Halloween on a cruise ship, what could be better than trick or treating at sea? If you or your kids have some time off this Halloween, taking a cruise might be a great way to spend some quality family time and not miss trick or treating. Many of the major cruise lines like Carnival, Royal Caribbean, Disney go all out for Halloween- and even encourage passengers to pack costumes and decorations for their cabins.
#1 Disney Cruise Line
If you have kids there is no better place to spend your Halloween at sea than aboard a Disney Cruise Ship. Starting in late September, Disney decorates their cruise ships with a “spooktacular” Halloween theme- and holds special parties and entertainment that is designed to be not too scary for little kids. Some of the highlights aboard a Disney Halloween Cruise include a “Mickey’s Mouse-querade Party” and Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas Sing and Scream. Make sure to pack your costume and be prepared to go trick-or-treating with your favorite Disney Characters. In addition, there will be mask making and pumpkin carving activities and of course movie night will include ghost stories. And if you have the strength there will be an adults-only costume party too.
#2 Carnival Cruise Line
Carnival Cruise Line calls it’s Halloween cruises “Frightfully Fun” vacations offering passengers scary movie options, pumpkin carving demonstrations, and Halloween themed drinks and desserts. Highlights include a Halloween Day Parade and a Costume Meet and Greet which will give passengers the chance to walk around the ship in costume. Once the sun sets things to get even spookier when Carnival converts its nightclubs and casinos into a Monster Mash at sea. One important note- is to make sure your costume is appropriate for a family cruise and does not have weapons (even fake weapons) as those will not be permitted on your cruise ship.

Children Injured on Cruise Ships
