There's little we can think of that would be more unpleasant than being stuck on a large boat filled with comic book fans, but if we had to come up with something, it would be being stuck on a large boat filled with comic book fans, expecting to see Star-Lord from Guardians of the Galaxy, and getting this guy instead:
That's exactly what cruisegoers on the Marvel Day At Sea cruise are going to get though, according to a post on the Disney Parks Blog. Star-Lord, Gamora, and Drax will be on board the ship, though we have to assume that it won't be Zoe Saldana and Dave Bautista. If you're lucky, Drax will be played by James Elsworth. This sort of thing works when you're talking about people dressed in cartoon character costumes. You know that's not the real Goofy you're hugging, but you can let it slide and suspend your disbelief. Nobody wants to deal with a Chris Pratt impersonator trying to weasel his way back to your room for a threesome. Goofy, on the other hand…
Ahem. Additionally, the ship's nightclub will be transformed into a Ravager hideout.
While you mingle with the interstellar outlaws, an electrifying alien dance performance gets the fun started, amping up the energy before a few of your favorite Guardians join the party. As the night continues, you may even get to see the dance-loving Star-Lord get his groove on. As Drax says, "There are two types of beings in the universe: those who dance and those who do not." Which type are you?
Any idea what tunes will be on the playlist throughout the night? You guessed it! Like I said, Star-Lord has awesome taste in music!
But if it's the counterfeit Star-Lord as pictured above, we can only imagine what his taste in music is like. Presumably all sound-alike tracks based on popular artists. In any case, if you're feeling brave, you can find out this fall on select 7- and 8-night Bahamian and Canada cruises (wait, who the hell takes a cruise to Canada?).
