I finally got to see “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” last weekend and, like many of you, I absolutely loved it. Action, humor, heart … I have to admit, I shed a few tears along the way. There were just so many emotional moments with some of my favorite characters.

Speaking of favorite characters … following the film’s release, I am beyond excited to announce that the new Black Panther and Okoye, General of the Dora Milaje, will make their Disney Cruise Line debut exclusively during Marvel Day at Sea beginning in January! The iconic Wakandan warriors will join the largest assembly of Super Heroes and Villains from the Marvel universe aboard the Disney Dream.

For the first time aboard one of our ships, you’ll get a chance to meet the newest protector of Wakanda with an all-new Black Panther heroic encounter!  

The Black Panther will also appear in “Heroes Unite”, the event’s signature nighttime spectacular featuring special effects, stunts and pyrotechnics.

And if you’re ready to become a warrior ally of Wakanda, then you cannot miss the brand-new show featuring the fearsome general, Okoye. In the atrium, “Warriors of Wakanda” will have recruits train with the mighty Dora Milaje in an interactive experience for the whole family.  

Marvel Day at Sea is one action-packed day aboard a five-night sailing on the Disney Dream where you can interact with all your favorite Super Heroes and Villains through all-day entertainment, including heroic encounters, stage shows, film and TV screenings, unique merchandise, themed food and beverage offerings, and activities for families, kids and adults. Marvel Day at Sea will take place on nine Western Caribbean cruises sailing from Miami in early 2023. 

  • Departing Jan. 7, Jan. 21, Feb. 4, Feb. 18 and March 4, 2023, the itinerary features Georgetown, Grand Cayman and Disney’s private island in the Bahamas, Castaway Cay. 
  • Departing Jan. 16, Jan. 30, Feb. 13 and Feb. 27, 2023, the itinerary includes stops at Cozumel, Mexico and Castaway Cay
