There are a ton of familiar Marvel faces to encounter on the Disney Magic.

Brand-new to the Disney vacation experience, Black Panther joined the collection of Super Heroes aboard the Disney Magic for Marvel Day at Sea.

When he’s not showing off his mastery of unarmed combat skills during an epic battle at sea, Black Panther is inspiring young guests with his superhuman strength and intellect.

The mischievous Loki also made his debut to the Disney vacation experience during Marvel Day at Sea. He may even charm you like only the God of Mischief can. That is, when he isn’t resenting the shadow of his half-brother, Thor.

Even Spider-Man needs to relax after showing off his super strength and agility, and of course there’s no better place to do that than a Disney cruise.

You may also find Doctor Strange teaching kids how to create portals to other worlds…

Black Widow and Hawkeye inspiring them to unleash their inner super hero…

Or Captain America embodying honor, integrity, courage and trustworthiness.
