The cruise departs Miami at 4 p.m. on Friday, March 6, arriving at the private island of Grand Stirrup Cay on Saturday morning. That’s where competitors will tackle a three- to four-mile course lined with more than 15 obstacles, some making use of the island’s pristine sands. The next day will be devoted to relaxation and fun on the island. The ship returns to port at 7 a.m. Monday.
Children under age 18 stay free if traveling with at least two adults. Passengers of all ages must pay an additional $199 charge for port fees, taxes, and gratuities upon registration.
The Spartan Cruise
An army floats out on the high seas: thousands of Spartans, plus their leader, Joe De Sena, creator of The Spartan Race. They’ll be doing battle against a brief but challenging obstacle course in due time, but—unusually for the company’s events—plenty of relaxation is also on the agenda. Their destination is Great Stirrup Cay, a private 250-acre Bahamian island that’s been set up for beach yoga, fitness classes, a family barbecue, and, of course the signature obstacle race, where $50,000 in prize money waits at the finish line.
En route to and from the island, guests enjoy all the perks Norwegian Cruise Lines always offers. Dining comes with the boarding pass, with options including pizzas, buffets, and formal sit-down meals. The floating party also encompasses several bars and lounges, a casino, hot tubs, and places to hone your fitness skills before the big race, including a basketball court and jogging track. And like the original Spartan commanders, De Sena will schedule time to sign copies of his latest book.
Reebok Spartan Races
Extreme athletes banded together to design Reebok Spartan Races' intense courses orchestrated over standardized distances, each strewn with natural and man-made obstacles to test mind-body fitness, resilience, stamina, and strength, designed to leave participants exhausted and exhilarated. In waves of about 200, runners collect smudges and stains as they perform box jumps, haul heavy sandbags, and juke feral linebackers. Depending on where in the world they're participating, the course may be as short as 3 miles or, for extremely practiced athletes, as long as a full marathon.
