Walt Disney Co. will leverage its ownership of the Marvel Comics brand by creating a Marvel Day at Sea on seven sailings of the Disney Magic in the fall of 2017.
Marvel Day at Sea will involve a deck party, Marvel-themed youth activities, superhero meet-and-greets, merchandise and unique food and beverage offerings, according to Disney Cruise Line.
Also featured will be at-sea screenings of fan-favorite Marvel films, including the newest theatrical releases, as well as viewings of the Disney XD shows “Marvel’s Avengers Assemble”, “Marvel’s Ultimate Spider-Man” and “Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy.”
