They were combined with Pirate Night on the last three night cruise. I don't know if they will change it in the future

Which is too bad. I guess when Disney said "in addition to" they meant "cram it all in to one night"! Happy we are doing MNSSHP post cruise!

Yeah, I'm pretty peeved.

I'm staying concierge on a 3-night Halloween cruise and shoreside concierge previously told me the Halloween party and Pirate party would be different nights. Lots of folks in my FE group were also told by customer service that the parties would be different nights, and have spent a lot of time and money putting together two costumes, one for pirate night and one for Halloween. This is also going to make the second night really exhausting, especially after schlepping around Nassau all day.

I did re-email shoreside concierge today after reading that previous thread, to ask if all the 3-night cruises would have both parties on the same night, and have yet to hear back. If I learn anything from them, I will post it on here.

If anyone who went on the 3-night Halloween cruise could post Navigators, that would be fabulous. I'm dying to know what all the activities are, even if the big ones are all squished together on the same night.

I think a lot of us chose this cruise because of Halloween. These cruises are not cheap. Separate nights would be very much appreciated. Disney shouldn't make a big deal about it and not make it special. Cramming in one night with Pirate night does lose it's appeal. With Disney one does expect only the best, otherwise there are other cruise lines to enjoy.

How dare they try to fit in as much extra stuff on a 3 night cruise without charging you an additional fee. SAVAGES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I would rather not have Disney cram it all in one night and just keep it as Pirate night. Agree, something for nothing is nice but if it doesn't live up to Disney standards then why do it? It sounds quite hectic and shortchanges Pirate night as well as Halloween. I would prefer one or the other so that it maintains the quality Disney is known for. Hopefully, it will all get worked out based on comment cards by the time we cruise in a couple of weeks. Regardless, we will have an awesome cruise.

We returned from our first ever Disney Dream cruise on Sunday. Had the best time and can't wait for a 7 night cruise in 2015. We ran out of time getting ready to cruise so it didn't bother us that Pirate Night & Halloween party were on same night.

Hope you have a wonderful cruise

I did hear back from the concierge, and it looks like the halloween party and pirate night are the same night on all 3-night cruises. They will both be on night 2. Just wanted to let people know for planning purposes.

Thank you so much for posting the night 2 Navigator. That's really helpful!
