I got a t-shirt for pirate night. Just you basic black tee with skull and cross bones and it says pirate. But the word is spelled with the math symbol for Pi. I'm a geeky pirate.

Love the idea of waiting for AFTER Halloween to buy pirate costumes!

Love it. That sounds like the kind of geeky thing that would amuse me.

Ha! I have the exact same shirt. And DH's shirt says "Pirate Eligibility Test: What's the 18th letter of the alphabet?". And DS's shirt is kind of a fake pirate front shirt with fake sword and everything.

The first cruise DS and I dressed up. It was fun to do once. The shirts are simpler and take up less space in our luggage these days ...

If you want to do it, go for it.

We did matching personalized T Shirts from one of the awesome Disigners on the boards - Tebi73. She doesn't disign currently but you can browse through her old designs and hopefully you will be lucky enough to find the names you are seeking. We got lots of compliments on our shirts but the best was from Mickey Mouse himself. He noticed his picture on DS 's shirt and started pointing at it and then himself. Then the CM handler pointed out that I was wearing a shirt with his girlfriends picture. He then pointed to Minnie on my shirt and made a heart symbol with his hands. It was the cutest thing.

We did for our Magic cruise in 2011, and we will be doing it again in October on the Fantasy.

This a picture from the last cruise




This time, the two little ones will be doing Pirates League and my wife and I will be dressing up with costumes from home.

I do dress up sometimes because my costume is extremely detailed it requires it's own suitcase, therefore if I cannot avoid that extra luggage fee at the airport I do not bring it.

Hehe. The lil dude with the mustache cracks me up!

Yes we will be dressing up too again. I have an awesome cavalier hat too and lots of accessories from my renaissance faire days.

I will say I think I'm skipping the corset next time in favor of a wide stretch belt! haha too much eating I need to do with dinner and the pirate buffet!

No, never. But I love to look at the costumes of those who do. I have room in the suitcase for shoes or costumes - guess which wins? I also hate packing so one less item to plan works for me.

You'll see lots of adults with and without children dressed up so whatever makes you comfortable. We usually plan for Palo's or Remy's for pirate night and plan not to go to the pirate party but we always end up there anyway. Last cruise for the first time our tablemates talked us into going to the pirate buffet. We had late dining and were still stuffed from dinner but did go in and had dessert crepes. So glad I did. That really gets you in the mood and gives you maximum opportunity to appreciate everyone else's costumes.

Go for it!

Yep, I'm waiting for the post-Halloween sales to stock up on Pirate gear. It also helps that a local school mascot is the Pirate.

We haven't yet but we really want to for the next cruise. Just seems like every cruise we get busier and busier.

The personalized Tee sounds like a great idea.

Did you guys do iron-ons or ordered them from Vista (or similar)?

I just bought the iron on transfers at Walmart and printed the designs on my ink jet printer.
