A Halloween extravaganza will take place on board Carnival Cruise ships this Halloween.

The promotion called ‘Frightfully Fun’ is bound to be a hit for those on family cruises as children’s activities will be a central part of the cruise .

There will be trick and tricking events for children up to 14 years. They will be allowed to creep along the promenades collecting chocolate treats as they go.

No Halloween cruise will be complete without a costume contest, so make sure you go all out when picking your Halloween costume .

Vicki Freed, senior vice president of sales and marketing at the cruise line said, “At Carnival [Cruises], Halloween is always a special occasion and the ‘Frightfully Fun’ festivities provides guests of all ages with a unique and memorable way to celebrate this festive holiday, with activities and other events not found anywhere else.”

There will be something for everyone on board the ship from scary film screenings for adults and children can have their photo taken with ‘Fun Ship Freddy’ which is unique to Carnival Cruise lines.

Halloween cruises will set sail between 13 – 20 October, so book early to avoid disappointment. Ring Fasttrack cruises 0871 226 8117 for further information.
