This is a first for both P&O and for the wider cruise market – no one has offered a gay cruise before. And while all-gay charter cruises catering to the LGBQT+ community are commonplace, less common is a cruise line officially offering a dedicated voyage catering specifically to the celebration of Gay Pride.

“Guests on the Pride Cruise will be able to celebrate the themes of love, compassion, respect and understanding through lectures, educational and spiritual events, ” said P&O Australia partnerships manager Chris Rich.
