Day 1 - Melbourne, Australia
We set sail at 4.00pm
A city with something for everyone, Gay Melbourne has rewards aplenty for those willing to do a bit of exploring. Between the glitzy bay-side skyscrapers and the kaleidoscope of neighbourhoods brimming with street art and busy cafes, there are always a huge number of things to do in Melbourne. Discovering the best of Melbourne requires venturing down a labyrinth of laneways to find hidden speakeasy-cocktail bars, world-class coffee roasters, avant-garde art galleries or pop-up performance venues.

Day 4 - Melbourne, Australia
Cruise home for disembarkation at 7.00am
Pack your glad rags, Rico, it’s time to go home. The city-fringe neighborhoods of South Yarra and Collingwood are a hotspot for gays, hipster and all things trendy – where it is common to see queer folk out in full force, snogging in bars or walking hand in hand down the street. While gay bars and saunas are largely centered in Collingwood, gay locals no longer feel the need to limit themselves to such venues and neither should you. Gay travelers in Melbourne will find exception acceptance in this modern and progressive city almost anywhere they venture.
