Event description
Join the RFFC in Feb of 2022 as we depart on the beautiful Norwegian Encore from Miami, Florida for a running cruise vacation like no other!

About this event

This is your Run Package only description. Please contact our RFFC Team at info@runforfuncruise.com to inquire about additional cruise cabin pricing.

We set sail February 20-27, 2022 onboard the beautiful Norwegian Encore from gorgeous Miami, Florida for 8 days and 7 nights of running for fun under the sun! 

Once again, we are proud to be partnered with the Fort Lauderdale A1A Marathon! Come down to South Florida a little earlier and run either the 5K, 6K Susan Komen, the Half Marathon, or the Full Marathon before we bus you to Miami to get on the ship and start your running vacation! * NOTE: these events at the A1A are at your own cost however you will be provided with a discount*

There are run/race/events planned for the beautiful ports of St. Thomas USVI, Tortola BVI, Santo Domingo DR, and Norwegian's Private Island of Great Stirrup, as well as lots of on board events for you to enjoy. Included in your run package will be all our running related events on board and on shore. 

We also encourage you to become part of our "Runners Give Back" Program where for each port of call we visit, we find out what the needs are of that particular location and donate to that cause.

The Run For Fun Cruise Tours Family has donated over the years:

  • New and Used Runners to those less fortunate in Ocho Rios, Jamaica
  • Sporting equipment for the Youth Sports Academy in Cozumel, Mexico
  • Fem care and hygiene supplies for Hurricane survivors in Barbuda as well as St. Maarten
  • Medical supplies for local hospitals in Costa Maya, Mexico
  • Elementary school supplies in St. Lucia as well as Roatan, Honduras

Let our family take care of your family and create vacation memories that will last a lifetime! We welcome all levels of runners and walkers!  There will be something for everyone in your party. Norwegian Cruise Lines also caters to solo travellers with dedicated studio cabins that are AWESOME! Very popular choice for single travellers.

The RFFC team looks forward to welcoming you to sunny South Florida in February of 2022 when you ask yourself, "why run in the snow when you can run for fun in the sun?" Visit www.runforfuncruise.com for all the details and we'll see you on board!

Please be aware that this group is exclusive to Run For Fun Cruise Tours Inc. and must be reserved and booked through this agency.  No outside bookings are permitted. Also note that itinerary may change or cancel at any time.

Join us and enjoy your "runcation" with like minded people just like you!  Reminder:  This is your Run Package only description. Please contact our RFFC Team at info@runforfuncruise.com to inquire about additional cruise cabin pricing.

Thank You And See You On The Road

Your RFFC Crew




How can I contact the organizer with any questions?

You can contact us anytime by emailing knewton@runforfuncruise.com or by calling the office at 1-833-786-4386

Minimum amount of Run For Fun Cruise participants for event to occur.

In order for the Run For Fun Cruise events to take place, a minimum of 75 participants must be reached. Should this quota not be reached prior to Nov 1st, 2021, all members will be contacted and a refund of their cruise *refunded as to the original method paid per NCL guidelines* will occur from Norwegian Cruise Lines and the Run Package will be refunded by Run for Fun Cruise Tours to the passengers.

 What's the refund policy?

Please be advised that there are no full refunds on your Run Package-they will be deferred to another itinerary and later sailing date that you will be able to attend, unless one of the following conditions occurs within the time frames shown here.

If the Norwegian Encore ship does not sail as scheduled due to COVID restrictions, a portion of your run package may be refundable less the non refundable incurred costs for branded items already ordered or port of call events that are non-refundable past Nov 1st, 2021. Additionally, any shipping costs to allow for these branded items to reach you will be deducted from any refundable amounts.  

If you purchase your run package and then are not able to sail on the cruise due to CDC/ Canadian Government travel restrictions, a partial refund may occur less any non-refundable branded items and non refundable costs paid in advance to ports of call for the set running events, the refundable amount will be sent to you less shipping costs if the run package is purchased prior to Nov 1st, 2021 and requested to be refunded before Feb 20, 2022.

If you, yourself or your travelling party do not meet the set enforced health and safety requirements along with any necessary vaccine requirements and are unable to board the NCL Encore on Feb 20, 2022, your run package will become non refundable. Any Run Packages purchased after Nov 1st 2021 for new cruise bookings made after Nov 1st, 2021 will need to purchase the run package prior to your cruise payment and will then follow the above stated rules. Your cruise is refundable up to final payment; please ask Kim for more details. Please note as well that Norwegian Cruise Lines reserves the right to alter the itinerary at any time and should this occur your branded items may not reflect accurate information.

This is the Run Package; how do I book the cruise?

You can contact the office directly by calling toll free at 1-833-RUN4FUN and speaking with either Kim or Anne.  They can also be reached at knewton@runforfuncruise.com and amatwychuk@runforfuncruise.com.

How long are the runs?

We will have a mix of 5K-10K runs/races planned.  There will also be the possibility of trail runs as well based on popularity of previous itineraries. Please be advised that run itineraries may change due to factors such as weather, etc.

Is there a medal for each port?

No, there is a participation medal from the RFFC awarded to you at the awards ceremony.

Are there bag drops for each run?

We will work with our partners on each island to ensure your bags are well taken care of.

I'm a walker; am I going to feel out of place?

Absolutely not! The party is in the back with the walkers and we have a lot of them! We also have some of our events geared to having the walkers start the group off first which is fun!

Can I book online?

No. Our mantra has always been "Let Our Family Take Care Of Your Family" when we started the RFFC seven years ago.  It is our belief that in order to feel like you are a part of something special, we want to make you feel that way by having the "real world" interaction of speaking to you personally from the start of your reservation.  By the time you depart the ship at the end of the week, it is our goal to make you feel like "Family" and we have been very successful working like this.  

What about group dinners so we can get to know people better?

We have group dinners planned so that everyone can interact socially and get to know each other, these and all other on boar events may need to be socially distanced or cancelled as we must adhere to the NCL guidelines while on board.

Insurance Coverage- Medical insurance coverage per person will be required in order to participate. Coverage available for purchase is through Norwegian Cruise Lines and details can be found here https://www.ncl.com/ca/en/freestyle-cruise/booksafe. This insurance must be purchased prior to the final payment date of Nov 1st, 2021 for your cruise with NCL. This insurance coverage does not cover the Run Package. This is limited coverage and it is recommended that every passenger purchase enough coverage as they see fit to be covered adequately from additional sources. Run For Fun Cruise Tours Inc will not be held responsible for inadequate insurance coverage for any passenger. Failure to purchase medial insurance will prohibit you from participation in the Run For Fun Cruise.

Will there be shore excursions?

Yes, we will work on providing the group options for things to do after the run/race events are finished in the mornings for additional costs.

I'm a runner but the rest of my family does not run.  Will there be things for them to do?

Yes there will.  Family and friends are the cornerstone of the trip as they provide the most energy at the events. Information provided to the runners/walkers through continued email updates can be passed along to family and friends so they can "stay in the loop"  We welcome them to the events we have set up and will provide additional info.

This sounds awesome!  Is is better to wait to book for a better deal?

No. The group space we have blocked is based on a first come first serve basis.  Once particular categories are sold out, people are then moved to the next category at that available rate.  It is best to book the cruise early with a low refundable deposit, then register for your Run Package.  

I'm a member of a running club; can I promote to them?

Yes you can and we love the fact you want to spread the word of the RFFC!  Talk to Kim at knewton@runforfuncruise.com for more details on working with running clubs and Thank You!
