FAQ – Preparations for the trip

Suggested Attire
Aboard the Mekong Navigator, attire is casual and comfortable during the day, with resort-style clothing, and comfortable, but sturdy, footwear for excursions. Evening wear consists of open-neck shirts, trousers, skirt, or similar attire. Footwear is always required in all public areas, and when navigating stairs on board.

Onboard Account & Currency
The official currency of Vietnam is the Vietnamese dong. It is advisable to exchange at least a small amount of money into Vietnamese dong on arrival, especially for purchasing items from small, local merchants and restaurants, and for taxis, which typically do not accept other currencies. Some large merchants and restaurants will accept US dollars. ATMs in Vietnam only provide Vietnamese dong. The official currency of Cambodia is the Cambodian riel. However, most monetary transactions, including withdrawing cash from ATMs and banks may be in US dollars. Should you be due change in an amount less than US $1, you will be given riel; otherwise, US dollars are given.

Visa and MasterCard are widely accepted in both countries by many merchants. You may find, however, that some are reluctant to take credit cards for small purchases because of the fees associated with the transaction. Therefore, we suggest that you carry some cash, whether local currency or US dollars. Aside from the international hotel chains, American Express is not widely accepted in this part of the world.

You may exchange currency at banks, currency exchanges, or hotels, all with very similar rates. Please note that both currency exchanges and ATMs charge fees. You are advised to inquire as to the currency exchange fee before making the exchange; ATMs will require you to accept the charge before proceeding to dispense cash.

The official currency on board the Mekong Navigator is the US dollar. During the cruise, we operate on a cashless system, with all purchases billed to your onboard account. At the end of the cruise, bills may be settled in cash with US dollars or by credit card with Visa, MasterCard or American Express. The Mekong Navigator does not provide a currency exchange service, nor is there an ATM on board. It is advisable to bring crisp, new, undamaged bills, as tears and obvious wear may cause banks and local businesses to refuse them. In Phnom Penh, about halfway through the cruise, you will find multiple options for obtaining US dollars at both Cambodian and international banks, ATMs, and wire services. ATMs are widely available in Vietnam, as well, but will only provide Vietnamese dong.

Dietary Requirements
Our culinary team will make every effort to accommodate special dietary requests. Please inform our office at least 60 days prior to departure of these requests.

Electricity
The voltage in both Vietnam and Cambodia is officially 220/50Hz. To use any electrical product from the US that is not dual voltage, you will need an electrical converter. The Mekong Navigator has multi-configuration outlets, which accommodate most Western plugs. We recommend bringing an adapter for use in the hotels. Because the voltage may fluctuate at times, we also recommend unplugging your devices when not in use or when leaving them unattended.

Insect Precautions
While you can expect to encounter insects during your trip, most are relatively harmless. Switching off lights when exiting your room or suite, and ensuring that glass or screen doors or windows are closed at all times will minimize the number of insects allowed into your room. On the fast-moving river, mosquitoes are rarely seen while sailing. If planning to be outside in the early morning or evening hours, applying an insect repellent to exposed skin is recommended.

Shore Excursions
Excursions are led by expert guides, and guests are divided into groups. Electronic listening devices are complimentary to all guests in order to ensure that guests are able to hear their guides, without disturbing nearby wildlife.

Smoking
The comfort and safety of our guests is our first priority. Smoking is not permitted in the suites or enclosed, public areas on board. There is a designated smoking area on the Sun Deck.

Visitors on Board/Security
Only guests who possess tickets for passage are allowed on board. Security services are provided on board to ensure everyone’s safety throughout the journey.

Gratuities
Gratuities are customary expressions of appreciation for a job well done. It is our goal to ensure that the service you receive is as wonderful as the sites you visit. Gratuities for the included portions of this program have been pre-paid. At your own discretion you may choose to provide additional tips.

Water
Please do not drink the tap water while on board or on shore, or use it for brushing your teeth. The ship’s water supply comes from the river after passing through a sterilization process. This water is suitable for showers and baths, but should not be consumed. Complimentary bottled water for drinking and brushing teeth is provided on board, as well as during excursions. Ice on board the ship is also made from bottled water.

Etiquette
Many of the local customs in Vietnam and Cambodia differ greatly from Western culture. In many temples, and on the grounds of the National Palace in Phnom Penh, it is required that all guests cover their knees and shoulders when entering the grounds. Shoes will need to be removed when entering some buildings. Our itinerary takes us into areas where locals are simply living their daily lives. Should you wish to take a photo of locals, please request their permission first (simply pointing to your camera and allowing them to nod is sufficient). Monks wearing saffron robes will be encountered in numerous places in Cambodia.

Gay Life Croatia Info

In smaller towns and tourist resorts, generally speaking, LGBT people meet in bars, clubs and c afés which are known to be gathering LGBT people and which are gay-friendly but do not specifically count as being gay. There are a lot of such places throughout Croatia and the atmosphere in many of them, not all, is relaxed and open-minded towards homosexuals.

If you are spending your vacation in a seaside resort you will have the best chance to meet LGBT people by visiting the gay beaches – and there are a lot of them along the amazing Adriatic coast. However, do not expect them to be too crowdie. In public places LGBT persons tend to act «straight» and therefore hard to «detect» while they’re much more relaxed at the gay beaches. It is usually very easy to make contact with people in Croatia and when you get a Croatian friend you’ll have a friend for life.

Many say that Croatia is a Mediterranean naturist paradise and judging by the number of nude beaches along the Croatian Adriatic coast this may well be the truth. Naked sunbathers are welcomed since the beginning of the last century when naturists were allowed only on a few especially designated areas. Today, except on official nudist beaches marked as “FKK”, nudity is often tolerated on many other so called «wild beaches».

Exclusively gay Adriatic Croatia cruise

Many say Croatia is the hottest new European destination. Well, hot, it certainly is, but new? Hardly. Croatia is as old as the hills, drawing Europeans who appreciate its beauty, beaches, history, culture and affordability. In the past few years more and more Americans, Aussies and tourists from other continents are discovering Croatia as well.

A place like Croatia offers a lot for everyone. Roman ruins and medieval villages are ubiquitous. The country’s long rugged island-dotted coastline covers practically the entire eastern seaboard of the Adriatic, and there’s no shortage of ancient towns encircled by picturesque crumbling walls. Vineyards, olive groves and beaches complete a montage of landscapes right out of central casting.

Exclusively gay Adriatic Croatia cruise

Split

Split is the largest Croatian coastal city (187,599 inhabitants, 2001) and represents the ideal launching point for any Dalmatian island-hopping. Its traffic-free streets are a living treasure house, and allow you to walk though history without barriers or museum curators.

Exclusively Gay Croatia Cruise from Split The Roman Palace is where students promenade under floodlights at night, sitting in cafes sipping cappuccinos. The site was first settled when, at the end of the third century AD, the Roman Emperor Diocletian built his palace here. The importance of Diocletian’s Palace far transcends local significance because of its level of preservation and the buildings of succeeding historical periods built within its walls, which today form the very heart of old Split. Diocletian’s Palace is listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site.

Gay Disco:
Metropolis is known as the unofficial gay club among male homosexuals, lesbians and bisexuals in Split. The attitude in the club is macho and you will need a «gaydar» or a local gossip columnist with you to detect any gay people here as they act very discreet. Mostly younger LGBT visitors/clientele (14-30 y.o.)

Gay Bars:
Getto Club, Dosud 6, Club in the old palace owned by wonderful lesbian couple Klub Svjetskih Putnika, Gay-welcomed cafe-bar behind The National Theatre, north of Diocletian’s Palace in centre of Split. Gay and Lesbian mixed crowd. Medium popular.

Bula- Club in the old palace Porta- Club in the old palace Semafor The cafe-bar opposite the main Post Office (HP)

Gay Beaches:
Gay Nude Beach Croatia Duilovo gay nude beach This is the most active and popular gay beach near Split. The meeting spot can be found on the hills above the rocky strip of land between hotel Zagreb and Stobrec village. There is rocky beach with pine trees above the shore. Woods are, obviously, very cruisy. Almost everybody is gay here. To get there take the bus number 15 from the city. If you have a car, drive into Stobrec and park near the school and walk down to the beach. Very popular/active

Marjan beach The Marjan hill (178m high), lies on the west side of the city. Today it is a park forest. This is a large peninsula poking out into the Adriatic to the west of the city center. The park is a great place to bike around (you can rent bikes near the entrance for a few kuna), walk the wooded trails, or dip your toes into the sea along the shoreline. It’s a popular weekend spot for Split residents.

Gay men often visit beautiful beach just before Institute of Oceanography (Institut za oceanografiju). It is a rocky and hilly area and it is not exclusively gay and in fact very mixed. We recommend you to be discreet. To get there take the bus no. 12 from the church of St. Francis in the center, near hotel Bellevue. Take off at Institute and walk down to the beach by steep path.

Exclusively gay Croatia cruise

Dubrovnik

Dubrovnik is one of the most beautiful cities on the Croatian coast. In the middle ages the Republic of Dubrovnik was an important rival of Venice. Many buildings in the old city center testify of this glorious past and to its Venetian influence.

The walls of Dubrovnik girdle a perfectly preserved complex of public and private, sacral and secular buildings representing all periods of the city’s history, beginning with its founding in the 7th century. Particular mention should be made of the city’s main street, Stradun, the Prince’s Palace, the church of St Vlaho, the Cathedral, three large monasteries, the Custom’s Office and the City Hall.

Exclusively gay Croatia Cruise from Dubrovnik The Republic of Dubrovnik was the centre of a separate Croatian political and territorial entity, and was proud of its culture, its achievements in commerce and especially of its freedom, preserved down so many tempestuous centuries.

Considered the gateway to the Adriatic Sea and consistently ranked among the most beautiful cities in Europe, Dubrovnik has been nicknames the «Pearl of the Adriatic» and ha been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1979. During the Middle Ages it rivaled Venice for the shear amount of maritime trade in and out of its ports. Now home to glistening beaches and an old medieval city complete with gates, walls, and a castle, the city combines old-world charm, modern luxury, and brilliant beaches while maintaining its small-town, remote feel. No stranger to parties, Dubrovnik also hosts a Summer Festival that is the largest in the region.

Dubrovnik Gay Scene
Gay friendly Trubadour Cafe Dubrovnik Dubrovnik is also very popular gay and lesbian destination. Actually there are not gay discos and gay scene is reduced to the very popular and well-visited Lokrum Beach on the Lokrum island. In the town gays and lesbians meet each other in only one gay cafe – Troubadur.

Troubadour Hard Jazz Cafe is on the square on the eastern end of the Old Town. Described as a «hard jazz cafe,» this bar has a great collection of jazz that it plays when jazz musicians aren’t on stage during the summer. A great place to hang out. No cover charge. Café Troubadour has wonderful terrace and the live soft jazz which gives those balmy nights a perfect sense of artistic completeness.

Dubrovnik Gay Beaches:
Lokrum Gay Beach DubrovnikLokrum Beach The nudist rocky beach at Lokrum Island is outside of Dubrovnik. It is the most popular meeting place for gay guys in Dubrovnik. Take the boat from the harbor of Dubrovnik to Lokrum Island which is leaving every 30 minutes till 8pm. Travel time is about 10 minutes. The gay beach is on the end of nudist area. From the harbor at Lokrum there is a 5-10 minutes walk to the nudist beach. Just follow the road to the left after debarking the vessel. There are clear signs showing you the way. After a slight climbing of the road you’re entering the nudist area. The nudist part (the left part of the island) is very large and quiet (even in August!), and the water is wonderful…large rocks and easy access to the sea. The gay area is, as always, at the end of the rocks, just before a wonderful water canyon with unbelievable water colours. This is one of the most known gay nude beaches in Croatia and woods above the beach can be «cruisy». A small paradise!

Croatia gay nudist beachBabin Kuk Located on the Babin Kuk part of the town. Walk down the path next to the hotel President. When you reach the stairs turn toward steep rocks. This is where gay men come to enjoy sun and sea… Head from the town on the number 4 bus line. The gay beach is between the end of the no. 4 bus line (a big hotel President) and Copacabana Beach. If you are walking from the bus stop to Copacabana, the gay area is before reaching Copacabana. There is really no beach, just rocks and boulders! Pretty spot, though!

Korcula Island

Korcula, birthplace of Marco Polo (1254), is, after Lokrum and Mljet, the third most densely wooded island of Croatia.

Gay Croatia - Korcula There is much evidence of a highly-developed social life on Korcula even in the 13th century. The Statute of Korcula, signed in 1214, prohibited the slave trade for the first time in Europe. It also spoke about the order and management of the city. Korcula makes an excellent base for day trips to places like Mljet and other islands of the Elafiti group (southeast of Korcula Island). Korcula is also famous for its traditional dance Moreska that has been performed for more than four centuries

Gay Beaches:
Gay Croatia - Przina Nudist Beach Przina beach (Town of Lumbarda) Two the most beautiful, Bili Zal and Przina, are located near the seaside town of Lumbarda, 6 kilometers east of Korcula town. Przina is a longer beach and in the summer it gets early

filled with tourists and locals. Small restaurant is offering cold drinks and snacks. If you’re looking for some skinny dipping, just follow the road straight ahead after sandy beaches and turn left when you get to the pine forest – Soon you will reach a nudist area.

Gay Croatia - Proizd Beach, KorculaProizd Beach (Town of Vela Luka) Naturist beach located near town of Vela Luka, on the small islet of Proizd, also called «the island of love». The city and port of Vela Luka in the western part of the island is an area less frequented by mass tourism and situated in a protected bay closed in by the islets of Osijak, Kamenijak, Gubesa and Proizd. Islet of Proizd, immediately outside the bay of Vela Luka, is an oasis of untouched nature – crystal clear sea, rocks, white pebbles, naturist beaches and lush vegetation are its main attractions.

Gay Croatia - Vaja Beach, KorculaVaja Beach (Town of Racisce) Beach Vaja near village of Racisce – Beach Vaja is a small not official naturist beach with white pebbles and azure sea water. It is a picturesque and romantic place, isolated and rarely visited. It is located about 1km north of Racišce. One can reach it by tarmac road that leads from the far end of the Racišce harbour. Walking up the hill and taking the path down the cliff to the beach is the way to come to this beauty spot.

Hvar Island

Exclusively Gay Croatia Cruise - HvarHvar Island with its flower-filled gardens, its palms, its orange and lemon groves, its fragrance of rosemary, its enchanting countryside affording glimpses of a deep blues see, is an island of captivating charm. Hvar Island, the «Croatian Mykonos», is one of the most popular «gay-islands» in Croatia. The main town on the island, Hvar Town is a very popular LGBT resort and the popularity of the town is increasing for each year.

Fabulous Hvar Town, which is a small and charming medieval town situated in the southwest of Hvar Island, is attracting young good-looking gay/lesbian charter-tourists and bag packers as well as the international Jet Set and globetrotters from all around the world.

Exclusively Gay Croatia Cruise - HvarThere are no LGBT organisations, official LGBT bars or clubs in Hvar Town where LGBT people meet. However, the town has a very lively nightlife when the tourist-season is in full swing and gays and lesbians meet each other in the hip bars at the harbour. Hvar Town is chic, youthful, vibrant and fun. It is easy to fall in love with Hvar Town and many gays and lesbians return from a year to another. There are great opportunities to make new friends at the Saint Jerolim Beach in summer and if you have been to the gay beach you will recognise people later on in the evening when strolling around in the town centre.

Exclusively Gay Croatia Cruise - HvarHvar is the fourth largest island at 300 sq. km [182 sq. m.]. It is the sunniest island in the Adriatic with almost 2,800 hours of sunshine per year. However, there is enough rain to keep the island green and to maintain the beautiful fields of lavender, rosemary, sage, marjoram and thyme and carefully cultivated vineyards. Many people remark that in the spring Hvar smells like an herbalist shop. When in Hvar, you must purchase some lavender oil, which is the major export of the island. The hoteliers on the island pride themselves with the consistently good weather – if there is more than four hours of rain per day, they give a reduction on your stay and if snow falls [which happens once a year, on average] your stay is free!

CarpeDiem Bar This lounge bar is located on the harbour. A famous posh bar for beautiful and fashionable people – being at the top of the list of the most popular bars among gay men. Amazing are afterbeach parties.

Hvar Gay Beaches:
Jerolim Islet gay beach HvarJerolim Islet Beach Jerolim is an islet, part of Pakleni archipelago, directly opposite Hvar town – one of the hottest summer destinations in Croatia. There is a popular official naturist beach visited also by many gays. To get there take one of many taxi boats leaving Hvar harbor. They are departing every half an hour starting 9am, and returning in the same intervals with the last one at 7pm. When you get to the jetty turn right and walk some 100m along the shore until you reach the area with mostly gay couples, singles, lesbian couples and bisexuals. The gay area is about 300m long all along the east side of the island, and it is one of the busiest gay beaches in Croatia.The busiest time is August when Hvar is packed with mostly Italian tourists.

Croatia gay nudist beachVrboska Beach can be found in the Bay of Vrboska, after the nudist camp outside Vrboska Village, which is situated not far from Jelsa in the northern part of Hvar Island. The beach is not as popular as the Jerolim Beach outside Hvar Town, but then, if you are staying in Vrboska or Jelsa this is a closer choice. To get to the beach turn left out to the peninsula Glavica after passing the campingsite.

Jelsa nude beach HvarIza Ige Beach (Town of Jelsa) Behind the last pier with the light house (red one) there is a nudist beach where you can meet gay people. The beach is located between Jelsa’s main city port and Mina bay, on Gradina peninsula. The beach is on the small peninsula with the cemetery and a camping area. All around the peninsula there is a nice walking path from which one can go in a pine forest that is covering all peninsula and which can be cruisy. The beach is not just for nudists. It is mixed and there are lot of people that just take a walk around peninsula looking for adventure (it is usually after swimming time around 6-7 PM). Beach is close to the center of Jelsa.

Exclusively gay Croatia cruise

Island of Mljet

Mljet is an eight largest island of the Adriatic sea and one of the most indented. It is situated near wondrous city of Dubrovnik and it has been inhabited since ancient Greek times. More then 70 % of surface of the island is covered by forest and that is why Mljet is also called «the green island». Because of particularly attractive landscapes of the western part of Mljet that area (about 1/3 of the whole area) was declared a National park in 1960.

Exclusively Gay Croatia Cruise - Blace Beach, MljetBlace Beach naturist beach Blace beach is located in the most beautiful sandy bay at the very southeastern end of the island. It takes a twenty minutes of walk to get there from a small village called Saplunara. Beach is nearly 1 km long, surrounded by coronet of centenary pines and presents a shining example of primordial intact nature. This is not an official naturist beach and it is used by both naturists and textiles.

There aren’t any official naturist beaches on the island of Mljet and none of the beaches is marked as one. But the island offers hundreds of lovely, little pebble stone coves and bays, many of them reachable only by boat, where you can be undisturbed and enjoy total privacy for a day.

Exclusively gay Croatia cruise

Good to Know Before Visiting Croatia

No official gay beaches! There are many naturist beaches and campsites and also many «wild» or not official nudist beaches on Adriatic coast (plus coasts of the rivers or lakess in some cities). Keep in mind that unfortunately there are no strictly gay official naturist beach (like gay naturist resort for example) in any country, there are only unofficial or official nudist beaches that are visited by gays only, with majority or minority of gay visitors.

Kissing on the street not recommended! Kissing and hugging in open public places streets, public transportation and shops, malls, restaurants, cinemas, theatres… is not recommened even if it is allowed by the law in many counties. We strongly suggest relaxed behaviour only in strictly gay clubs and bars (marked with «gay & lesbian», «men only», «more lesbian»…).

Precautions when visiting cruising areas! Visiting places like city parks, cruising areas, bushes, forests, promenades, public toilets and such is at your own risk. These listed spots are not official gay places and most of them could be risky even if they seem open and tolerant.

Gay Mykonos

Gay Mykonos

Welcome to Gay Mykonos
Welcome to Gay Mykonos Mykonos has always been a popular destination for gay travellers ever since the island’s glamorous jet set days of the 60’s. It’s never been cheap, but then its air of exclusivity, sophistication and magic would never have existed if it had been invaded by the package holiday Sangria crowds that most of us prefer to avoid!
The Greek island’s reputation as a gay haunt goes back decades when the place offered a liberal respite from Britain’s less than emancipated views of homosexuality in the 60’s and 70’s. Gay folks still flock to the tiny white paradise and, despite the influx of international pleasure seekers, it remains unspoilt and friendly.
The island of Mykonos is famous for its cosmopolitan atmosphere, its exciting nightlife, its picturesque Cycladic capital and its lively sandy beaches. You’ll find some great beaches and bays, many of which are clothing optional.

The Gay Scene in Mykonos
Mykonos gay sceneThis is not Ibiza. There are no big gay venues and no all-night rave parties. Mykonos is a place for unwinding and relaxing. The scene is petite and stylish.
The island has six gay bars and clubs, which are concentrated in three locations near the old harbour front, where the small fishing boats are moored.
Despite Mykonos having become a euphemism for ‘gay paradise’, it’s also popular with the straights. Thankfully they tend to be a more avuncular and sophisticated crowd than your average Chav from Dagenham.
The island has been used to the pink pound for decades, but the gay scene is not at all ghettoised and you’ll probably feel just as comfortable in the many mixed bars as the more obvious gay ones. As the place isn’t a main family hot spot you’ll find that the straights are basically just like you; out for a good time, wanting to relax, have fun and do it all irrespective of sexuality.
More…

The Gay Beaches in Mykonos
Gay beach MykonosThere are three main beaches, each with gay and nude sections: Paradise, Super Paradise and Elia. Tucked into small coves and protected by rocky headlands, these crescent-shaped strips of sand are lined with trees and dotted with thatched sunshades. Small bars and restaurants overlook the turquoise-coloured sea. From early evening onwards, the bars turn up the volume and become open-air dance clubs, packed with partygoers nearly all night long.
Buses go direct from the town to Elia and Paradise, via narrow, winding roads over rocky hills. Super Paradise is accessible only by fishing boat (from either Paradise or Platys Yialos). Alternatively, you can hire a jeep from around £26 a day or a motor scooter from about £8.
For hyperactive party animals, an exhilarating alternative to the beach is Water Mania, a fabulous water theme park near Elia, with giant water slides, shutes and spirals – some up to 244 metres long.

Travel Around Gay Mykonos
Mykonos gay excursions Mykonos has a wonderfully rich and variegated past, a marvelous history, and an honored place in Greek mythology. There are always surprises to be found here!
The light of Apollo is evident everywhere on the island, and art, beauty, and form are all visible in the simplicity and eloquence of dazzling white structures and a centuries-old labyrinth of tiny streets and alleyways. The light is further enhanced by the reflection of aqua jewelled and crystal clean waters. All of this, combined with outstanding accommodation, a shopping paradise, excellent cuisine, and marvelous entertainment settings, proves again and again, that Mykonos is the quintessential island paradise of the Aegean Sea.

A Private island, a day-club floating over the reef, and a club rising out of the pristine lagoon: TropOut New Caledonia 2017 parties and venues…

Duck Island

TropOut gay party on Duck IslandA short 5 minute journey by speed boat from Chateau Royal, the private island, which is adourned by palm trees, sun-loungers and turquoise water, will welcome TropOut guests and the local gay community for the biggest party of TropOut New Caledonia 2017. It’s a private island, it’s designed for a party, and the local gay community will be joining us- do we need to say any more?

Le Ponton

A day-club that floats above the reef, Le Ponton is truly unique: chilling on sun loungers, dancing to the tunes of TropOut DJs, and snorkelling with tropical fish- it’s all possible at Le Ponton.

Pop Light

Pop Light gay partyWe’ve all seen images of huts rising up out of the sea at places like Tahiti and the Maldives. Well, Pop Light is just like that, but it’s a club- a club that rises out of Noumea’s turquoise lagoon. A short walk from Chateau Royal, our party at Pop Light is certain to be a highlight.

Le Deck

We’re fortunate that Chateau Royal’s on-site club, Le Deck, just happens to one of Noumea’s premier nightspots, and for a reason. A state-of-the-art sound system, a bar with plentiful Champagne and a stylish décor, Le Deck is the place to be following our chilled out day pool party.

L’endroit

Le Deck gay partySituated in Lemon Bay, a restaurant and nightlife district that’s a short 10 minute journey from Chateau Royal aboard our TropOut coaches, L’endroit greets guests with French style and sophistication.

Get ready to close off TropOut New Caledonia in style.

TropOut Gay New Caledonia - Explore

Uncover the culture and sights of the Paris of the Pacific.

Welcome to the Paris of the Pacific

A French territory comprising dozens of islands in the South Pacific, New Caledonia is known for its palm-lined beaches and marine-life-rich turquoise lagoon, which, at 24,000-sq.-km, is the world’s largest. A massive barrier reef (the world’s second largest) surrounds the archipelago’s main island, Grand Terre, and is a major scuba-diving destination.

On Grand Terre is Nouméa, the cosmopolitan capital which effortlessly blends Melanesian and French influences: Shop for high-end fashion north of the city centre before stopping for an aperitif and dinner at one of Rue de Sebastopol’s fine-dining establishments. Or, stroll through the morning markets at Port Moselle Marina to snap up a bargain – amid the bright colour and noisy fun of the stalls, you’ll discover French patisseries and other French delicacies.

Welcome to the Paris of the Pacific. Welcome to New Caledonia.

Uncover the sights and culture of New Caledonia
A range of day tours will be available for you to experience with your fellow TropOut travellers to uncover the sights and culture of New Caledonia. Full tour details, inclusions, pricing and booking information will be available closer to travel. Here’s a summary of the some of the possibilities:

Isle of Pines
Explore Isle of Pines3 hours from Noumea via high-speed catamaran, the UNESCO World Heritage listed Isle of Pines emerges from the lagoon. The turquoise water is as blue as you’ll ever see- the natural pool of baie d’Oro is unquestionably the best illustration of this beauty. As its name suggests, pine trees line deserted beaches- it’s a truly remarkable place.

Amedee Island
Explore Amedee Island Just 24km from Noumea and on the barrier reef is Amedee Island, surrounded by its crystal-clear waters and beautiful white sandy beaches. Amedee Island offers amazing snorkelling opportunities, and is an idyllic location to relax. The Island’s lighthouse is another highlight.

French Cooking School
New Caledonia French Cooking School A highlight of TropOut Thailand was the cooking class by the beach. In New Caledonia we will be replicating this- however the culinary influence will of course be French. Our French chefs will guide you through the preparation of traditional dishes, and as you enjoy the lunch you prepared yourself, there will be of course French wine to match.

The New Caledonian Outback
New Caledonian OutbackNew Caledonia is a land of contrasts- in the morning you can be snorkelling amongst tropical fish in the turquoise lagoon, and in the afternoon, you could be exploring vast plains with rusted colour palettes and fresh-water swimming holes. In the morning you can be eating at a French patisserie, and in the afternoon you could be visiting a traditional Kanak village.

TropOut Story

We created TropOut to offer gay travellers from around the world fun, modern and slightly more refined shared travel experiences.

As you’d know, as gay travellers we can now travel to an ever increasing number of destinations that are accepting of us, but a look here or there when we hold hands with our partners or party with friends can sometimes leave us feeling guarded.

We want to feel totally unguarded when we travel, but mega-cruises and circuit parties aren’t really of interest to us.

Our ideal travel experience is one where we can get out and explore the culture and sights of a new or favourite destination, or rejuvenate in a chilled environment.

And after a day of exploring or chilling, we’d like to return to a stylish setting where we can meet and party with likeminded travellers from all over the globe.

So TropOut was born- a stylish gay beach festival where travellers can Chill, Party & Explore together.

Our mission as a business is simple: to deliver exceptional and comfortable experiences for gay travellers- experiences filled with relaxation, cultural discovery and chic party.

Our first TropOut took place in April 2016 and saw gay guys from over 20 nations descend on Phuket, Thailand for an unforgettable week-long experience. In 2017 we’re taking TropOut to the French-Pacific island of New Caledonia before heading back to Thailand later in the year.

We can’t wait for you to join us to Chill, Party & Explore in New Caledonia!

Gay Groups on Straight Cruises

Gay Groups on Straight Cruises
Gay Groups on Straight CruisesThe Gay-ish Alternative to All-Gay Cruises
Gay groups on mainstream cruises are quite different from full-ship gay cruises. Instead of taking over a whole ship, gay groups have ranged from six to 350 passengers, aboard ships that might hold up to 3,000 passengers. They don’t offer the complete gay experience, although they can make it easy for you to make new friends, find compatible dining companions, and enjoy the camaraderie of group travel on a variety of cruise experiences. The shipboard experience is rarely differentiated much from the standard

on-board experience, but most gay group cruises offer a few special events, like cocktail parties or visits to the crew disco on the QE2, that you wouldn’t get as an individual on that sailing.

Gay groups offer a much broader range of cruise experiences than the all-gay cruises. While all-gay cruises offer just a limited number of departures and a narrow range of ship types and experiences, gay groups cover a broad cross-section of cruise opportunities. You’ll find more interesting ships and more unusual itineraries than those on all-gay cruises.

Gay Group CruisesAlthough gay group cruises and all-gay cruises may seem similar in many respects, they really are very different experiences. Some people clearly enjoy one kind of experience and not the other, but many people, especially cruise enthusiasts, enjoy both kinds of vacations.

Think about what you’re looking for on any given vacation, and investigate accordingly. If shipboard amenities and exotic ports of call hold the greatest interest to you, gay group cruise vacations serve them up in abundance. If the gay-specific entertainment and social opportunities are most intriguing, consider an all-gay cruise or at least make sure you’re in a big group.

Gay Groups on Big Cruise ShipsGay group cruise vacation can offer all the luxuries of a cruise, with these added amenities:

•Exclusive welcome aboard cocktail party. Meet and enjoy the company of your fellow gay travelers on the first evening of your cruise.

•Pre-arranged group dining: We arrange for you to dine in the company of the group.

•Special functions: Depending on the cruise and size of the group, enjoy a variety of exclusive events with your fellow gay vacationers such as , private shore excursions, private happy hour bar, game times, your own special gay host, etc…

The spacious dimensions of Regatta’s suites and staterooms offer the ultimate in luxury. Interiors are decorated with traditional hardwoods, rich fabrics, fine furnishings and original artworks. A fashionable color palette blends sea, sky and comforting earth tones to create a soothing environment. Plump the goose-down pillows of the Prestige Tranquility Bed, an Oceania Cruises exclusive. And enjoy beautiful vistas of the sea on your private teak veranda.

All suites are extraordinarily spacious, affording you your own private retreat. Penthouse Suites feature oversized living and dining areas, marble and granite–clad bathrooms with a bathtub.

Our palatial Owner’s Suites and Vista Suites offer everything you would expect in a world-class hotel, elevating sea-going opulence to new levels. Resplendent with custom Empire-style furnishings from Italy on board, each has its own bedroom, dining area and so much more.

And no matter which room you choose, you’ll find little touches that set Regatta apart. The mini-bar is refreshed daily with free and unlimited soft drinks and bottled water. Bulgari amenities grace the spacious bathroom. Enhanced 24-hour room service is just a phone call away. And their friendly staff is always available to take care of your every need with twice-daily service.
