Disney Cruise Lines has just announced Star Wars Day at Sea which will be a special one-day celebration held on eight different sailings of the Disney Fantasy in the Western Caribbean. The event will start in 2016 and be the first time the Star Wars characters have officially taken to the seas with Disney Cruise Lines. According to StarWars.com, the event will include:
- Darth Vader, Chewbacca, Boba Fett, stormtroopers, and other characters from across the Star Wars galaxy will be onboard for scheduled meet and greets, as well as roaming on deck and elsewhere around the ship. Guests also are encouraged to dress up in their own stellar costumes.
- A shipboard version of the popular Jedi Training Academy experience invites young Padawans to learn lightsaber moves from a Jedi Master. They can then use the Force and face off in a final test against the evil Darth Vader.
- Kids and families enjoy friendly competition during Star Wars trivia games, covering fun facts from the film and television sagas.
- For younglings, Star Wars-themed arts and crafts, games and activities will be offered throughout the day in Oceaneer Club and Oceaneer Lab youth clubs.
- In the evening, adults entering the night club will feel like they stepped into the Mos Eisley cantina scene. Characters and cantina music set the mood as Star Wars-themed specialty cocktails are served.
Guests will also be able to watch screenings of the movies and Star Wars: Rebels, experience an on-deck party, and meet celebrities and insiders from the world of Star Wars.
