When Hallmark announced its new, immersive, Christmas-themed cruise last month, fans jumped at the chance to experience a winter wonderland at sea. The cruise sold out within just one day of the pre-sale, leaving many fans disappointed to miss out on the opportunity. Hallmarkies can rejoice, as a second sailing of the cruise has been added.

The new cruise will sail from Miami to the Bahamas from November 17-21, 2024 (the first cruise sails November 5-9). Booking priority will be given first to fans on the waiting list, followed by those who joined the presale. Notification will be sent via email for early bookings, and booking will open to the general public on August 7.

The second cruise will include all the magical Hallmark holiday movie charm of the first: hosted on the Norwegian Gem, the floating yuletide party will feature festive cookie decorating, ugly sweater contests, wine tasting and Christmas carol karaoke. There will be a special tree lighting at the start, and passengers can attend a premiere screening of the newest Hallmark Channel movie, Countdown to Christmas. Guests will also have the chance to mingle with yet-to-be-announced Hallmark holiday movie regulars who will be on board for photo ops and panel discussions.
