Attention, all Hallmarkies: it is time to pack your bags for the “Jolliest Vacation Ever!”

The Hallmark Channel announced its first ever Christmas-themed cruise to set sail in November 2024. Devoted Hallmark fans will be immersed in the world of holiday magic, complete with fan-favorite Hallmark stars and cheesy holiday activities.

Through a partnership with theme cruise charter company Sixthman, Hallmark fans will embark on the holiday celebration of a lifetime.

“Loyal fans will celebrate timeless Hallmark Channel Christmas traditions and create new ones with their families, a ship full of Hallmarkies and Hallmark Channel’s holiday stars,” said Jeff Cuellar, vice president of events, marketing and community for Sixthman, per The Hollywood Reporter.

“Leave your puffy jacket and grab your Christmas spirit and passion for Hallmark Channel Christmas movies as we set sail on the most heartwarming, holly jolly experience on the high seas.”

Here is everything we know about the Hallmark Channel cruise.

Hallmark cruise passengers will experience a winter wonderland

The Hallmark cruise will be hosted on the Norwegian Gem, which will be decked out to look like a Hallmark-esque winter wonderland.

“We hear time and time again that people want to immerse themselves in the world of Hallmark Channel Christmas movies and this venture is sure to bring our brand to life in a new, captivating way,” Natalie Vandergast, Hallmark Media’s vice president of consumer products, said in a press release for the cruise, per People.

Passengers will have the opportunity to participate in holiday-themed activities such as ugly sweater contests, Christmas cookie decorating, Christmas Carol-oke, Hallmark movie marathons, tree lighting ceremonies, holiday crafts and wine tastings, according to Hallmark.

Every guest will also be invited to a ship-exclusive world premiere for a new Hallmark Christmas movie
