Halloween: Norwegian Cruise Line’s Most Ghoulish Sailings
Visit Salem, Massachusetts on a 7 day Canada & New England cruise on Norwegian Gem, calling at Boston, Massachusetts, sailing October 2024
Fall under the spell of the ‘Witch City’ of Salem, Massachusetts famously known for its 1692 witch trials, during which several locals were executed for allegedly practicing witchcraft – the devil’s magic. Salem is home to a world of enchantment, history, and culture found nowhere else on Earth, making it the perfect location to visit during the spooky season!
Take part in the festivities on a 7-day Mexican Riviera cruise onboard Norwegian Bliss, calling at Puerto Vallarta, sailing November 2023.
Head to Puerto Vallarta around Halloween, to stop off and enjoy the Day of the Dead Festivities. From October through to November, there will be plenty of cultural and artistic activities going on in Puerto Vallarta as it celebrates the festival – plenty of locals and tourists will be dressed in frightening costumes, which makes for fascinating people-watching!
Visit the Greyfriars Kirkyard on an 11 day British Isles cruise on Norwegian Star, calling at Edinburgh, Scotland, sailing October 2024.
For those who are fans of both scary season and Harry Potter, this one’s for you! The Greyfriars Kirkyard is described as Scotland’s most haunted cemetery as the ancient resting place contains the Covenanters’ Prison and the tombstone of Thomas Riddell Esquire, the real inspiration behind the famous Harry Potter villain, Voldemort.
Gary Anslow, Head of UK & I Business at Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL),
“We have recently seen a rise in “spooky tourism”, as Brits set off on a hunt to discover the eerie stories behind many historical destinations. Halloween enthusiasts can experience ghoulish experiences on a variety of itineraries including Mediterranean and Europe sailings, and if they get too frightened in these haunted spots, they can escape back to the NCL ship for safety.”
Welcome to the land of … Hope&Glory
