Luxury Gay Cruise 2019

August 13–20, 2019
WindStar Cruises Star Breeze

Iceland is one of the most gay friendly destinations in the world and this is an exciting opportunity to join a group of fellow Source travelers in a once in a lifetime voyage. Best of all, we’ve timed this so you can enjoy Reykjavik’s Gay Pride celebration before the cruise August 8-11, 2019.

Dramatic scenery and curious communities coalesce on this week-long circumnavigation of Iceland. Explore a country few people will ever visit, and go far beyond the tourist hotspots to remote fjords, raging waterfalls, and small fishing villages. Get to know the independent and creative Icelanders, and watch whales and seabirds play offshore. This is yachting at its most inventive.

 

Iceland Gay Cruise 2019

 

The dramatic terrain of Iceland, known as the land of fire and ice, encompasses volcanoes, glaciers, geysers, waterfalls and fjords. Many tours feature the geologically and historically significant Thingvellir National Park. Here, the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates meet on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge.

Iceland is also home to Vatnajokull, one of Europe’s largest glaciers; the famous Blue Lagoon, a mineral-rich geothermal pool set within a large lava field; and traditional horse farms and ancient Viking sites. Iceland tours in the capital, Reykjavik, include the 19th-century Parliament House, Austurvollur Square and Tjornin Lake.

Iceland gay cruise on Star Breeze

 

Star Breeze - All-Suite Yacht

Completely renovated in 2016 and with only 212 guests, a Star Breeze cruise will make you feel like you're on board your own private yacht almost as soon as you step aboard.

The sitting area of your spacious, newly refurbished suite gives you an expansive ocean view — making it a welcome retreat.

When you're ready to make an appearance, the lounges, club, casino, screening room, and library are waiting to be explored. Take some "you" time in the tranquil WindSpa ... enjoy a dip in the pool ... work off that decadent dessert in the Fitness Center ... and, of course, you are always welcome to visit the Bridge to examine navigation charts with the Captain.

Star Breeze is large enough to pamper and entertain you, yet small enough to tuck into delightful tiny harbors and hidden coves that others can’t reach.

Akureyri, Iceland – Saturday, August 17, 2019

It lies at the end of Iceland’s longest fjord, which is 37 miles long, at sits at the base of snowcapped peaks that offer some of Iceland’s best skiing during the winter. Must-sees in Akureyri include the Listagil (art canyon) which is home to many arts and crafts galleries and shops, the beautiful church in the center of town, the botanical garden, and Hafnarstraeti, the main shopping street.This is also the perfect place to ride an Icelandic horse or soak in the sky-blue Myvatn Nature Baths.

 

Isafjordur, Iceland – Sunday, August 18, 2019

Seydisfjordur, Iceland gay cruise

 

A Complimentary Windstar Destination Discovery Event
Seydisfjordur: Natural Splendor & Quirky Charm

A place as unusual as its spelling, Seyðisfjörður is both a gorgeous fjord and a welcoming, creative town of about 700 souls. Keep your eyes open while we navigate the deep fjord to your Windstar Destination Discovery Event: It is home to puffin colonies – a type of auk that sports brightly colored beaks during mating season.

Upon arrival in this achingly picturesque town, your eye will be drawn to the most prominent of Seyðisfjörður’s timber buildings – the photogenic Blue Church. This is where your Windstar Destination Discovery Event begins. You will enjoy a concert there, as well as popular local drinks and canapés – including the Icelandic delicacy, reindeer meat.

After the performance, a traditional ring dance will be performed outside the church. Windstar guests are encouraged to join in! Mingle with the locals or check out the local bar before taking the shuttle back to the yacht or walking the short distance on your own.
