Carnival Adds Halloween-Themed Activities to All October Sailings

Carnival Halloween

Carnival Cruise Line is celebrating the Halloween season with its “Frightfully Fun” festivities taking place during all sailings throughout the month of October.

The month-long “spook-tacular” is highlighted by the debut of Patch the Pumpkin Pirate, a Halloween character who stands 12 feet tall and greets Carnival guests as they board each ship. Kids can gather around Patch as they enjoy Scary Story Time hosted by the cruise director.

Trick-or-treaters can stock up on candy and other treats from costumed crew members at different venues throughout the ship. The event concludes with a costume contest, with prizes for the most creative outfits.

All-ages activities including Thriller dance classes, Patch’s Deck Party, Halloween-themed trivia and bingo, and pumpkin-carving contests, along with poolside DiveIn Movies showing films like Hotel Transylvania 3:  Summer Vacation, Dracula Untold and It. Guests can also enjoy Halloween treats and custom libations like Witches Brew and the Green Goblin

Carnival Cruise Line, part of Carnival Corporation, owns a fleet of 26 ships operating three- to 24-day voyages to The Bahamas, Caribbean, Mexican Riviera, Alaska, Hawaii, Canada, New England, Bermuda, Cuba, Australia, New Zealand, the Pacific Islands and Southeast Asia.  The line currently has three new ships scheduled for delivery – the 133,500-ton Carnival Panorama set to debut in 2019 and two as-yet-unnamed 180,000-ton ships in 2020 and 2022.
