Star Trek cruise appoints William Shatner as official host

Posted on

Everett Collection

William Shatner is about to boldly go where no man has gone before…on the first ever Star Trek cruise. Captain Kirk is trading in the Enterprise for a new ship — the Norwegian Pearl, to be exact — in celebration of the franchise’s 50th anniversary.

The officially sanctioned cruise will set sail on January 9, 2017, out of Miami, and Shatner will be captaining the ship as the host. Those embarking on this voyage into deep space waters will be treated to performances, comedy shows, and concerts from Star Trek actors; Star Trek-related talks led by scientists and experts; and themed nightclubs, parties, and activities.

“I am excited to be the host of Star Trek: The Cruise,” Shatner said in a statement. “When I was told that this was the first authorized Star Trek cruise and part of the 50th anniversary celebration, I just knew that my participation would be something that our fans would enjoy. It should be a lot of fun.”

Joining Shatner as part of his crew will be Marina Sirtis (Deanna Troi), Jonathan Frakes (Captain William Riker), Robert Picardo (Dr. Lewis Zimmerman), James Darren (Vic Fontaine), Denise Crosby (Lieutenant Tasha Yar), and John de Lancie (Q).

Star Trek: The Cruise lasts for six days and six nights, departing from Miami and making stops in Cozumel, Mexico, and Nassau and Great Stirrup Cay in the Bahamas. Tickets run between $975 (for the lowest priced stateroom) and $7,500 (for the Haven Garden Villa Suite) per person. You can make your reservations online here.
