The Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser takes guests on an immersive cruise experience in a galaxy far, far away. However, this will soon change. Today Disney announced that the Halcyon will be going on its final cruise from September 28-30, 2023.
The following statement was shared by Disney:
The final voyage for Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser will take place Sept. 28-30, 2023.
Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser is one of our most creative projects ever and has been praised by our Guests and recognized for setting a new bar for innovation and immersive entertainment. This premium experience gave us the opportunity to try new things on a smaller scale of 100 rooms, and we will take what we’ve learned to create future experiences that can reach more of our Guests and fans.
We will be contacting Guests booked for voyages departing on or after Sept. 30 to discuss their options and modify their plans. To prioritize these Guests, we are pausing new bookings until May 26.
We are so proud of all of the Cast Members and Imagineers who brought Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser to life and look forward to delivering an excellent experience for Guests during the remaining voyages over the coming months.
Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser launched in the spring of 2022. Those who experienced it loved it but many found the price prohibitive to be able to experience this fully immersive Star Wars experience.
Star Wars: Glactic Starcruiser Experience
Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser takes guests to a galaxy far, far away on a galactic adventure. While aboard the Halcyon, guests get to experience character encounters, go on interactive missions, go on remote planet excursions, and more. During their two night voyage guests interact with the Resistance and the First Order, visit Batuu, and create their own Star Wars story based on the decisions they make.
The story told in Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser finds the ship marking its 275th anniversary with a celebratory re-creation of its maiden voyage to Batuu, a far-flung destination along the galaxy’s Outer Rim at the edge of Wild Space guests experience when they visit Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. The planet is home to Black Spire Outpost, a bustling, infamous port home to smugglers, traders and adventurers wishing to avoid any unnecessary … entanglements with the First Order.
After the starcruiser establishes its orbit around Batuu, guests take dedicated transports directly to the planet’s surface, disembarking through an exclusive entrance at the outpost’s Docking Bay 3. Upon arrival, guests may receive messages from characters in the Star Wars: Datapad within the Play Disney Parks app – sent by those they met onboard the ship – to engage in special and specific missions on Batuu. As they accomplish various tasks – from “slicing” (hacking) systems to delivering messages and more – their reputations within the story build and evolve, impacting how their adventures unfold when they return to the ship later that day.
