The COVID-19 pandemic continues to have a big impact on in-person events. The latest move is for the fifth official Star Trek cruise.
Star Trek: The Cruise returns in 2022
Today the operators of Star Trek: The Cruise announced that the fifth voyage planned for 2021 has been postponed for a year. The new dates will be February 26-March 5, 2022. All of the actors previously scheduled for the 2021 cruise will be on board for 2022 with more to be added (see list below). The cruise departs from Port Canaveral, FL for Nassau, Bahamas; San Juan, Puerto Rico and St. Maarten.
“We are committed to helping our entire universe remain safe and have been working closely with the cruise industry to make sure the health of our guests, actors and staff come before everything else,” says Greg Laubach, Executive Director, Business Development at Entertainment Cruise Productions. “We’re especially grateful to all of the Star Trek actors who were originally planning on joining the 2021 sailing and will all be on board in 2022. We can’t wait to see all of you again.”
The 2022 cruise will sail aboard Royal Caribbean’s luxurious Mariner of the Seas, a recently renovated ship that will be transformed into a Star Trek Universe at sea. Mariner of the Seas’ $120 million revitalization will also have guests soaring on the new Sky Pad virtual-reality bungee trampoline, riding the waves of the FlowRider surf simulator, reveling in the action at Playmakers Sports Bar & Arcade, as well as experiencing new dining options and upgraded accommodations.
