Next year, Disney Cruise Line will celebrate its 25th anniversary at sea with new experiences for its travelers. There will be limited-time “Silver Anniversary at Sea” offerings on all five of its ships from May to September 2023.
“For two-and-a-half decades, Disney Cruise Line has built an incredible legacy of creating unforgettable vacation memories for families around the world,” said Sharon Siskie, senior vice president and general manager at Disney Cruise Line. “Of course, at the heart of this anniversary celebration are our dedicated cast and crew members who continuously deliver legendary service and create magic at sea for our guests every day. Whether returning as a member of our Castaway Club or sailing with us for the first time, we are thrilled to invite guests of all ages to be a part of our very special anniversary festivities next summer.”
Silver Anniversary At Sea
Just when you thought Disney cruises couldn’t get better, they are throwing an anniversary celebration like no other. The summer sailings will have new entertainment, exclusive enhancements, new décor and merchandise, and other surprises along the way.
A few of the limited-time experiences include:
- Captain Minnie Mouse and Captain Mickey Mouse in new, coordinated uniforms. This appearance will only be made on the “Silver Anniversary at Sea” sailings.
- Disney Cruise Line will debut a song that will be the soundtrack of this silver celebration, “tunefully threading nostalgic memories of vacations past with the anticipation of new family adventures to come,” says Disney. Guests will hear the song in several ways during the cruises.
- Food, desserts, and drinks will be themed for the celebrations.
Guests can commemorate the special sailing with the “Shimmering Seas Collection,” a line of merchandise, including clothes, accessories, drinkware, and keepsakes, designed exclusively for the event with a new signature color.
New Membership Tier For Castaway Club
Disney Cruise Line’s Castaway Club is also getting an upgrade for the big event. The Castaway Club recognizes returning guests with exclusive rewards and perks. To mark the silver anniversary, there will be a brand-new membership tier. Members will now earn Pearl status after 25 Disney Cruise Line vacations. Pearl members will receive new at-home and on-board benefits. Those exclusive benefits will be announced in early 2023.
