It All Starts in Spain
Our most original gay cruise itinerary starts in Barcelona, the summer gay capital of Europe, immediately after the finale of WorldPride in Madrid. After a day exploring the sun-splashed island of Mallorca we’ll sail to legendary Ibiza for an endlessly playful night and relaxing day on some of the world’s most magnificent beaches. By then you’ll need a quiet day at sea!
Discover Exotic Treasures
The imposing cliffs and windswept buildings of Malta create one of the world’s most fabulous settings for a day of true exploration. The only thing more dramatic might be our next day in Sicily, where legendary Mt. Etna and the inviting hilltop town of Taormina have marveled travelers for centuries. Spend a day immersed in Greek summer revelry on the lush green island of Corfu. And nothing prepares you for the dramatic ancient city of Dubrovnik, certainly one of Croatia’s greatest treasures.
Finally, Atlantis makes our first-ever visit to Slovenia with a day in the charming venetian-influenced town of Koper before our final stop in beautiful Venice.
Sensational Days to Play
After day of serious sightseeing, Celebrity and Atlantis will take care of you in grand style.
