Disney Cruise Line to bring back Star Wars Day at Sea sailings in 2017

Disney Cruise Line has announced that they are bringing back their Star Wars Day at Sea cruises on the Disney Fantasy in early 2017. There were eight of these cruises offered in spring of 2016 and appeared to be a popular offering, as the number for 2017 will almost double to 15 sailings. Another change is that the itineraries will include both Western and Eastern Caribbean sailings; in 2016, only Western Caribbean was available.

Star Wars Day at Sea Returns in 2017

The sailings feature one day of everything Star Wars – character meet and greets, deck parties, movie screenings, specialty food, beverages, and merchandise, fireworks, and more.

Karl L. Holz, president of Disney Cruise Line, said, “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. 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!”

Leah grew up in a little farming town in Illinois, right on the Mississippi River. Her Chicago-born husband, David, left the city for her, and they're now raising their three children (Jacob, Jonah and Lydia) just 12 miles from her hometown. As the Senior Editor of the DIS (wdwinfo.com), Leah spends a lot of time writing about, reading about, and discussing Disney. So, it should come as no surprise that one of her family's favorite ways to spend time is going to Walt Disney World and traveling on Disney Cruise Line. She also enjoys shopping, watching movies with her husband and doing crafts with and for her kids.
