On Sunday, Royal Caribbean’s Allure of the Seas — a two-month-old, 225,282-ton behemoth that’s purportedly the world’s
second-largest largest(?) cruise ship — will depart from Fort Lauderdale loaded with five thousand four hundred queers. Atlantis Events, which is leasing the ocean liner, claims the seven-night voyage to the Bahamas, St. Maarten, and St. Thomas, is the largest gay cruise ever. What could be more pleasant than boarding an enormous moving vessel packed with a small stadium’s worth of possible hook ups?
