I’ve been on 5 Disney Cruises now. We stay in Texas and often guide the 7 evening cruises out of Galveston to avoid wasting us some cash on flights. However the journey we obtained again from final week was our first Marvel Cruise, formally often known as Marvel Day at Sea and Disney invited us to be hosted for this expertise.
I’m doing this writeup for individuals who could be occupied with reserving a Marvel Cruise and questioning what it’s all about. Is it well worth the hype? What do you have to anticipate? This weblog publish will reply all of these questions.
To begin with for those who’re questioning what you are able to do on a Disney Cruise, listed below are 100 issues (and that’s not all the pieces and even together with issues from Marvel Day at Sea).
What’s Marvel Day at Sea?
Marvel Day at Sea is a particular themed day on choose Disney Cruises. Dozens of Marvel characters converge on these sailings and also you get to see many that you just in any other case not see within the parks or on different cruises. Your complete day is Marvel themed. Although not required, many cruise goers additionally gown up in Marvel apparel or full on costumes (such as you would possibly see at a comicon conference). Dinner is Marvel themed, and as an alternative of Disney music taking part in all through the ship you’ll hear Marvel tunes. In the course of the day there are Marvel motion pictures taking part in within the theater, and at evening there’s a giant present on the deck with a fireworks finale.

Is the entire cruise a Marvel Cruise theme or only a day?
When you would possibly see some Marvel characters round throughout your crusing, the complete isn’t Marvel themed. Simply one of many “sea days” which means, a day that you just’re at sea the complete day and never embarking, debarking or stopping at an island. The good factor about that is you sorta get one of the best of each worlds with a Disney Cruise in addition to a Marvel Cruise. You see your common Disney favorites: Mickey, Minnie and mates, princesses like Cinderella, Tiana, Rapunzel, Jasmine and extra, and different well-liked Disney characters. On Marvel Day at Sea Mickey, Minnie and a few of their different mates gown up in Marvel apparel additionally.
On one different evening through the cruise there’s additionally an occasion referred to as Pirate Evening the place company and characters aboard gown up like pirates and have a particular pirate-themed present that evening.
How Does this Cruise examine to your different Disney Cruises?
This was our first themed Disney cruise (there’s additionally Star Wars Day at Sea in addition to Pixar Day at Sea) and we actually loved it. It was additionally our first 5 evening cruise. I personally nonetheless favor the 7 evening cruises as a result of I really feel prefer it takes a number of days to get to know your manner across the ship and two and out of your room. Then having a pair days to get all into the theme is enjoyable, however a pair additional days to kinda chill and luxuriate in extra of the boat is sweet too. That’s why I really like these additional nights. I didn’t wish to go sit in a film for two hours figuring out I might be out taking part in trivia or one thing.
On the 7 evening cruises I really feel like I get sufficient time to actually get pleasure from all the pieces. That stated, my husband thinks the 7 nights are manner too lengthy and that the 5 nights are good.
The Marvel Day at Sea was actually so cool. Actually it’ll be slightly unhappy occurring a “common” cruise after experiencing one thing so enjoyable. I really like Marvel as does my 9-year-old son Ty so this was actually a fantastic bucket-list expertise for us to verify off. If you happen to get pleasure from Marvel I feel it’s value including to yours as nicely.
Questioning how a Disney Cruise compares to a Disney Parks trip? I break it down in this publish.
Which ship is the Marvel Cruise on?
This 12 months Marvel Day at Sea sailings had been on the Disney Dream. This was our second time on this ship (the primary time was solely 3 nights). It’s considered one of Disney’s bigger cruise ships. We’d beforehand sailed on the Surprise and although small, it’s nonetheless fantastic 😉
The 2024 Marvel Day at Sea sailings are additionally on the Dream, leaving from Fort Lauderdale, FL.
Are meals and drinks included?
Your entire meals are included on Disney Cruises. Drinks are too as long as they’re not alcoholic drinks or bottled. There are additional snacks and popcorn and issues obtainable for buy as nicely. Vanellope’s candy store for instance had sweet and ice cream obtainable at an additional payment. However you will get delicate serve ice cream cones on the highest deck, and different desserts at dinner time or delivered to your room with free room service.
There’s additionally fast service eating places on board the place we frequently went for a fast slice of pizza, or order of fries.
Did your room sleep 5?
Sure!! It was so neat to get a room that sleeps 5 for our household. In the course of the day it was a queen mattress with a sofa within the “livingroom” space. Then at evening our stateroom attendant transformed the sofa right into a backside bunk, pulled the highest bunk down from the ceiling, and a murphy mattress got here down from the wall beside the bunk beds.
Not the entire staterooms sleep 5 although so if that’s one thing you want ensure you guide early to get one of the best worth!
Which characters did you see?
If you happen to watched our vlog movies you may need seen Ty get SO enthusiastic about assembly his favourite Marvel superheroes. Jayda was additionally excited to go meet and take photos with some characters. Lee Lee was lower than thrilled about it this time and instructed me “I used to be nervous” after I ask her how come she didn’t inform Rapunzel her favourite colour. “However I’ll inform her subsequent time,” she provides.
Together with Rapunzel we noticed: Jasmine, Belle, Cinderella, Tiana, Ariel, Donald, Goofy, Mickey, Minnie, Chip and Dale, Daisy, Pluto, Captain America (each Sam Wilson and Steve Rodgers), Black Panther (each T’Challa and Shuri), Dr. Unusual, Black Widow, Woody, Groot, Loki, Star Lord, Spider-Man, Iron Man and extra.
