Less than two months after it was announced, the first official Star Trek: The Cruise has already sold out. If you missed out on getting your tickets, a single cabin now remains for the January 2017 sailing. And the only way to nab this baby is to enter a contest to win it.
The cruise was developed by Entertainment Cruise Productions under license by CBS Consumer Products. Similar to Disney's Star Wars Cruise, the Star Trek one will transform Norwegian Cruise Line’s Norwegian Pearl into an immersive heaven for Trekkies populated by crew members dressed in uniforms from the beloved TV and movie franchise. It will also feature cast members from the different Star Trek series, led by Captain James T. Kirk himself, William Shatner.
Other fan favorites headlining the first official Star Trek cruise are Marina Sirtis, Jonathan Frakes, Robert Picardo, John de Lancie, James Darren, Denise Crosby, Steven Rankin, Vaughn Armstrong, Casey Biggs and Terry Farrell. More are yet to be announced in the upcoming months.
In order to celebrate Star Trek’s 50th anniversary, every venue on the ship will re-create important Star Trek hangouts and destinations, including Star Trek: The Next Generation's Ten Forward, Quark’s bar from Deep Space Nine and Enterprise's 602 Club. There'll be special events that will focus on the characters as well as its social, technological and scientific impact. Oh, and one can’t forget that there will be parties, parties and more parties (it's a six-day cruise, after all) and gaming competitions.
The awesome six-day cruise will set sail from Jan. 9-15, 2017, from Miami, Fla., and will head to Cozumel, Mexico; Nassau, Bahamas; and Norwegian Cruise Line’s own private island, Great Stirrup Cay, Bahamas.
In order to get a chance to win that cabin, you’ll have to go to the official site to enter the contest. But you’ll have to wait a year to find out if you’ll get to seek out new life and new civilizations, since the winner will only be announced on Oct. 1, 2016.
