Gay New Orleans cruise

 

Cruises to New Orleans bring you to the heart of the city, where you’ll find a pulsating world of jazz, Mardi Gras, vibrant cuisine, glorious architecture, and joyous multiculturalism. There’s nowhere like New Orleans, which manages to combine ancient cobblestone streets lined by enchanting Creole cottages with foot-stomping music venues, world-class shopping, leafy parks, fascinating museums, and intriguing history.

 

New Orlean Gay Mardi Gras cruise

 

Shaped by cultures from Europe, West Africa, and the Caribbean, New Orleans exudes a sense of celebration, from the live music on every corner to the delicious street food in the French Market. There’s always something new to discover, taste, listen to, and learn about in this exciting, high-spirited city where the good times roll.

 

Celebrity New Orleans gay cruise

 

French Quarter
The bohemian 18th-century French Quarter is the city’s cultural hub, which is rich in history, architecture, and music. Explore the jazz bars of Bourbon Street, and stroll streets lined by colorful 18th and early 19th-century houses adorned with filigree cast-iron balconies. Visit St. Louis Cathedral, the oldest cathedral in the United States, and watch street performers in Jackson Square. Head for the fabulous French Market for more music, gourmet treats, and art.

 

New Orleans gay cruise

 

The Garden District
Easily reached on the historic St. Charles Avenue Streetcar, this upscale neighborhood displays another face of the architecture of the Deep South. Here, you’ll find historic homes and grand, sometimes charmingly faded mansions built by some of the city’s famous residents. Ancient oak trees festooned by Spanish moss curve dramatically over the sidewalks, adding to the leafy atmosphere. While you’re here, explore Magazine Street, lined with top-notch boutiques, bars, and restaurants.

 

Celebrity New Orleans cruise

 

World-Class Museums
New Orleans is packed with superb museums and galleries. The National WWII Museum vividly tells the story of war, while the Contemporary Arts Center offers rotating exhibits of painting, sculpture, film, and photography. Mardi Gras World isn’t a museum, as such, but provides a fascinating insight into the work behind those dazzling Mardi Gras floats. Sazerac House, with its own distillery, takes you through the history of the city’s cocktail culture.

Tampa, Florida gay cruise

Day 1 - Tampa, Florida
Tampa Bay is a lively port city located off of the beautiful Gulf Coast of Central Florida. Home to two large universities, a vibrant sports scene, and award-winning beaches, our cruises from Tampa take you to the Caribbean and beyond. This underrated city offers all kinds of diversions for your entire group, from world-class museums to natural wonders and water-based adventures.

 

Gay cruise sea day

Day 2 - Fun Day at Sea!
While at sea, take the time to recharge before the next adventure. Lounge by the pool, be spoiled at the spa, taste the delicacies or explore the venues on-board, until we arrive at the next amazing destination.

 

New Orleans cruise

Day 3 - New Orleans, Louisiana
It’s easy to get lost in the magic of New Orleans. With its stately Creole-style architecture, world-class food scene, and impromptu parades, this loud, colorful city makes for a great start to any adventure. If you cruise from New Orleans, you should definitely plan to spend a few days exploring the city’s French Quarter, famous for its nightlife, jazz clubs, street performers and iconic balconied buildings.

 

Gay New Orleans

Day 4 - New Orleans, Louisiana
New Orleans has one of the best gay scenes in the South. It’s one of America’s most liberal cities, not to mention one of the most hedonistic. New Orleans has long been associated with decadence. From Mardi Gras to Anne Rice’s vampire novels, it’s a place of excess. You just have to visit Bourbon Street during Mardi Gras! Drinking on the street is legal in New Orleans, unlike most American cities.

 

New Orleans Mardi Gras gay trip

Day 5 - New Orleans, Louisiana
Make sure to try some of New Orleans’s famous sweet beignets and chicory café au lait at some point during your visit, but save room for heartier fare — New Orleans is known around the world for its cooking, and you’re going to want to dig in to steaming bowls of jambalaya, crispy po-boys and savory muffalettas. If you visit New Orleans, you should also pencil in a ghost tour — the city is famous for its haunted history, and local tour guides do a great job bringing all the hair-raising details to life.

 

Caribbean gay cruise sea day

Day 6 - A Fun Day at Sea!
While at sea, take the time to recharge before the next adventure. Lounge by the pool, be spoiled at the spa, taste the delicacies or explore the venues on-board, until we arrive at the next amazing destination.

 

Yucatan gay cruise

Day 7 - Yucatan (Progreso), Mexico
The enchanting port of Progreso is nestled in Mexico's Yucatán Peninsula, where a world of adventure and culture awaits. Embark on a journey through time as you explore Chichen Itza, one of the world’s seven wonders or unwind on the beautiful beaches and savor the delicious flavors of Yucatecan cuisine. Experience the local vibe by shopping for unique treasures as you take a stroll along the Malecón, where the vibrant energy of Progreso comes alive with live music and breathtaking harbor views. Beyond the shore, exciting experiences await, from snorkeling in vibrant waters to kayaking through tranquil lagoons. Let Progreso be your gateway to an unforgettable Yucatecan adventure.

Gay Tampa

Day 9 - Tampa, Florida
Tampa checks all the boxes for cool city break status, with expansive strollable neighbourhoods, fascinating museums, a varied and multicultural culinary scene and a number of independent and trendy bars. Tampa is becoming an increasingly stylish gay travel destination, and whilst the city is not as liberal as Orlando or Miami, it’s still an incredibly gay-friendly destination.
The gay scene in Tampa can largely be found around the historic “Ybor city”. In the district, gay travelers will find a plethora of gay bars and clubs, many of which host regular drag shows, cabaret performances and themed nights.
