Take a Ride on the Star Trek Cruise

Themed cruise ships are getting more and more popular. The Walking Dead’s themed cruise is heading out next year and even football star Rob Gronkowski has his own party cruise that will set sail in 2016. So of course one of the biggest Sci-Fi franchises has their very own themed cruise ship too. The Star Trek cruise will hit the ocean in 2017.

But there is some bad news for Trekkies. The cruise is already sold it out and it actually sold out in just two short months. I doubt there will be another Star Trek cruise because this one is pretty special.

For Star Treks’ 50th Anniversary, the Norwegian Cruise Line will embark on a 6-day cruise from January 9th to January 15th in the year 2017. The cruise will head from Miami, Florida to Cozumel in Mexico, Nassau in the Bahamas and the cruise line’s own private island in the Bahamas, Great Stirrup Cay.

Everything to do with the cruise will be Star Trek themed. Even locations from the classic show will be recreated on the ship. Captain Kirk himself, William Shatner, will be the official host and will be joined by other cast members like Robert Picardo, Jonathan Frakes, Marina Sirtis, James Darren, Denise Crosby, Vaughn Armstrong, John de Lancie, Steven Rankin, Terry Farrell and Casey Biggs.

Passengers will be able to take part in Star Trek competitions, parties and events and even mingle with the stars of the show. The crewmembers of the Norwegian Cruise Line will get in the Star Trek spirit too wearing replicas of the multi-colored uniforms from the show.

Star Trek has always had a huge fan base. So it is really no surprise that tickets sold out so quickly. Hopefully some of the bigger Star Trek fans were able to reserve a spot on this one in a lifetime Star Trek experience!
