Royal Clipper Panama Canal
All-Gay Cruise 2021

November 20–27, 2021
Star Clippers Royal Clipper

Happy Gay Travel & Brand g Vacations are proud to offer an LGBT+, inclusive, guaranteed full ship charter all-gay cruise through the Panama Canal to Colombia & Aruba, an experience unlike any you’ll find on any other cruise ship.

 

Cartagena Colombia gay cruise

 

We have chartered the Royal Clipper, the largest and only five-masted, full-rigged sailing ship. With a complement of 42 sails, the Royal Clipper is a splendid sight to behold. Experience the informal elegance, culinary delights, and gracious service in the intimacy of 227 LGBT+ friends.

Laugh. Dance. Smile. Relax on this unforgettable adventure of the senses.

 

Aruba Caribbean gay cruise

 

This cruise departs from Panama City, Panama. The main attraction here is, of course, the Panama Canal, considered by many the eighth wonder of the world. The Panama Canal is a 48-mile-long corridor that connects the Atlantic Ocean (via the Caribbean Sea) to the Pacific Ocean.The canal cuts across the Isthmus of Panama and is a key conduit for international maritime trade. On your Panama Canal cruise, join other passengers on the decks as a canal historian explains the workings of the locks and points out sights along the way.

The cruise ends in Oranjestad, Aruba. The island is a surprising mix of soft, white-sand beaches and desert; Dutch heritage and influences from nearby Venezuela.

The Ship

The Royal Clipper boasts state-of-the-art navigation systems and every comfort and luxury one could wish for. For connoisseurs of sail cruising, the 439 foot Royal Clipper offers the ultimate sea-going experience, balancing the grandeur, adventure and tradition of sailing with the superb service, amenities and accommodations of the finest modern yacht. Royal Clipper carries just 227 guests in luxurious style.

Find your secret hideaway on one of the hidden balconies on either side of the bow. Or climb the mast (with safety harness provided) to one of the passenger lookout crows-nests, thoughtfully furnished with a comfortable settee, where you’ll have the grandest view of all!

 

Royal Clipper interior

 

Royal Clipper’s interior spaces are just as dazzling. They include a three-deck atrium that funnels sunlight into the elegantly appointed, three-level dining room featuring open-seating dining, deliciously prepared cuisine and a no-tie dress code.

Your ship’s accommodations are thoughtfully designed, featuring: private bathrooms, air conditioning, hair dryers, private safe, television, DVD player and nightly turn-down service. Cabins are equipped with 220-volt outlets, plus a 110-volt shaver outlet. Bring a converter if you need to use U.S. appliances which are not dual voltage.

The Royal Clipper offers a large number of activities to her guests. But, the real icing on the cake are all of the extra touches provided by Brand g along with the comfort you can only find in the environment of an all-gay and lesbian vacation.

 

Royal Clipper Dining Room

 

Dining
The chefs aboard the Royal Clipper transform ordinary dining into an extraordinary treat. And you’re free to dine when and with whomever you wish—including the sailors, which is also very appetizing.

Every morning you can nibble on a continental breakfast with delicious muffins and rolls or feast on a full breakfast with fruit, bacon and omelets made to order.

For lunch there’s a marvelous buffet of seafood, salads and grilled favorites. And when evening comes, our elegantly appointed dining room becomes the setting for the chef’s finest culinary presentations, designed to please the eye and the palate, and complimented by a selection of equally fine wines.

Panama gay cruise 2021

 

Travel Itinerary

Day 1 - Saturday, November 20, 2021
Balboa (Panama City), Panama

Panama City gay cruise Along the piers of Balboa, the port marking the Pacific terminus of the Panama Canal, you’ll see yachts from all over the world.

Balboa was built to house American administrative headquarters for the Canal and many of the buildings are handsome examples of the American colonial style of the early 1900’s.

 

Day 2 - Sunday, November 21, 2021
Panama Canal Transit

Panama Canal Today we take a leisurely cruise through the Panama Canal and get a real-life look at perhaps last century’s greatest engineering achievement… along with its surrounding lush, verdant lands.

This testament to human audacity joins the Pacific and Caribbean in the most direct way possible, and is well worth the nearly 20-hour voyage.

 

Day 3 - Monday, November 22, 2021
San Blas Archipelago, Panama

Panama gay cruise - tucanThe vivid colors of the San Blas Islands are undoubtedly the inspiration for the fanciful birds, fish and animals in brilliant reds, oranges, blues and greens that decorate the intricately appliquéd molas created by the indigenous Kuna women.

Strung along the throat of Panama’s dramatically beautiful Kuna Yala coast, the remoteness of these coral atolls protects an independent people who prize their communal culture with its rich oral history and artistic heritage.

 

Day 4 - Tuesday, November 23, 2021
Fun Day at Sea!

Royal Clipper poolThe Royal Clipper offers a traditional and elegant way to see the world. Feel the wind fill the sails and gently carry you from one gorgeous destination to the next.

Use this relaxing day at sea to read a book, get in a workout in the Royal Clipper gym, visit the spa or on board sauna, work on your tan, or simply do nothing and watch the world go by.

 

Day 5 - Wednesday, November 24, 2021
Cartagena, Colombia

Colombia gay cruise - Cartagena Cartagena is a UNESCO World Heritage site. Located on the north coast of Colombia, Cartagena host a spectacular collection of buildings and massive fortifications dating from the early 1600’s.

The Fortresses were built to protect Cartagena from pirates. City highlights include Saint Philip of Barajas Fortresses and the Fort Ferdinand Fort.

 

Day 6 - Thursday, November 25, 2021
Santa Marta, Colombia

Colombia gay cruise - Santa MartaThe oldest city in Colombia, romantic Santa Marta is fringed by beautiful beaches and the stunning mountains of the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta range.

Ancient ruins take cover in the lush mangrove forests of Tayrona National Park, the perfect spot for a day hike.

 

Day 7 - Friday, November 26, 2021
Fun Day at Sea!

Royal Clipper deckDuring your time on board, you can choose to relax on a sun lounger or cool off in one of the pools on the top deck, while more adventurous passengers may enjoy the opportunity to climb the rigging or even have a go at steering the ship.

Alternatively, you can wander the interior areas of the ship and discover relaxing lounges, a revitalising spa and a peaceful library.

 

Day 8 - Saturday, November 27, 2021
Oranjestad, Aruba

Oranjestad, Aruba gay cruiseBon boni means welcome in the local dialect, Papiamento, and it’s universally understood by all who visit little Aruba. Just 15 miles from Venezuela, this almost independent nation still has a ceremonial Dutch Governor General. Once it depended on oil for income, but tourism is the new king. No wonder Aruba’s endless beaches and spectacular diving are too tempting to pass up.

After breakfast, disembark and enjoy your included Brand g transfer to the Aruba airport, or to a local hotel to extend your stay.

Entry Requirements
A passport, which is valid for six months after your last date of travel, is required for this trip. Non-US Citizens should check with their consulate on correct Visa requirements. In the event that you lose your passport while traveling, we recommend you photocopy the first pages of your passport, airline tickets, driver’s license and/or birth certificate to simplify and expedite the process of replacing lost documents. Keep the originals separate from the copies. This will make replacement easier if you lose them en route. It is also useful to carry spare passport photos. You may wish to scan your passport, airline tickets and credit card numbers and email them to yourself as attachments, so you may download copies to assist in obtaining replacements.

 

What does all-inclusive vacation mean?
All-inclusive can never mean every single thing; but at Brand g, we come as close as possible. Our trips almost inevitably include pre-cruise hotel stay, all transfers, unlimited wine and beer at lunch and dinner onboard, guided walking tours in every port, etc. When we say “inclusive”, we mean it! The specifics for this vacation are listed above.

Health and Safety
A Registered Nurse is either on staff or is available from shore. In addition, the ship’s officers are qualified in administering first aid. Should a passenger require hospital treatment, the ship is almost always near a medical facility on shore. Passengers requiring prescription medicine are advised to bring them onboard.

 

Special Diets
Please advise us prior to departure if you have any special dietary requirements. We will make every effort possible to always accommodate your requests, however, please note that local conditions and seasonality can restrict our ability on occasions.

 

What can I expect on Brand g travel program?
All of Brand g Vacations will have at least two trip escorts. Depending on the size and location of the program, we will also include signature Brand g entertainment, including cabaret artists, DJs and comedians. The true stars of any Brand g travel program are the travelers themselves. Whether you’re traveling with a partner or interested in making new friends, our trips provide excellent opportunities to explore the world with others that share similar values.

 

Party with Brand G

 

Do you offer a single supplement or a roommate sharing program?
We do offer a single supplement on all of our travel programs; however, it may vary depending on the destination. Our goal with roommate matching is to help facilitate an introduction with other solo travelers prior to your vacation to see if there is compatibility to share a room.

 

I am traveling by myself; will I be the only single traveler?
Not at all, depending on the trip, anywhere between 15 to 40% of the group will be solo travelers!

 

Panama gay cruise - San Blas Archipelago

 

Should I buy travel insurance?
We strongly recommend the purchase of travel insurance to protect against unforeseen circumstances that might prevent you from traveling with us or unfortunate circumstances during your trip. Travel Insurance is an excellent way of protecting your vacation investment. We recommend Travelex Travel Insurance, however you are welcome to shop and compare plans from other companies to find the best fit for you.

 

Is it hard meeting others?
Even the shyest among us end up in group hugs by the end of our cruises. The intimate size (generally 60-150 passengers) provides an opportunity for people to get to know each other in a way not at all possible on large ocean cruises. Countless guests have commented that they aren’t outgoing, and did not anticipate meeting anyone on their cruises, yet made extraordinary new friends – and, in some cases, partners – onboard.

 

Will I be the youngest onboard?
Mainstream river cruises sometimes have the perception that all the guests are well past retirement age. Brand g cruises, on the other hand, host a wide range of ages, from 20’s-80’s. The average age is mid-50’s, but on any given cruise there are a number of much younger and older guests. Brand g’s entertainment offerings onboard – from shows to parties – make our cruises, in the words of countless cruise staff, “the most fun group we’ve ever had on this ship”.
