Get ready to party . . . because these celebratory events were just made for cruises


Go nuts in Brazil for the Rio Carnival

Cruise into Rio de Janeiro for its famous February fiesta and join the best party on the planet as the streets come alive with exuberant samba dancers in a cacophony of music and colour. As ships stay for two days during sailings of South America, you can quite literally party the night away.

Race with the jet-set in Monte Carlo

Moor up with mega-yachts and dip into the high-octane glitz and glamour of the Monaco Grand Prix, to catch the high-speed thrills of Formula 1’s finest. Azamara Club Cruises, P&O Cruises and Silversea join these festivities, held every May, and offer special VIP race day packages too.


Celebrate New Year in Sydney

Ring in the New Year from a perfect vantage point in Sydney Harbour as your ship moors close to the famous bridge to watch the city light up under a sky full of fireworks before sailing for New Zealand.


Sail along the Rhine in Flames

It’s not quite as dramatic as it sounds, but this famous river comes alive every summer with a stunning display of fireworks set to music that explodes into the skies above Germany’s Rhine Gorge each July – a perfect accompaniment to river cruises with Saga Holidays and Shearings.

Get set for Mardi Gras in New Orleans

Are you ready for the party of your life? This fabulous Big Easy blow-out is one crazy celebration with the streets of New Orleans’ atmospheric French Quarter erupting with parties and parades. Stay and celebrate for three days in February before your ship sails for the Caribbean.


Revel in Venice’s Redentore Festival

This Renaissance city’s domes and bell towers make the perfect classical backdrop to fireworks that light up the skies in this fantastic fiesta held every July, with cruise ships joined by fleets of decorated gondolas.
