Default Halloween cruising.....

Has anyone cruised during Halloween and know what kinds of parties they have during this time? We're on the Fantasy during Halloween and are wondering how to plan.

This is one of those cruises I want to do one day. I have done a lot of research, so this is what I found out.

It is party time for the whole ship, so be sure to take your costume from home. There is a party for the young and not so young.

The ship will be decorated for the occasion to get you in the mood.

There will be trick or treating for the young ones with the different stores giving out the candy.

I hope you have a great cruise, and will come back and let us know how you liked it.

We've been twice on Halloween. Once on the Holiday and once on the Pride. Both times there were costume all over the ship. and of course a Costume contest. Lots of fun for all. We also bring one of those plastic door decoration to tape onto our door, just for fun. We hear lots of feedback from people walking down the halls. I took black silk roses for our table mates for fun.

Was on the Miracle last year near Halloween and they celebrated on cruises close to Halloween too. The costume parade was fun and they ran a contest for best costume. The winner on our cruise was a pirate with a small child dressed as a parrot on his shoulder. A lot of people appearantly planned well in advance.

I sort of figured they'd have parties etc. We''ll be sure to pack the costumes for a great time. I heard on another post a year or so ago that the Conquest puts on a good show, and was wondering about the rest of the fleet.

Thanks
