All aboard RuPaul’s ‘Drag Stars at Sea’ Cruise

Add this share

Even if you’ve never been on one, you thought you knew what a gay cruise is. Nope. Here’s your chance to hit the Caribbean for gay cruising with a twist – dozens of “RuPaul’s Drag Race” favorites milling the decks with you for eight days.

Dream? Nightmare? Either way, wake up Atlanta gays. “Drag Stars at Sea: Revenge of the Wench” cruise is a reality. Judge Michelle Visage leads a guest list of more than three dozen “Drag Race” queens – including past winners like Atlanta resident Tyra Sanchez as well as Atlanta-bred contestants Phoenix, Mariah and Sonique – will host cocktail parties, Q&A panels, comedy shows and, of course, drag performance cabarets. All day, every day.

Before you say you’d rather walk the plank, the cruise is being billed as not just an unprecedented first of its kind, but the “largest gathering of ‘Drag Race’ contestants in history.” Now how much would you pay? Well, it’s $449 to $1,149 per person.

All the mayhem goes down on the Carnival Glory ship, sailing from Miami on Dec. 2. From there, drag your way to ports of call in Nassau & Atlantis Resort, Paradise Island, St. Thomas, St. John, San Juan, Grand Turk and Caicos. Brought to you by big gay “Drag Race” sponsor Al and Chuck Travel.

Still having trouble imagining it? Each queen is a group leader with private VIP events with the one you choose. Here’s how Tyra Sanchez envisions it if you pick her.

Cruise with me December 2 on the largest gathering of Drag Race Stars in history! Cruise with me on the Carnival Glory and I will host private VIP events just for you! We’ll greet each other at the cocktail reception with open arms filled with joy! Then we’ll dine out! I say we enjoy a specialty gourmet dinner just for us to talk and catch up! We can capture it all with our souvenir photograph. In the picture I imagine us wishing each other off to a good journey with a bon voyage bottle of wine! Live the magic.

We imagine you talking to Tyra about her new movie, or the ups and downs of living in Atlanta. Or maybe you’d like to cheer and/or talk some sense into rabble rouser Sharon Needles.

Whoever you want to get closer to, you’re starting to get the picture, right? OK then. Interested parties can see the list of featured queens, and reserve your spot here. Choose your preferred group leader from the cast photos at the bottom of the page, and prepare to hit the high seas like you never imagined until now.
