In a refreshing change from the All Frozen, All the Time promotions throughout the Disney properties, Disney Cruise Line announced Star Wars Day at Sea for early 2016 sailings on the Fantasy. The dates are:

  • January 9
  • January 23
  • February 6
  • February 20
  • March 5
  • March 19
  • April 2
  • April 16

These are all 7-night Western Caribbean itineraries. According to Disney, these sailings will include the only at-sea showings of the latest Star Wars film, Episode VII, The Force Awakens. The day at sea will feature a deck party, Star Wars meet and greets, themed food and bev, and, of course, limited edition special merchandise.

What do you think? Reason to book a cruise? Welcome addition to a cruise you’ve already booked? Just happy it’s not princess-themed? Talk about it in the comments.

    Are you suggesting that Episode VII, The Force Awakens won’t have it’s PremEAR at sea in December? That would be a disappointment, because I’ll be on the Fantasy when the movie is released and looking forward to a midnight showing hours before arriving at Castaway Cay.

      Yes, according to both the Disney Parks Blog and the DCL site, those are the only screenings. It does seem odd, doesn’t it?

    April 30th isn’t showing up as a date on the DCL website. That would probably be the date we pick if its offered.
    My husband would love this cruise. He has been dying to go on another and by this cruise our little one will be old enough to go on a Disney Cruise.

      Yes, it showed on the Parks blog article, but not on the Travel Agent update. I’m taking it off the article.
