PHOTOS: It’s a Big Gay Party at Sea With the Men From Atlantis!

GayCities/Queerty co-founder Chris Bull and Swish Edition podcaster R. Scott Wallis set sail on their very first Atlantis cruise last weekend—they’ll be hitting ports of call around the Caribbean all week (lucky bastards!). Scott and Chris are aboard Royal Caribbean’s Allure of the Seas, the largest cruise ship in the world—along with Idina Minzel, Bruce Vilanch, Alex Mapa, Tupperware queen Dixie Longate and thousands of gay men (and 78 women!) ranging from 20-year-old twinks to 80-year-old grandads.

Right about now, the boys have departed tres-secluded Labadee, Haiti (above) and are on the high seas headed for Costa Maya, Mexico for another day in the sun Meanwhile on board, there’s entertainment from Broadway’s Chicago, Miss Richfield 1981, the high-diving Oceanaria show and DJs like Brett Henrichsen, and Manny Lehman.

We’ll have more later this week (the Internet connection out there ain’t the fastest), but here’s a small visual sample.
