Perhaps you've heard of the naval ceremonies involved when a ship crosses the Equator.
Well, here's how our virile warriors used to celebrate the occasion. Not sure what happens in today's co-ed Navy.
Listed in chronological order. Newest comments at the end.
Like Billy said, I've never heard of it referred to as "Neptune's Party". I'm told it gets a bit intense in the US Navy. I missed just missed it when I got an early discharge from my ship just before she set sail for a trip around the horn.

I think it's sometimes called a Neptune's Party on Cruise Ships, since it's a less intense initiation ceremony.
@Steve, most props & costumes are made on site a couple days before, some props belong to old enlisted men.
