Florida and the 'Majesty of the Seas'

According to Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd., the Majesty of the Seas is a Sovereign-class cruise ship. According to Star Trek canon, the USS Enterprise (NCC-1701-E) is a Sovereign-class starship in service to the United Federation of Planets. While Captain Picard's vessel is unlikely to take you to Cuba, Captain Daniel's will.

- Havana.

Before and after you get there, though, you have to travel through Florida.

Captain Daniel's record against and views on 'The Borg' are unknown at this time.

- Fort Lauderdale Brightline Station.

Virgin Trains USA, formerly Brightline, is an express rail line that runs from Miami to West Palm Beach with a stop in Fort Lauderdale (with future extensions planned for Orlando, Tampa, and elsewhere). It's been open for about a year and runs frequently while being incredibly easy to navigate. Such a novel concept would seem to make sense for Ohio to connect cities such as Cincinnati, Columbus, and Cleveland.


- Fort Lauderdale Brightline Station.

- Fort Lauderdale to West Palm Beach (we were two of few riders on coach 4 after coaches 1-3 filled up). 

- Majesty of the Seas docked in Fort Lauderdale.

- En route to Havana via Key West.

- It was warm.

- Ernest Hemingway Home, Key West, Florida.

- Southernmost point of the continental United States, Key West, Florida.

- Cat at the Hemingway Home and Museum, Key West, Florida.

- Key West.

- Key West.

- You're allowed to bring up to two 750ml bottles of wine on board with you. I do not recommend this one.

- The MS Majesty of the Seas first sailed in 1994.

- Chocolate cake spill (not from us).

- Boogie. Wonderland.

- When all else fails: "reroute power through the main deflector dish."

Cuba. When I get a chance.
