While Star Wars Day at Sea continues to blast off aboard the Disney Fantasy for 2017, the Disney Cruise Line is preparing for its next set of theme cruises – Marvel Day at Sea – this coming fall and now also in 2018 as well. This year, the Disney Magic will host superheroes and villains departing from New York, New York, and next year, the same ship will repeat the sailings from Miami, Florida.

Plus, the program has already been enhanced for both years from what was previously revealed, including the debut of Iron Man and Doctor Strange at sea, the latter of which will have his own stage show. The special day at sea will also feature Black Panther and Loki during photo-op meet-and-greets. Doctor Strange will take over the Walt Disney Theater as he struggles with doubt before embracing his mystic arts power and enlisting the help of the audience to combat the Dark Dimension.

Spider-Man, Captain America, Thor and others will also be among those characters available to interact with onboard. Families will be able to try their luck at Marvel trivia, and kids will have the opportunity to enjoy games, arts and crafts and other activities in the Marvel’s Avengers Academy in Disney’s Oceaneer Club. Meanwhile, exclusive merchandise and special food and beverage items will be available.

Rounding out the entertainment will be screenings of Marvel Cinematic Universe films and Disney XD shows like Marvel’s Avengers Assemble, Marvel’s Ultimate Spider-Man and Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. But the main event will be reserved for an epic deck party complete with music, dancing and games before a production of pyrotechnics, lighting, sound effects and an impressive gathering of superheroes and villains.
