The 2017 Christmas Ship™ Festival
 November 24 – December 23, 2017 

The Argosy Cruises Christmas Ship™
Festival is a ship-to-shore holiday
celebration that has been a Northwest
tradition since 1949. 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. Choirs
on board the Christmas Ship™ perform
to guests aboard as well as to our Follow Boats and to those communities gathered on shore. Select your preferred way to experience the Christmas Ship and prepare for the holiday event of the season! More festival details here...
The 3rd Annual Christmas Ship™ Parade of Boats Night will add a special twinkle to Lake Union on the evening of Friday, December 15 between 7pm and 9pm.  More details here for Parade night!
