Holiday Cruising: Consider cruising during the month of October to celebrate Halloween in 2024!

Halloween, the holiday of Magic and mystery , a Holiday for kids and adults alike to dress up and eat our favorite candies; and in honor of Halloween I’m giving you 5 reasons to think about booking your next Cruise during this fun spirited Holiday ! Cruising is already such a great way to travel but booking during a Holiday such as Halloween you are sure to have an even more unique experience ! So here are five reasons you should spend Halloween 2024 on the High Seas!

#1 - Autumn Foliage

Nothing compliments Halloween like Autumn Foliage. Which you will be surrounded by on your cruise in the beautiful month of October. Imagine you’re on your balcony in the brisk morning and across your way are the most beautiful red, gold and auburn leaves as you tour New England and Canada. There is something about the air in Fall that brings relaxation and joy knowing the Holiday Season is just around the corner , and what better way to start off the Holidays on a Cruise ship to relax, dress up and celebrate the season!

#2 - Activities for Kids & the Family!

Cruising is already great for a family trip but during Halloween time Cruise Staff turns it up a notch with their themed outfits, from make up to their hair!

The staff does a great job organizing fresh and fun Halloween events for all !

Halloween is for everyone of all ages so it only makes sense that some cruise lines go the extra mile to accommodate everyone aboard their ships during the holidays and Halloween is no different except in my opinion its just more fun! From enchanting themed witches brew cocktails to costume contests and spooky entertainment that will have you in fright by the end of the night ! Cruising during Halloween with a group of friends could be just the vacation you need !
