This summer, Disney Cruise Lines turns 25 years old – and that means a celebration is in store! Together, all five ships will honor Disney Cruise Line’s “Silver Anniversary at Sea” with new offerings that’ll make your next sailing so much more magical. If you’re cruising between May and September 2023, you’ll have a chance to experience the Silver Anniversary excitement for yourself.

What, exactly, will the Disney Cruise Line “Silver Anniversary at Sea” include? We’ve got a peek at the different offerings that you’ll find onboard this summer.

Experience a New Fireworks Show

One of the hallmark moments in Disney Cruise Line’s history? In 1998, it became the first cruise line to ever produce a fireworks show at sea! Ever since then, cruises have carried on the tradition, making fireworks a key piece of the Disney cruising experience. 

In honor of the Silver Anniversary, Disney Cruise Line will introduce a brand-new fireworks show that’ll shimmer, shine, and capture Guests’ attention with fresh magic. If you’re traveling on select “Silver Anniversary at Sea” itineraries, you’ll have the chance to catch this limited-time evening extravaganza. What can you expect? Well, it’s sure to dazzle and impress, with fireworks set to iconic Disney music – and there will be a brand-new signature song created just for the Silver Anniversary.

This 25th anniversary fireworks show will be part of most Bahamian, Caribbean, and Mediterranean cruises during summer 2023.

In addition to fireworks displays, the captain’s reception is another staple of any Disney Cruise Line experience. A longtime tradition across cruising as a whole, the captain’s reception welcomes guests and gives you a chance to enjoy some drinks, meet the ship’s captain and officers, and even sneak in some character meet and greets! But for the “Silver Anniversary at Sea,” this tradition is getting even better!

On cruises that set sail during Disney Cruise Line’s 25th anniversary celebration, Guests will get the opportunity to experience a reimagined (and extra-special) version of the captain’s reception. 

During one evening of the cruise, Guests will be invited to join the captain and cruise director in the atrium for a special anniversary toast. As you raise your glass, you’ll also be able to catch appearances from Captain Mickey Mouse and Captain Minnie Mouse, both of whom will be dressed to the nines in shimmering silver new looks! 

This reception is also an opportunity to hear a rendition of the new “Silver Anniversary at Sea” theme song while you’re onboard.

Castaway Club Members Will Receive a Limited-Edition Gift

The piece will feature a design created by Disney artist Joe Kaminski, whose work appears in The Art of Disney galleries, Disney resort hotels, and throughout Disney Cruise Line ships. The art print is available until supplies last.
