Halloween Themed Cruises

During the month of October many cruise lines get into the
Halloween spirit by having celebrations and trick-or-treating on the 31st,
however a couple of cruise lines go all out and begin celebrating as early as
September. If you are considering cruising during the Halloween holiday, here
are some things to consider.

  • If you are not planning to celebrate the
    holiday know that most cruise lines will offer Halloween festivities on October
    31, such as a costume party and trick-or-treating.
  • On the other hand if you welcome the thought
    of a spooktacular-themed cruise, then consider cruising on Disney Cruise Lines or
    Carnival because they celebrate the holiday for much longer.
  • If you will be cruising in Mexico around
    Halloween, be aware of the Dia de Los Muertos holiday celebrated there from
    October 21-November 2.It is not equivalent
    to Halloween as it is a holiday where Mexican people celebrate the passing of
    loved ones, but while you are there you will find decorations and Dia de Los
    Muertos themes.

Our very own Kaela Jarvis recently cruised on Disney Magic
from NYC to Quebec and was able to take in the whole ghostly experience.“I really enjoyed one of the evenings when
they acted out a live scary story for the kids in the promenade. People were dressed
up as characters from the “Nightmare before Christmas”. When all the kids were huddled around watching
the show the giant tree covered in pumpkins came to life!! The tree moved and
stretched, the pumpkins glowed, and the kids screamed, it was priceless.”

Disney ships are decorated for the holiday with
jack-o-lantern faces in the porthole windows, spiderwebs made of pearl strands (ala
Cinderella) and of course the pumpkin tree in the atrium.Special activities during a Halloween cruise
include costume contests, trick-or-treating, spooky desserts, haunted stories
at sea, Halloween movies under the stars or in your stateroom, as well as
adults-only nighttime parties.

If you are interested in a unique themed cruise, such as Halloween, give us a call and start planning your dream vacation today!

From Our Clients...

Spectacular Shore Excursions

"Everything worked out even better than planned. On all three shore excursions we met people in the bus who said they appreciated those excursions and they were far better than the ones offered by the ship. We, too, were impressed with the quality of the excursions and tour guides. The cruise was spectacular and all the arrangements made in advance were spectacular."
– Jayne W. - Norwegian Cruise Line

Not a Single Thing To Worry About

"Everything had been taken care of from beginning to end. Not a single thing to worry about once we arrived at the airport until we touched down after our week long vacation. Also, Rachel specifically, everyone was great at making sure we knew what to expect before we left and made sure all questions had been answered." 
– Matthew R. - Hard Rock Punta Cana

Once In A Lifetime Trip

I was talking about TravelPerks during our state presentation, and a member commented that they had booked cruises through TravelPerks and had a fabulous experience! They both said that you guys were super easy to work with and explained everything well and they felt cared for. It's not often we get members interrupting a presentation to put it out there that they had a great experience!

Special Experience

Appreciated the desire and willingness to do whatever it took to make our trip memorable.  There are always things that can't be helped [flight delays] but it was easy to see the effort put into making the experience special."

Booking a Vacation is FUN!

"In today’s environment, booking vacations is hard. Why? There are a million and one websites out there that all have information on them. You can look at peer reviews until you are blue in the face. Is this ship really that bad? Is it the best thing ever? Is the resort awesome? Was it an isolated incident? Who knows.And sorting through all of them and figuring out what is real and what is somebody making a mountain out of a molehill takes time.

Which is where Theresa comes in. We love working with her for our vacations. It generally involves a quick phone call giving her a budget and the vibe we are looking for. And then go on an awesome vacation. No pecking through reviews and pricing that should be written in hieroglyphics. Just straight-up advice and no-nonsense planning.

Prior to using Theresa’s team, I would spend hours planning and routing and reading. Now? I pick the phone up or I email the awesome team and they takecare of me and we get to enjoy our vacation. If you are booking a large group or an intimate vacation, I highly recommend Theresa and her team. Awesome to do business with and they make vacations FUN!"
