Christmas Ship™ Festival

Calendar/Event Details

Argosy Cruises Christmas Ship™ Festival is a ship-to-shore holiday celebration that has been a Northwest tradition for 70 years. The Spirit of Seattle, the Official Christmas Ship™, is decorated with hundreds of shimmery white lights and sails to different Puget Sound waterfront communities – around 65 in all. 

There are three ways to enjoy the Christmas Ship Festival, book a ticket on the actual Christmas Ship, book a ticket on a 21+ follow boat or, the free option, gather on shore at one of its many stops around the sound and Lake Washington to enjoy the choir and see the lighted ship. Many communities put on special events during these stops, check the schedule on the website for specifics!
