    I hear that the First Order takes over the ship on SWDAS sailings. Will that be listed on the navigator as an event to attend? What time does it typically occur? I want to make sure I am there for it. :)

    Ahoy, Laryssa!

    I've thoroughly enjoyed all the great questions you have sent in about your voyage on the Disney Fantasy that includes the epic Star Wars Day at Sea! And now I have one for you. Do you have your costume yet? I was blown away by the creativity of Guests on my sailing this past April, so I hope you're planning something legendary! There are so many unique photo opportunities offered on the Star Wars Day at Sea that an amazing costume will make your pictures even more authentic (and great keepsakes!).

    Laryssa, I looked back at my photos and videos to provide you with my personal experience from this past April and hope this information will be the same for the 2018 sailings. The night before (Wednesday) our Star Wars Day at Sea, the First Order did take over the ship to transport us to a "galaxy, far, far away" while remaining the course to Castaway Cay! I looked back at my cruise newsletter and did not see it listed, but remember it being around 10:00 p.m. in the Grand Lobby Atrium. (Feel free to ask around on Wednesday for information on this event.) There were plenty of spots to feel the strength of the Force, but I recommend a space along the railing on Deck 4 or on Deck 3 in the middle of the lobby atrium. It did get crowded, so you may want to arrive around 20 minutes early. After the take over, be ready to experience an out-of-this-world day on the high seas! 

    Thank you again for allowing us to assist you with all your magical plans, Laryssa! We hope you'll come back to "sea" us real soon!
