Disney Cruise Line will once again set sail for a galaxy far, far away next year with the return of Star Wars Day at Sea.
This time around, the celebration will expand to not only include the seven-night Western Caribbean cruise aboard the Disney Fantasy, but also the seven-night Eastern Caribbean sailings. In all, there will be 15 Star Wars Day at Sea sailings in 2017.
Debuting earlier this year, each of the one-day celebrations, which targets “Younglings, Padawans and Jedi Masters alike,” features character appearances, deck parties, fireworks, Star Wars-themed activities, special foods and merchandise, and screenings of the films (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story will be shown on next year's voyages).
“Our guests keep telling us that Star Wars Day at Sea is an experience they’ll never forget, that it’s a thrill of intergalactic proportions,” Karl L. Holz, president of Disney Cruise Line, said in a statement. “In response to guest demand, we’re pleased to create even more Star Wars memories aboard the Disney Fantasy in 2017 with an expanded schedule of these special sailings. Clearly, the Force is alive and well on the high seas!”
