Are you a big fan of Black Panther?  Do you have a child whose favorite Marvel superhero is T’Challa or Shuri?  Are you fascinated by Wakanda?

Well, did you know that a great place to be for a Black Panther fan is a Disney cruise?

You can have fun on a lot of Disney cruise ships if you love Black Panther.  For example, one of the restaurants on the Disney Wish cruise ship is Worlds of Marvel, themed to (what else?) Marvel.  You’ll get a kick out of the menu which includes nods to different places in the Marvel Cinematic Universe like Wakanda!

But if you want to take the Black Panther experience even further, then consider booking a Marvel Day at Sea cruise.

This is a regular Disney cruise with more of a Marvel theme.  It takes place during select five-night Disney Dream cruises from Fort Lauderdale to the Western Caribbean and the Bahamas.

Character Experiences

What’s really great about these cruises is the character experiences.  Over thirty superheroes and villains will be onboard for the cruise, which makes for wonderful opportunities.  And the character list includes T’Challa, Shuri, Okoye from Black Panther!

And if you are a fan of other Marvel movies, you’ll be happy to know that other characters in attendance include Spider-Man, Loki, Thor, Black Widow, Steve Rogers as Captain America, Sam Wilson as Captain America, Star-Lord, Gamora, Ant Man, Wasp, Captain Marvel, Hawkeye, Kate Bishop, and Shang-Chi.

Warriors of Wakanda Show

Though perhaps more exciting for fans of Black Panther is the Warriors of Wakanda Show!  Okoye leads a captivating demonstration where you’ll see what it takes to train alongside the Dora Milaj.  This is a fun experience for the whole family.

Other Experiences

Guests are encouraged during this Marvel celebration to dress up as their favorite superhero or villain.  So this is the perfect opportunity to pull out those Black Panther costumes.  And if you don’t already have one, you can find a Black Panther costume here.

The Black Panther will also appear in “Heroes Unite”.  This is Marvel Day at Sea’s signature nighttime spectacular.  It has stunts, special effects & pyrotechnics.

There are other experiences you could have on the cruise that are really fun for a Black Panther fan.  For example, you could see one of the Black Panther movies playing on the big screen once again at the Buena Vista Theatre or you could see it on deck (depending on the schedule of the cruise).  And Black Panther trivia could come up during the Family Trivia session.  These are just a couple of ways you can have fun as a Black Panther fan.

Booking a Disney Cruise
