What is Star Wars Day at Sea?
Star Wars Day at Sea debuted on Disney Cruise line in 2016. It is a day on the Disney Fantasy 7 day sailings when there will be special Star Wars character experiences, events and even themed food.
The Star Wars characters do not regularly appear on the Disney Ships – the Star Wars Days at Sea are the only chance you will get to see Darth Vader or a Stormtrooper at sea!
If you have never experienced a Star Wars Day at Sea and get the chance to be on one of these sailings I would highly recommend it. I am not a huge Star Wars fan but there is a lot to enjoy for everyone.
The day actually begins the evening before when it is announced that Darth Vader has taken control of the ship.
As you can imagine the sky is the limit with regard to how much you get into the spirit of the Star Wars theme.
It is a great opportunity to indulge in some fabulous Star Wars costumes and cosplay. Whether you have always wanted to explore your Dark Side, or see how it feels to be Princess Leia for the day, now is your chance.
Some people really do go all out and it is great just being on the ship to see what others are wearing!
Which Characters Will I See for Star Wars Day at Sea
Usually there are scheduled character greetings with:
- Darth Vader
There are other characters who may make an appearance around the Disney Fantasy including:
- Boba Fett
- Kylo Ren
- A Resistance Pilot
- Ahsoka Tano
I wonder if for 2022 there will be any characters from The Mandalorian? Wouldn’t it be amazing to meet Baby Yoda?
Star Wars at Sea Fireworks
One of the best parts of the Star Wars Day at Sea is the fireworks in the evening. Just like the Pirates in the Caribbean fireworks show, this takes place on the pool deck. The fireworks are set to the amazing music of John Williams.
Do The Star Wars Day at Sea Activities Cost Extra?
All of the extra activities for Star Wars Day at Sea are included in your usual cruise fare. Here you can see what is included and what is extra on your Disney Cruise.
There will certainly be opportunities to part with some money though on all the merchandise and even the Star Wars themed beverages.
