Sharing is caring!


Disney Star Wars Cruise

Are you thinking of a booking a Disney Star Wars Cruise? The Star Wars Universe is well and truly a part of the Disney family. Now you can enjoy a Disney Star Wars Cruise.

What does this involve? When are the dates that the Star Wars cruises are offered? Here is everything that you need to know about the Disney Star Wars Cruise.

What is Disney Star Wars Day at Sea?

Star Wars Day at Sea

On select sailings on the Disney Fantasy in 2017 and 2018 there will be a celebration of all things Star Wars. The Disney Star Wars Day at Sea on the Fantasy is a must for fans. The Star Wars Day at Sea has special events, character appearances and greetings, and a special deck spectacular.

If you enjoy Star Wars you are going to be so impressed by the whole thing. It is Disney at it’s best  – combined with Star Wars. No fan could ask for more.

There is a lot for hardcore fans, but really it is so much more than that. It is a great chance to get the whole family involved in this fabulous Star Wars Day at Sea theme day.

Even if you only have a passing knowledge of the Star Wars movies, you are going to enjoy this.

Star Wars Day At Sea Happenings and Events

The Star Wars Day will always be a day at sea. This is usually Thursday, so the day before you arrive at Castaway Cay on your 7-night cruise.

There are so many events to choose from:

Star Wars Character Greetings. Guests have the chance to meet characters from the Star Wars movies on these special Disney Cruises. Characters include R2-D2 and C-3PO, Darth Vader, Ahsoka Tano, Kylo Ren, Captain Phasma, Sabine Wren and Ezra Bridger

Trials of the Temple is for children aged 4 to 12 in this interactive event – which is a lot like Jedi Training in the Disney Parks. There are lots of Star Wars-themed events in the Oceaneer’s Club and the Oceaneer’s Lab.

There are Star Wars Activities and Crafts for all ages. These are a lot of fun to join in with for the whole family. Why not learn how to draw Yoda? Or find out just how much you know about The Force by joining in with one of the Star Wars Trivia events?

The Star Wars Days at Sea are an amazing opportunity to showcase your own Star Wars Costumes. Lots of the guests enter into the spirit of things and it isn’t just kids who are playing dress-up here. Plenty of the adults are showing their Star Wars side in some fabulous costumes.

Every Star Wars Day at Sea also has a Guest Speaker who is associated with the Star Wars Universe. These talks are fascinating and not to be missed. Make sure that you get to the presentations early as they are very popular. If you do miss the event they are recorded and made available on your stateroom television.

There is an incredibly creative Star Wars Dinner Menu which is served in all of the rotational dining restaurants. You will see the familiar names of some of the planets featured in Star Wars. Appetizers are from Naboo and Tatooine, Entrees are inspired by Coruscant and the Death Star.

The final course offers desserts from Cloud City and Alderaan. Who can resist the Padme Amidala Souffle? Or the Stormtrooper Flatbread? The servers really get into the spirit of things and the costumes are amazing.


The day ends with a Star Wars Themed Deck Party. This Summon The Force event is a definite must-see for everyone, even those who are not Star Wars fans. The amazing Star Wars music sets the scene for this spectacular party which ends with an amazing fireworks display.

For those of you concerned that the Pirates may be losing out, you do not have to be worried. There is still Pirate Night and all the pirate themed celebrations on another day at sea on the Disney Fantasy.

What this means is that if you are lucky enough to be on a Disney Star Wars Cruise you will get to have two-party nights with fireworks at sea.

What if you know nothing about Star Wars? It is difficult to not be caught up in the whole thing and resolve to learn more about what the big thing is about Star Wars!

If you really don’t want to get involved you can avoid it, but why not enter the celebration? There are Star Wars movies shown all day and there is a special Star Wars 101 so that the uninitiated can learn about the Galaxy Far Far Away.
