Halloween on the High Seas
What is Halloween on the High Seas? Disney Cruise Line pulls out all the stops to help you celebrate Halloween on the Disney Cruise Line. Here is how Disney describes these spooktacular sailings:
Discover magical mischief and spellbinding surroundings as you commemorate Halloween at sea. This spook-tacular experience is available on most itineraries departing late September through Halloween. Thrills and chills await you at every turn, thanks to not-so-scary activities, eerie entertainment and bewitching décor, including a spooky Halloween tree.
Disney packs these cruises with tons of Halloween fun, including a Nightmare Before Christmas “scream along”. Remember, the longer the sailing, the more Halloween activities will be offered. Here are the ships, ports, and sailing lengths that you can take to enjoy this special themed cruise. All of the Halloween on the High Seas sailings start in September and run through October.
