Atlas World Navigator gay cruise

 

Your Ship - Brand New Luxury World Navigator!

World Navigator was conceived with the sensibilities of an explorer — one who believes the world is best experienced up close, while still leaving the destination untouched. Launching in 2021, this vessel realizes the possibilities of environmental stewardship with a propeller-less hybrid propulsion system engineered by Rolls-Royce and anchor-less positioning, both designed to leave the marine environment undisturbed.

This is how you can best enjoy the world and protect it for others. And as the expedition-style World Navigator quietly nestles into the amazing, remote and rugged locations on your itinerary, you’ll wonder why anyone would roam any other way.

 

World Navigator pool

 

World Navigator features four decks of accommodations, totaling just under 100 suites and staterooms that range in size and spaciousness to suit your priorities. All feature cinematic ocean views. Nearly all include balconies. And the interior décor is selected with a designer’s eye. Enjoy the perfect balance of rugged days and indulgent nights onboard World Navigator.

Whether you’re waking up to an amazing day at sea or returning from a day of bicycling along the Black Sea, or other down-to-earth adventures, you’ll find World Navigator has another set of enriching all-inclusive discoveries in store for you. Wondering what to do first? The crew is happy to guide you toward an experience that feels designed just for you.

 

World Navigator lounge

 

Chill
Take a dip in the heated pool and whirlpools, where the water is relaxing, and the conversation is invigorating. And keep your eyes on the ocean, because you never know when you’ll spot a cresting whale or pod of dolphins in the wild.

Sip
Relive the day’s adventures with new friends at the ship’s intimate bars and lounges. Enjoy the selection of included liquors and fine wines, as well as classic and creative cocktails while you post photos and double-tap each moment.

 

World Navigator restaurant

 

Savor
Every meal is a marvel when the chefs bring world-class credentials, and fresh, local ingredients to the table. Enjoy our all-inclusive restaurants, indulge as you desire, from your morning camembert to filet mignon to midnight cookies and milk.

Breathe
Deck 4 is dedicated to health, physical, and mental wellness, featuring SeaSpa by L’Occitane, the fitness center, a juice bar and more. Or you can stroll or jog around Deck 8 while you bask in brilliant ocean views. Increase strength and flexibility on state-of-the art equipment and at yoga and Pilates classes. Convene with your fellow literati at one of the lively onboard classes on a range of subjects.

 

World Navigator Observation Lounge

 

Feel
You’ve had a full day. A boots and binoculars kind of day. Now, melt into a full menu of treatments designed to soothe and celebrate you at SeaSpa by L’Occitane, featuring signature Provençal ingredients and the healing touch of L’Occitane-trained specialists.

Reach
When you’re standing on the bow of Deck 5 at Water’s Edge Lookout, you’re just 30’ from icy Antarctic waters. Spotting whales off the coast of Brazil can prompt an impromptu detour. And a morning espresso on your balcony is sweetened with up-close Amalfi Coast views.

Istanbul, Turkey gay cruise

Day 1 - Istanbul, Turkey
Istanbul's combination of religious history and vibrant, cultural influences make it a dream destination for the most experienced travelers. Throughout its history, many empires have ruled in Turkey. The influences of Roman, Egyptian, Byzantine, and more remain apparent in the city’s architecture, art, and traditions. Straddling the Bosphorous Strait, the narrow passage that joins the Black Sea and the Marmara Sea, Istanbul has connected trade and culture between Europe and Asia for millennia. You will want to stop at the Grand Bazaar to get a true feel for the present-day culture of the city. Filled with merchants, artisans, and authentic wares, the bazaar provides a vibrant backdrop for a little holiday shopping. Some of the most beautiful architecture in Istanbul is found in the mosques. These sacred spaces filled with centuries of religious history inspire awe with their colorful paintings and intricate patterns throughout the interiors. Their grand appearances from the outside also create a striking view when roaming the bustling streets of the city.

 

Turkey gay cruise

Day 2 - Kepez (Troy, Gallipoli), Turkey
Kepez leaves much room for imagination as its rich culture gives way to legend and history, where the lines between the two often overlap. From Troy to Gallipoli, Turkey beckons the curious to explore its deepest reaches. Approaching the shores of seaside town Kepez, a line of historic structures on the horizon greets travelers as they arrive and bids them farewell when they depart. But beyond this view, the Turkish city holds a great deal of modernity that any explorer can appreciate for its contemporary history. From here, those filled with wanderlust can venture to the likes of Troy and Gallipoli.

 

Ephesus, Turkey gay cruise

Day 3 - Ephesus (Kusadasi), Turkey
Making port in the coastal resort town of Kusadasi from the Aegean Sea, travelers are greeted by a castle on Pigeon Island surrounded by lush, green trees. The causeway along the route connects this lone island to the mainland of Kusadasi, where visitors will disembark to begin their exploration of Turkey. Picture this: marble ruins of one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World right before your eyes. Through the rubble, you gaze upon the impressive Temple of Artemis. This is the experience of Ephesus, a UNESCO-listed, 4,000-year-old city located in Selcuk that is considered the best-preserved classical city of the eastern Mediterranean. This archaeological zone still buzzes with activity, as archaeologists continue to dig through the ruins and discover their secrets. To walk among the excavations as scientists continue to unearth the site’s remnants makes it hard not to get swept up in history.

 

Med gay cruise

Day 4 - Cruising the Mediterranean Sea
Spend the day on the high seas pampering yourself at the spa or enjoying some time on deck. Mingle with your fellow explorers and swap stories of your exploits, making plans for new ones together once you get to shore.

 

Rhodes gay cruise

Day 5 - Alindos (Rhodes), Greece
The largest of the Dodecanese islands, Rhodes contains multitudes. With influences from Hellenistic, Byzantine, Turkish, and medieval architecture, the island provides a diverse backdrop for exploration and absorbing part of Greek culture. Speaking of architecture, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World once stood in the island’s seaport: the Colossus of Rhodes. This gigantic monument made of pure, shining iron and bronze, dedicated to the Greek god Helios became the inspiration later for the Statue of Liberty. As you make your way to the town of Lindos, you will find more ruins to explore. Like Athens, Lindos has its own Acropolis that contains a temple dedicated to Athena. If hiking the trail isn’t your preference, how about riding a donkey up the long way?

 

Santorini gay cruise

Day 6 - Santorini, Greece
When you think of the quintessential whitewashed houses of Greece with blue domes and windmills sprinkled throughout the landscape, it’s Santorini that comes to mind. This island of the Cyclades contains lush scenery, a quaint charm, and a cosmopolitan feel all at once. Discover one of the most prominent excavations of prehistoric settlements in the Aegean at the Akrotiri archaeological village. Ruins from the ancient city date back as far as 1700 BCE before it was buried by a volcanic eruption. But the first inhabitants date even further back to the Late Neolithic period (fourth millennium BCE).

 

Greece Mykonos gay cruise

Days 6 & 7 - Mykonos, Greece
There’s more to Mykonos than just fabulous gay nightlife and beaches. Wandering is one of the best ways to enjoy the island of Mykonos. Its narrow, winding streets between the iconic architecture of whitewashed houses with blue domes create the archetypal image of modern-day Greece. Dotting the horizon up on the hill lie the renowned windmills of this island among the Cyclades. The sight of these windmills invokes a feeling of seeing into the past amidst a contemporary city, depicting the perfect harmony of past and present. The aroma of an old bakery, which still uses a 15th-century wood-burning stove, entices you with the delicious scents of Greek pastries and baked goods.
Enjoy Mykono's fabulous gay nightlife and beaches. Or just simply end your cruise here and enjoy a few more days of sun, party, and relaxation in this iconic gay mecca.

 

Athens Greece gay cruise

Day 8 - Athens (Piraeus), Greece
Athens is still as iconic as ever. Winding pathways from ancient times transformed into modern-day roads and streets lead you to the monumental gateway of the Acropolis and other archaeological sites. It is a land soaked in history and mythology, but not stuck in the past. As you wend through back alleys, passing the street art and getting serenaded by street musicians, you are never lost. You are simply taking a journey to an unknown destination. You may find yourself at the likes of the Church of Agioi at the southeast corner of the Holy Apostles Ancient Agora, a less-crowded historical site away from the flocks of tourists.
