Forget the Enterprise, everyone’s favorite galactic pilot is ditching outer space for the oceans of earth. Star Trek the Cruise II will sail in 2018, both led by George Takei, who starred as Sulu in Star Trek: The Original Series. Over 4,000 fans have already pre-registered for cabins aboard the 2018 cruises, with both expected to sell out faster than the inaugural 2017 Star Trek: The Cruise, which was completely booked less than two months after it was first announced. Star Trek: The Cruise is the first and only authorized cruise of the popular science-fiction franchise, under license by CBS Consumer Products.
“I am so excited and honored that so many of you are so eager to vacation with me and my Star Trek colleagues,” Takei said. He will be joined by additional cast members from the film and television franchise, who will be announced in the coming weeks.
Star Trek: The Cruise offers a fully immersive experience for Star Trek fans with innovative programming that brings stars together with guests in an extraordinary journey. Voyage 1 sails through the Caribbean aboard the Norwegian Pearl from January 5-11, 2018 and will be followed by Voyage 2 from January 11-16, 2018. The luxury ship will be redesigned to feature sites inspired by the television show and films, including “Sandrine’s II,” the sister Restaurant of Chez Sandrine (Star Trek: Voyager), as well “13 Forward” (the Officer’s Bar influenced by 10 Forward and best described by Captain Picard as the “Hub of the ship’s social activity”) and the exclusive bar to get your Star Trek cocktails known as “The Captain’s Club.” Highlights of the cruise include nightly themed parties, such as “Starfleet’s Intergalactic Gala” and “The Festival Of The Moon Party” to name a couple, as well as Actor Clinics and Q&A seminars, casino tournaments and interactive gameshows. The private island of Harvest Caye will be refitted as a pleasure planet with Star Trek themed events planned shoreside. The cruise will also hold multiple events onboard with key cast and crew members from Star Trek, as well as experts in space, science and technology.
