Eurodam’s Operation Trick-or-Treat

Eurodam’s Operation Trick-or-Treat

On October 27th in San Juan, 90 underprivileged children from Ines M. Mendoza Elementary School embarked the Eurodam for a fantastic day of trick-or-treating and fun! At lunchtime, the bus filled with children dressed up for Halloween pulled up to Pier 4, and out came firemen, chefs, nurses, police officers, army men, sports players and doctors. Our crew members were waiting for them just outside the terminal, and quite the eclectic group we were, dressed up in our Halloween costumes as well.

When the children embarked the ship, they were taken straight up to the lido for burgers, pizza, hot dogs and sodas. Once they were sufficiently full, each child wrote their name on a Halloween Bag and they were split up into groups of 10. Our crew members took each group to different stations around the ship which were giving out candy, such as the front office, club HAL, and the salon. There were nine designated trick-or-treat stations and the kids became more excited with each one they visited.

Once the Trick-or-Treating rounds were over, we all met in the Northern Lights night club for some dancing. The day ended with everybody up on the bow to hand out the last batch of candy, take some great pictures and eat ice cream sandwiches.
It was a fun and exciting day for both the crew and the children.

    It was a real pleasure to aboard the MS Eurodam when this special event was run by the special events department. Most of us would be away for our own happening of Halloween as it was a travel day home after debarkation from the ship. The children looked like they had a blast. The adults also looked they they enjoyed themselves. The staff and crew outdid themselves and showed much love and compasion to the needy. My wife and I just hung around the lido extra to take in the moment.
