Miami Beach Gay Pride has announced details of its annual post-parade cruise, this year from Monday, April 15, to Friday, April 19:
Miami Beach – January 8, 2013 -- From Ocean Drive to the ocean waves, Miami Beach Gay Pride 2013 is setting sail once again with Source Events for the “Miami Beach Pride Cruise” immediately following all the Miami Beach Gay Pride festivities. The Pride Cruise, Monday, April 15 to Friday, April 19, 2013, is an ideal way to extend the magic of Pride for another five days at sea. The event also represents an opportunity to “cruise for a cause” as a portion of all tickets sold through Source Events will be donated back to Miami Beach Gay Pride.
The Pride Cruise is a four-night/five-day voyage aboard the luxurious Norwegian Sky with stops in Grand Bahamas Island, Nassau and Great Stirrup Cay, Norwegian’s private island. As the official Pride Cruise producer, Source Events is able to offer exclusive cruise VIP events and activities not offered to other passengers onboard Norwegian Sky. These private activities include a welcome cocktail party, complimentary happy hours, sail-away tea-dances, private parties with the Pride Cruise guest DJ Chris Racine, a gay beach party on the private island and a special Pride Cruise goodie bag.
“We are thrilled to continue offering the opportunity to sail as a special LGBT group onboard one of Norwegian Cruise Line’s most popular cruises,” said Craig Smith, president of Source Events. “We invite the LGBT community to join us with a group of friends, or come onboard to meet fun, new people from all over the country – and the world – to celebrate, connect, unite and share great times.”
In addition to the Source Events activities planned for the cruise, Pride Cruise passengers can take advantage of all the amenities aboard Norwegian Sky including a choice of five restaurants, eight bars and lounges, a full-service Body Waves spa and fitness center, two glimmering pools, five hot tubs, a basketball/volleyball court, two golf driving nets, an Internet cafe and a jogging/walking track. Nightlife includes the Sky Club Casino, Stardust Theater, Dazzles Nightclub, a karaoke bar, or just chilling out with old and new friends, admiring the view from Norwegian Sky’s beautiful glass-domed atrium.
“Miami Beach Pride has grown into the largest, single-day event of the year in Miami Beach,” said Babak Movahedi, chairman of the Miami Beach Gay Pride Board of Directors. “The Pride Cruise represents an exciting continuation of the Pride festivities, extending the great feeling of Pride to a community at sea.”
