My wife and I always say we won’t cruise during hurricane season, since work requires vacations be scheduled so far in advance, and can be canceled but not easily rescheduled. However, having a healthy obsession for cruising, and with Halloween being my favorite holiday, I think it would be fun to combine the two, so here’s a few questions.
1: Have you ever been on a Carnival Halloween cruise, and if so where did you sail from and to?
2: Overall, did you enjoy your cruise and would you book another one?
3: What things did you like or dislike, that you don’t experience on a non-Halloween cruise?
4: Did you experience any hurricane related issues (rough weather or seas, itinerary changes, cancelation of your cruise, etc)?
5: Do guests wear costumes on multiple nights, or does Carnival designate a costume night?
6: If elegant night falls on Halloween (or costume night), how do people dress in the MDR?
7: I’ve read that Carnival does not allow masks/helmets that cover your entire face. Can you carry one as an costume accessory, if you do not wear it?
8: Do crew members get to dress in costumes during any part of the cruise?
9: Are multiple ares of the ship decorated or just the area with Patch?
10: Since the smaller ships or shorter cruises don’t always have the same things as larger ships and longer cruises, are there many differences based on your ship and/or itinerary?
11: Are there Halloween themed food and/or drink options onboard?
12: Did you visit any ports that had Halloween or Dia de los Muertos related decorations or activities?
13: Are there any unwritten rules or guidelines to be aware of?
