The Turner Classic Movie cruise sets sail today for the fourth time in as many years on Disney Magic. Loaded with a full ship of passionate movie fans sharing and watching films, those on board will be seeing the actors and talent who made them, hearing stories from behind the scenes and enjoying special panels.
Sailing October 21-26 from Port Canaveral, Disney Magic will take movie fans to Key West and Disney Cruise Line‘s private island in the Bahamas, Castaway Cay. On board? Along with movie stars and producers Richard Dreyfuss , Shirley Jones , Roger Corman, Tab Hunter, Ann Blyth, Diane Baker and James Karen, game show host Alex Trebek, producer-writer-actress Illeana Douglas, author and film noir expert Eddie Muller and film historian Bruce Goldstein of The Film Forum.
TCM’s Robert Osborne and Ben Mankiewicz will serve as the official hosts for the star-studded cruise. Also featured, the Mont Alto Motion Picture Orchestra, which is celebrating 20 years of reviving the art of silent film music. Back by popular demand will be Hot Sardines, the foot-stomping jazz band from New York making its third TCM Classic Cruise appearance.
Along the way, travelers will be treated to a wide variety of Turner Classic Movie cruise -themed events and activities, including in-depth interviews and Q&A sessions with the special guests, screenings of great movies, unique presentations, trivia games and more.
This year’s voyage marks the second time the Turner Classic Movie cruise will take place aboard the Disney Magic, the Disney Cruise Line ship that ranked #1 in the large ships category of the Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Poll. One of the most admired and recognizable ocean liners in the world, the Disney Magic underwent a complete renovation just prior to the December 2013 TCM Classic Cruise.
