Default Re: Halloween...do they do anything for kids?

Can't guarantee what a particular ship and program will do but I can relate our experience last year on Ocean Princess. We sailed on Oct 31. Nothing was done for the kids that day as no one had participated in the children's program as yet. The ship was decorated in public spaces in a Halloween/Thanksgiving style (pumpkins Etc.).
The next day apparently all the kids made costumes in the childrens program. In the evening, the kids were escorted throughout the ship in a sort of Halloween parade. They stopped at the pursers desk and at many of the bars and lounges where crew had prepared trick or treat gift bags for them at each location. I can only say by observation that the children (and adults observing) had a very good time. I hope your ship does the same.

Me too, Papa Bill!!! Thanks so much ....we're sailing on
RCI Vision for a short family get together and we're really going only because of the ship...such a beauty and I've not sailed on this one before.....the itinerary is Baja Mex. so no big deal there....I'm hoping that there will be other kids for my daughter to play with and if they don't have anything planned, I intend to ask the purser to arrange something...(for some reason,purser's seem to have a lot of clout I've noticed! )....I don't want my child or any other kids to be going around knocking on cabin doors and bothering anyone but I did think it would be fun if they could "trick or treat" a little bit....I'm planning to bring all the candy just in case the staff doesn't prepare anything...that way, it can all be done quickly and unobtrusively with causing pax any distress....I'll need a whole suitcase for the candy!!! !

I was on a Carnival cruise for Halloween a few years ago. The kids all dressed up and trick or treated at the bars and shops on board. I think that night they had a costume party too. They all seemed to be having a great time. Have fun.
