Hullo Sailor!

It's time to get shipshape, and say 'bottoms up!' to your next GuysAdventure at sea.

Oh, we are a bit excited—OK, a bit more than a bit—about this Pride Cruise sailing from Melbourne in December 2022 aboard P&O's very good ship, Pacific Explorer.

This will be a celebratory cruise for members of the LGBTQIA+ community and their allies and supporters (Yew!), to honour pride in self, diversity of the community, and the legendary artists, entertainers and educators in it.

[Not in Melbs? Check out our Sydney Pride Cruise]

EXCLUSIVE CABIN ALLOCATION

GuysAdventures is pleased to have secured an exclusive allocation of cabins for your cruising pleasure.

  • 2 Penthouse Suites

  • 3 Suites

  • 15 Mini Suites

  • 20 Balcony Rooms

 

Get on-board. These will sell out quick-sticks.

And because we like the cut of your jib, we've put together some very special pricing and inclusions for you.

YOUR PRIDE CRUISE ITINERARY

Given that the Pride Cruise is a round-trip from Melbs, the itinerary is a pretty simple out-and-back affair. This trip's highlights are on board, not on shore.

Two of Australia's best-known drag artists and stars of  'RuPaul's Drag Race Down Under'—Coco Jumbo and Etcetera Etcetera—will join us all aboard Pacific Explorer. 

You'll also enjoy specialty theme nights and sub-group get-togethers that will make the weekend on the high seas something truly special.

ABOUT P&O’s PACIFIC EXPLORER

  • Capacity: 1,990 guests

  • Decks: 11

  • Length: 260m

 

See why we love Pacific Explorer. Whiz down waterslides by day, enjoy great restaurants, bars and edgy stage shows at night. There’s something for everyone. 

 

Wining. Dining.

There are F&B options galore on Pacific Explorer. Whether you want it fancy of fast—or a bit of both—you'll have no trouble finding something fab and fresh on board.

 

A number of dining options are included in your GuysAdventures fare, so you can leave the wallet in your cabin and indulge to your heart's content at:

  • Waterfront | Classic and cutting-edge cuisine.

  • Angelo's | Modern Italian dining.

  • Dragon Lady | Exotic Pan-Asian.

  • The Pantry | International dining, food-court style.

 

If you don’t feel like eating out, you can pull the room service ripcord. Breakfast in bed, anyone?

Pacific Explorer's specialty dining venues [extra cost] have gone all 'celebrity chef' with Luke's, Luke’s Bar & Grill by Luke Mangan, and Luke’s Burger Bar by Luke Mangan. Not to be outdone by the renowned Sydney pan-slinger, award-winning Melbourne chef, Johnny di Francesco, makes his presence felt at 400 Gradi, and Gradi Pronto.

The ship's specialty joints are rounded out by Shell & Bones where you can tuck into the catch of the day, or seriously good meats from the butcher.

With plenty of places to take a seat and a drink, and ease your way [or charge] into the evening's shenaningans, the good ship Pacific Explorer is the only way to cruise, honour pride in self, celebrate the diversity of the LGBTQIA+ community, and have oodles of fun doing it.
