    what are the chances Disney announces star wars day at sea will return for 2019? Because i really want to do this but can not make it for 2018, really hoping they will continue this great day at sea.

      With the continued release of films going forward, I would not be surprised if Star Wars Day at Sea continues. However, with all things Disney we never know for sure until they make it official.
