For the very first time, Star Wars characters will entertain guests on board Disney Fantasy in 2016


Fans of Star Wars can rejoice as Disney Cruise Line has announced that the heroes and villains of the cult classic will make their first official appearance on board a Disney Cruise Line ship in 2016.

Guests will be able to enjoy the legendary adventures and iconic characters from the Star Wars saga during a brand-new, day-long celebration on eight special sailings with the Disney Fantasy Star Wars Day at Sea.

Occurring on one day during each of eight Disney Fantasy sailings, Star Wars Day at Sea will seek to combine the magic of Disney and Star Wars with the excitement of cruising, taking guests on a thrilling journey in the Western Caribbean. The event features a full day of Star Wars celebrations, including a deck party with fireworks, meet-and-greets with favourite characters, including Darth Vader, Chewbacca and Obi-Wan Kenobi. Highlights include Star Wars-themed youth activities, and exclusive at-sea screenings of the Star Wars films and new Disney XD animated series, Star Wars Rebels.

A version of the popular Jedi Training Academy will also invite young Jedi hopefuls (aka ‘Padawans’) to learn lightsaber moves before facing a test against Darth Vader.

For adults, music and Star Wars-themed speciality cocktails will cater for an older crowd while also staying true to the special theme.


Star Wars Day at Sea will be on Disney Fantasy cruises sailing on 9th and 23rd January 2016; 6th and 20th February 2016; 5th and 19th March 2016; 2nd and 16th April 2016. Departing from Port Canaveral, the seven-night Western Caribbean itinerary includes Cozumel, Mexico; Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands and Disney’s private island in the Bahamas, Castaway Cay. To learn more about Disney Cruise Line or to book a holiday, guests can visit the Disney Cruise website or call Disney Cruise Line on 0800 171 2317.
