This September, clubbing hits the high seas in style: Open Sea Cruises, in partnership with Axel Hotels, debuts with a totally new concept in LGBTQ voyages.
Fusing the best of luxury cruises and the European club scene, passengers can expect a gaycation like no other, voyaging across the Mediterranean for eight spectacular days.
Departing on the Pullmantur Zenith (720 cabins and 1,400 passengers) from Barcelona on September 29, the ship makes stops in Ajaccio, Toulon, Palamos, and Ibiza through October 6.
The luxury liner offers cooking workshops, yoga, meditation and an impressive roster of world-famous performers.
In a completely novel twist on the classic cruise, Open Seas is partnering with iconic European gay clubs to throw lavish onboard parties, events, and celebrations, which fit a variety of tastes and interests, rather than the one-size-fits-all theme of most cruises.
Take a dive into the current lineup of club partners setting up high-seas parties, then try to tell us you don’t want to book.
1. Gay Village in Rome
The notorious Italian festival combines theatre, concerts, film, and public speaking (seriously) with a huge dance party. Part arts and culture festival, part nightclub, Gay Village promises to be a celebration of all things queer, Italian-style.
2. GMF in Berlin
The thumping party showcases the biggest names in dance music with a mix of house, disco, hip-hop and electro music. Lose your shirt and get ready to work it–we all know Berlin boys know how to party with the best of them.
3. TANGA! in Barcelona
Cruisers who likes to dance, hang out or just share a laugh with new friends will find a home at Club NYX. Famous for its eclectic, fashionable mixed crowds, NYX brings indie pop, underground rock and a punk sensibility to the mix.
