Summer's Hottest Adventure
What better place to start a gay cruise than Amsterdam, Europe’s most gay-friendly city, where charming canals meet a dynamic and passionate scene. After a relaxing day at sea, explore the legendary vineyards of Bordeaux, or simply explore the marvels of one of France’s most recent transformations. Bilbao’s stunningly modern museum sets the tone for the gateway to the magical countryside of Spain’s Basque region. Indulge in the culinary and visual wonders of Galicia, as La Coruna’s awe-inspiring cliffs, windswept pristine beaches, and glorious seafood tempt you at every turn.
Our dramatic arrival into Lisbon will put you in the mood to enjoy the wonders and fascinating nightlife of this unique coastal city. With a full day and night to explore you’ll truly have time to enjoy one of Europe’s most progressive and constantly changing cities. Just save some energy for historic Seville where ancient streets are lined with treasures beyond your imagination.
No visit to Spain would be complete without exploring the beachside city of Malaga, with a magnificent coastline and laid-back attitude. It’s the perfect base to explore the wonders of Spain’s rich south, including the medieval city of Granada and more.
Finally, the ultra-modern Calatrava structures that dot Valencia bring you face-to-face with the future of Spain in one of the world’s most beautiful coastal cities. That is, until we arrive in glorious Barcelona!
One Magnificent Ship
After all that exploring, you’ll be thrilled to come home to the stunning Norwegian Jade. Fresh from a multi-million-dollar upgrade, Jade features a fantastic spacious central pool deck, with incredible open spaces for dancing under the sun and stars. You’ll love her innovative modern look, enticing restaurants, full-service spa, and spectacular performance venues.
While we sail between these amazing ports, there’s plenty to do onboard to keep you entertained, from daytime pool games to our festive afternoon T-dances. Take in our original drag bingo, indulge in a leisurely brunch or a playful game of volleyball, or just find a quiet deck chair. When you’re ready to soothe yourself after a long day of touring, drop into the spectacular spa with every imaginable treatment along with one of the largest and most complete fitness centers at sea.
In so many ways, Jade is the perfect ship for an Atlantis cruise!
