Sounds of Celebration

DCL will also introduce a special, signature song for the event. Nostalgia and new family adventures will be the theme for this song which will pop-up in a variety of ways during the summer sailings.

Entertainment & Food

Entertainment, experiences, and food will be a special part of the anniversary celebration. From special evening experiences to culinary creations, desserts, and specialty cocktails, the sea has no limits. 

Merchandise

To commemorate the special sailings, DCL will debut the Shimmering Seas Collection which features a new signature color just for the event. This color is inspired by the glow of sunshine reflecting on the turquoise waters. Guests can pick up apparel, accessories, drinkware, and more. 

Castaway Club Membership Tier Surprise

In honor of this special milestone, DCL is also introducing a new membership tier, which recognizes returning guests. Members will now earn the distinction of Pearl status after 25 Disney Cruise Line vacations.

More will be announced in 2023 regarding the new at-home and onboard benefits that come with the Pearl status.
