On select sailings in 2017, guests on Disney Cruise Line will get to experience the Super Hero Life with a Marvel Day at Sea. These special sailings will be on the Disney Magic cruises to the Bahamas and the Canadian Coast which depart from New York Harbor in October and November of 2017.

What to Expect
Though it is all speculation – and uber fan-girling – at the moment. I suspect this will have a similar feel to the Star Wars Day at Sea with special deck parties, Marvel movies in the Walt Disney Theatre and of course meet & greets with your favorite Marvel heroes and hopefully villains as well. Release From DCL During Marvel Day at Sea, you’ll enjoy:
- A spectacular deck party, featuring dancing, fireworks and the largest collection of Marvel Super Heroes and villains ever assembled on a cruise ship
- Thrilling photo ops with some of your favorite heroes, including Captain America, Iron Man, Thor and Spider-Man
- The newest Marvel Studios blockbuster inside the Walt Disney Theatre—plus a Marvel movie marathon featuring past hits
- Open-air, Funnel Vision screenings of the latest Marvel TV animated series
- A fan-filled costume celebration in the ship’s Atrium
- Extraordinary games and activities at Disney’s Oceaneer Club and throughout the ship
- Surprise Super Hero and Super Villain appearances throughout the ship
- Amazing themed food and beverages
- Exclusive merchandise and collectibles
UPDATE from MARVEL: Black Widow and Hawkeye will also join this epic event. They are assembling with nearly a dozen others from the Marvel Universe, including Black Panther and Loki, who will make their very first appearance as part of a Disney vacation experience. The event also marks the first official appearance of Iron Man, Star-Lord, Gamora and Groot on a Disney Cruise Line ship. Rounding out the roster of Marvel Super Heroes that will be onboard are Spider-Man, Captain America, Thor and Doctor Strange.
Throughout this day long celebration, you will have the opportunity to see some of these legendary characters from the Marvel Universe up close and in person….
- If you’re booked on a Marvel Day at Sea cruise, you will be able to sign up for a designated time to meet Spider-Man, Iron Man and, for the first time, Black Panther during the sailing.
- In addition, you’ll have the chance for heroic encounters with Captain America, Thor, Black Widow, Hawkeye, Doctor Strange, Star-Lord, Gamora, Groot and Loki.
- Kids can train with some of their favorite Super Heroes in Marvel’s Avengers Academy.
- During the action-packed deck show spectacular, more than a dozen of your favorite Marvel Super Heroes will come together for an epic finale.
The Marvel Day at Sea itineraries are in October and November. This is also the time of year when many guests can experience Halloween on the High Seas and Very Merrytime Bahamian Cruises.
Marvel Day at Sea Costumes
Have you ever wanted to be Iron Man or Black Widow? Here’s your chance. A Marvel Day at Sea is a fantastic time to unleash your inner super hero. Need a few ideas? Check these our from our Amazon Shop:
These are the guidelines issued to all Guests for Halloween on the High Seas cruises, however they hold true for all costumes on Disney Cruise Line:
“Please Remember while Guests are invited to wear costumes, masks that completely cover a person’s face may only be worn when standing still at character photo locations and must be carried when moving around the ship. We also ask that you choose costumes that are not obstructive or offensive. To avoid any disappointment or delay in the boarding process, please refrain from bringing toys or props that resemble guns, knives, or other related implements will not be allowed onboard.”
Lightsabers and plastic pirate swords are fine. Toy guns (even with orange caps) are not allowed. If any toy/costume weapon looks too “real” it may be confiscated. Any confiscated items will be tagged, and you will be provided with instructions on how to claim it upon leaving the ship.
