Aleisha Fittler, GM Product, commented: “Christmas and New Year is a popular time for people to travel with many choosing to get away so they don’t have to worry about anything at this really busy time of year. It is particularly popular for families and we often have multiple generations travelling with us at Christmas. We love that our guests choose to spend it with us and go out of our way to make their festive experience extra special.”
The new 28 page Magical Wonders of Christmas in Europe and Canada brochure is out now.
