    We were on the Fantasy for Halloween. DCL doesn't do much for Halloween, so if you are looking for a great halloween experience you will probably be disappointed.

    I did post the navigator for that day in this thread http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=3035397

    It will give you a good idea of what to expect.

    When we went on a cruise around Halloween they had trick or treat stations set up one night on the cruise... Did the fantasy at least do that?

    The Dream did not this year. We had to switch the CC day/sea day because of Sandy, though. So whereas Halloween should have fallen on a sea day, it was the CC day instead. That may have put a damper on their plans. There were CMs wandering around the Halloween party (up on the pool deck) dumping handfuls of candy into kids' bags, but no trick-or-treating. In fact, just yesterday my 8yo was lamenting the fact that her candy bag wasn't "filled to overflowing" (her words!) as usual when we are home. It's a long story involving it being a surprise cruise, but we will never do another Halloween cruise again. It just wasn't special enough for my kids. As in, they would rather have had the one big Halloween day at home than 4 on the ship. I think that's totally crazy, but Halloween is important to an 8yo and a 5yo I guess. Gotta have priorities! ;)

    I agree, we would never do a Halloween cruise again either, we had a great cruise but at that age my daughter is 7, trick or treating is more important;) and no trick or treat stations on the Fantasy. Our Halloween day was the 30th and we were in Costa Maya for the day. Our cruise was also affected by Sandy we lost a port, Grand Cayman, and gained a sea day.

    we are booked on the fantasy for this Halloween, and I am thinking I am liking the "not a lot of candy" idea!
