Happy Halloween Cruising

Halloween Fun @ Sea

If you’re spending Halloween aboard a cruise ship, you can expect a costume party aboard.  In fact, Carnival Cruise IMG_0831Lines celebrates Halloween the entire month by having a costume party on every cruise.  So, that’s how we found ourselves scurrying at the last minute for a costume while sailing the Carnival Pride in 2006.  The cruise director announced the costume party during his morning announcements, encouraging anyone who didn’t have a costume to borrow a bed sheet from their cabin steward to create a toga.  We’re always up for a good time on the ship, so we found our cabin stewards and designed a fashionable toga from a bed sheet.  As you can tell from our dinner picture, we each added on our own touch to make our toga unique, from bow ties to pearls to silk flowers to sunglasses.  What a fun evening!  (I have not personally sailed Costa Cruise Line, but I understand they have a toga night on every Caribbean cruise.  So if you’re a toga kind of person, you might want to sail with Costa!) 


HalloweenWe enjoyed that so much, some of our gang now sails every year at Halloween.  In fact, some of our friends are aboard the Carnival Splendor right now, and, before they left,  they were telling me all about the costumes they were taking for the cruise, and I can’t wait to see their pictures when they return.  As you can tell from this picture from last year’s cruise aboard the Carnival Spirit, the costumes have definitely improved from our simple togas in 2006, although togas never go out of style. 

So, if you are a kid at heart who still loves Halloween and dressing for Halloween, you would love a Halloween cruise.  You can book it now to give you time to pay it off over time, and it also gives you time to round up all your friends to come along as well to have a fabulous Halloween party at sea. 

And, these are my cruising buddies … if you’d like to join us  for a fun cruise, we’d love to have you.  Our next cruise is the Carnival Dream sailing September 11, 2010, for 7 nights from Port Canaveral to the Eastern Caribbean, then the Carnival Miracle sailing January 22, 2011, for 8 nights from Fort Lauderdale to the Southern Caribbean. 

Happy Halloween, Cruisers!  What’s your Halloween costume this year?
