Holiday Decoration on the Cruise

How soon do they decorate the ships and Castaway Cay for Christmas? Do they start right after Halloween? I plan on going the first week of November next year and want to see the Christmas decor if possible. Thanks

In the past it has been the week prior to Thanksgiving. Unfortunate for me since I board tomorrow.

From what I've read this is correct.

It takes between one and two weeks to fully decorate, and they plan to have it all done by Thanksgiving. Since the holiday is early this year, my guess is that the decorations will go up a little earlier than normal as well.

They will come down on the last night of the New Years cruise. We have boarded on Jan 3 and 5 and found no evidence of the holiday remaining. Also, on the holiday cruise, a middle of the night stroll will reveal "elves" hard at work.
