    Halloween on a cruise

    Last year we disembarked on Halloween, 31 October from Queen Victoria. The ships chefs and all the crew were preparing for a Halloween celebration as the atrium was being turned into a graveyard/pumpkin patch. I was sad to be getting off the ship when it looked to be going to be an extravaganza.
    I realised afterwards we will embarking on Celebrity Equinox on Halloween night this year. Halloween is celebrated here in Northern Ireland and in the Isle of man but not so much in England. Im hoping, since Celebrity has a US clientele too, that there may be some celebrations. If not a Halloween ball, some kind of themed night.
    Has anyone enjoyed a Halloween night onboard a ship? What can I expect? Will there be anyone knocking on my stateroom door trick or treating?
    I once enjoyed a "Fright Night" Halloween night at Universal studios in Florida it was great fun!

    Hi I have been on two cruises on Halloween (Golden Princess and Arcadia) both were decorated in an appropriate manner. The entertainment staff on both dressed in witch/warlock attire. Few Brtiish passengers on P&O'a Arcadia bothered to dress in theme clothes. This was in stark contrast to the US passengers on Princess, many adults as well as the few children onboard dressed up. Not been accustomed to US Halloween traditions I was surprised that the adults dressed in a variety of fancy dress including The Flintstones, Blue Brothers etc., as well as witches/vampires. Nobody trick or treated (if they did I was not in the cabin).

      Is ‘Halloween’ not a celebration of the occult? Is it an appropriate theme for us God fearing folk?

        Not something that I will ever celebrate. It might have it's base origins in the occult but I am convinced that these days it is mainly a commercial venture for retailers. Why not, if they need it, just not for me though.

          We disembarked the Jade last year on Hallowe'en and it was clear that a party was in store for the next cohort! Sad to have missed it! :ohwel:
