    We just found out that the cruise we have had booked for a while has become a Star Wars Cruise. Will this diminish the Pirate activities on board? And on Star Wars Day will there be ways to avoid it? My son is terrified of it. Thank you!

    Hi there, Jamie!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  I know you are looking forward to your cruise aboard the Disney Fantasy!  It will undoubtedly be a vacation you won’t forget!  

    You can look forward to a swashbucklin’ good time at Pirate Night on your sailing.  Your sailing will include both the Pirate Night and the Star Wars Day at Sea, so have no fear!  Your young buccaneer can still enjoy his day as a pirate!  Have you made a reservation for any young cruisers at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique?  My young boys LOVE getting transformed into Captain Blackbeard or Captain Hook on Pirate Night and pretending the ship is their pirate ship!  

    Star Wars Day at Sea is exactly that – one day that is dedicated to Star Wars.  Many of the activities onboard will be heavily Star Wars themed, but you can certainly avoid it by spending time in the Youth Clubs or on the pool deck.  There will be Character Greetings onboard, but those are scheduled and in certain locations on board so you can easily avoid those areas as needed.  Dinner in the main dining rooms will have some theming added to it, but there are alternatives for dining such as Cabanas seated dinner, snack stand or room service!  While it is a fun and unique day, things can be avoided as you see necessary.  I recommend downloading the Navigator app so you will have the list of activities at your fingertips throughout that day – and all the other days of your adventure!  

    Wishing you a wonderful, magical and FANTASTic cruise at sea! 

    Happy Sailing!
