Photo blog: Halloween on the High Seas

I wanted to be a princess riding a unicorn for Halloween but apparently there isn't one of those in Batman (The Cruise Staff theme) so I had to go as a sexy cat instead. 

Somewhere in a parallel universe: Gay Batman and Cat-lady Woman:

Our Cruise Director always has a smile on his face:

 Some highlights from the guest party:

Only two of these DJ’s are employed on this ship, can you guess which one isn’t?

And then the crew party:

This is why you always wear your PPE:

Everything is awesome. Everything is cool when you're part of a team.

The two coolest superheroes ever:

That awkward moment when someone has the same costume as you.

If you're going to come dressed as a bigger shower than the ones we have in our cabins, people are going to take advantage.

The only roach I've seen on the Getaway.

And now we know who's been steeling cutlery from the mess.


About the Sharonicles

The Sharonicles is a travel humour blog by a location-independent South African travel writer. After five years as a cruise ship crew member, Sharon is now trying to adjust to life on land with itchy feet. (That is an expression but cruise ships will literally give you Athletes Foot, just FYI.) Born and raised in Johannesburg, she is now exploring her new home city of Cape Town (and hopefully a number of more land-locked locations throughout the rest of the world too).

Here she shares advice, opinions and anecdotes revealing the funny side of travel from her experiences on five continents and a number of seas.

She also photographs a plastic flamingo called 'Rodrigo' on her travels because it seemed like a good idea ten years ago and 54 countries later, it’s probably too late to turn back now.

To find out more about Sharon and Rodrigo’s travel aspirations read this.
