A classic American song asks, “What are you doing New Year’s, New Year’s Eve?” If you are looking for plans the Norwegian Cruise Line ship the Sky, and Under the Rainbow Umbrella are hosting a cruise to benefit the Poverello Center. Travel Pride, the premiere agent handling tours for the LGBT community is managing the event.


The Sky disembarks on New Year’s Eve at 6 p.m., from Port of Miami for a four day, three-night cruise to benefit the Poverello Center.

“Norwegian Cruise Line is looking very forward to hosting the gay community on board the ship,” said Dale Madison of the Poverello Center and Under the Rainbow Umbrella. On board guests will enjoy special amenities such as a daily happy hour, with hors d’oeuvres, and swimwear fashion shows!

On the morning of January 1 you’ll find yourself in a new year, and on a new island! The first port-of-call will be Nassau, the Bahamas.

Enjoy the day shopping, sightseeing, and exploring before the 5:00 p.m. departure. The next port of call will be Stirrup Cay, the cruise line’s private island. On the north end of the island a private party area for LGBT guests has been arranged – truly a special way to celebrate 2011 with you and your friends! At only $479.00 per person, based on double occupancy, you can start the New Year out economically, while still having a good time and donating to a good cause.

“Anyone who books with us will not be disappointed. We have so many surprises that we don’t want to leak them out. The entertainment promises to be fabulous as well,” said an ecstatic Madison. “But I can’t name names yet.”
