Nicko Cruises Vasco Da Gama

German speaking gay cruise Men. And Sea. Join Spartacus Gay Cruise 2022, the German-speaking All-Gay Cruise by the community for the community! We will sail from European gay mecca, Gran Canaria to the beautiful Madeira & Canary Islands . The Spartacus Cruise is initiated by the leading German gay magazines - Blu, Gab, Hinnerk, Rik and Leo and our partner are the biggest European gay men dating site PlanetRomeo.

With well over 20 degrees and eight hours of sunshine per day, you can leave winter behind and recharge your batteries. At the same time, the temperatures are pleasant for excursions. Guests can expect great show program on board, comediants and exclusive surprise performers.

 

Gay Canary Islands cruise

 

After several years of preparation the most famous gay magazines has joined forces to offer a cruise for the German-speaking world, which combines all the advantages: from not too big ship to the most beautiful islands and beaches of the Canaries. A hand-picked selection of the most popular artists of the gay/lesbian stage culture will be on board. Our partners are the most well known gay scene parties from Germany, Austria and the Switzerland and guarantee the finest Club feeling every evening.

 

Spartacus Gay Men Cruise

 

This all-gay cruise combines the lesser known islands of the Canaries with the flower island of Madeira. So that there is also space for explorations without time pressure, we have planned an overnight stay at several locations.

We are planning numerous highlights that can be found in the excursion program later. This includes Madeira's little sister, Porto Santo, where you can hike or taste fine wine.

 

Gay Madeira Cruise

 

Back in the Canary Islands we get to know Lanzarote's impressive volcanic landscape and, if possible, visit La Graciosa, the smallest of the Canary Islands. On Gomera, dense forests of ferns and moss-covered trees await us in the mists of the high-altitude Garajonay National Park. In addition to narrow cobblestone streets and houses with wooden balconies in the port city of Santa Cruz, La Palma also offers spectacular natural sights, such as the Waterfall of Colors or the Idafe Rock in the Caldera de Taburiente National Park.

If you don't want to extend your trip, you have the opportunity on the penultimate day to visit the dunes of Maspalomas on Gran Canaria. Two days at sea on board the Vasco da Gama create a real gay cruise atmosphere that we will spend with pool games, parties, t-dances & fun.

 

Vasco Da Gama Gay Cruise

 

Welcome Aboard the Vasco Da Gama.

In its own unique way, Vasco Da Gama combines the Portuguese explorer tradition with the demands of today’s cruise guests: a wide range of different bars and restaurants in an exclusive setting, lots of public space with a modern interior and tasteful design elements. On board, you'll find a full range of equipment for spa, fitness and your personal leisure activities. The personal atmosphere on board due to the manageable number of guests is key to the sense of well-being. In the very spirit of Portuguese hospitality, our friendly crew remains committed to your welfare.

 

Vasco Da Gama pool

 

In today's cruise ship market, our ship is regarded as small due to the fact that we have limited passenger capacity. The beautiful teak-wood decks exude classic charm, working in perfect harmony with the ship’s elegant and modern appearance. At 219 metres long and with a volume of 55,820 GRT, the ship provides its guests with all the space they need to thrive, spread across nine passenger decks.

On board, you'll feel this spaciousness, for example, in the cabins and suites (16 to 102 sqm in size), five bars and lounges in different designs, five restaurants, an elegant spa area with sauna and steam bath, a large fitness centre, sports areas on the outside decks as well as two pools, one of which has a sliding glass roof.

And in our “Hollywood's” show theatre over two decks, our on-board theatre company provides you with top-class evening entertainment. Bom espetáculo!

 

Vasco Da Maga Ocean bar

 

Total of 550 crew members have just one goal: to make you feel comfortable! On top of the generous room-to-passenger ratio and our range of on-board facilities, the ample crew-to-guest ratio means you can find your own personal way to relax on board the ship.

Whether you prefer to read a good book with a cool drink under the glass dome in our viewing lounge, the “Dome”, or would like to expend some of your energy in the outdoor sports areas, Vasco Da Gama has the full range of options to choose from. Our chefs are, of course, able to meet all common dietary requirements.

 

Spartacus gay cruise accommodation

 

Your home on the high seas: on board Vasco Da Gama, you will find exactly the right cabin for your cruise on the oceans. No matter which deck you are on or which category you choose – you will feel completely at home.

All our cabins are equipped with a wardrobe, a shower or bath, rest room, individually regulated air conditioning/heating, a safe and satellite TV. The beds can be separated into two singles if desired. Hairdryers are available in all cabins.

 

Spartacus Gay Cruise hostess Nina Queer

 

Our Cruise Hostess - Nina Queer

Already on our first cruise she was the mother of all pleasure-loving sailors. In the morning she greeted the hungover breakfast guests over the loudspeakers and remembered with relish all the misconduct and excesses of the previous night. During the day, she bribed the glamor quiz with her knowledge of the world of A, B and C stars.

In the afternoons she sorted the left and right people at the pool games or led drinking party excursions to wine tastings, although at night she still stood almost vertically behind the DJ booth. Known from television (Frauentausch, Central Comedy), radio (Energy) and for her books and parties, in 2022 she will ensure that discipline and order remain a foreign word and that every pot has a lid.

 

Spartacus Gay Cruise entertainment

 

Spartacus Gay Cruise Entertainment

In addition to the ship's on-board program, numerous gay favourite artists will once again perform on our Spartacus Cruise. The agenda also includes numerous themed parties by the pool such as “White”, “Wig” or “Kinky”, where there are no limits to the creativity of the outfits.

Our popular pool games with the choice of “Mr. Cruise ”will definitely not be missing and all guests are of course again cordially invited to design their doors individually, whereby the craziest idea will be awarded a prize.

 

Spartacus Gay Cruise - Joel von Lerber

 

Joel von Lerber, who will accompany us at the Tea Times with his harp program from classical to pop.

Edson Cordeiro can look back on an international career spanning over 25 years. In his native Brazil he is one of the most popular and famous performers. He has sung in the most important concert halls in Europe and has received several gold CDs.

With his first solo album “Nachtzug”, Rainer Bielfeldt took the heart of the gay community by storm in the early 1990s. For the border-crosser between chanson and pop, a game of hide-and-seek was never an option, and so he sang about men with a relaxed, self-evident nature when he meant men.

 

Spartacus Gay Cruise DJ Chris Bekker

 

DJ & producer Chris Bekker is one of the Berlin export hits of the electronic gay and straight scene worldwide. Since 2013 he has been working with music pioneer and producer legend Paul van Dyk, on whose label VANDIT Rec his publications appear.

Rony Golding - DJ and music producer from Cologne for over 20 years. With his driving, melodic techno sets, which are always peppered with vocals, he not only escalates the queer crowd across Europe. Golding is resident DJ of Germany's biggest gay party, the SEXY, as well as the Revolver Party in Berlin's Kitkat Club and has played at almost all major European gay events.

Canary Islands gay cruise map

 

 

Las Palmas, Gran Canaria gay cruise

Day 1 - Tuesday, February 08, 2022
Las Palmas, Gran Canaria
The tranquil harbour, verdant palm groves and excellent climate of gay friendly Gran Canaria's lively capital Las Palmas delighted Christopher Columbus when he discovered it on his famous voyage of 1492. Those same attractions now draw modern travellers keen to explore the atmospheric cobbled streets and leafy courtyards of its old quarter, Vegueta. Gran Canaria cruise also bring you close to Playa del Ingles, the liveliest and best-known gay beach resort in the Canaries. You can explore the stunning desert scenery of Maspalomas, or tour further afield to explore peaceful old towns like Arucas - famed for its lush banana plantations - and Teror, with its fine collection of traditional houses with intricately carved wooden balconies.

 

Madeira gay cruise

Days 2 & 3 - Wed & Thu, February 09 & 10, 2022
Funchal, Madeira
In Madeira it will become clear why this destination is known as the Garden Island - it is simply awash with colour from a breathtaking display of sub-tropical plants and flowers. So it is hardly surprising that large and colourful flower markets are one of the most arresting features of Funchal, Madeiras capital. Cruise visitors here will discover that the market town is easily walkable although, the further inland you explore, the steeper and narrower some of the streets become. Locally made wicker furniture, lacework and tapestries all make good buys along with the ubiquitous Madeira wine.

 

Spartacus gay cruise sea day

Day 4 - Friday, February 11, 2022
Fun Day at Sea!
Slow down. Relax. Maybe visit the gym. Lay in the sun. Dangle your feet in the pool, or enjoy one of the fun & entertainment activities. Meet new friends...and get ready for the T-Dance Party!

 

Lanzarote gay cruise

Days 5 & 6 - Sat & Sun, February 12 & 13, 2022
Arrecife, Lanzarote
Lanzarote is a treat for all the senses. From artistic wonders to natural beauties, the Lanzarote brims with culture, adventure and glorious sunshine. Enjoy a number of the most beautiful destinations…Fancy tucking into some mezze at a waterfront café? Or sunbathing on Lanzarote’s best beaches? The sky’s the limit on Lanzarote. There are countless cultural experiences to be had. Tear yourself away from your sunbed to explore the island's spectacular moon-like volcanic landscape, best seen from the Fire Mountain in the Timanfaya National Park and famous for the fantastical shapes created by solidified volcanic lava.

 

Canaries gay cruise sea day

Day 7 - Monday, February 14, 2022
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, party & have fun, until we arrive at the next amazing destination.

 

La Palma gay cruise

Day 8 - Tuesday, February 15, 2022
Santa Cruz, La Palma
Canary Island La Palma is called 'the fair isle because of its fabulous landscape and you will soon see why. Santa Cruz is one of the prettiest harbours among the islands and is easily explored on foot. Stroll along the Avenida Maritime promenade which will take you to the lovely old quarter around Plaza de Espana, Here you will find a 16th century fountain and town hall, a magnificent Renaissance church and a handicrafts market where you can pick up distinctive pottery and snack on local delicacies. Discover the island's most spectacular volcanic crater, Caldera de Taburiente, is crammed with rare animal and plant life and has been designated a national park.

 

Canary Islands gay cruise - La Gomera

Day 9 - Wednesday, February 16, 2022
San Sebastian, La Gomera
La Gomera, the second-smallest of the main islands in Spain’s Canary Island chain, is marked by craggy volcanic mountains crisscrossed with hiking trails. Lush laurisilva, deep ravines and abrupt cliffs, impressive rocks, valleys colonised by leafy palm groves, wild little beaches… Those are the landscapes of La Gomera, an orography so intricate that, at first sight, we immediately understand why ‘silbo’, an ancient, whistling form of communication, appeared and survived on this island.

 

Gay Maspalomas

Days 10 & 11 - Thu & Fri, February 17 & 18, 2022
Las Palmas, Gran Canaria
The island of Gran Canaria is one of the greatest gay tourist centres in Europe. Situated just a few hours away from the principal cities on the continent, it brings in travelers from a thousand different places. Travelers keen to enjoy temperatures ranging from 18 to 25 degrees, 12 months a year. Add to this the gay night life, another of the great attractions of Gran Canaria. In Playa del Ingles, at Maspalomas, or in the capital, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, an infinity of gay pubs and discos abound, so that we can squeeze the most of every moment out of the island’s bustling night life.
