No one does Halloween like the spindly Jack Skellington. The "Nightmare Before Christmas" star and other Disney characters will dress up with passengers on new Halloween-themed cruises this fall that sail from Florida to the Bahamas.

Disney announced Wednesday the new Halloween on the High Seas cruises aboard selected Disney Dream sailings from Sept. 22 to Oct. 31.

During the cruise, Skellington and the love-struck Sally will be on deck after an interactive showing of the movie.

Other onboard highlights include Mickey's Calling All the Monsters Mouse-Querade Deck Party, where kids and parents can dress up and celebrate alongside Disney characters and scary story telling, a Creepy Cabaret with ghostly musicians, and pumpkin-carving and mask-making activities.

The Halloween celebrations take part on three- and four-night cruises that leave Florida from Port Canaveral, Fla., or Miami and stop in Castaway Cay, Disney's private port of call, and, depending on the itinerary, Nassau, Bahamas.

Prices for the three-night cruises start at $1,100 per person, based on double occupancy, according to the cruise line's website.

Disney also announced its schedule for Very MerryTime Cruises, which celebrate Christmas and New Year's Eve aboard the company's Magic, Wonder, Dream and Fantasy ships. Sailings begin Nov. 9 for Caribbean cruises lasting four to seven nights and continue until Dec. 31.
