The BEST of Disney Cruise Line’s Star Wars Day at Sea
The Force is strong with this cruise! We got a fun sneak peek of the Disney Cruise Line’s Star Wars Day at Sea media preview. From lightsaber battles to delicious galactic eats, I’ve put together the BEST of your Star Wars Day at Sea offerings for your family. Grab my family travel tips, check out the video (and see why my little girl gave me ALL of the tears), and get ready to geek out on all of the exclusive Star Wars fun you can have aboard a Disney Cruise ship!
Fun Star Wars Day at Sea Meet and Greets
Say “Wookie!” Get your exclusive Star Wars character photos when you reserve your Star Wars Day at Sea Meet and Greets with characters like:
- C-3PO & R2-D2
- Darth Vader
Not able to grab a meet and greet reservation? Be on the lookout for First Order Stormtroopers roaming the decks, Jawas looking for a trade, Boba Fett and other Star Wars Rebels characters looking to mingle with Disney Cruise guests throughout the day! Also look for exclusive Star Wars Day at Sea Photo Opps throughout the ship. The Han Solo in Carbonite is one of my faves!
Amazing Star Wars Day at Sea Entertainment
Tears, y’all. I had tears in my eyes as I watched my teeny little Jedi on the Disney Fantasy stage. Lights, smoke and a scary Darth Vader didn’t distract this little girl from battling the Dark Side during some of the most amazing entertainment. The Jedi Training Trials of the Temple show is completely worth the picture-perfect moment of your child! Check out why I had all of the tears in this video above. See what other exclusive Star Wars Day at Sea entertainment is in store for your family!

- Appetizers include: Marinated Opee Sea Killer (marinated shrimp on Iceberg lettuce with Gooberfish Caviar, Cucumber, Lemon and Cocktail Sauce), Sand People Salad (with marinated chicken, tomatoes, Tuskan marinated cracked wheat, Romaine lettuce, and red onions with a red wine vinegar dressing), and Mos Espa Grand Arena Tailgate Sandwich (my personal appetizer favorite – soft mini Brioche filled with cured Country Ham and an Orange Cranberry Marmalade)
- Entrees include: Grilled Alderaan Fish Filet (swordfish with seared Pineapple and Black Pepper Salsa, Roasted Chili Sweet Potatoes and preserved lemon), Grand Moff Tarkin’s Spiced Pork Tenderloin (with Chorizo Hash, Buttered Kale and Ancho-Chipotle Salsa), Kit Fisto’s Crisp Chicken (with crushed potatoes, butter green beans, biscuit and smoked bacon sauce – so good!), and Obi-Wan Shroom Steak (a highly praised vegetarian dish – Portobello mushroom Katsu on sticky rice with curry and green onions)

Not even your Wampa monster will go hungry. Not when the dessert is this epic.
