Miami gay cruise

Day 1 - Miami, Florida
With perfect weather, beaches and a buzzing gay scene, Miami is one of the most desirable holiday destinations for gay travelers. Miami Beach is the place to be. You’ll see a lot of beautiful people, not least scantily clad gay men! Right by Miami Beach you’ll find many excellent bars and restaurants. There are many charming Art Deco buildings in Miami and historic hotels. It’s home to a big art scene, a thriving culinary scene and buzzing gay nightlife. Some of the best parties in Miami take place on the beach.


Gay cruise fun day

Day 2 - Fun Day at Sea!
Sit back, kick off your shoes and put your feet up during our 'at sea' days, where you can chill in the bar, lounge by the pool or enjoy a relaxing beauty treatment in the spa. For simple pleasures, why not try a game of table tennis? Or if you’re feeling energetic, now’s the chance to explore all the amazing activities the ship has to offer, from spectacular, West-End-style entertainment to adrenalin-charged sports.


Jamaica gay cruise

Day 3 - Falmouth, Jamaica
Nestled right between Montego Bay and Ocho Rios, Falmouth is the perfect backdrop for discovery in Jamaica during your cruise - but there’s lots to do right there. For a relaxing ride along the shoreline, hop on horseback in Chukkah Beach. Cruise to Falmouth and head to the Water Square and jam out with the locals to live reggae. Culture cravers can get their fix during high tea at the historical Good Hope Estate overlooking the Queen of Spain Valley. And a trip to Falmouth wouldn’t be complete without chowing down on fiery jerk chicken and rum cake, two local favorites.


Labadee gay cruise

Day 4 - Labadee, Haiti
Beachside meets mountainside on the shores of Labadee — a Royal Caribbean® private destination on Haiti’s northern coast. Here you’ll find pristine sands, coral reefs and jungle-covered hilltops nestling lagoon-like bays. There’s no shortage of places to relax and recharge across five stretches of beach. Or dial up the thrills on an active adventure like a half-mile-long zip line ride over the ocean. And fascinating culture, history and the natural beauty of Haiti’s spectacular coasts wait to be discovered around every corner. Escape to the Western Caribbean for a wilder way to experience paradise.


Explorer FlowRider

Day 5 - Fun Day at Sea!
Up for adventure? Put on your brave face and get ready to race through twists, turns and next-level thrills on the boldest slides at sea. The Perfect Storm waterslides take excitement off the charts. A luxurious sanctuary offering signature treatments, medi-spa services, and a full-service salon to make you glow from the inside out.


Gay Miami

Day 6 - Miami, Florida
Boasting one of the most iconic and established gay districts in the country, South Beach is a hub of gay community, culture and nightlife in its most glitzy and glamorous form. Miami is home to a wide and varied selection of gay clubs, bars, hotels and other venues that are guaranteed to pique the interests of any gay traveler. From drag shows and cabaret to gay superclubs, there’s something here for every gay traveler.
