To commemorate Disney Cruise Line's 25th anniversary, special "Silver Anniversary at Sea" entertainment, merchandise, and celebratory experiences will be featured during summer 2023 sailings onboard all five Disney Cruise Line ships.


Captain Mickey and Captain Minnie will have all-new looks featuring swirling designs reminiscent of ocean waves and multi-toned fabric in the signature color of the celebration: Shimmering Seas.

There will be a brand-New Signature Song created especially for the "Silver Anniversary at Sea."

The anniversary of Disney Cruise Line also brings a brand-new membership tier for Castaway Club, which recognizes returning Disney Cruise Line guests with exclusive rewards and perks.

Honoring 25 years of Disney magic at sea, members will now earn the distinction of Pearl status after 25 Disney Cruise Line vacations. Pearl members will unlock new at-home and onboard benefits, which will be announced in early 2023.

The new menu, items and drinks sounds really cool to me. Those costumes are gross though!

I often wondered if they’d ever have a status level being platinum. Now we know. 😀
