Star Trek: The Cruise V Rescheduled For 2022

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.

I’ve never been on a cruise ship before. Hopefully by 2022, the world will be in a better place.

I would love to be on a Star Trek: The Cruise. Maybe my family will have enough money by then for spring break or summer travel. $1,600 per person is so expensive!

February 26-March 5, 2022 okay. Now I have to get that worked out on my schedule…

You can’t travel anywhere right now because of obvious reasons. The COVID virus pandemic is still raging and economic uncertainty. Plus countries have travel bans and borders are closed all over the place.

$ 1,600 per person is likely just the beginning of the expense, even at the lowest priced options.

But it really does sound like the kind of thing a family could enjoy together with young adult children and parents.

One of our kids is definitely intrigued by the promotions. The outcome was that they got to go to their first local comic con with me last year, and are looking forward to more when it’s possible. I hadn’t really thought of cons as something to look forward to sharing as our kids hit their teens, but it’s definitely one of the unexpected joys of parenting.

Unfortunately, in-person cons and cruises will be one of the last things to come back. I have respect for the organizers for making the decision now rather than waiting further.

Dude, that’s cheap, but you’re still better off to save your money.

I was on the Cruise IV earlier this year. It was my first Star Trek event and my first cruise (and I travelled alone).. As far as expenses go, all the on-ship Star Trek events (and it’s wall-to-wall packed with events… all of which are optional) were free. Like any other cruise, all the on-ship eating was free. you can conceivably not spend a penny on the cruise. What did cost money was the autographs and photos (so i guess that’s like any other event?) and anything happening off-ship at port.

I had such a great time, as a first time partipant and have rebooked for 2022

The cruise industry is getting crushed in this current health crisis. I’d not even consider a deposit until this time next year. I’d not be surprised if a couple of these companies cease operations in the next eight months or so.

Tourism industry is in jeopardy in this current health crisis. I wouldn’t travel until next Christmas at least. Some might go bankrupt and out of business.

But President Trump’s Warp Speed vaccine will be ready before 2021!

You got to be kidding!

But wait! Order your Warp Speed vaccine now, and we’ll double your order! Order in the next ten minutes, and we’ll give you this commerative Lysol inhaler for FREE!! Just pay seperate shipping and handling. {release of liability verbage here}

I’d think a cruise would be one of the last things I’d want to do, Trek or no Trek. Before Corona, what was it.. Hepatitis or some kind of gastrointestinal infection that passes around easily on cruise ships? Uh uh.
