The Scariest Places to Visit this Halloween

By HarryTuesday 31st October 2017

Have you ever walked into a room, or down a dark path late at night and had that strange, creeping feeling running down your spine? You can’t really explain it. It’s almost like the air is full of static energy, making you hair stand on end… something (or could it be someone?) is getting closer….
Suddenly you turn around, and there’s no one there. But you can’t shake off the feeling that you felt like you weren’t quite alone. It’s that feeling you’ll experience when you visit some of the most haunted destinations we sail to.
Do you think you have the same nerves of steel and rational state of mind as a paranormal investigator? Or are you someone who always needs a cushion to hide behind anytime a scary movie comes on? Join us on our voyages to some of the scariest places in the world… but only if you dare…

Paris Catacombs

What do you imagine when you think of Paris? Probably luxury shopping districts, Michelin starred restaurants, grand cathedrals and romance. But did you know, beneath the glitter and Champagne in this city of Europe, there are over six million skeletons?
Paris is built on top of the catacombs, a labyrinth of 150 miles, filled from floor to ceiling with skeletons. 2km of them are open to the public, where you can walk past walls of skulls, their blank eye sockets staring back at you. Surely though, you won’t see anything really looking back…will you?
The catacombs are one of Paris’s most popular attractions, so expect long queues if you want a glimpse. It’s only €5 to enter, but because of safety reasons, your bag needs to be smaller than 40cmx30cm. No suitcases or backpacks can be taken in there.

Stephen King’s House, Maine

Where have some of the world’s most terrifying stories come from? Who’s the reason that generations of adults and children are now more alert when walking past a cemetery, or glance out of their bedroom window into the darkness, looking for a figure they hope they won’t see?
Of course, it’s Stephen King. The mastermind behind The Shining, It, and Pet Sematary. Many of King’s novels are set in the fictional town of Derry in Maine, where his characters are victim to a whole host of terrifying encounters.
Derry is based on King’s hometown of Bangor, where he still lives. His house has become something of a tourist trap, with countless fans coming to see where one of the world’s most celebrated horror writers lives. In true Stephen King style, the wrought iron gates that lead to his turreted house feature bats, and frightening three-headed creatures.
The town itself is full of other attractions, such as the Mount Hope Cemetery, the second largest garden-cemetery in the USA, and the Main Forest and Logging Museum. Just be sure to avoid standing near any drains in case a certain clown tries to entice you down there.

The trolls of Scandinavia

In Scandinavia, the images of the beautiful snow-capped homes, giant mountains and forests decorated with icicles act as the backdrop to a terrifying legend. Trolls.
Visit Norway to find the different trolls that inhabit the cold land. The trolls known as Jötnar, are gigantic monsters who lurk in the caves and mountains. The Jötnar only come out at night, as the glare of the sun will turn them into stone. They feast on humans, and spend their waking hours hunting their favourite food.
In a striking juxtaposition to the Jötnar, Huldrefolk are human-like, beautiful creatures. They have tails which give away their true identity, but hide these in order to trick humans. Female Huldras trap men with their hypnotic singing and beauty, keeping them as pets or mates until the men manage to escape, with no recollection of their ordeal.
If you’re brave enough, you can travel to the top of Mt. Fløyen, and go troll hunting yourself. There are statues and carvings of trolls all over the area, ready for you to pounce on.

Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Orlando Resort

Even the sunniest destinations have their dark places… And Orlando, Florida, is no different. If you dare, visit the Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Orlando™. The darkest, scariest and most haunting creatures from Saw, The Shining and American Horror Story will be waiting for you…
Remember though, no matter how brave your kids may be, only 13-years and above can enter this feast of frights.
We have teamed up with Universal Orlando Resort to create package holidays for you to enjoy before you sail off to the Caribbean. If you’re visiting Universal between September and November, remember to book your Halloween Horror Nights tickets in advance – they sell out really quick! Is that rush of adrenaline just what you need to get ready for your cruise?
Not quaking in your boots just yet? Come with us to visit these scary locations. Or check out all our other destinations if this is too scary for you.
