CELEBRATION, FL — Disney Cruise Line has added its extremely popular ‘Star Wars Day at Sea’ to 15 special Disney Fantasy sailings to the Caribbean from January through April 2018.
The special day-long celebration “transports guests to a galaxy far, far away to celebrate the legendary adventures and iconic characters from the Star Wars saga with Jedi, Wookiees, droids, Stormtroopers and more”, says the cruise line.
“The Force is stronger than ever onboard the Disney Fantasy, and we are excited to bring back Star Wars Day at Sea in 2018,” said Karl Holz, President, Disney Cruise Line. “The popularity of the event over the past two years inspired us to continue immersing our guests in the Star Wars galaxy. Everyone, from the youngest Padawan to the most knowledgeable Jedi Master, is invited to enjoy this event of galactic proportions and make memories that will last a lifetime.”
The event features a full day of Star Wars celebrations including a deck party spectacular with fireworks, encounters with the galaxy’s most formidable and heroic characters, Star Wars-themed family and youth activities, unique food and beverage offerings and special merchandise.
Characters from across the Star Wars galaxy are onboard for interactions and photos, and guests are encouraged to bring costumes for a special gathering in the atrium lobby.
Guests can also indulge in the Star Wars films and television series, including all the films in the Star Wars saga, Star Wars Rebels and the latest installment in the new standalone series ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’. There are also specialty Star Wars-themed beverages, snacks, dinner menu items and desserts.
In ‘Jedi Training: Trials of the Temple’, young passengers learn the ways of the Jedi and use their newfound skills in a final face-off with Darth Vader and the Seventh Sister. Star Wars-themed arts and crafts, games and activities are offered throughout the day in all youth spaces. Kids and families also get to test their knowledge during Star Wars trivia games.
‘Star Wars Day at Sea’ wraps up with the ‘Summon the Force’ deck celebration where guests unleash the Force during games, music and a galactic dance party.
