Reaching Across the Gender Aisle

Alaska Festival Cruise Lineup Announced

What sets Pride of the Ocean apart from the all-male and all-female cruise ships? Pride of the Ocean is the only cruise where our gaylesbiantransgender and straight ally brothers and sisters can spend time together, enjoying  each other’s good company while sharing exciting destinations and inspired films that celebrate the masculinefeminine and full spectrum of gender expression between them.

Celebrating diversity of all shapes and sizes, below is  a partial selection of films for Pride of the Ocean’s Seattle to Alaska cruise on August 1-14, 2015. Please consider joining us, not only to see the films, but to meet, socialize and make new friendswhile experiencing the majesty of the Alaskan wilderness.

The true delight of the trip was… the friends we made on the cruise.
