Carnival Imagination Holding Month-Long ‘Spook-tacular’ Halloween

June 22, 2017.

Fans of Halloween should look closely at a cruise aboard Carnival Imagination this coming October.  While Carnival always shows its guests a great time on Halloween cruises, this year the festivities will be taken to another level on the ship, with a month-long spook-tacular with “extra scares” on the three- and four-day cruises from Long Beach, Calif.

From October 1-31, guests aboard Carnival Imagination will enjoy a host of fun Halloween-themed activities, everything from costume contests and dance parties to scary story times complete with s’mores and warm cider.   Other activities include Halloween parades, pumpkin-carving demonstrations, arts and crafts classes, and classic horror movies on the big screen.   It all culminates, of course, with trick-or-treating for kids and adults alike along the Promenade.

Carnival Imagination will be in full “haunted ship” mode with an elaborate “spooky tree” in the atrium and team members decked out in the scariest of costumes while leading Thriller dance classes, so get busy practicing your moonwalk!

Carnival Imagination now features many popular venues including Guy’s Burger Joint,  Alchemy Bar,  BlueIguana Cantina,  RedFrog Rum Bar, BlueIguana Tequila Bar, and the 312-foot-long Twister water slide.

Carnival Imagination departs Long Beach on Fridays on three-day cruises to Ensenada and Mondays on four-day voyages to Ensenada and Catalina Island.
