It wasn't Halloween...it was some sort of a swingers cruise,
but is it time again for the infamous.....

Last year the Carnival site had a post that all ship sailings from Oct 16 - Oct 31 would have Halloween festivities, so not entirely sure about this year but I would imagine it would be pretty close.

Last year we sailed the Oct 31 sailing on the Legend, the most sexy outfits that we saw were some sexy lady pirates with a little bit of cleavage showing. The winner of the contest was an of Alice and Wonderland Themed group. There were LOTS and lots of pirates, some scarey monsters and some movie themed characters. As far as risque, you would see way more around the pool. If you are thinking about some of the sexy Halloween costumes that Victoria's Secret sells, I would not risk it. That would be way over the top. At least this was the case on our sailing.

Go and have a great time.

Well, you'll just have to use your imagination because I can't for the LIFE of me figure out how to post a picture on here!!!! I've spent 30 minutes on the "test forum" and have run out of swear words!! I have some pictures on Picassa and apparently that is where they are going to stay. SORRY.

These cruises are not all kids either

Actually Carnival seems to have cut back on the Halloween stuff since
M and M candy is not sponsoring it like they used to

Carnival used to offer Halloween decorations and parties and costume parties for several weeks in October on all sailings, now just on the actual day of Halloween itself, which falls on a weds

That is why I have switched to NCL for Halloween <grin>

I have seen some "naughty nurses", "pirate ladies", fairy's etc..some short skirts, some "bustier" tops....etc..
IMHO it also depends on your body type and age

Have seen a lot of funny costumes

One year our best "winning" guy was a conservative looking guy in his 50's...leaning up against the bar at our party....dark blue blazer, gray slacks, white shirt, burgandy tie....very staid looking

everyone would say to him "where is YOUR costume"?? "Why aren't you dressed up?"???

and he would turn around : in the back he was "nakkid" LOL>> just some polka dot drawers and socks with garters....bare back and legs haha

"I got divorced and she took half of everything" was his line haha

(He had hired a dressmaker to cutaway the back of his thrift shop jacket/shirt/pants and hold it in place with invisable nylon thread fasteners LOL)

He won the prize that year

Here are the decidedly unsexy costumes I've been working on for our cruise on the Pride this year. They still need some work, but I think they'll go over well!

Do you have a photobucket account?
Just upload them there, then click on the URL link to the right of your pic. Then, in this box, click on the yellow and black pic icon above, paste the URL and hit enter.

On Picassa, if you right click on your pic, does it give you the option to click "Properties"? If so, then do that, then copy the URL then do as stated above.

Good Luck!!

A friend of mine wore a potato on a string tied around his waist. He was a dictator. Hilarious.

We have only been on one Halloween Group cruise and went as hippies since were celebrating our 40th anniversary and were married in 1967. I though the cutest costumes were a group dressed as all the characters from Gilligans Island.

One of the finalist was a guy dressed in a sports shirt and khakis. He had a sign around his neck that said "nudist on vacation."

The worst was a guy dressed in a full Peter Pan outfit with a frying pan tied around his waist. When approached he would swing the PAN to the side revealing a "P****R made from stuffed pantyhose. Really gross on a family cruise. May have been funny at an all adult party.

The only way to settle this is to post a pic with the costume on and everyone will let you know if it's too risque or not!!!!!

Wear what makes you feel comfortable, have fun!

They used to ...more like 3 weeks. M and M candies "sponsored" their Halloween bashes....

now they only have the Halloween stuff the week of the cruise, and only if Halloween falls within your cruise week.

I saw a couple of "interesting" costumes on my Halloween cruise in 2010, but nothing like I would have seen at bars around town back home. I actually bought a sort of "sexy" Marie Antoinette costume and ended up going a different route because Halloween on our ship was also formal night. I didn't feel like having to change into my costume and I didn't feel the M.A. one was really MDR appropriate, though I also wouldn't have called it "risque".

There are some pictures in my Dream review of our costumes (I was a flapper) and some other costumes as well (link is in my signature and the Halloween pics are on the first page of the review because it was our first full day on the ship). Some people didn't dress up at all, some wore pretty simple costumes (like us), but there were also a lot of really awesome all-out costumes. Halloween on the ship was SUCH a blast, I'd do it again in a heartbeat.

Unfortunately it's true that Carnival is now only doing Halloween on the day itself. I was on the Conquest last year and that was the case. They didn't even put the decorations out until the day and then had them taken back down by the next morning.

There were some great costumes, especially among the group of transvestites that were sailing with us.
