The Master of the Mystic Arts will soon be seen aboard the Disney Magic.

The premiere of Marvel Day at Sea is just around the corner! Marvel fans will want to join us as we count down to this epic celebration on select cruises aboard the Disney Magic.

In the coming weeks, we’re featuring some of the mighty Marvel Super Heroes you can meet onboard during the daylong event, giving you insights into who they are and how you can get some face time with them.

Today, the spotlight is on the Master of the Mystic Arts… Doctor Strange!

Doctor Strange is one of the most powerful sorcerers in existence. Once an expert surgeon, a car accident severely damaged his hands, sending him on a quest that led to his discovery of the Mystic Arts. His magical repertoire includes energy projection, matter transformation, teleportation, dimensional travel and time travel, to name just a few.

During Marvel Day at Sea, you can see Doctor Strange in his very own show in the Walt Disney Theatre. Through the power of special effects and projections, Doctor Strange demonstrates his mastery of the Mystic Arts. Doctor Strange may also be encountered around the ship, summoning his powers and seeking enlightenment, as well as appearing in the nighttime deck show.

Stay tuned to meet more Super Heroes assembling for Marvel Day at Sea, which premieres on select 7- and 8-night Disney Cruise Line sailings from New York this fall, and returns on select 5-night Western Caribbean cruises from Miami in early 2018.
