Statement Regarding Puerto Vallarta Party Boat Sinking December 31 2020

PV Delice wishes to communicate the positive resolution of the tragic event on December 31, 2020, in relation to the sinking of one of our gay party boat cruises in Puerto Vallarta, where fortunately there were no injured lives or health problems to regret. The PV Delice Cruise company thanks the competent authorities for their support, also the crew for their great professionalism, the media for keeping the citizens and of course our clients informed in a timely manner for their trust and understanding. 

Please note that many news articles are incorrectly reporting the sinking ship was chartered by Jeffrey Sanker of White Party Palm Springs. Please use this article as confirmation that Jeffrey Sanker of White Party PV did not charter the ship that sank December 31, 2020 in Puerto Vallarta. PV Delice who chartered it is a separate weekly boat cruise tour that operates in Puerto Vallarta that is in no way affiliated with Jeffrey Sanker and White Party PV.

Everything to Sea

EVERYTHING TO SEA –
CLOTHING OPTIONAL GAY CRUISES

Nude relaxed sailing trips for guys in Flores/Komodo, Indonesia.

These trips go beyond the superficial gay lifestyle, allowing guys to really delve into concepts like nudity, sexual freedom, body imagery, and the connective ties that bind all men.

Our boat – an all-wood traditional vessel – sails amongst islands in the calm and exotic Flores Sea, near Bali. Small group experiences, limited to 12 men as guests, plus our local crew, and two Western Leaders.

All-inclusive prices, meaning not only food and drinks (even beer, wine and cocktails), but also some fun and unusual inclusions like massages and body-shaving. It’s social, it’s fun, it’s connected… and it’s naked.

The clothing-optional element allows each guy to be as comfortable as he likes – whether in a speedo, sarong, or birthday suit. In a connected, friendly, chill atmosphere, guys can release sexual inhibitions as they release stress.

Enjoy camaraderie, a relaxed vibe, and stunning nature – while au naturel.

Cruising As a Gay Couple – The Globetrotter Guys

Cruising As a Gay Couple - The Globetrotter Guys

After our last gay cruise with Atlantis Events we sat down and talked about all the different types of people on board and how incredible it was to see everyone be themselves, free from outside judgement. We reached out and asked the community for their own personal experiences on-board the Atlantis gay cruise and had an overwhelming amount of responses.

One response that really stood out was from Jon and Blake from Oregon. They have been on three gay cruises and have seen their relationship develop over time. They shared some incredibly interesting and refreshing insights in our interview below.

To read about other types of people on a gay cruise, head over to ‘Who goes on a gay cruise‘ where we have spoken to everyone from solo travellers, to couples, throuples and groups of friends. Over to Jon and Blake to talk about cruising as an open gay couple:

Cruising as a Gay Couple: An Interview with Jon and Blake

Hi guys, thanks so much for offering to speak with us. Please could you introduce yourselves to our readers.

Hi there, I’m Jon, here with my husband Blake, in Portland, OR by way of NM and AZ. We’ve now been together just over 10 years.

Can you tell us a little about your cruises with Atlantis to date?

We first joined the Atlantis cruise family in 2018, so this was our third consecutive “January cruise.” Our first was as a closed, engaged couple in an 8 year relationship. We went with a group of about 30 friends, and as we were considered a more ‘uptight’ couple, they weren’t sure whether we would come along! By our second cruise, much of that group had decided not to return, though with a few carryovers, friends, and others we had met on the 2018 cruise, our orbit continued to grow. Just a few months prior to the cruise, we had begun discussing the idea of an ‘open’ relationship, in part from exposure to it via coupled friends, and in part, via the 2018 cruise.

Who Really Goes on a Gay Cruise? – The Globetrotter Guys

Who Really Goes on a Gay Cruise? - The Globetrotter Guys

Please throw all of your stereotypes and preconceptions straight out of the window – they aren’t welcome on this gay cruise.

We have been on our second gay cruise with Atlantis and are finding it incredibly difficult to put into words how the experience felt.

It’s the one place in the world where we felt no barriers whatsoever.

It allowed us to remove all of our inhibitions, be our true selves and celebrate every type of person with no judgement or attitude at all.

It was empowering, liberating, full of love, the friendliest environment we have experienced and gives us hope for humanity. An Atlantis gay cruise is something special that needs to be experienced to be appreciated and fully understood. 

We’ve asked you to throw away your stereotypes for good reason, these may include:

  • Gay cruises are just for hot young muscle-men 
  • Gay cruises are just for singles looking for sex 
  • In contrast to the one above, some people think cruises are actually just for couples
  • In contrast again, some people ask why on earth would you go on a gay cruise as a monogamous couple?
  • Gay cruises are cliquey, I could never go solo

Before we move on, from our experience and from all the people we have spoken to, all the above points are false.

Quite simply, a gay cruise is for everyone. It doesn’t matter if you are travelling solo, with friends, are in either an open or closed couple, a throuple or anything else in between – we have seen and met them all.

However, don’t take our word for it, we have sat down and interviewed a mix of these types of travellers from this years Atlantis gay cruise.

Read on to find out how this experience worked out for each of them.

Best Caribbean Gay Cruises for 2020 – The Nomadic Boys

“Aruba, Jamaica, oh I want to take ya
Bermuda, Bahama, come on pretty mama…”

While there might not be a real “Kokomo” in the Caribbean (or at least there wasn’t until that Beach Boys’ song came out!) there are still so many incredibly beautiful islands to explore. From the colourful and lively San Juan to the lush and mountainous Grenada, the Caribbean has a great deal to offer.

Give us a Caribbean beach or two any day. Or better still, hop aboard a Caribbean gay cruise and you get to visit a whole bunch of them. With over 700 islands, islets and reefs to explore, island hopping this lush area of the world with a fabulous group of gay guys is definitely the way forward!

When it comes to gay cruises in the Caribbean, there are many options. Each one is unique in its own way. We’ve put together our list of some of the best ones you need to check out. Note that we have divided our guide up into two parts: the first featuring gay only cruises, the second, a gay group mixed with a larger group.

RSVP 35TH ANNIVERSARY CARIBBEAN CRUISE

RSVP is well known in the gay cruise industry, and they’ve been around! This cruise celebrates their 35th anniversary.

The RSVP Caribbean Cruise takes place aboard the Holland America Line’s Nieuw Statendam, which oozes style, sophistication and sass! With an innovative entertainment centre, a theatre stage, dance club, and live music bar, the days spent at sea will feel just as exciting as the days spent exploring ashore.

Gay Cruises for Singles – The Nomadic Boys

Gay Cruises for Singles - The Nomadic Boys

Whilst we love going on gay cruises together, we also do the occasional solo trip independently of one another – something we recommend everyone does, whether you’re in a relationship or single. The bane of solo travellers, however, is having to fork out for the luxury of travelling solo…

You’ve also encountered it right? The single supplement!

We get it. Cruises have to account for their costs. But what if you want to set sail and not have to factor in this unnecessary cost? In fact, a question we’re often asked by many of our fabulous readers is “which are the best gay cruises for singles?”

Well guys, we’ve got you covered right here!
We’ve scoured the net and found all the best gay cruises available for solo travellers and put them all in this detailed guide.

Choosing The Best Gay Cruises for Singles

It can definitely be tough scouting out the perfect cruise when travelling solo. Everything is geared towards couples, so branching out can be very intimidating, not to mention expensive since you usually have to budget for that ubiquitous single supplement fee! Luckily, there are several options available for solo travellers

  1. The Room Share Programme

There are a handful of cruise lines that offer a ‘Room Share Programme’. This is where they pair you up with another solo traveller based on whether you are a smoker or non-smoker and sometimes with even more details about your personality. We love this idea because you know that you’re likely to make a new lifelong friend (if not something more!!). The Room Share Programme is also a fantastic way of getting around paying for that single supplement.

Best Gay Adventure Cruises for 2020 – The Nomadic Boys

Best Gay Adventure Cruises for 2020 - The Nomadic Boys

Do you know what we love about cruises? Lazing around and being pampered in ultimate luxury. But do you know what makes a cruise even more exciting for us? The opportunity to visit exciting destinations where you can take part in lots of different adventurous activities.

For us, gay cruises that have an adventurous twist have a special kind of magic to them, whether it’s snorkelling with sea lion pups in the Galapagos islands or kayaking in the icy waters of mighty Antarctica. It’s also one of the most exciting ways to tick off lots of those bucket list items!

These are some of our favourite gay adventure cruises on offer at the moment. We’ve split this guide up into two parts: the first focusing on exclusively gay adventure cruises, the second on gay groups that are part of a larger (“non-gay”) group.

Gay Adventure Cruises – Out Adventures Galapagos Gay Cruise

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

As you visit the Galapagos Islands, you’ll discover places that remained undiscovered by mankind for thousands of years. Because of this, they have been able to develop incredible ecosystems unseen anywhere else in the world.
