Was this the year that you and the family finally decided to take that cruise you'd been discussing for, well, ever?

Spending the season on the seas is a tradition for many people, though most of us find ourselves landlubbed as the holidays draw near.

There's so much wrapping, and school-play-ing, and relative-visiting to be done, and heading out onto the waves for a whimsical jaunt isn't always in the Christmassy cards.

What can be in the cards, though? Finding a celebratory, on-the-stage spectacular that happens to be A) on a famous ocean-liner but B) an ocean-liner that isn't leaving the land it sits snugly alongside.

It's the Queen Mary we speak of, and its annual Holiday Dinner Show, which is opening for a multi-night run as we enter the final stretch to Christmas.

The "song and dance review" is billed as being the kind of experience you'd find on a cruise ship, and that it will take place in one of the funnel-topped landmark's historic salons only ups that cruise-tastic feel.
