Encounters with Darth Vader and characters are part of Disney’s Star Wars Day at Sea

Star Wars Day at Sea returns to Disney in 2021

The popular Star Wars Day at Sea will be offered on nine Disney Cruise Line sailings in 2021.

Disney Fantasy

This daylong celebration is filled with character encounters, live shows and Star Wars-themed activities for the entire family. Star Wars Day at Sea takes place on seven-night Disney Fantasy cruises to the Caribbean from January through March.

With more than a dozen of the galaxy’s most formidable and heroic characters on board, passengers can meet with Resistance figures including Chewbacca, C-3PO and R2-D2, come face-to-face with Darth Vader and be on watch as Stormtroopers, Bounty Hunters and Jawas roam the ship.

Kids can learn the ways of the Jedi and use their new-found skills in a face-off against Darth Vader and Kylo Ren in ‘Jedi Training: Trials of the Temple.’ A ‘Summon the Force’ deck party, complete with fireworks, is open to the whole family.

Costume celebrations, movie screenings, trivia sessions, the Star Wars Drawing Academy and a ship-wide Porg-themed adventure are further activities. Special foods, beverages and merchandise will be available.
