Melbourne to Sydney Cruise (Atlantis on Virgin Voyages)
Atlantis cruises are always a bit raunchy and this one is no exception. Come aboard the Resilient Lady for four days of no-holds barred fun, sailing from Melbourne to Sydney with stops at Burnie in Tasmania and Australia's Newcastle along the way. If that ship name sounds familiar, it's because it belongs to adult cruise liners Virgin Voyages, who are lending out their vessel for an all gay cruise that isn't likely to have many virgins aboard! Just as with all Virgin ships, buffets and large dining halls are replaced with quirky international themed restaurants and there are no hidden fees, since gratuity/tips are already included. The entertainment naturally has a gayer twist to it, but Virgin ships always have vibrant shows like drag queen bingo, nighttime parties – up on deck or in their own club – and many extra surprises. On land excursions include trips to Australia and Tasmania's iconic beaches, wineries and other treats. It’s the perfect blend of true relaxation and the absolute best Atlantis parties, entertainment, and endless fun for 2,000 guys from around the world. View Atlantis Australia Cruise →
