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, to fellow boats and to communities gathered on shore. Select your preferred way to experience the Christmas Ship and prepare for the holiday event of the season!

Below is a list of dates Argosy’s festival visits Kirkland’s shoreline. For a full Argosy Christmas Ship Festival schedule, visit www.argosycruises.com.
