WHEN the forecast is set to “outrageous” you know that you’re in for an epic party.

Launching from the greatest city in the world, New York, the pioneer of gay cruises is planning to celebrate its 25th anniversary year in the grandest of styles.

On May 21, 2016, Atlantis all-gay cruises will depart with 4200 passengers for an epic eight-day party from the Big Apple to The Caribbean.

Not only will this be the biggest all-gay cruise of 2016, it will also be happening onboard Royal Caribbean’s most advanced new ship, the Anthem of the Seas.

The Anthem is the third-largest ship in Royal Caribbean’s fleet and boasts features such as the Bionic Bar’s robotic bartenders and magical musical extravaganzas in Two70 Theater. Anthem of the Seas offers 18 different innovative places to dine, so you’ll never be short of interesting culinary options.

For those who like to experience a bit of action, you can feel the rush of skydiving with iFly, surf the waves on FlowRider, soar to breathtaking new heights in NorthStar, and play on at SeaPlex – where you’ll find everything from flying trapeze to volleyball to bumper cars and so much more. Three distinctive pools also offer plenty of places to take in the sun, splash a bit, and of course dance under the stars.

The Atlantis Events has a reputation for delivering the best cruise experiences available and this eight-day cruise on the Anthem will be no exception. Guests can guarantee epic themed parties, top-notch entertainment from some of the world’s most iconic performers, excellent shore excursions, and a holiday experience like no other.

Fun times aren’t just restricted to onboard the Anthem and the cruise’s itinerary will help you live out your Caribbean fantasy. The first port is Florida’s Port Canaveral, the gateway to Orlando’s popular theme parks and the Kennedy Space Centre. The next day, the ship pulls into Nassau, the capital of The Bahamas, which boasts miles of stunning beaches and vivid coral reefs perfect for snorkeling. Day five of the cruise is spent at Coco Cay, an area reserved exclusively for cruise guests who can either lie by the beach, swim in pristine waters or jump on their own personal Waverunner. Two more days at sea mean you will have plenty of time to catch up with new friends, explore the ship and get ready for the night’s party in comfort.
