Open Seas enlists RuPaul & the Vengaboys to make a whole new gay cruise adventure


This September, gay nightlife hits the high seas. That is, Open Sea Cruises debuts with a totally new concept in LGBTQ voyages.

Fusing the best of luxury cruises, European culture, and the club scene, Open Sea Cruises, in partnership with Axel Hotels, is raising the bar for the gaycation with a spectacular eight-day voyage across the Mediterranean.

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 a range of parties featuring partnerships with famous European clubs. But it’s the schedule of performers that really caught our eye.

Open Seas just announced their line up for this year’s trip, and it features some of the biggest names in entertainment.
