World's Largest Gay Cruise Sets Sail on Sunday
The two-month-old ship was chartered by Atlantis Events, which specializes in the gay and lesbian market. The sold-out weeklong sailing leaves from Ft. Lauderdale and will visit Nassau, Bahamas; St. Maarten; and St. Thomas.
"Our guest response to this first Allure of the Seas sailing was incredible, with the charter selling out in three weeks with no advertising whatsoever," says Atlantis' CEO Rich Campbell in a statement.
The ship also has the first shipboard production of "Chicago: The Musical." DreamWorks Animation characters, which are typically on the ship, will not be featured on the gay and lesbian sailing, according to an Atlantis spokeswoman.
Atlantis says it will be bringing an original lineup of gay and lesbian talent, including comedians, singers, cabaret stars and performance artists for its guests, as well as top DJs who will spin at theme parties.
If you missed the boat this time, there's always next year. The company has chartered the Allure of the Seas on the same itinerary in 2012. Reservations open on Feb. 23. The cruise will sail from Ft. Lauderdale on January 29, 2012.
