At The Cruising Dead, activities ain't just activities, they're HAPPENINGS!

Throw on your best and bloodiest apocalyptized finery for the Indy's formal night, when we intro the ship's other passengers to their new & most interesting shipmates.

Don't forget to pack your PJ's for an evening of pure fun with your closest undead friends! Please keep it on the "less than racy side", lest the ship ask you to return to your cabin to change! Cover the bits your Granny wouldn't want to see!

Show our first-time apocalyptic Cruisers some love! Introduce yourself so you can is hi later. After the cruise, upload selfies to our Facebook group and Instagram page. Be sure to tag your new friends. Poster who uploads A LOT of cool pics with #selfiewithanewbies, wins a prize.  

Grab a cocktail (or 2) & join us as we pay homage to those who have cruised before us. We'll raise a glass to each of those who have lost their lives on the Independence of the Seas, while hearing sad and sometimes creepy tales of how they lost their lives on our very ship.

Still want more after Night of the Living Cruisers? If there were Camp Counselors in the apocalypse, this twist session is what they'd be teaching! Make yourself a simple banner to hang in your cabin! We'll provide paints, brushes, "dirt" and "blood". Boozy or sober, you may even learn a technique or two!

A fun activity that passengers take part in on just about all cruise lines is "Cruising Ducks". Pick up some rubber duckies and decorate them if you'd like. Attach your name/instructions for passengers who find your hidden treasures.
