Disney cruises always seem like the happiest place on the water. (See what we did there?) But since the typical Disney gang isn’t always what you’re looking for, Disney’s come up with the answer to all your wishes: A Star Wars Day at Sea cruise.
Why haven’t they thought of this before? Cruising the high seas with Luke, Darth Vader and Han Solo *swoon*? Count us in! Plus, it’s a Disney cruise, so it’s complete with all the
quirky amazing things you come to expect from anything with mouse ears.
This means an onboard Jedi Training Academy. Why yes, you can learn how to wield a lightsaber in your Padawan training session. Our only question is can we put that on our resume? Because we’re going to be bragging to everyone.
You can and watch all the Star Wars movies on board with like-minded people, including the newest Star Wars movie Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, which will be out in December. In other words, you can put your new lightsaber skills to the test as you reenact Anakin and Obi Wan fighting for good vs evil. (If only Hayden Christensen was on each cruise, with his beautiful brooding eyes.)
The cruise has a lot of kid friendly Star Wars themed games and activities–you’ll probably be jealous of all the cool things they get to do—but that just means you can spend more time at the deck party, dancing with your favourite Jedi.
Did we mention you’re encouraged to dress up? Never have you had a better excuse to plaster on your Queen Amidala makeup and channel your inner Natalie Portman.
Cruises run from January to April 2017, so you only have a small window to experience the best thing ever (we assume). Tickets for the cruise range from $3000-$18000 (for the fanciest package), but it will be worth it once you’re a jedi.
Celebrating “Star Wars Day at Sea” might be the coolest thing we’ve ever heard of.
