Atlantis Gay Cruise Operator choses Lisbon
Atlantis is one of the largest operators of Lesbian & Gay Cruises in the world. Their 2013 schedule includes an Amsterdam to Barcelona cruise which will take place from the 5th to the 15th of September. The itinerary will include the following ports during their journey : Bordeaux, Bilbao, La Coruna, Cádiz, Ibiza and Lisbon. Only the ports of Ibiza and Lisbon have been chosen as overnight stops. The Lisbon stopover is scheduled for the 10th of Sepember. This means that cruise passengers will have the opportunity to spend half a day and the night in Lisbon. This will allow them to get a feel for the city and its LGBT nightlife.
Celebrity Constellation will bring 2,000 LGBT tourists
Atlantis will use the Celebrity Constellation cruise ship for this trip. The Celebrity Constellation has a capacity of approximately 2,000 passengers and 1,000 crew members. Thus, it is expected that Lisbon will welcome nearly 2,000 LGBT tourists on the 10th of September of 2013. This will be on a Tuesday which is traditionally a slow night for Lisbon, with most bars open but clubs are usually closed. Hopefully, some of the best clubs in Lisbon – Construction, Trumps and Finalmente - will choose to be open on this Tuesday night. This will allow the cruise guests to enjoy even more Lisbon’s LGBT nightlife.
LisbonBeach hopes that the Atlantis cruise guests enjoy their visit to Lisbon and help share the potential of Lisbon as a LGBT tourism destination.
