Default Fantasy Oct. 31

We are leaving on the Fantasy from New Orleans Oct. 31. Does anyone know if they will be celebrating Halloween on the same day we leave? On the Golden Princess we were able to order from the formal dinning room when it was opened. I know you can order from the menu in your cabin anytime. I have not read where you can do the same on this ship. I know I have read this before, but I am having a senior moment now. If you would like an upgrade, do you call your travel agent or the cruise line? Should I just wait a little closer and maybe get a better deal....Just wondering.

i left last year on the Destiny on oct 30 and we celebrated halloween on the 31~you could always call and ask...

there is a room service menu you can order from but i haven't heard of ordering from the dining room menu in your room...

you can call your travel agent and ask them about an upgrade and have them watch your pricing~don't know if they can do anything about the upgrade but a lot of times they'll get you the better price...

i LOVED my halloween cruise last year. it was one of the best vacations i've ever taken.

good luck and hope you have a good time

I will be on the Esctasy for Halloween this year. Can't wait!

Good people sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

Courage and perserverance have a magical talisman; before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish into the air.

Pick your company wisely! Hang around people who are going to help you become all God created you to be.

Cutiepie, when we cruised to Alaska on Princess I read where several people ordered from the dining room while they were open. We ordered most every morning. Omelets, pancakes, bacon, whatever we wanted. It was nice to sit on the balcony eating our breakfast. I do not think this is something they advertise. You do have to call the dining room, not room service or use the tag on the door. I have not seen where anyone has posted on the carnvial ships about this service.

They will be celebrating Halloween. We were on the Holiday for Halloween a few years ago and had a great time,
Some folks will decorate their doors for the Holiday.

On carnival you can't order meals from the dining room. sometimes they do serve some of the same food in the buffet.

The room menu is very limited and not that great.

Just 2 weeks left and we leave!

We are going to be on the Valor for Halloween and are really looking forward to it. Halloween is a very big holiday at our house.
