The first gay cruise from China will visit six exotic Asian ports in four countries
(WEST HOLLYWOOD) Atlantis Events, Inc., the world’s largest company specializing in all-gay and lesbian vacations, is offering guests on the first-ever gay cruise to mainland China, South Korea and Japan, a special roundtrip airfare of only $399.
Only cruise participants who book an outside or balcony stateroom by January 12 can take advantage of this exclusive airfare promotion. Flights may originate from any continental U.S. or Canadian city and will arrive in Shanghai and depart from Hong Kong.
Since 1991, Atlantis has been chartering entire cruise ships and all-inclusive resorts around the world for the exclusive use of its gay and lesbian guests. Then it completely customizes the experience with unique and diverse entertainment, special parties, tours, activities and teams of talented hosts.
Last year’s first-ever Asia cruise from Hong Kong to Singapore sold out in record time.
“Our first all-gay Asia cruise was such an incredible success that we’ve created a brand new sailing experience to complement the original itinerary,” said Rich Campbell, Atlantis CEO. “Our guests asked for more exotic options to Asia, and we’re thrilled to bring them this historic offering. We’re bringing all the camaraderie, entertainment and fun of an Atlantis cruise to some of the most intriguing and beautiful cities in northern Asia.”
The cruise sets sail from Shanghai, on March 20, 2010, on the five-star, 684-passenger Azamara Quest.
The 10-day cruise will make stops in Busan, South Korea; Hiroshima, Osaka, and Kagoshima, Japan; Taipei, Taiwan; and Hong Kong. The cruise will overnight in Osaka allowing guests ample time to visit Kyoto, a city filled with thousands of temples, gardens, palaces and cherry blossoms. There’s also a long stay in Taipei, Taiwan’s largest city with ancient temples, soaring skyscrapers and fantastic gay-friendly nightlife.
Staterooms on the Shanghai to Hong Kong cruise start at $1799 per person and include all of Azamara’s deluxe accommodations and unparalleled services that include one staff member for every two guests, in addition to Atlantis’ signature entertainment, parties and activities.
Continuing the journey, Atlantis will also offer a new Hong Kong to Singapore cruise on the Azamara Quest. The cruise will sail from Hong Kong on March 30 with stops in Hue, Nha Trang and Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam; and Bangkok and Koi Samui, Thailand; before concluding in Singapore. This cruise includes a full overnight in Bangkok, one of the most fascinating, vibrant and thriving cities in the world. Staterooms on the Hong Kong to Singapore cruise start at $1899 per person.
