Miami Beach Gay Pride 2010 Announces First-Ever Pride Cruise To the Bahamas Aboard Norwegian Sky

From Ocean Drive to the ocean, Miami Beach Gay Pride 2010 is setting sail with the first-ever “Pride Celebration at Sea,” Monday, April 19 through Friday, April 23, 2010 on Norwegian Sky. With the 2nd Annual Pride Parade and Expo set for Saturday, April 17, along South Beach’s famed Ocean Drive, this cruise is an ideal way to extend the magic of Pride weekend for another five days at sea.  The event also represents an opportunity to “cruise for a cause” as a portion of the tickets sold will be donated back to Miami Beach Gay Pride.

“More than 20,000 people came together for our first Pride celebration in 2009,” says Babak Movahedi, president of Miami Beach Gay Pride’s Board of Directors.  “The addition of this cruise is an exciting continuation of the Pride festivities, extending the great feeling of PRIDE to a community at sea.”

The Pride Cruise is a four-night/five-day voyage aboard the luxurious Norwegian Sky with stops in Grand Bahama, Nassau and Great Stirrup Cay.  The cruise is produced by Source Events, the premier travel company specializing in adventurous travel for the LGBT community and their friends.

“Miami is the cruise capital of the world, and we can’t think of a better place to host the first-ever official Pride Cruise,” says Craig Smith, president of Source Events.   “In addition to the sparkling Caribbean and exciting ports-of-call, the Pride Cruise will feature special parties, a tea dance, entertainment, guest speakers, exclusive shore excursions and even a gay film night at sea.”

Norwegian’s signature “Freestyle Cruising” aboard Norwegian Sky features a choice of six restaurants, ten bars and lounges, a full-service Body Waves Spa, fitness center, two glimmering pools, five hot tubs, a basketball/volleyball court, golf driving net, Internet cafe and a jogging/walking track. Nightlife includes the Sky Club Casino, Stardust Theater, White Hot Party, karaoke, or just chilling out with old and new friends, admiring the view from Norwegian Sky’s beautiful glass-domed atrium.
