A once-in-a-lifetime Caribbean adventure awaits you.

This cruise is one of the most incredible LGBTIQ+ cruises in the world. There are very few ships that are truly perfect for queer-only cruises, and Royal Caribbean's Radiance Class ships are among the best. The Brilliance's impressive nine-story central atrium is surrounded by glass, and the elevators face outward, giving you endless ocean views throughout the ship. With him, we will sail for 7 magical nights, returning to New Orleans just in time for the biggest party in the world: Mardi Gras 2025! At the end of the cruise, we also offer an incredible 4-night stay in New Orleans. Those four nights will be filled with everything you could want to experience at Mardi Gras: grandstand seating for the best parades (Endymion, Bacchus, Zulu and Rex), delicious food, fun on the bayou, shuttles to all the venues you need and VIP tables at the Orpheus Ball.


Get ready to live an experience you will not easily forget. Sailing from New Orleans to Cozumel, Mexico, you will see places of unparalleled beauty.
