So I am counting down to my first ever cruise, which will be taking place this fall. Since I'll be on the ship on Halloween, I was wondering what Halloween on a Carnival Cruise is like, if I really ought to pack a costume, and if so, if there are any good suggestions out there. I'm a guy (in case that affects costume ideas).

Also, my Birthday will also be occurring during the cruise, so I guess I was wondering about that too...I checked the "Birthday" box when booking on the Carnival website, wonder if that gets me a cookie or anything :-P.

Thanks in advance for any advice!

Halloween is great on the ship! You will be surprised at all the wacky costumes. They have a party on the promenade, and then a contest on the lido for best costume. It was hilarious!

Have never cruised on my BD, but Mr.O does and hopefully he will see this and give some details.

We were on the Miracle October 6th last year and Carnival did a whole month of "Halloween" on all their ships. It was a hoot. Trick or treats for the kids, costume contests etc one night. Everyone had a great time.

I would assume they are going to do it again this year. It was sponsored by the M & M company.

I'll be cruising on Halloween this year. I have my wolfman costume ready to go. The wife is just going to get trashed and go as Lindsay Lohan.

^^make sure she's authentic and wears her alcohol moniter around her ankle. She'll need it while cruising.

Aoumd, they will also sing "Happy Birthday" to you in the dining room. Usually, other cruisers join in and then applaude.

I know its a big deal for the cast (dancers and actors and techies) My daughter dances for Carnival and when Halloween comes around she has been planning for months what to wear, how to get it to the ship, coordinate with the other dancers, what they will do etc etc. I think most of this happens in the crew quarters, but if its such a big deal below decks it probably is a big deal for the guests also.
She was cat woman last year, I was almost embarased when I saw the photos of my daughter. It had to be a super hero year. Nothing revealing but very WOW. One year she was a Butterfly, all hand made stuff and really good.

Wow! Thanks for all the responses so far! I would say "I'm countin' down the days" but I think the ticker at the bottom says that better .
Now's the hard part: I have to figure out what I'm going to dress up as...
