Just as the first Star Wars Day at Sea Cruise is nearing its final leg of the voyage, Disney Cruise Line announced the return of this epic ay at sea for 15 select Caribbean sailings in 2018 aboard the Disney Fantasy.
Star Wars Day at Sea transports guests to a galaxy far, far away to celebrate the legendary adventures and iconic characters from the Star Wars saga with Jedi, Wookiees, droids, Stormtroopers and others during the special day-long celebration.
Star Wars Day at Sea summons the power of the Force, the magic of Disney and the excitement of cruising for an out-of-this-galaxy experience unlike any other.
“The Force is stronger than ever onboard the Disney Fantasy, and we are excited to bring back Star Wars Day at Sea in 2018,” said Karl Holz, president of Disney Cruise Line. “The popularity of the event over the past two years inspired us to continue immersing our guests in the Star Wars galaxy. Everyone, from the youngest Padawan to the most knowledgeable Jedi Master, is invited to enjoy this event of galactic proportions and make memories that will last a lifetime.”
The event features a full day of Star Wars celebrations including a deck party spectacular with an extraordinary fireworks display, encounters with the galaxy’s most formidable and heroic characters, Star Wars-themed family and youth activities, unique food and beverage offerings and special merchandise.

Staterooms are still available for the 2017 Star Wars Day at Sea voyages if you cannot wait to be one with the Force.
Are these expected to continue for the May 2018 sailings too?
Jessica, I would not expect that to happen. To date, the SWDAS cruises have been offered during the beginning of the year between January and April.
What does the asterisk indicate on the 3/24/18 date? (Just above the map)
Onboard Booking Blockout date.
From what I have read of reviews the SWD at sea has been quite a disappointment. We are going Feb 2017 and I hope they have made improvements!
