As you can see, most of the 2017 sailings will get an extra dose of magic with the addition of Halloween on the High Seas or Very MerryTime festivities.
I’m not surprised. It is a fun idea and a way to enhance ports that aren’t canaveral. However I thought they would see how one of the NYC cruises went first. But maybe the sales increased and they already know.
