Carol Ships - Downtown Vancouver: Christmas Dinner Cruise for One or Two from Carol Ships (55% Off)

Boat captains must master nautical lexicon before sailing the seas to ensure that they can distinguish port, which means left, from starboard, which means launch the vessel into deep space. Count down to a sea launch with this Groupon.

Choose Between Two Options

  • $45 for a Carol Ships dinner cruise for one (a $99 value)
  • $89 for a Carol Ships dinner cruise for two (a $198 value)

The cruise boards at 6 p.m. for a 6:30 p.m. departure. After three hours out on Coal Harbour––a spin that includes a dinner buffet––the ship returns to port.

Carol Ships Parade of Lights

When the first Carol Ship unmoored from the dock in Coal Harbour, its decks decked out in twinkling Christmas lights, the year was 1961. At the time, its only mission was a simple celebration of the season, complete with carols and merry-making. Passengers also danced, dined on a Christmas feast, and, between sips of eggnog, drank in the sights of the city gussied up in holiday splendour. Little did they know--could they have known--that they were beginning a Vancouver tradition.

Today, that lone cruise has blossomed into a glittering spectacle of more than 50 decorated boats and more than 100,000 lights on peak nights in December. Throughout the month, more than 30,000 people participate in the procession, either on private yachts or participating charter vessels. While the bedazzled boats parade across the water, a number of shoreside events also take place throughout the month, treating holiday revelers to refreshments.

Tips

we enjoyed our evening on the Carol Ships, the staff were very pleasant, trying to accomodate our requests. The food was great and the spirit of the season for a lot of fun. We as a family have traditionally gone to the Stanly park train, but skipped this year and did the ship instead. Not sure if we would have done the carol ships without the groupon but glad we did and will keep it in mind for next year

Had an awesome time. Service was excellent. Food was great. The only bad part of the whole thing was that is was raining. Will definitely do this again even without the groupon.
