The BEST gay cruises to take in 2021

It’s every gay boy’s dream whether you want to admit it or not. From the moment we both came out many many many moons ago, it was always our dream to go on an all-male gay cruise.

Since those days, the number of gay cruises available has completely mushroomed. As well as the large party orientated ones, there are now cruises going to places beyond the well-trodden pink destinations – like India, Indonesia and even the Galapagos Islands! There are even many you can go on!

In this guide, we’ve put together some of the best gay cruises to look forward to in 2021, which include all LGBTQ cruises, i.e. not just male-only. We’ve sorted them in order of when they depart…and oh boy are we spoilt for choice!

The 5 Do’s and 5 Don’ts of Cruising

With every new generation of gay and bisexual men comes a new generation of cruisers. Men who surreptitiously search for other men in the hopes of a lascivious, salacious, and electrifying sexual encounter. In the era of Grindr, cruising isn’t as popular as it once was. There are now other ways to have an ephemeral sexual tryst. (This is in large part why gay bathhouses are shutting down across the U.S.) But if you are one of the gay/bi men out there, like many of us, who don’t get that same rush from Grindr that you do from furtive eye glances in the sauna — which turn into so much more — then this article is for you: the 5 do’s and 5 don’ts of gay cruising.

7. Don’t take any valuables with you

Don’t take your Rolex or that ring your grandma gave you when she passed away to the gay sauna. Don’t wear any expensive underwear (no matter how cute it is) because you might leave it somewhere, and someone else may pick it up accidentally (or on purpose).

How to pick the ideal gay cruise for you?

There are many different types of gay cruises available these days, from ones that are action-packed and thrilling to those that slowly saunter down the Danube, stopping in at local wineries. You can cruise on huge ships, small luxurious yachts, catamarans or traditional sailing boats. Whether you’re looking to party with thousands of new friends, or cycle among historic towns before relaxing with a drink at sunset back on board, there’s a cruise for you. We’ve compiled all the different options here so that you can easily figure out which gay cruise is the perfect one for you.

Just be aware that some gay cruises are exclusively gay, meaning you will only be sailing with other gay guests, while others are actually small groups of gay travellers within a much larger cruise. This means you’ll still get to be around like-minded friends but there will be other straight travellers on the cruise as well. These sorts of cruises can be ideal if you want to travel with your straight friends, but keep an eye on the fine print if you really want to be only surrounded by your rainbow family!

Kicking off from the high-rise city of Quito, this gay cruise to the Galapagos with Out Adventures will see you sailing off along the equator to the stunning and unique Galapagos Islands.

If Greek island-hopping with 22 other gay guys sounds like a fun time, you’ll want to get onto one of GaySail’s Greece cruises. This particular cruise departs from Athens including stops on Poros, Hydra and Spetses, although there are other dates available, some with different itineraries.

GaySail gay nude cruise in Tahiti

Tahiti – the largest island in the South Pacific archipelago. And wow! It sure does impress. From jagged volcanoes to the exotic wildflowers, Tahiti is a place of contradictions. One moment, you will find yourself clambering over rocky hillsides, and the next you’ll be threading through the softest of sandy beaches. The Tahiti package gives a taste of everything that you are looking for.

R Family ‘OUT in Venice‘ gay Cruise

Another romantic choice which visits some of Italy’s most beautiful spots is R Family Vacation’s ‘Out in Venice‘ gay cruise. It takes place on the newly redesigned S.S. Venezia, which is inspired by Venetian culture and features elegantly appointed cabins as well as two grand suites. There’s also an Italian kitchen restaurant, a spa, library, lounge and bar.

Brand G Amsterdam and Castles of the Rhine Cruise

For a spot of history and culture in Europe, you can’t go past Brand G’s Rhine River cruise which travels from Switzerland to the Netherlands. This is a guaranteed all-LGBT charter, where you will make lots of new gay friends while you enjoy onboard entertainment as well as exploring some of Europe’s most beautiful spots.

Brand G Royal Clipper Mediterranean gay Sailing

Brand G is offering up a pretty spectacular charter gay cruise onboard the Royal Clipper, the largest and only five-masted, full-rigged sailing ship. But don’t worry about being put to work scrubbing the decks because this beautiful dame provides truly luxurious lodging as you explore some of the most glamourous locations along the French and Italian coastline!

1. Gay river cruises

Going on a cruise doesn’t necessarily mean you’re taking to the high seas. Some quite luxurious cruises take place on rivers through Europe, Asia or India, where you’ll be able to relax onboard as well as explore cute villages, wineries and other places along the way. These are usually very relaxed and romantic cruises, ideal for couples or those who are looking for a cruise with a strong focus on culture.

2. Clothing-optional or nude gay cruises

If you like to truly relax on your cruise and let it all hang out then perhaps you should join a gay nude cruise! These cruises are usually hosted on small yachts or catamarans and take place in warm destinations so, you know, you won’t get cold while being nude. There are also some cruises that are exclusively gay and nude, while others are clothing-optional, so you don’t need to feel pressured to be nude all the time if you don’t want to.

The Everything to Sea cruise in Indonesia is our favourite clothing-optional gay cruise, while GaySail Tahiti cruise is our top pick for nude cruises.

3. Gay party cruises

For a fun-filled cruise packed with plenty of hot young guys and lots of great parties, check out some of the bigger gay cruise companies like Atlantis. These usually take place on the larger cruise ships, with lots of pools, bars and different entertainment like DJs or drag performers. They usually attract a young and energetic crowd, but anybody who’s up for a good time will be welcome!

4. Gay cruises for single travellers

Single travellers are often daunted at the prospect of going on a cruise alone as you usually have to pay an expensive single supplement to have a room to yourself. If you still want to join a gay cruise but without paying a huge supplement then you can choose one of the cruise companies that offer programs to pair you up with a bunkmate with similar interests. This way you can still enjoy everything the cruise has to offer, plus you’ll meet at least one new friend.

where you can fill in a questionnaire and be paired up with a like-minded travel mate. The Atlantis and GaySail cruises also match single travellers up with others to share a room at no extra charge. Read more about in our full post.

5. Adventure gay cruises

Do you like your luxury with a side of adventure? There are some excellent gay cruises that include exhilarating activities like snorkelling, SCUBA diving, hiking or getting up close and personal to lots of wildlife. Generally, you will need a reasonable level of fitness in order to take part in all the fun activities on this type of cruise, although there will also be plenty of opportunities for relaxing.

Out Adventures do some really exciting ones, particularly their Galapagos gay cruise that will have you hopping all over the islands, spotting Galapagos tortoises, sea lions and beautiful tropical fish. If your bucket-list item is to see Antarctica, check out the best gay cruises to the icy continent here!

6. Gay cruises for bears

If you identify as a Bear, a Cub, or just a friend of the Bear community, then there are also some cruises exclusively for the Bear community. Adventure Bears organises an exclusive cruise for bears (and those who love them) to the Mexican Riviera. This is a very welcoming cruise that hops between the best cities and beaches, including the exciting gay mecca of Puerto Vallarta!

7. Gay cruises for lesbians

Don’t worry ladies, we haven’t forgotten you! It’s not all about the gay men as there are companies that organise exclusive lesbian cruises to stunning locations, so you can relax and enjoy yourself with like-minded female travellers. Olivia Travel is a great company that organises exclusive lesbian tours and cruises like this fun Tahitian Intimate Luxury Cruise. 

If you’re the kind of lady who prefers smaller expeditions, check out Out Adventures‘ all-women cruises such as this departure in Croatia.
