Halloween Fun on a Cruise
Halloween is a time for elaborate costumes, collecting sweet treats, bobbing for apples, telling ghost stories by the light of a jack-o-lantern and watching a scary movie or two. In recent years, Halloween has become even more of an event as people decorate their homes and neighborhoods for the annual fall celebration.
Coming just before the onset of winter weather in many parts of North America, Halloween is also a great time for a cruise vacation. The good news is that you won’t necessarily miss out on your favorite traditional Halloween activities.
Some cruise ships celebrate Halloween with costume contests, treats and activities for all ages. For example, Royal Caribbean ships decorate for the holiday and host costume contests, parades and dance parties. Halloween-themed movies are shown and families can enjoy "scary story time” together. Passengers are welcome to bring their own costumes, but if you forget to pack yours, you can also make one on board.
Royal Caribbean ships also have some Halloween activities just for kids, such as making Halloween crafts, trick-or-treating around the ship and exploring a spooky haunted house.
In the past, some cruise lines have even offered murder-mystery cruises that coincide with Halloween.
