Why Come on Pride of the Ocean?
The Pride of the Ocean Film Festival Cruise is the first and only LGBT film festival on the high seas. We are dedicated to providing our audience with a unique fusion of exciting films and luxury cruising. In August 2013, we are offering a week-long, round-trip film festival cruise to Alaska from Seattle, including a day in spectacular Glacier Bay.
The Fourth Annual Pride of the Ocean Film Festival will be hosted on board the fabulous Norwegian Pearl. Her chic bowling alley, rock climbing wall, 16 delicious dining options, 13 bars and lounges, casino, spa, pools, fitness center, The Haven Garden Villas and so much more make this Jewel Class cruise ship a destination of her own.
