How to celebrate holidays onboard?

Family of four -- 50-ish parents, kids 17 & 22, will be spending holidays on Western Caribbean cruise. On other websites I've read about decorating cabin w/lights, small trees, etc. If those of you who've cruised over Christmas have suggestions -- did you bother to take cabin decorations or just enjoy those on the ship? -- please post them here. Is Christmas dinner a big celebration? Other tips on what to expect? Thanks!

Decorating your cabin with lights is a fire hazard. Decorate your cabin door.

Enjoy the ship's decorations...there will be plenty of them. Stop worrying, the holiday meal celebrations are very traditional and fun. I have spent Thanksgiving cruising in Barbados, another year in early Dec. we were in port in St. Thomas and the entire dock was festooned with live Christmas trees waiting to be placed on board. Christmas cruising in Mexico and New Year's in Aruba. Hanukah was celebrated one year cruising to Hawaii. The ships make a big deal to ensure you have a great trip. And you will. Bon voyage!

Aruba is quite festive with Christmas lights on all the palm trees.
New Year's Eve can be quite interesting when you are celebrating the midnight hour aeveral times during the night to accommodate the different time zones of the different nations on board.
Happy Holidays!! Enjoy your cruise!!

Why drag all that stuff with you?
Enjoy the ship. The decorations will be beautifull.
