Vette Cruise 2025

Welcome to Vette Cruise 2025!

We have built what has become a fun annual event, bringing Corvette owners from around the world together, on a modern marvel of ship building engineering, visiting gloriously warm Caribbean ports of call as a winter escape while most everyone’s Corvettes are stored for the winter!

We are planning multiple exclusive events for registered guests of Vette Cruise.  From fun the tongue-in-cheek “Mr. and Mrs. Corvette Owner” pageant, to special presentations from industry insiders, to private parties with members of Corvette Clubs from around the nation, not to mention all the on-board activities going on!

No.  Vette Cruise is a private series of credentialed events for our guests, put together by Horizon West Travel Planners.  We are going to great effort and expense to host this event.  While we appreciate you may have found a “deal”, or have a Sister who is an agent, this is simply our event and is how we make our living.

US Citizens are required to travel with either: an original US passport valid at least six (6) months after the cruise OR a valid state ID AND an original birth certificate. There is no exception to this policy. Non-US Citizens should contact Royal Caribbean Cruise Line for specific requirements.

It is highly recommended that you plan to arrive at least the evening prior to sailing.  We offer pre/post hotel accommodations as well as transfers, or you can arrange this on your own.  Flying the morning of a cruise is a good way of missing the cruise!

We recommend trip insurance, specifically in the first two weeks after booking so that pre-existing conditions are covered. 

Scenarios to consider…

  1. You are injured while on the trip.  Trip Insurance provides medical coverage, including air transport (ie helicopter).  Overseas your insurance will not cover you, and any form of air ambulance will run into the tens if not hundreds of thousands of dollars.
  2. Post final payment (where you start to lose money if you cancel) You have a medical event that prevents you from traveling.  If you obtained Trip Insurance within the first two weeks of booking, it will most likely be covered if it is deemed you had a pre-existing condition (say clogged arteries that led to a heart attack). If you booked outside this window it is less likely to be covered.
  3. You suffer an accident and lose a limb and you are post final payment, in 100% penalty period… (this happened for Vette Cruise 2024) Travel Insurance would cover you.  In this example, our guests would have lost almost $5,000 in addition to the trauma of the accident.  
  4. You decline insurance all together.  We cannot help.  We cannot call the cruise line and plead with them.  It is crystal clear in their policies, our policies, you will be out.  

Trip Insurance is relatively cheap, especially in group trips like ours.  You do not have to get trip insurance through us.  You do not have to get it period.  But please understand, after 17 years of doing this, and countless sad stories and people screaming at us on a call to help them, we cannot recommend enough, take the insurance.

Great Idea!  There is so much to see and do in Orlando, guests often plan to sneak in a trip to the parks ahead of time or after the cruise.  Travel time is roughly 3 hours. We can help arrange this as well.

Yes, there is parking, however Port Everglades is probably not the port I would leave my car at.  It is surface parking only nearby.  There is garage parking but not attached to the port and would require shuttle transport.

Currently, Celebrity is not requiring masking or vaccinations for cruise travel from the US to the Caribbean.  However, this can change at any time due to an outbreak or other Federal requirements.  It is advised you check the Celebrity notices and the CDC website for current information before you travel.
