Atlantis cruise reviews.

Recommended Posts

60-year-old recently divorced closeted guy.  Have never taken a gay cruise and was wanting to find out if I would be comfortable take a gay exclusive cruise.   Not sure how far outside my comfort zone this would be but I am curious if others have been in my situation.   
i would be going as single man.   

I am familiar with Atlantis but know that other companies operate in that same space. I would also be interested in perhaps the Mediterranean area or Greek islands, Spain.  
 

thanks in advance for directing me to someplace where I could read more information whether it be a blog or review.

Nothing to fear being solo on an Atlantis cruise.  I prefer RSVP.   Gay cruises are far more $ than regular cruises and the added cost is just not worth it.   The entertainment quality level is less.   I went on one in the Mediterranean and it was a disaster because of the management overplaying the gayness in Turkey.  We were pulled off the tours and rushed back to the ship.  Regular cruises today are far more welcoming to the community and in fact they have nightly gatherings that are very popular.  Small gay groups are better to go on then a full gay cruise.    Plus I wear my speedos every day on a ship on deck or in the awesome private spas that do not have the crowds.

Both RSVP & Atlantis are great. Frankly don’t see much difference between the two. Many of the same people sail both. Europe skews a bit older which is nice. 
if you’re a partier you will have a great time. If you are not you will still have a great time. 
Lots of great events on board for single people. I think you would have a great time. 
keep us posted with what you decide.

I'd suggest looking at "Pied Piper".  They do gay groups on a variety of lines/ships/itinerary.  Groups are on average 10-30 folks. We've found that traveling with Pied Piper offered us the opportunity to develop close long lasting friendships.  We have done an RSVP but not Atlanits.  Much prefer a small group on a more "mainstream"  cruise.

Thanks to the three people who responded. All great points. I would love to find something that is geared more towards my age group. But also with the component of meeting a lot of nice guys since I want step out of my straight focused comfort zone.   For me it’s a new chapter of interaction that I want to explore. I’m not a wild party animal. But I would like to feel more comfortable in the social scene..

I will explore all of them especially the European or Mediterranean type cruises. I will also check into pied piper.
