We were on a Mex Riviera cruise over Halloween several years ago. I was surprised how many people brought costumes. There were a lot of young adults, as it was a 7-day cruise. The Sapphire Princess' atrium was nicely decorated and there were decorations on all the bars. This year we'll be on the Ruby P TA over Halloween, which happens to be the first day of our six crossing the Atlantic. There will be a huge crowd of CCers onboard and we're having a private Halloween Party, costumes optional, but masks strongly encouraged. After all, we depart from Venice, known for its masks.

I think between all of us, we should research the best cruise for Halloween next year and book it. Then we could do a giant M&G. And have costume parties. I've been dying to go on a halloween cruise. It's my fav time of the year.

We are booked on a Halloween cruise this year. I was wondering about the best, most unique, most common, worst, etc. costumes you all have seen on a cruise.

Well I figure that there will probably be quite a few pirates, so we won't go that route. I have been trying to think of something clever and cruise or water related that won't be hard to pack or difficult to maneuver in. I am just drawing blanks. I would love to see pictures too!

You have me thinking! But I dont know if you're male or female! A Captains costume should be easy to put together and travel with. A sea creature; Tattered clothes and a mask/face paint? Gilligan?

We are on the Allure during Halloween this year. Many on our Roll Call have done Halloween cruises before and they've all said it's a HUGE party with costume competitions, parade and a Haunted House...

Anyone with pictures from on board a Halloween cruise ? Any cruise line!

I would guess that anyone who enjoys getting dressed up for Halloween would bring a costume and get dressed up on board if Halloween is during their cruise. Where are the pictures folks!?

We did a Halloween cruise last year and dressed up, as did a large number of other guests. It was on the Carnival Inspiration. There was a costume contest and lots of partying going on. They had those big Halloween inflatables and other decorations in a lot of the common areas. We saw many doors decorated with cobwebs and paper tombstones and other Halloween decor. We had a great time and were impressed with how many very creative costumes we saw people in. So even if dressing up isn't your thing, it's still interesting to see what other people dress up as. We are going again this year on the Carnival Paradise and will wear our same cowboy/cowgirl costumes we wore last year since they are easy and comfy.
