Last month the fifth official Star Trek Cruise returned to port, after a seven-day voyage.
Onboard to document the experience was a TrekMovie contributor and host of the Hungry Trilobyte podcast, Aaron Bossig who is a cruising regular.
More than a floating Trek convention
Star Trek: The Cruise V left out of Port Canaveral, FL on February 26, 2022. The event was set on Royal Caribbean’s Mariner of the Seas vessel, a Voyager-class cruise ship in service since 2003. The itinerary held three ports of call: Nassau, St. Thomas, and St. Maarten.
Unlike other times when the Mariner left Florida, this day all of its 1,600 cabins were filled with Star Trek fans. The staff was wearing Starfleet uniforms. The wall art had been changed to portray Starfleet captains. The elevators had been redressed to resemble turbolifts. Sailing toward the horizon, the ship’s sound system played Star Trek themes by Jay Chattaway and Jerry Goldsmith.
