My fiancee and one of her friends spent last Friday and Saturday (May 6 and 7) on the Disney Galactic Starcruiser, and what follows is a fairly bare-bones review.

The primary question/controversy regarding the Galactic Starcruiser seems to be, "Is the experience worth the cost?" There isn't a simple, yes or no answer to that question. The answer depends on how easily you can afford it, and my answer to that is, if you can comfortably afford to spend $5000+ for a two night experience, yes, it's worth it. The attention to detail and the commitment of the cast members is incredible. There are also so many things to do that you can't possibly be bored. In fact, in my estimation, you'd have to go on the Starcruiser at least three times to experience all of the storylines and complete all of the missions.

On the other hand, if the cost would be a burden for you, or would put you (deeper) in debt, I don't think the experience is worth that.

If you are considering doing this, I have one recommendation - unless you need it due to the size of your party, don't bother with the Galaxy Suite or the Captain's Suite. We had three adults in our party, two of us being a couple, so having the Galaxy Suite with its separate living room/sleeping area was a bonus, but we spent so little time in the cabin, if our friend hadn't come with us it would've been wasted money.

One of the less than spectacular aspects of the trip was the food. It was so-so, at breakfast and lunch. On the other hand, the dinners were quite good, but I think they suffered a bit from having to all be served at, or around the same time. It was obvious, particularly the first night, that some of the dishes had sat in the back for a while.

There was a mix of people who wore costumes and some who didn't. Some folks just wore Star Wars T-shirts, and some just wore street clothes. For me that really didn't break the immersion because I concentrated on the actors/crew members who never broke immersion.

The actors who played roles on the ship were very good. Not only did they know their roles really well, and were well versed in Star Wars lore, they were obviously trained in improvisation because they never seemed to miss a beat regardless of what was thrown their way. Interaction with these folks was not only encouraged, it was essential to an enjoyable trip.

I am generally an introvert, so I was a bit nervous about the whole interaction aspect of the experience. I decided to create my own character and interact with the crew members as that character, and it worked out quite well. My "character" was the proprietor of a chain of Power Converter distributors on Tatooine, and my opening in dealing with many of the characters was to introduce myself as such and ask if their power converter needs were being met by their current suppliers. I even had business cards and a few promo items (luggage tags and tote bags) made and handed them out at various times to other guests to advertise my business.

Unfortunately for my character, no one was in the market for a new power converter supplier, but my angle made an impression on the crew members and a couple of them remembered my character's name (as well as other guests' names) throughout the voyage just from a single introduction. That really impressed me as well because I had trouble just remembering some of their character's names!

There more children on the cruise than I expected. Those in the 8-12 y.o. age range really seemed to get into it. Apparently one nine year old who chose to help the First Order even outed his dad as "Resistance Scum"! Fortunately none of the kids on our cruise were particularly obnoxious, because that would've gotten old awfully quick. As it was it was still a bit of a balancing act to let the kids have their fun and not get too annoyed by their actions.

The crew members were well-trained at dealing with the kids and adeptly deflected their frequent interruptions without being condescending or scolding. Some folks brought kids who were younger than about 5 or 6 on the cruise, which I didn't really understand. Kids that young really couldn't participate in the roleplaying or the missions, so I would think the whole experience for them would be kind of boring and exhausting, and that would dampen their parents' experiences as well. Maybe the parents though the whole thing was more like a character meet and greet, or maybe they thought the whole thing would only last a year or two and they would miss it if they waited until the kids were older.

I took a lot of pictures on the trip, and my fiancée took even more, but I don't have any available to easily post at the moment. I will try to post some in the coming days as time allows.

A second recommendation I'd make to anyone considering this, especially if you're considering combining it with a longer Disney trip, is to give yourself a day to relax and unwind afterwards. It is an incredibly full 40 hour, or so, experience with little time to relax, assuming you try to get as much as possible out of it like we did.

Not that I'm going to be making this voyage any time soon, but I appreciate any big Star Wars fan giving an honest review. People can be so picky and annoying with their expectations that getting a review is a battle of whether the person making the review is genuine or is sensationalizing their experience.

I imagine I would enjoy it, but I wouldn't really even consider it unless they decided to go OT...

In addition to the somewhat natural/subconscious tendency for folks who have had the experience to give positive reviews (e.g., If I say it wasn't awesome, I'll look like a schmuck for spending all that money), small things can affect one's perspective and enjoyment of the experience for good or bad as well.

For example one or two of the crew members remembering my character's name and story naturally increased my enjoyment of the experience. The one crew member even talked up my made-up business when ever he saw me - "If any of you need power converters, make sure you contact my man, Flint here - he's got the best on the market."

On the other hand, someone who did all the same things I did, but felt slighted by one of the cast members, or whose "data pad" wasn't working right could easily end up with a bad taste in their mouth about the whole experience, and give a poor review as a result.

In the end, the experience is what you make it. If you go into it with a positive attitude and realistic expectations, I think you will have a blast. If you go into it stressing the money you spent on it, or expecting that you will be the center of attention, or get to do every single thing you want to do, you will likely end up disappointed.

Also, as I said in my original post, the food is kind of meh, so while it's not unreasonable to expect 5-star meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner, for the price of this experience, if getting a 2-star breakfast, a 2-star lunch and a 3/4-star dinner is going to ruin the whole experience for you, it's best to spend your money elsewhere.

This is an awesome review! Thank you so much for sharing! All the reviews have basically boiled down to: it's a fun, super interactive game, so go ready to play and have fun (even if it wears you out!)

Very excited to go on this voyage! I LOVE your idea of handing out swag from your business! I'll have to file that away and try something similar! Awesome idea!

Sorry to hear that the food was lackluster.

Though I'm personally tempted by the more luxurious cabins, everything I've heard says you'll hardly ever be in them (which is how I am when I'm at regular WDW, I'm only in the room to sleep and bathe!)

That said, I'm worrying about cramming too many adults into that tiny standard cabin with only one bathroom!

Please post pics when you can, especially of your custom items!

Thanks again, glad you had an amazing time!

Great review! Glad you had a good time. If you don't mind, I have some questions still that you can hopefully answer. Just looking for some clarity on a few things.

  • Were you assigned that 'power converter' character beforehand, or was that something you created yourself (props and all)?
  • Is there an officially designated 'lights out' time, where people are expected to return to their cabins, and all the staff disappear for the night, or can one find things to do (games, drink, staff interactions, etc.) during all hours of the night?
  • Are the designated meals the only way to get food during the day?
  • Do the cabin bathrooms have exhaust fans?
  • Is there some way to know about all the official activities/adventures ahead of time, or is it a matter of being in the right place at the right time?
  • Are you constantly in a state of FOMO?
  • Do the characters seem to pursue interacting with kids more than adults?
  • Is the lightsaber training game better in person than videos have made it seem?

I'm sure I have other questions, but those were the ones that jumped to my mind. 😅

I'm sure I have other questions, but those were the ones that jumped to my mind. 😅

  • Flint Cerullian, Proprietor of Twin Suns Power Converters of Tatooine, and his wife Cerise are characters I created myself, props and all. Our friend went a more humorous route - her character's name was simply "Peaches" and since she brought her lifelike (but not animated) Grogu with her, we referred to her as our nanny.
  • I don't know of a designated 'lights out' time, but most of the activities wrapped up around 10 each evening. By then the combination of fatigue and the desire to get an early start the next morning had us retiring to our cabin no later than 11. I don't think guests were restricted from wandering around the ship until the wee hours, but the gift shop and dining room were shut down and I'm guessing the bar, the Sublight Lounge, closed at some point, but I'm not sure what time.
  • I believe you could order snacks in the bar, but we didn't, so I don't know what, if anything, they served. The meals though run for a long time. I think lunch each day was served from 1-4 PM, there are two dinner services at 5:30 PM and 8 PM, and you'll be assigned the same seating each night, and breakfast on days 2 and 3 was served from about 7-10 AM. You also get a voucher for a free lunch on your excursion to Batuu. My understanding is that the voucher is good for two days starting on the day of your excursion to Batuu, and the day after, and you can use it in any of the parks. We used it at Docking Bay 7 the day of our excursion to Batuu and to our surprise, it even covered the cost of our alcoholic beverages at lunch. All alcohol onboard is extra.
  • If I recall correctly the bathrooms do have vents in the w.c. The bathroom in our cabin (a Galaxy Class Suite) was divided into three sections. On one side there was a small "water closet" with a commode and a sliding door that I think activated a vent fan when closed. On the other side was a huge walk-in shower area with two rain shower type shower heads. That was an interesting choice because there is no privacy screen or anything between the showers, so if two people are going to shower at once, they will have to be pretty comfortable with seeing each other naked! The shower area has a sliding frosted glass door separating it from a large area with a double vanity and two sinks which sits between the commode area and shower area.
  • About 30 days prior to your voyage, an itinerary will be uploaded to your "datapad", i.e. the PlayDisney app on your phone. This will include all of the activities like meals, the large story-driven get togethers with all of the passengers on the first and second nights, smaller group activities like "lightsaber training", "bridge training", "Sabacc lessons," and some games that are played in the atrium throughout the day (things like a bingo-style game, a "Newlywed Game" style game, etc.). That's the activities. The adventures are a different story. The adventures are largely driven by messages you will receive on your data pad from the cruiseliner characters, and how you respond to them. For example, you might get a message from the First Order officer saying something like, "I need more information on the ship's engineer, are you willing to help me?" Then you will get several responses to choose from. Things like, "Sure, I'd be happy to help the First Order," "No, I'll never help your kind," or "What's in it for me?" The response you chose may or may not initiate a mission for you, and how you respond will determine how much interaction you have with that character in the future. The more you refuse to help someone, the less likely they are to contact you in the future. On the other hand, the more positively you respond, the more likely they are to enlist your help in the future. There are also missions you receive while on Batuu that you may get from the characters on Rise of the Resistance and Smuggler's Run, so make sure you pay attention to your data pad while you're on Batuu and after you badge in to the rides.
  • No, you have to put the fear of missing something out of your mind. You absolutely are going to miss out on something. Disney designed this to be impossible to do everything on one trip. If you decide to help out the Resistance, you'll miss out on a lot of the First Order missions, and vice versa. I missed a lot of the "Scoundrel/Smuggler" storyline because I didn't realize until the second day who the smuggler contact was, and I didn't even realize there WAS a Jedi storyline until midway through the second day. Also, if you spend the majority of your time doing missions, you'll miss out on some of the side games I mentioned in the fifth bullet point above as well as some of the "optional" activities like Sabacc lessons (I missed the Sabacc lessons and tournament completely). If you have ever been to Celebration, or San Diego Comic-con, it's like that - you have to pick and choose what you want to do and realize that you'll never be able to do it all. Otherwise you're either going to drive yourself crazy or be unduly disappointed.
  • No, the actors playing the characters were adept at dealing with passengers of all ages, which impressed me, but they didn't seem to favor kids over adults. They are also really good at improvisation. When I asked the engineer if he was in the market for a new source of power converters he didn't miss a beat in responding that he got all of his power converters from Correllian Shipyard Supplies and he was pretty happy with them at the moment, but that he'd let me know if that changed. There were a few times the actors were making their canned, story-driving speeches when they were interrupted by enthusiastic kids, and they gently deflected them by saying, "That's right, and I want to talk to you more about that later!" I think as long as you have a good sense of humor, aren't obnoxious, and don't try to monopolize their time, all of your interactions with the actors will go well.
  • We were a little wary of the lightsaber training. It can accommodate something like 12-16 "students" and we feared we be in it with a bunch of little kids and feel really self-conscious about it. However, we lucked out, big time. Only the three of us - my fiancée, her friend and me - showed up for our training session, so it was like a private lesson. I guess it could be viewed as a little cheesy, but the "instructor" we had was fantastic. She talked about the Force like a zen master or martial arts instructor would and my fiancée and her friend, who met taking aikido lessons said it reminded them very much of that. The "game" itself was fun - it was all about deflecting laser blasts from a remote, not dueling the other participants or anything. Your mileage may vary greatly because, like I said, we pretty much had an ideal situation.
Happy to long-windedly answer any other questions that come to mind. :)

You're welcome.

I not only handed out swag, I bought some metallic 3-D printer filament and had a buddy of mine print out a bunch of republic credits and several bars of "beskar" for me. I used the credits and beskar to "bribe" the kids on the voyage to give me information on what I had missed. Like, "Hey, I notice /this/ is different than the last time I was here, do any of you guys know what happened?" Then when they told me, I gave them credits or beskar. They loved it and at one point I saw one of the kids showing the beskar ingot I gave him to the First Order officer who said, "Is that beskar??? That's very valuable you know! How did you obtain that?" I saw the kid look at me and gave him the finger across the throat sign like, "Don't tell him it was me!"

I might have been too hard on the food. Think of it like a banquet - the kitchen is preparing 100+ identical meals at a time, so quality is going to suffer a bit if compared to a sit-down dinner you order off the menu at one of the resort restaurants. That was dinner. Breakfast and lunch I would compare to a fairly good buffet in Las Vegas. It was better than you'd get at the Hampton Inn, but don't expect gourmet fare at every meal.

If you are travelling with 3 or more adults, and the upcost of one of the suites isn't an undue burden, I would say go for it. The suite still only had one bathroom, but the bedroom had a door for some privacy and there was room for two adults to sleep separately in the "living room" area. We went a little overboard on costumes (one for arriving, a second one for dinner the first night, a third for our excursion to Batuu, a fourth for our portrait experience, a fifth for dinner the second night, and a sixth for departure on the third day) so we had more suitcases and greater need for closet space than we normally would have for a two night hotel stay. I can't imagine how crammed it would have felt for the three of us, let alone four in a standard cabin with all our luggage (we had one suitcase that was nothing but footwear!).

I will definitely post pics soon, but it may not be until this coming weekend.

Wow! Appreciate the in-depth answers, thanks! Definitely a lot to consider and ponder. The interiors look really cool. Feel free to share more pics! It's cool that you made the most of it by creating your own character, and your own swag to hand out! Something tells me most guests wouldn't go to such lengths. I know I probably wouldn't. 😅

I just thought of a couple more questions, sorry. Specifically regarding immersion....

  • In the videos I've seen so far, there seems to be a significant lack of droids and aliens. And by 'aliens', I mean people in masks, heh. In the original promotional concept art, they made it seem like many alien species and several protocol and astromech droids would be onboard. Is the female rodian the only non-humanoid alien onboard currently? And is SK the only droid? I personally feel that a lack of roaming aliens and droids lessens the immersion inside GE, and am concerned about the same onboard the Halcyon.
  • When you stop to "visit" Batuu, does it feel like you're just going back to reality for a while, since you're suddenly surrounded by the average park attendees? Are there things only Halcyon guests get to do on Batuu, to help keep some sense of immersion going?
  • Does the Twi'lek singer perform regularly throughout the day, or is it a once-a-night, one-song-only type thing?

I'll definitely share more pics when I have a chance. I don't want to post anything too spoilery, and my fiancée has a lot more pics than I do, particularly of our cabin and other locations on the ship, so I'll need to get those from her.

  • The captain is technically an alien, but her, the Rodian musician and the Twilek singer are the only obvious aliens. A few of the guests bought wore Twilek or Tortuga(?) - Asohka Tano's race - head pieces, but that was it. There really weren't any roaming aliens. And SK is the only droid, unless you count the cabin AI, which is supposed to be a droid located elsewhere on the ship.
  • I was able to suspend disbelief about being among "normies" on our trip to Batuu, partly because when the cast members on Batuu see the pin you are wearing, they treat you a little differently than they do regular park guests in an effort to enhance your experience. Additionally, you continue to get messages from the crew while you'd on Batuu asking you to investigate this or hack into that and report back to them. You're never truly going to feel like you're on another planet, but if you focus on the "game" you can tune out the guests in Mickey Mouse shirts.
  • The Twilek Singer performs a mini concert (5-6 songs?) in the dining room during dinner the first night, then there is an autograph session with her on the second day. Then she performs an acoustic set in the atrium on the second day (maybe 3-4 songs? I'm not sure because we skipped the autograph thing and the acoustic set).

The primary question/controversy regarding the Galactic Starcruiser seems to be, "Is the experience worth the cost?" There isn't a simple, yes or no answer to that question. The answer depends on how easily you can afford it, and my answer to that is, if you can comfortably afford to spend $5000+ for a two night experience, yes, it's worth it. The attention to detail and the commitment of the cast members is incredible. There are also so many things to do that you can't possibly be bored. In fact, in my estimation, you'd have to go on the Starcruiser at least three times to experience all of the storylines and complete all of the missions.
It truly looks fabulous and I appreciate all the information you provided as it helped immensely!
On the other hand, if the cost would be a burden for you, or would put you (deeper) in debt, I don't think the experience is worth that.
Basically this for just about everything really, though I feel it's more important in this case if you're not one who particularly likes the era it's set in or the interactive aspect. I too can be a bit of an introvert but not only that I don't care much for having to be constantly plugged in to get something from an experience. Based on all that's included I could see the price being worth it to some who enjoy those aspects of total immersion, personally I prefer a hands off visitor/spectator approach of just taking the sights and coolness factor. As well as come and go as you please and not being confined to a specific set itinerary.

Also it's not just the cost of the experience but travel to and from for those of us far away especially for those who cannot split the cost with anyone so there are several better options to spend that kind of Money on that goes further and last longer than two days that don't require companions, not to mention since you're already there you almost have to stay longer to take in more of DW and Universal because you can't fit everything in in two days of the Hotel experience. And in most cases a person won't be able to come back again as this is a once in a lifetime trip, so for someone like me trying to decide costs and worth I would get more out of a trip to say Japan or Greece for a week over a weekend at an over crowded Disney park experience.

I'm not knocking the experience itself as I'm sure it could be a lot of fun even if you don't immerse yourself into the story, and the ship design looks great as well as a neat and fun place to explore/experience. I've just come to the conclusion after weighing all the options available to me it isn't the right choice financially at this point in time, if the ever offer an option for singles at $2,400 I'd do it in a heartbeat! Considering my 7 day cruise was almost double that I figure it would be Money well spent for once in a lifetime experience.

There are facebook groups that match singles with potential roommates to split the cost of a standard cabin, which would be the $2400 you're looking to spend.

Maybe sharing a room with a stranger isn't ideal, but it's out there, FYI.....

Just what I need, to get murdered on the fake spaceship.

Mousedroid, I love all the info and it makes me want to go super bad. Please share more pictures if you have them!!!

Was the excursion to Galaxy’s Edge timed? I’ve heard it’s stressful to get in and out on “their time.”

Yeah, I kind of forgot about posting more pics. I need to get on that.

The excursion to Galaxy's didn't feel at all rushed. We went a little after 8, and stayed until 1:30, but could have stayed until 4, I believe. In that time we road RotR, MF:SR, had lunch at Docking Bay 7, and drinks at Oga's. We also completed a few missions related to the Star Cruiser storylines.

I guess if you also tried to fit in Savi's and Droid Depot, or if you'd never been to Galaxy's Edge, it might feel rushed, but really you can spend 8 hours there if you want, so it would depend on each individual's circumstance.

Did you have to use your personal phone or were you provided a “data pad?” I believe the first cruises’ patrons/influencers were given a loaner for their stay.

You can ask for one but I think they expect everyone to use their own phone. If it were me I'd request a data pad instead of putting that heavy use on my phone battery, not to mention I don't really want more companies tracking apps installed.

Did you have to use your personal phone or were you provided a “data pad?” I believe the first cruises’ patrons/influencers were given a loaner for their stay.
We each used our own phones. I'm guessing you could ask for a data pad, but I'm not sure how many people did.

It was definitely a drain on the phone's battery though. I can often go two days of normal usage without having to charge my phone, but within several hours of playing the game, I was below 30%>

I just found out about this thread from a friend and really appreciate the review. I watched the Rebelscum videos, but it helps getting other people's take on it as everyone is going to be different.

The biggest issue I have is the singer. From what I have seen/heard she performs very modern day/Earth-like music and not the kind that I like in the slightest. I also noticed in the Rebelscum videos that a lot of the crew tend to dress very Earth-like too. Almost like the get their uniforms from the Gap.
