How to Travel to a Galaxy Far, Far Away on the Disney Cruise Line

Did you know you can travel to a galaxy far, far away on the Disney Cruise Line? Learn about all of the Star Wars offerings coming to or available on the Disney Cruise Line below!


Here are all the details from Danny Handke, Senior Creative Director, Walt Disney Imagineering:

Those of you who’ve met me know I am a huge Star Wars fan (you can read more about that in the recent interview I did for StarWars.com!) So as a Walt Disney Imagineer, getting to work on projects that bring Star Wars to life on board our cruise ships and in our theme parks and resorts is a dream come true for me.

And now, I can finally talk about the project I’m currently working on – Star Wars: Hyperspace Lounge – coming to our newest ship setting sail summer 2022. We gave you a first look at this incredible space in our grand reveal of the Disney Wish last week, and today I want to share more details about this first-of-its kind Star Wars-themed space for adults on a Disney ship.

That’s right parents … It’s not just your kids who get to have all of the fun! Every evening, this high-end bar styled as a luxurious yacht-class spaceship is reserved exclusively for adults. For the first time on one of our ships, you can embark on a space-jumping tour of the Star Wars galaxy with interactive tasting experiences and signature beverages inspired by the films.

The venue’s sleek interior design and metallic detailing is inspired by lavish star cruisers similar to Dryden Vos’ ship in “Solo: A Star Wars Story.” While you sip your galactic concoctions, this space-faring voyage will transport you to iconic locations from the eras of the Republic, Empire and First Order, employing hyperspace jumps to travel from planet to planet while sensational scenes unfold just beyond the ship’s panoramic viewport at each stop.

Ranging from serene vistas to action-packed encounters, the spectacles seen through this virtual “window” into the galaxy will feature famous space ships from the films and fan-favorite locales like Batuu, Tatooine, Mustafar and Coruscant. The experience will be amplified by surround-sound audio and a holotube that presents holographic models of nearby ships.

While we’re talking Star Wars, did you know that Disney Cruise Line will once again offer Star Wars Day at Sea in early 2022? Yep, the force will be with you during select seven-night Caribbean cruises aboard the Disney Fantasy. Here are some of my favorite things about this intergalactic experience:

      • The entire day is filled with Star Wars excitement—costume celebrations, movie screenings, family trivia, a ship-wide scavenger hunt and youth club fun with BB-8!
      • You can meet over a dozen Star Wars characters, like Chewbacca, R2-D2, C-3PO and Darth Vader and more. You may even have a surprise run-in with roaming characters such as Boba Fett, Jawas and First Order Stormtroopers.
      • There’s an incredible deck show starring Rey and other popular characters that concludes with a fireworks spectacle set to John Williams’ Star Wars score. What a way to end an unforgettable day!

Last up, I want to share with you two of my four-year-old daughter’s favorite places to visit when we’re on a Disney cruise, which means so much to me because I had a hand in designing these spaces. Aboard two of our ships, kids can have their own Star Wars experience inside Disney’s Oceaneer Club.

On the Disney Dream, kids can design a starship, train like a Jedi or climb into Han Solo’s cockpit in Star Wars: Millennium Falcon. And on the Disney Fantasy, they can train with Jedi or X-Wing pilots, connect to legendary spacecrafts via an interactive “holotable” and combat First Order Stormtroopers face-to-face at Star Wars: Command Post.

After friends and family made them their go-to-people for Walt Disney World advice, Cindy and Chad launched DisneyLists.com in August 2015 to share their knowledge and love of Disney. Chad and Cindy have been Disney World Annual Passholders for years, DVC members, together have raced more than 70 runDisney races, and particularly love cruising on the Disney Cruise Line.
