Daddy Cruise® is revolutionizing the face of gay cruises, literally. Instead of catering to the 20-something washboard ab sector of the gay male population like most gay cruise companies, they are extending their services to include everyone. Their goal is to create a welcoming and inclusive environment, so all of their passengers feel welcome and comfortable.
LGBTQ+ owned and operated, Daddy Cruise® is primarily a cruise planning service. They assemble groups ranging from 20 to 100 or more, of all ages, races, and body types, and book space aboard larger existing cruises. You avoid the premium pricing of an ‘all gay’ cruise while you get the bonus of meeting and mingling with a broader range of travelers.
They also allow you to book cabins years in advance, so you are guaranteed the best prices. This includes single passengers as well who they try to match up using their ‘roommate program’ in order to avoid double occupancy fees that are standard on most cruise lines.
And speaking of cabins, Daddy Cruise® has four very Daddy-licious cruises coming up this year: The Alaska Cruise 2023, the Gay Singles Cruise 2023, the Halloween Cruise 2023, and the Rhine River Christmas Markets Cruise 2023. So check out all the great cabin prices for each one, and start booking today!
Alaska Cruise 2023
Join Daddy Cruise® aboard the Norwegian Sun as they voyage to Alaska. Near the top of everyone’s bucket list, Alaska is beyond anything you’ve experienced—vast, wild, inspiring, colorful, dazzling, beautiful, exciting…the list is nearly endless. You’ll sail round trip from convenient Seattle (a great destination itself) to the glaciers and gold rush towns in southern Alaska.
You’ll be aboard the lovely Norwegian Sun, which was completely refurbished (including all staterooms) just two years before the pandemic. This is one of Norwegian’s smallest ships, so expect a quieter, and more intimate cruising experience. CruiseCritic.com gives her 4 out of 5 stars and says her “…refurbished spaces boast clean, modern design…” and “…a plethora of tasty dining options abounds.”

Hooray! This year, their Gay Singles Cruise sets sail for the first time from the West Coast! This is a cruise specifically for gay singles (well, OK, others can come, too…). While not an “all-gay” cruise, we’ll be a group of (mostly) single gay guys on a “regular” cruise—having a blast together! You won’t want to miss out on the fun, the excitement, and most of all, the camaraderie. Even before you board, you’ll become part of our welcoming community of like-minded guys just looking to have a great vacation together.

Halloween Cruise 2023
Carnival Valor—Round trip from New Orleans over Halloween – October 30—November 4, 2023
Join Daddy Cruise® aboard the Carnival Valor on our holiday voyage from New Orleans, celebrating Halloween on board, and Dia de los Muertos in Mexico!
With several pools and hot tubs, the Valor is perfect for a relaxing getaway, starting in the Crescent City. Cruiseline.com rates the Valor service as 4.5 out of 5, and gives the cabins a 4.4 rating. Carnival’s low-carb menu is popular with diet-conscious passengers, but Bears may favor Guy Fieri’s Burger Joint—the best burgers at sea, or land! Another guest favorite is the Blue Iguana Cantina—an upscale taco and burrito bar with all the fixings. All this deliciousness is included in your cruise fare!
Their main hangout will be the Alchemy Martini Bar, where trained mixologists whip up concoctions on the spot—off the menu as well as newly created just for you! Afterhours, attend a stunning show in the grand Normandie Theater, or head to the Punchliner Club, featuring top-notch comedians, different every night.
Once you get to the warmer weather, you’ll want to try out WaterWorks, Carnival’s onboard water park. Beyond the usual pools and hot tubs, there’s the Twister Waterslide—hundreds of feet of fast, spiraling twists and turns to the pool below. Or, get wet with the Power Drencher—a huge bucket that dumps hundreds of gallons of water in one quick flip. Thankfully, there’s also Serenity—an adults-only quiet area that boasts its own pool, bar, hot tub and other facilities, for no extra charge!
Inside cabins are not just economical, they’re richly appointed, full-sized and roomy (180 square feet—largest of any of the major cruise lines). They include one king bed or two twin beds, a flat-screen TV, desk, ample closet and drawer space, and a private bath w/shower. Since there’s no window, you won’t have pesky sunlight to hinder your sleep at any hour! From $340 per person.
Ocean View Cabin
Ocean View Cabins are just as large, and have all the same amenities as above, but these cabins include a large window (not just a porthole), so you can see what’s going on outside as we cruise along! From $400 per person.
Balcony cabins provide a truly better cruise experience—the views from your cabin will awe and inspire you all day long. The room of 200 square feet is coupled with floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors that open to your own private verandah. This is the way to cruise the tropics! From $500 per person.
Want the ultimate? Let’s talk suites! Over 320 square feet, including a separate sitting area, floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors, and a larger verandah where you can sit and admire the scenery as it passes in front of you! Limited availability, please call for pricing.
Oh, and the government adds $94 taxes and fees per person to any of these rates. (dammit!)
All prices are per person, assuming double occupancy. Sailing solo? Solo cabins are available; call for details.

The Rhine River Christmas Markets Tour 2023
Viking Longship Einar—Amsterdam, Netherlands to Basel, Switzerland – December 6-13, 2023
Join Daddy Cruise® for an intimate and super-friendly group of Daddies, admirers and friends aboard the Viking Longship Einar for a special Christmas-themed cruise on the Rhine River. You’ll sail from cosmopolitan Amsterdam to medieval Basel, Switzerland. After you leave perhaps the most gay-friendly city in the world—Amsterdam, you’ll explore the lowlands of the Netherlands before we make several stops in Germany (including Cologne), and end just shy of the Swiss Alps, in Basel. Sailing in early December means you’ll get to visit the famous European Christmas Markets in every port, but still get home in time to spend the holidays with loved ones!
Daddy Cruise® sails out of Amsterdam on the brand-new Viking Longship Einar (she’s just a couple of years old). CruiseCritic awards her five out of five stars, and members’ ratings also average five out of five!
The first thing you notice upon boarding is all the natural sunlight—yes, views from anywhere on board will be great! Decked out in Scandinavian styling, the ship makes clever use of space. And you can feel good knowing you’re on a ‘green’ ship with hybrid diesel-electric engines that burn less fuel and produce 20% fewer emissions. Solar panels on top help fuel the engines and the ship’s chef even maintains an organic herb garden up there!
Because you’ll spend so much time in port, the focus is more on the destinations, and less on the actual sailing. That’s why a shore excursion in each port is included in the price of this cruise! Now, there’s no gym on board: you’ll get your exercise exploring the fabulous cities and towns we visit.
And there’s no theater with huge Broadway-style productions, because you’ll still be in port checking out the local nightlife instead! That said, you’ll still have plenty to appreciate on board. Service is top notch! According to CruiseCritic, food is “another highlight”, with a menu that focuses on regional cuisine and signature dishes that are “perfectly prepared.” The décor throughout is understated and minimalist. Little touches everywhere will amuse, pamper and amaze you.
IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT RIVER CRUISE PRICES: River Cruise prices, while higher than Ocean Cruise prices, include a whole lot more! Included in the prices below are all port taxes (so there are no hidden surprises there); beer, wine or soft drinks at lunch and dinner; shore excursions in every port; free wi-fi while on board; and much more!
AND, round trip economy airfare from USA or Canada is available for just $799 per person! No, that is not a typo!! So getting to your exciting Rhine River cruise won’t even cost more than getting to Miami for a run-of-the-mill Caribbean cruise would cost.
Standard Cabin (WAIT LIST ONLY)
STANDARD DOUBLE OCCUPANCY cabins start at just $2674 (tax included) per person for 150 square feet. You’ll have your choice of two twin beds or one queen bed, wardrobe, desk, flat-screen TV, private bath and shower. You even get a picture window!
French Balcony (WAIT LIST ONLY)
FRENCH BALCONY DOUBLE OCCUPANCY cabins start at $2674 (tax included) per person. All the same amenities as above, but these cabins include a large floor-to-ceiling sliding glass door that opens to a “French balcony” (a fancy cruise line label for the fact that there is no real balcony—there’s a railing there to keep you from falling out) so you can see what’s going on outside as we cruise through the countryside!
Verandah Balcony (SOLD OUT)
VERANDAH DOUBLE OCCUPANCY cabins start at $2974 (tax included) per person for 205 square feet. These cabins are larger than standard cabins, and they are similarly appointed (beautifully!). They each have a private and very real balcony accessed by floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors so you’ll enjoy a view from inside, or outside of your cabin! Imagine sitting on your private balcony watching central Europe pass by!
Suites (SOLD OUT)
SUITE DOUBLE OCCUPANCY cabins start at $4674 (tax included) per person for 275 square feet. These cabins offer the same great features of the Verandah cabins above, but they are larger, include a separate sitting room, and they are in the best locations of the ship for convenience, views and comfort. You’ll get all this, but at a price that won’t break your wallet!
Remember: These prices include almost everything—your berth and transportation from port to port including taxes, onboard entertainment and activities, high-quality excursions at every stop, all your meals and snacks including beer, wine, and soft drinks with meals, free Wi-fi on board, all Daddy Cruise® extras, and much more!
