If you've ever dreamt of sailing to a galaxy far, far away with the likes of Han Solo and Princess Leia, that dream is about to become a reality. That is, if you define a galaxy far, far away as the Western Caribbean, and you're cool hanging at the pool with paid actors.
Disney Cruise Line has just announced the launch of “Star Wars Day at Sea,” a series of eight one-day events that’ll bring lightsaber-wielding Jedis, Stormtroopers, and other movie characters on board its Disney Fantasy cruise ship in 2016.
Along with hanging out with dudes pretending to be Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader, there’ll be screenings of all six movies (or three, if you only count the good trilogy), a Jedi Training Academy where you can learn how to fight with pretend lightsabers ('cause, why not, right?), as well as a club with intergalactic-themed cocktails with names like "Princess Leia on the Beach" for grown-ups. Nothing sexier than a Star Wars-themed adult beverage.
