What This Guide Covers

What is Marvel Day at Sea?

The Marvel Day at Sea is a special day on select sailings of the Disney Magic.

From characters to fireworks to exclusive shows, passengers can immerse in a full day Marvel Cinematic Universe experience on a Marvel Disney cruise. 

During this immersive experience, the Disney cruise ship transforms to host special Meet and Greets with your favorite Marvel characters, movie marathons, shows and experiences all related to the MCU and the great set of characters Disney brought to life from the comics.

How is Marvel Day at Sea sailing different than a regular Disney Cruise?

The Marvel Day at Sea focuses on shows, events, and encounters from the famous Marvel movies for a full day. 

Instead of your “typical” Disney character encounters, meet-and-greets and entertainment, you get to see your favorite Marvel characters. For example, on this special day you might meet Captain America or Captain Marvel. 

And instead of a fun sing-along with the Fab 4, you get to see a stunt show from the Avengers, where the Marvel Super Heroes and Villains face off in an incredible battle at sea.

Do the Marvel activities Cost Extra?

Marvel Day at Sea activities, shows, and character greetings are no additional charge, and are included in the normal fare. Themed cocktails and merchandise cost extra.

Is the Disney Cruise fireworks show different on a Marvel at Sea sailing?

The Disney Cruise Fireworks show features fireworks and songs from the Avengers soundtrack. It will occur during the deck party after the special evening show.

The Marvel evening festivities replace the traditional Pirates night that would take place on regular sailings.  

What is the Avengers Academy?

The Avengers Academy is hosted by Spider-Man, Black Widow, Hawkeye and Thor, teaching younger guests (the kids) the essence of being a hero, playing Marvel-themed games, participating in activities and making Marvel-themed crafts. This is all done in the Oceaneers Club.

From which ports does the Marvel Day at Sea Disney Cruise Originate?

Miami is the primary port of origination, but the two cruise sets (Caribbean vs. Bahamian) have some different destinations, even within each cruise type, although all of the cruises stop at Disney Castaway Cay.
