Star Wars Day at Sea Coming to Disney Cruise Line

We still don't know how Star Wars will finally manifest in the theme parks but out at sea is a different story. Disney Cruise Line has announced Star Wars Day at Sea. One night on eight sailings on the Disney Fantasy, Sith and Jedi alike can take part in onboard festivities featuring characters from the films. See below for the full list of activities from StarWars.com.

Force-filled Fun for Everyone

  • Darth Vader, Chewbacca, Boba Fett, stormtroopers, and other characters from across the Star Wars galaxy will be onboard for scheduled meet and greets, as well as roaming on deck and elsewhere around the ship. Guests also are encouraged to dress up in their own stellar costumes.

  • A shipboard version of the popular Jedi Training Academy experience invites young Padawans to learn lightsaber moves from a Jedi Master. They can then use the Force and face off in a final test against the evil Darth Vader.

  • Kids and families enjoy friendly competition during Star Wars trivia games, covering fun facts from the film and television sagas.

  • For younglings, Star Wars-themed arts and crafts, games and activities will be offered throughout the day in Oceaneer Club and Oceaneer Lab youth clubs.

  • In the evening, adults entering the night club will feel like they stepped into the Mos Eisley cantina scene. Characters and cantina music set the mood as Star Wars-themed specialty cocktails are served.

Film Screenings and Celebrities

  • Guests can watch the first six Star Wars films.

  • Also showing will be episodes of the hit animated series Star Wars Rebels.

  • On each of the special sailings, celebrities and insiders from the Star Wars galaxy will share their experiences, meet fans, and sign autographs.

Star Wars Deck Party and Fireworks

  • There’s intergalactic fun when the Star Wars deck party blasts off to an exciting evening filled with music, dancing, and games.

  • Star Wars characters converge on the deck stage for a celebration of the Star Wars saga in a show featuring special effects and guest participation.

  • The deck party culminates in a spectacular display of themed pyrotechnics, lighting, sound effects, lasers, and Star Wars.

The whole package sounds like nothing short of great. It is curious why only the first six films are being shown and not the Force Awakens but there is still time for more additions and surprises. All sailings are on the Disney Fantasy leaving Port Canaveral on January 9, 23; February 6, 20; March 5, 19; April 2 and 16, 2016. Will you be booking?
