Sail on Thanksgiving in particular and you get all the fun of the holiday — including a world-class meal — without having to lift a finger.
If that’s not enough, there is the menu. Cruise ships go all out for Thanksgiving, offering a special menu with traditional favorites and some new spins that you might not have tried before.
Case in point: Carnival’s Brand Ambassador John Heald just released a sneak peak of the Thanksgiving Day menu for the fleet on his Facebook page.
