Experiencing a bit of déjà vu? You’re not alone! This post is a review and reminder! Just like when when you’re sitting on an airplane and the flight attendant starts telling you how to fasten your seat belt and you think to yourself “I already know this!” Well, maybe we drank too many of those airplane minis, because we couldn’t remember what we wrote about this cruise 4 months ago, so we’re going over the details again after the jump!
If you enjoy vacationing luxuriously, you'll defiently want to check this out: Cruisers will board the Star Clipper, a modern, luxurious sailing ship 360 feet long that can comfortably accommodate 170 guests. The ship offers spacious accommodations and expansive teak decks with two swimming pools.
The all-gay cruise will sail to the Greek Isles and Turkey. Guests Gays will depart from Athens and sail to the beautiful island of Mykonos where cruisers will spend the night, allowing them to enjoy the great gay nightlife that the island is famous for. The next day they will visit Patmos before they are off to Kusadasi, Turkey. Then travelers will have a day at sea before visiting Greek destinations Monemvasia and Santorini before returning to Athens for the last leg of the trip.
What’s a cruise on the Star Clipper, without, well...a star..or three!? Gene Robinson, the first openly gay bishop inside the wider Anglican Church, will join the European cruise. He'll offer guests a Q&A and special screening of his most recent film, Love Free or Die, the Bishop's documentary which premiered at this year's Sundance Film Festival and won the Special Jury Prize.
Guests will also be treated to world-famous Chicago-based performers Amy Armstrong and Freddy Allen. Amy and Freddy's wit and musical prowess make them one of the most successful cabaret acts to come from Chicago in the last decade.
Staterooms on board start at $ 1,195 per person based on double occupancy. Airfares, transfers, gratuities, and port fees are additional. The European cruise sets sail on August 25th and docks back in Athens on September 1st 2012. If you’re interested in cruising (the water, that is) click here for more information.
