This newly-formed cruise line will be perfect for LGBTQ guests, with its laid-back attitude, open-mindedness and progressive way of thinking and operating. There's a dining venue called Razzle Dazzle that offers a Drag Queen Brunch and a big emphasis on health and well-being. The ship will have a "South Beach" like atmosphere with New York style entertainment, including comedy, circus, pop-up theatre and no traditional cruise-ship Broadway shows. Dining options are around the ship with no main dining room nor buffet area. Being adult by design ensures no children on board and ports of call like Havana and a private beach club in the Bahamas will create a great holiday atmosphere. Mark Ronson is rumored to DJ at the beach club too.
