Sep 20 - 29, 2018

From space launch facilities to ancient ruins. And a boat.

Step aboard the fancy-pants Carnival Magic and enter a world full of endless oceans, dazzling skies, and bountiful buffets. Paul Sutter and Fraser Cain are leading this 7-night cruise of the Caribbean, visiting Mayan ruins along the way and taking every chance we can to soak in the gorgeous stars above. Plus we'll start the trip off in style with an optional tour of the Kennedy Space Center. Score.


Here's the itinerary:

The Mayan ruin of Altun Ha is a) really old and b) really cool.

The cruise departs from Port Canaveral, Florida, and you know what that means...alligators! Yes, and the Kennedy Space Center! We've set up an optional two-night stay at the Best Western Cocoa Beach before the cruise departs. You have a few options here: you can park and stay at the hotel, you can fly into Orlando and the hotel will pick you up, and/or you can come to the Kennedy Space Center with us, where you'll touch a moon rock, talk to (but not touch) an astronaut, and check out (but not touch) the Space Shuttle Atlantis.

The rockets at the Kennedy Space Center are a) not very old but b) incredibly cool.
