Events on tap include classic film screenings on the ship's big screens and theaters, panel discussions, trivia, dancing, music and themed activities.
Get ready to be surrounded by fellow film lovers: this ship is going to be all movies, all the time, for the entire cruise. In fact, Disney Magic was chosen specifically because its theaters can accommodate high-quality video and audio screenings of films.
From behind-the-scenes stories through interactive panels to special presentations, the experience is described as a "classic movie paradise at sea."
While some movies might be kid-friendly, there are no movie selections specifically for children, so families with young ones might not be able to participate fully.
