Choosing a Themed Disney Cruise
Throughout the year, the Disney Cruise Line offers a wide selection of itineraries and sailings for guests to choose from. However, those looking to pack in a little more fun may want to explore a themed Disney Cruise.
There are four unique cruise themes which are available for guests to book. These cruises include Halloween on the High Seas, Very Merrytime Cruises, Marvel Day at Sea, and Star Wars Day at Sea. How do you even begin to choose with a lineup like this? Let’s take a look at each themed cruise and what it offers.
Halloween on the High Seas
All four of Disney’s ships will offer Halloween themed cruises throughout the Fall. This applies to 4- to 7-night cruises sailing from NYC, San Diego and Port Canaveral.
In addition to the Halloween decor, the ship is packed with festive fun and surprises. Grab your costumes and join in the fun of a costume party! Families can participate in the party or adults can enter a costume contest. You won’t want to miss the “sing and scream” movie experience or spooky storytelling under the stars.
Of course, Mickey and friends will don their Halloween attire and there will be plenty of treats for those onboard.
Very Merrytime Cruises
If your favorite holiday features lights, carols and the smell of peppermint and pine, you may want to check out a Very Merrytime Cruise. Each ship is transformed into a “winter wonderland” allowing you to enjoy the Christmas spirit in a tropical paradise.
Onboard, carolers will serenade you throughout the ship, Disney pals will greet you in their finest holiday attire, and deck parties are bountiful. What a perfect gift to slip under the tree.
Very Merrytime Cruises are available on 3- to 7-night sailings from NYC, Galveston and Port Canaveral.
Marvel Day at Sea
If you’re a fan of the Marvel Universe’s heroes and villains, the Marvel Day at Sea cruise may be the perfect choice for you! Grab your Captain America shield and join in the fun. Encounter your favorite Marvel characters and take part in secret agent training sessions. You won’t want to miss the epic stunt show, which is guaranteed to leave you begging for more!
The Marvel Day at Sea theme is available in January on select 5-night cruises sailing from Miami to the Bahamas and the Western Caribbean.
Star Wars Day at Sea
If you’d prefer to venture to a “galaxy far, far away” check out a Star Wars Day at Sea cruise. Experience the adventure of the Star Wars saga brought to life onboard Disney cruise ships. Encounter your favorite characters and receive your Jedi training before enjoying a “deck party spectacular”.
Star Wars Day at Sea sailings take place on select 7-night Eastern and Western Caribbean cruises leaving from Port Canaveral. These sailings will begin in January 2019.
All of the incredible themes may make it difficult to chose just one cruise. Perhaps this is why so many people keep coming back!
*Pro Tip: Remember, as with most cruises, the earlier you book your stateroom the better the rates will be.
