Ships sailing at night covered with holiday lights for the annual Christmas Ship festival.

A Northwest Tradition for over 70 years.

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 40 in all. Choirs on board the Christmas Ship™ perform to guests aboard, to follow boats, and to communities gathered on shore.

10% of all Christmas Ship™ Festival ticket proceeds and 100% of photo proceeds are donated to The Seattle Times Fund For Those In Need.
