Carnival has Gay Spirit

Carnival Australia has teamed up with Australia’s first gay tour operator, Gay Globe, to organize a gay group to holiday on the 2,680-passenger ship Carnival Spirit.

It is the fifth year that they are targeting gay groups to cruise together.  This follows the success of last year’s group that travelled the South Pacific on board ms Oosterdam.

The group will sail on the nine-night ‘Island Fruits Tropical Cruise’, which will depart Sydney on 24 March 2014 and includes full day visits to Isle of Pines, Lifou Island, Mare and Noumea.

Entertainment on board will also include an exclusive welcome aboard cocktail party with a Love Boat theme, a tropical paradise pool party and a formal night.

Guests will also be able to enjoy Carnival Spirit’s on board activities, which include the water park, two-deck fitness centre, the ship’s Twister Waterslide and Green Thunder ride.

There are also four restaurants and 16 bars and lounges with live entertainment and shows.

Prices start from $1,360 per person for a quad stateroom.
