Experience a unique Vancouver tradition this holiday season! The Carol Ships Parade of Lights Festival occurs each December, when the Vancouver harbor comes alive with the luminous colors of brightly decorated boats. Take part in this magical time on the Vancouver Holiday Dinner and Carols Cruise. Holiday spirit is in full swing on your cruise, which includes a delicious, hearty dinner and traditional carolers who will lead you in all the yuletide favorites.
Get into the holiday spirit aboard the 2.5-hour Vancouver Holiday Dinner and Carols Cruise! This is a fabulous way to see all of the brightly decorated ships in the Vancouver harbor during the city’s annual Carol Ships Parade of Lights Festival.
Every December, Vancouver lights up with a flotilla of decked-out vessels, festively decorated on the outside and full of their Christmas best on the inside. Participating boats meet in the evenings and set off in parade formation on a designated route, which varies on any given night. The parade routes can include False Creek, North and West Vancouver, or Deep Cove.
Enjoy all of the classic comfort foods of the holidays and hum along to familiar tunes while your fully decorated boat participates in the parade. The meal includes roast turkey, ham, traditional sides, desserts and much more, all served buffet style. Christmas carolers entertain you with yuletide favorites, but if you don’t know all the words, don’t worry – song sheets are provided at each table. On the weekend dance cruise, you’ll not only be entertained by carolers, but also have a chance to dance off your meal to music spun by the onboard DJ.
