Carnival Cruise Line is serving up a South Pacific spooktacular in 2017 with both of its local ships offering a Halloween cruise to New Caledonia, according to a company statement. 

The Carnival Spirit will spend Halloween at Mare in the Loyalty Islands, while the Carnival Legend will call at Isle Of Pines on October 31.

Both cruises will feature a costume party, themed movies, trick or treating and updated menus, including witches brewing at the bar, spider snacks and scary cheesecake for a death defying dessert.

Carnival Cruise Line Vice President Australia Jennifer Vandekreeke said the cruise line was proud to help Australians embrace the fun side of the popular US tradition.
