Fans of the Star Wars franchise won’t want to miss this – Disney Cruise Lines has just announced the return of its popular Star Wars Day at Sea event on 15 of its Disney Fantasy sailings in 2018. The Fantasy will be sailing to the Caribbean from January through April.

The event takes guests “to a galaxy far, far away” bringing iconic Star Wars characters like the Jedi, Wookiees, droids, Stormtroopers and more to spend the day at sea with Fantasy guests. Guests are invited to “Discover the Force, Learn the Ways of the Jedi, and Summon the Force” through a variety of interaction with the characters and a number of events on board that day.

Entertainment for the day includes photo opportunities and interactions with characters from the Star Wars galaxy; screenings of all the Star Wars films and television series, including the newest Rogue One: A Star Wars Story release; a special gathering for guests in costumes in the ship’s atrium lobby; specialty Star Wars themed beverages, snacks, dinner menu items, desserts and more.

Kids and families are welcome to test their knowledge during Star Wars trivia games, complete Star Wars themed arts and crafts, games and activities in the ship’s youth spaces as well as experience Jedi Training: Trials of the Temple, where “force-sensitive” children will learn the ways of the Jedi and use their new-found skills in a final face off with Darth Vader and the Seventh Sister.

The day will conclude with a “Summon the Force” deck celebration, where guests will enjoy a dance party and show featuring Star Wars characters, pyrotechnics, stunts, special effects and a fireworks display accompanied by John Williams’ music.

Star Wars Day at Sea will be on 15 Disney Fantasy seven-night Caribbean cruises sailing from Port Canaveral, Florida.
