There has been a bit of uncertainty with regard to the Pirates IN the Caribbean deck party and fireworks following the announcement of Star Wars Day at Sea and A Day of Frozen Fun which will begin in just a few months. This week, Disney Cruise Line attempted to clarify the impact these recently announced onboard experience will have on regular deck parties and fireworks during this summer’s European, Alaskan and next year’s Star Wars Day at Sea sailings by sharing the following information with travel agents to pass along to their clients. First and foremost, the actual day of the new deck parties are still undetermined. DCL is suggesting that guest should check their Personal Navigator onboard for specific information specific to their itinerary.
2015 Disney Wonder Alaskan Sailings
Beginning June 1st, the Disney Wonder 2015 7-Night Alaskan sailings will have A Pixar Pals Party! instead of the Pirates IN the Caribbean deck party which has been the case for the last couple of years.

During the eight 7-Night Western Caribbean Cruises – Itinerary D sailings aboard the Dinsey Fantasy, guests will have the opportunity to enjoy the typical pirate night deck parties, Mickey’s Pirates IN the Caribbean Party, Buccaneer Blast & Club Pirate. However, fireworks will only be offered during the Star Wars deck party.
Finally, it was noted by Disney that all entertainment is subject to change.
Is there any impact or changes to the Magic’s May 15 transatlantic cruise? What night time deck parties, if any, are planned?
wonder what the plan is for the May 15 TransAtlantic cruise….
Do they offer the fireworks on transatlantic and Panama Canal cruises?
Yep, we had one on our westbound Panama Canal cruise.
I was told a couple of weeks ago by DCL that there would be a pirate night on day 7 (St John, Newfoundland) on the Magic’s upcoming May 15 transatlantic crossing to Europe, but I don’t know if that has changed based on this update.
Steve, These scheduling updates only relate to the itineraries mentioned.
The Pixar Pals Party is nice but it lacks the energy and fun of Pirates IN the Caribbean. You get the overall impression of an event that was hastily devised and put together. There isn’t a lot to it.
Hopefully Disney will come up with something new.
DCL needs to shut down Pirates Night and put on more shows! Fireworks is fireworks, nothing spectacular! DCL is losing their momentum!
Pirates Night not changing on the Dream? Anything new coming to the Dream this summer?
Do you know yet when Olaf will begin appearing on the Fantasy?
