Who has done a cruise over a holiday?

Who here has cruised over a holiday, and how did you like it? I've seen a lot of people say they'd be willing to cruise over Thanksgiving or New Year's but not over Christmas because they want to be home with their families. I understand that and would probably tend to agree. Also, flights are generally so much more expensive if you don't already live near the port which can discourage holiday cruises. But I'm curious what everyone's experiences here are? I've never done it. The closest I've come is sailing Carnival at the beginning of December. It was fun because there were Christmas trees and decorations up all around the ship.

We've cruised early Nov, AND early DEC...and in all honestly, do it every year, plus one in the spring. scanning the prices involved, its just another way for the cruise lines to stick it to you if you pick cruising on TDAY or XMAS. or New Years... and besides, simply refuse to fly over the holidays (or most other times), OR get involved in the madness on the road. This year was a classic weather wise. wonder how many folks actually missed the ship because it. Not for us....
