Halloween Cruises for 2019

Have you ever considered going on a cruise over Halloween? It’s never too early to plan a cruise, especially around a popular time such as Halloween so I’ve compiled a list of themed cruises that are sure to make your cruise spooktacular!

Halloween on the High Seas with Disney Cruise Line

You know that Disney will do Halloween well! Throughout Disney’s Halloween cruises there will be pumpkin carving, ghostly story-telling and adult-only costume parties.  The ships will also feature an evolving Halloween tree that eerily transforms throughout your cruise.

Frightful Fun with Carnival


Carnival Cruises generally celebrates Halloween throughout the whole of October but it’s best to check with the cruise line for specific sailings here. The cruise line invites guest to enjoy themed drinks and desserts that will send shivers down your spine. Expect lots of special activities and events so bring a costume but Carnival respectfully requests that no masks or weapons are used as part of the your costumes!

Happy On Board Halloween with Royal Caribbean

Royal Caribbean promises guests will have a gruesome good time on board all ships in the fleet sailing over Halloween. There are no special themed cruises but if you choose to cruise at the end of October expect zombies, a haunted mansion and competitions like “howl at the moon” and “girl scream”.  To find the spookiest cruises, visit Royal Caribbean’s website.

Walker Stalker Cruise 2019


Although this is not technically a ‘Halloween’ cruise, I thought it was worth mentioning the Walker Stalker Cruise taking place 21st to 25th February 2019 for fans of The Walking Dead.  This zombie-themed cruise on the Norwegian Pearl will play host to actors from the hit TV series during the four day cruise from Tampa to Nassau, Bahamas.

Have you been bitten by the Halloween cruise bug? I’d love to hear from you if you’ve experience festivities on board. What was it like? Did you dress up?

Happy cruising!
