Our departure port of Miami has an amazing medley of cultures and flashy urban settings, which make it a scene to be seen. Before we set sail on Star Trek: The Cruise II and go where no man has gone before, there is much to explore with the trendy Art Deco district of South Beach, Calle Ocho in Little Havana, the super-upscale neighborhoods of Coconut Grove and Coral Gables. For the daring and fearless, take a trip on the unique ecosystem of the Everglades and the airboat adventure, where prehistoric creatures like alligators and crocodiles lurk along ‘The River Of Grass’… the perfect start before stepping aboard our own “Starship Enterprise.”
Like a postcard from ‘Risa,’ this beautiful and unspoiled paradise is a peaceful, eco-tourist's dream, just 30 miles off the coast of Honduras. Roatan, the largest of the Bay Islands, has virtually its entire coast fringed by diverse coral reef, teeming with marine life and home to some of the best pillar coral in the Caribbean. The pristine Honduran Reef is truly a mecca for divers and snorkelers. It is also a quiet haven for the beach aficionados, taking in all the beauty especially that of Tabyana Beach. For those explorers that want to discover more, the excursions available on the island have much to offer, with a highlight being the Gumbalimba Preserve & Animal Sanctuary, where unspoiled trails of flowers and butterflies give way to the shade of the tropical forest canopy. Take a walk on the scenic rope bridge crossing over the Gumbalimba Pond and witness the brilliant winged inhabitants of the Bird Sanctuary, where friendly parrots and macaws bring the colors of the Caribbean alive. This will be an intriguing place to land for all as our first port of call.
When our “Starship Enterprise” arrives exclusively on our very own “Pleasure Planet,” otherwise known to the rest of the universe as Norwegian Cruise Line’s brand new Private Port, Harvest Caye in Southern Belize (which is being described as the Caribbean's premier island destination), we spend an entire day where you can immerse yourself in natural beauty and culture on the 75-acre oasis! The port features an expansive pool with a swim-up bar, cascading waterfall and private canopy cabanas along with the Salt-water lagoon for water sports such as kayaking, paddle boarding and canoeing, as well as manatee observations led by tour guides. There’s also the Landshark Bar & Grill, a two-story indoor/outdoor restaurant with a scenic second deck in partnership with Jimmy Buffett. Experience The Flighthouse, a thrilling 130-foot high venue for aerial activities featuring 3,000 feet of zip lining across the island, free fall jumps and an observation deck with mainland views. You will not want to miss the large marina with food and bar area, offering guests a variety of exciting shore excursions and an expansive shopping village featuring popular name-brand retailers, as well as local Belizean craftsmen. Not to mention the exclusive 7-acre beach where you can snorkel the world's second largest barrier reef, plus much, much more. As we have this “Pleasure Planet” all to ourselves, we will create Star Trek-themed adventures and events right on the beach!
When you see the majestic expense of Puerto Costa Maya from aboard our “Starship Enterprise,” you know that you've arrived in a land of mystery and intrigue. This coastal paradise in the Yucatan features stunning beaches with soft sand and blue skies, but more importantly, Costa Maya offers an excellent opportunity to delve into the Mayan culture and enjoy the rich natural resources of the Mexican Caribbean. Planned with great attention to detail, Puerto Costa Maya resembles an ancient Mayan city where three grand pavilions host cultural and gourmet events. Here, local artisans create unique works of art and culture, and guests can learn to make their own souvenirs. Beyond the pavilions and their many offerings, Costa Maya provides access to the natural resources that make this region of the Caribbean so completely unique, offering a window into new and undeveloped areas of the coast. Clearly the highlight of this destination is Costa Maya, being the access point to the ancient Mayan Ruins rich with archaeological sites and undiscovered mysteries – the perfect stop on a Star Trek Voyage for an adventurous and inquisitive mind!
