Jedi Training and Star Wars Characters Aboard Disney Dream



Family-friendly cruises are hustling and bustling to provide great customer service and ensure a great overall experience. Disney Cruise Line will offer its guests a new thrill of the world’s most famous space saga.

Disney Dream turns 5 this year and the vessel is set to go into a 20-day dry dock for some upgrades in late October. The cruise line announced Tuesday in a press release that the ship will have new spaces in the Oceaneer Club, including a Star Wars play area and the high-tech interactive area the Disney Infinity, as well as a sweet shop.

Inspired by Han Solo’s spacecraft from the first three Star Wars films, Millennium Falcon is a play area aimed at kids aged between 3 and 12. All young Jedis-to-be can experience exciting adventures such as piloting “the spaceship through hyperspace and trigger light-speed jumps to different locations around the galaxy,” Disney said; learning how to use a lightsaber and control the Force from a Jedi Master before doing battle with the evil Darth Vader. The out-of-this-galaxy experience features Star Wars-themed crafts, games and activities. Kids can watch episodes from the Disney XD animated series “Star Wars Rebels” on a large screen and play video games.

The other cruise line companies are also competing to offer their guests unique experiences. Carnival Cruise Line’s new Carnival Vista, with capacity for nearly 4,000 passengers, boasts the first IMAX cinema at sea plus Skyride, a pedal-powered suspended track ride, as well as the Kaleid-o-Slide, a 455-foot-long raft ride. Norwegian Cruise Lines’ ‘freestyle’ cruise concept aims to attract families with its dance clubs, circus classes and even graffiti workshops.
